Grip 4 Performance Football Socks

Dean Ariola

Another German brand has joined in the production of grip socks in the form of Falke and their Grip 4 football socks. The brand is clearly inspired by the rise of Trusox despite its humble beginnings and like Austria’s Tapedesign, Falke Grip 4 hopes to make a dent in the grip sock market regardless of their current brand recognition.

The centre of the Falke Grip 4’s grip function is the silicon nubs in and out of the footbed. The premium material allows not only the usual comfortable compression and stretch but also a decent absorption of moist and sweat. And through its triple-layer design, Falke Grip 4 is able to apply a certain amount of temperature regulation.
