Testing & Results In the early years, we received an overwhelming positive response to the product.
It came from consumers, and also health care and sports medicine professionals. Our padded
socks allowed people to participate in their chosen activity longer than they had thought
possible, and in many cases, pain-free. These health care and sports medicine professionals
told us they were recommending our padded socks to their patients who experienced foot
pain or other foot conditions. So, when medical researchers asked us to test them, we took
that opportunity. Over the past 20 years, our padding has been the subject of eight
independent clinical research studies that were published in peer-reviewed medical journals.
The results showed that our padding reduces foot pain, blisters and other foot conditions
by absorbing impact loads and shearing forces, reducing pressures on the foot, and also by
wicking (or moving) moisture away from the foot. We use this same clinically-tested padding
in all of our products designated with the padded sock with cross icon. They are made
in activity-specific designs for people whose feet hurt during or after their activity.
