What is the difference between crew socks for different sports?


1. Yoga socks


The bottom of the yoga socks has a rubber particle anti-skid design. Special anti-skid socks can not only effectively prevent yoga practitioners from slipping their feet when doing movements, but also effectively protect the safety of yoga practitioners. Secondly, yoga practitioners sweat when practicing barefoot, which is very unhygienic on the floor or public yoga mats. Therefore, using yoga socks can not only effectively maintain their own hygiene, but also maintain public health.


2. Running socks


Running socks are designed for runners who pursue fine and breathable running socks. Today’s high-performance socks not only keep your feet dry and comfortable, but they also act as cushions and support your feet. Running socks can provide support and help prevent slipping.


3. Ski socks


When skiing, when the socks are too low, the skin will directly contact the snow shoes and inner boots, and it is easy to cause swelling and pain due to friction. Therefore, it is necessary to design long socks (high waist socks) for ski socks.


4. Basketball socks


Basketball socks are divided into two types: stockings and socks. The purpose of the stockings on the basketball court is completely different from that on the football court: football players always stockings up to the knees, which is to fix the guard plate of the front bone of the calf, and although basketball stockings also have the function of tightly wrapping the calf muscles, their sports protection degree is not as big as football stockings.


5. Football socks


Football socks generally only have stockings. It mainly protects the legs:


  • Firstly, wrap the leg guards. Generally, it can be wrapped in a tile-like protective gear with a length of 25 to 30 cm and a width of 5 to 8 cm. It is fixed in front of the calf tibia with its own Velcro to prevent the player's calf from colliding with the opponent's shoe spikes during the game. When injuries, it’s better use stockings to wrap the leg shield for secondary fixation. In addition, it can also be used with mutual ankles.


  • Secondly, protect the skin. Prevent players from scratching their legs when they fall to the ground or touch the ground during the game.


  • In addition, some players use it to better fix the calf muscles and feel more comfortable to exert force.



How to choose crew socks?


Firstly, in the choice of material, it is necessary to choose a pure cotton texture. The pure cotton material is soft and absorbs sweat.


Secondly, the elasticity of sports socks is better. The socks with good elasticity fit snugly and won't slip.


Thirdly, crew socks are not as thicker as possible. It is necessary to decide whether to choose a thin or thick one according to the specific situation. Generally speaking, people who are prone to sweating should choose a thicker one; conversely, choose a thinner one.


Fourthly, wear special sports socks for special items. Wear special socks when participating in certain sports. For some antagonistic events, such as football, socks have a high waist. The purpose is to protect the calf, which must not be ignored during sports.


Finally, it is best to choose sports socks with antibacterial and deodorant functions.


Some players don't like the restraint of crew socks. They shorten the stockings and even push them to the ankles. Such as: Inter Milan veteran Recoba, Arsenal winger Hleb, they all have extraordinary footwork, maybe stockings will limit their magic!
