Uneven Terrain

You will encounter uneven terrain when you decide to venture into nature where the ground is often uneven, rocky, slippery or muddy with and a fair amount of uphill and downhill obstacles.

 

We have socks that are more comfortable when it comes to running on uneven terrain. These often provide better ankle support, better shock protection on your calves and will prevent you from getting sprains. 

 

Compression socks or sleeves help in facilitating the backflow of blood and thereby reducing your muscle fatigue. It also helps you in adapting quickly to different weather conditions and prevent injuries.
