Soft Wide-stretch Top

The cuff of the sock can stretch open wider than 27cm/10", far more than other socks, helping to avoid leg constriction, even with swollen feet. The cuff includes a special fiber (used nowhere else in the sock) which allows it to grip the leg firmly, yet comfortably, with minimal compression.

Delayed Elastic Recovery

Delayed Elastic Recovery (DER) technology allows the sock to comfortably adapt to your foot and its movements without resistance. Other socks use regular Lycra or elastomeric fibers so that when they are stretched, they resist and immediately stretch back. These can place excessive pressure on the foot, restricting blood circulation and causing skin irritation. PROTECT iT socks’ DER technology is much more advanced: the unique blend of fibers in PROTECT iT socks do not resist when stretched, but instead exhibit delayed elastic recovery. The result is a sock that acts like a “second skin,” which constantly adapts to the shape and movements of each foot.

Unique Fibre Formula

The engineers who created PROTECT iT socks did not compromise on their specifications for the materials used to construct the socks. In fact, they examined and tested hundreds of different cotton fibres until they found those that met their demanding requirements. Furthermore, they designed and manufactured brand new synthetic fibres to suit the special needs of each separate zone of the sock. The world’s finest cotton and only the finest-quality synthetic materials are used in PROTECT iT socks, resulting in a softer, dryer, more protective and more comfortable sock than any other in existence.

Silver Ions Within the Fibres

Both foot odour and infections are the result of bacteria or fungi multiplying on the foot. To combat these microbes, the polymer of the PROTECT iT socks’ synthetic fibres incorporate silver ions (Ag+). These ions disrupt the ability of microbes to multiply, preventing the odor caused by bacteria and fungi on the foot, and eliminating many infections before they start.

Moisture Pump Action

Special dual-layer construction pumps moisture away from the skin, promoting both foot comfort and health. The Moisture Pump Action in PROTECT iT socks is the natural result of the sock’s dual-layer construction: an inside synthetic layer wicks moisture away from the foot, while an outer cotton layer keeps moisture away from the skin and “breathes,” allowing moisture to dissipate and escape away from the foot.

Wrinkle-free Fabric

The unique fabric used in PROTECT iT socks is wrinkle-free and self-straightening such that annoying (and possibly harmful) folds and wrinkles will never appear around the foot. In order to create such a fabric, special composite threads had to be developed with the exact properties required to produce a fabric that would never wrinkle. A proprietary manufacturing method was developed over more than two years especially for PROTECT iT socks in order to yield such threads.

Arch Support with Anti-slip Technology

Arch Support is an elastic anti-slip band around the center of the foot which keeps the sock firmly in place while constantly adapting to the shape and movement of the foot, without undesirable compression. This feature prevents the sock from twisting inside the shoe and from sliding forward towards the toes.

Ventilation Zone

With each step, heat is generated at the bottom of the foot and the heat’s path of least resistance is up through the toes. Thus, the area between the toes is often where bacteria and fungi thrive. In PROTECT iT socks, a mesh-knit ventilation zone stretches across the area above where the toes meet the foot, ventilating this sensitive area in a highly-effective manner. This clearly-visible “air vent” directs moisture up and away from the foot and toes, and prevents it from collecting in areas that could contribute to bacterial growth. This provides excellent moisture dissipation and temperature regulation.

Achilles Tendon Protection

PROTECT iT socks provide extra protection against chafing where the Achilles tendon meets the back of the shoe. This is an important area to protect when breaking in new shoes and for people with sensitive feet.

Y Heel Pocket

PROTECT iT socks’ Y Heel Pocket design locks the sock heel in place using differing thicknesses of material, which align the heel within the sock, while a Y-shaped elastic mechanism gently holds the entire radius of the rear of the sock in place around the heel.

Smooth-inside Seamless Toe

Unlike most socks, which contain a visible protruding seam where the toe area of the sock is sewn closed, PROTECT iT socks feature the ultimate toe closure, which cannot be felt even in tight-fitting shoes. This hand-looped (hand-knitted), ridge-free closure completely eliminates the friction and pressure that other socks inflict on the sensitive toe area.

Multi-zone Construction

Different fibres and different thicknesses in various zones of the sock provide optimum comfort and protection for each area of the foot. Special production techniques had to be designed in order to achieve this highly-complex final product.

Yes. Firstly, different thicknesses and different fibers are used in each part of the sock, providing optimum comfort and protection for each area of the foot. (Special production techniques had to be designed in order to achieve this highly-complex final product.) Secondly, PROTECT iT socks provide extra protection against chafing where the Achilles tendon meets the shoe. This is an important area to protect when breaking in new shoes and for people with sensitive feet. Thirdly, the unique fabric used in PROTECT iT socks is wrinkle-free and self-straightening such that irritating folds and wrinkles will never appear around the foot. Lastly, unlike most socks, which contain a visible protruding seam where the toe area of the sock is sewn closed, PROTECT iT socks feature the ultimate toe closure, which cannot be felt even in tight-fitting shoes. This hand-looped (hand-knitted), ridge-free closure completely eliminates the friction and pressure that other socks inflict on the sensitive toe area.

No. Unlike most socks, which contain a visible protruding seam where the toe area of the sock is sewn closed, PROTECT iT socks feature the ultimate toe closure, which cannot be felt even in tight-fitting shoes. This ridge-free closure, made possible by slowly and carefully hand-knitting every sock one at a time, completely eliminates the friction and irritation that other socks inflict on the sensitive toe area.

Firstly, the cuff of the sock can stretch open wider than 27cm/10", far more than other socks, helping to avoid any chance of leg constriction even when the foot or angle are swollen. The cuff includes a special fiber (used nowhere else in the sock) which allows it to grip the leg firmly, yet comfortably, with minimal compression. Additionally, Delayed Elastic Recovery (DER) technology allows the sock to comfortably adapt to your foot and its movements without resistance. Other socks use regular Lycra or elastomeric fibers so that when they are stretched, they resist and immediately stretch back. These can place excessive pressure on the foot, restricting blood circulation and causing skin irritation. PROTECT iT socks’ DER technology is much more advanced: the unique blend of fibers in PROTECT iT socks do not resist when stretched, but instead exhibit delayed elastic recovery. The result is a sock that acts like a “second skin,” which constantly adapts to the shape and movements of each unique foot.

Other socks made for diabetics use regular Lycra or elastomeric fibers so that when they are stretched, they resist and immediately stretch back. These can place excessive and harmful pressure on the foot, particularly when swollen, restricting blood circulation and causing skin irritation. PROTECT iT socks employ a much more advanced Delayed Elastic Recovery technology: the unique blend of fibers in PROTECT iT socks do not resist when stretched, but instead exhibit delayed elastic recovery. The result is a sock that acts like a “second skin,” which constantly adapts to the shape and movements of each foot.

PROTECT iT socks were developed specifically to address all the risk factors which impact the feet of diabetics, based on years of research in cooperation with a panel of medical specialists and people with diabetes. This intensive research and development produced a unique sock which functions like a second skin, perfectly adapting to the anatomy and movements of every unique foot. This sock completely eliminates foot/shoe friction and irritation, actively draws moisture away from the foot, combats odor- and infection-causing bacteria and fungi, does not place excessive pressure on the skin and stays perfectly in place all day long. The result is maximum foot protection, comfort and health. 

Foot odour is the result of bacteria multiplying on the foot. The polymer of the sock’s synthetic fibers incorporate silver ions (Ag+) which disrupt the ability of bacteria to multiply, preventing the odor caused by bacteria on the foot. Also, since bacteria require moisture to thrive, the Moisture Pump Action and Ventilation Zone technologies described in the previous answer help the foot remain dry, thus preventing the growth of odor-causing bacteria. In fact, even people with sweaty feet can even wear PROTECT iT socks for a few days in a row before any odour would become apparent!

Skin irritation and calluses can easily become nasty blisters and then ulcers, especially on the feet of people with diabetes. Causes of the skin irritation that start this chain of events include friction between the foot and the shoe (especially in the areas of the ball of the foot, the heel and the toes) and raised seams inside the sock rubbing against the foot. Also, when walking on sock fabric which has become wrinkled, folded or bunched up, foot wounds may result. PROTECT iT socks eliminate these concerns by ensuring a smooth, wrinkle-free and anatomically-adapted fit at all times. This “second skin” is accomplished by a number of technologies built into the sock: (1) unique wrinkle-free fabric, (2) anatomical padding zones which provide the exact amount of padding desirable for each portion of the foot without allowing bunching, (3) “arch support” elastic anti-slip band and (4) “Y Heel Pocket” heel grip.

Maintaining a dry foot is critical to both the comfort and health of the foot, and PROTECT iT socks accomplish this with two distinct built-in technologies: (1) Moisture Pump Action is the natural result of the sock’s dual-layer construction. An inside synthetic layer wicks moisture away from the foot, while an outer cotton layer “breathes,” allowing moisture to dissipate and escape away from the skin. (2) A Ventilation Zone stretches across the area above where the toes meet the foot. This clearly-visible “air vent” directs moisture up and away from the foot and toes, and prevents it from collecting in areas that could contribute to bacterial growth.

Firstly, highly-breathable cotton comprises about 2/3 of the sock, preventing heat from becoming trapped within the sock. Furthermore, a Ventilation Zone stretches across the area above where the toes meet the foot. This clearly-visible “air vent” directs heat up and away from the foot and toes, greatly reducing the temperature of the air around the foot.

PROTECT iT socks are constructed with two special features which ensure that they stay in place all day without the “bunching” and “creeping” which can cause discomfort and medical problems: (1) “Arch support” is an elastic anti-slip band around the center of the foot which keeps the sock firmly in place while constantly adapting to the shape and movement of the foot, without undesirable compression. (2) The “Y Heel Pocket” design locks the sock heel in place using differing thicknesses of material, which align the heel within the sock, and a Y-shaped elastic mechanism which gently holds the rear of the sock in place around the heel.

PROTECT iT socks are made with a blend of the world’s finest cotton and uniquely-formulated synthetic fibres. This combination results in an exceptionally soft and flexible material which excels at keeping moisture away from the foot: the synthetic fibres wick moisture away from the foot while the outer cotton layer “breathes” allowing moisture to escape away from the skin. Furthermore, the synthetic fibers contain silver ions which combat the growth of bacteria which cause odour and infection.

Many people open their sock drawer every morning looking for their favorite, most comfortable socks. People who have worn PROTECT iT socks for just one day typically decide to throw out all their other socks and wear only PROTECT iT from then on! The fact is that these unique socks feel so good, and provide so many benefits, that they are simply the most comfortable socks you will ever wear.

People with diabetes are more prone to develop various foot problems due to reduced feeling in the foot, a condition known as neuropathy. Small irritations in the shoe have the potential to quickly become serious medical problems. Diabetes may also reduce blood flow to the feet, slowing the healing process and weakening defenses against infection. As a result, sores and blisters may develop into non-healing wounds which can lead, in the worst cases, to amputation.

PROTECT iT socks feature all the characteristics of socks as recommended by leading health organizations such as the American Diabetes Association (ADA), Diabetes UK, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organisation (WHO):

  • contain cotton which help keep your feet dry
  • are lightly padded and fit well
  • are seamless
  • don’t wrinkle
  • are not too tight
