Atak Grip Socks

Dean Ariola

C-Grip socks are football socks produced by Atak Sports, a well-established sports brand in Tuam, County Galway in the west of Ireland. Atak Sports have a lot of sports gear products, and C-Grip socks is one of their forays in football.

The grip of Atak’s C-grip socks feature a unique square-shaped silicone elements that are a bit glossy and tacky. They are relatively more-spaced and also have some placements along the edges of the underfoot. A mesh construction on the top gives some ventilation to the socks to help keep the foot dry and cool. The ankles are noticeably padded for more stability and to minimise the risk of injuries. Atak Sports also uses a high-grade mix of Polyamide and Cotton for a soft and comfortable material construction.

Atak grip socks are available in sizes 3-5, 6-8, 9-12. Multiple colours are available in the mid-leg and full length models.

Wearing Atak Grip Socks

With all the qualities we got from wearing a pair of Atak grip socks in trainings and matches (comfort, compression and affordability) Atak really puts things in perspective and presents itself as an example of not needing to spend on expensive brands just to get performance benefits. The challenge of course with the likes of Atak is finding and purchasing them. Yes, you can always order them online like we did. But sometimes accessibility is sometimes a factor when choosing which performance socks to wear, especially when you need one right here, right now.

But if you can get past the fact that you might need to order online and wait for the shipping, then you might join us in saying that we feel that Atak is worth the investment. We notice a difference in our running when we have Atak, and this pair gave us maximum value in terms of durability. Grip is there, but we think that there are some who would prefer those who have elements that feel more subtle under the feet than the relatively chunky grip elements of Atak.
