The Taping Effect Supports the Arches and Mitigates Damage

There are three arches on the human sole, and physical balance is maintained by connecting the three points of the roots of the big toe, the roots of the little toe, and the heels. Arches also play the role of a suspension (shock absorber) that cushions the impact on the body when landing.
However, this function of suspension will decrease due to accumulated fatigue and stiffened muscles. Then, feet cannot absorb all the landing impact, which may place a heavy burden on the knees and lower back.
Goldwin socks are equipped with a taping effect that supports the arches of the sole.

Arch Support Socks

Socks that Support the Three Arches with a Taping Effect

Cross taping on the sole supports the arch of the foot and mitigates the decrease in functioning of the “longitudinal” arch.The longitudinal arch is very important in absorbing impact and maintaining propulsion force by the spring role.
These socks also firmly support the “transverse” arch by covering the tips of the metatarsal bones located at the root of the foot. Generally, deformation of the transverse arch causes spread foot (a condition where toes spread transversely), which is said to cause a feeling of foot and/or knee fatigue, as well as bunions. Taping is applied in a way that wraps up from top to bottom while also simultaneously supporting the transverse arch and longitudinal arch, the specification of which was uniquely developed by Goldwin, and has been patented.

In addition, By further raising the Achilles tendon part, discomfort while running caused by touching and being rubbed by the opening of a shoe is eased.
Cushioning characteristic is improved by using pile fabric in the heel and toe. However, if it is too thick, it will make it harder to convey foot sensation; therefore, pile fabric in the toe is used only on the sole (the nail part is thin) and overall thickness is suppressed. Strong nylon yarn (reinforcing yarn) is used at the tip of the toe, so that it is not easily torn.

Paper Fiber Socks

Lasting Freshness

Paper Fiber Socks wick moisture not through harmful hydrophobic chemicals, but through the unique rough texture of the paper fiber. The result is a performance sock that protects your feet and aids long runs in hot weather unlike any sock you’ve worn before.

Paper Fiber is exceptionally abrasion resistance. Using a traditional Japanese technique, the yarns are twisted with stretchy nylon. Together, the paper fiber and nylon create a yarn that is five times stronger than the synthetic yarn commonly used in sport socks. Thus, Paper Fiber socks are ideal for high-intensity sports.

The taping at the sole supports the arch and keeps the height of vertical arch. It also wraps the metatarsal region of the foot and supports a lateral arch. Securing arches in place absorbs impacts and supports its cushioning function which maintains feet’s propelling force.

Trekking Socks

Wool Socks ideal for Trekking

Thick fabric is used from the toes to the ankle to enhance cushioning and fit.
The rest is made of wool, maintaining the foot cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Wool's excellent moisture absorption and desorption properties keep the foot comfortable.
These socks come with added support around the ankle for a better hold to increase foot stability required for trekking.
Cross-taping on the sole supports the arch of the foot and prevents the vertical arch from breaking down. The support area uses special thread that optimizes the taping effect. It also covers the tip of metatarsals and supports the lateral arch.
Maintaining the arches allows them to absorb impacts from landing the foot and maintains the propulsion role of the foot with its spring-like action.
Medium and thick; available in two styles to choose from depending on the season and needs.
