Geelong Podiatrist – STEIGEN SOCKS

June 10, 2020

Podiatry@belmont is now stocking Steigen running socks.  Steigen running socks are designed by athletes who understand the requirements of a high performance sock. Use Steigen running socks to enhance your performance, as Steigen guarantees no blisters.

Blisters are caused by two things:

  1. Moisture – If your feet are wet or sweat due to the conditions you are running in, an environment is created where blisters can form. In Steigen socks, there are NO elements of cotton, wool, or bamboo. Being heavy in nature, these fabrics have the ability to hold moisture that ultimately cause discomfort. Our combination of Lycra and Microfiber Nylon creates a quick-drying effect, preventing moisture from being withheld inside the athlete’s foot.
  2. Friction – Friction is going to be the inevitable during exercise; how we manage it will determine the level of comfort inside your shoe. Having a range of different features, Steigen socks have been specifically designed to benefit our customers. An additional percentage of Lycra has been key in Steigen’s design, allowing the arch of the foot to be supported, no air pockets to be created, and therefore preventing any friction. Furthermore, the reinforced Lycra around the sock band prevents no slipping or rubbing from occurring inside the foot.

Steigen socks are available in different lengths, a multitude of colours and oversized socks for the + 12 foot.  Call in to 47 Thomson St, Belmont to see the range.
