Frequently Asked Questions

What do Grip Socks do in Rugby?

Grip socks are designed to enhance the foot grip inside your rugby boots. They aim to reduce internal slippage, which increases both comfort and performance during a game. These socks incorporate sticky elements, usually silicone or rubber pads, that create contact between the sock, boot, and foot. This results in improved responsiveness that can be crucial for success in a rugby match.

By reducing the internal movement of the foot, grip socks enhance the stability of the foot and therefore performance. They also decrease the chance of blisters due to less movement between the foot, sock, and boot1.

In addition, grip socks allow players to use a consistent sock no matter what team they play for. If a player changes teams or if the rugby team changes its kit supplier, the quality of the sock supplied will not affect the player’s performance as they can continue to use their favourite grip sock.

So, in essence, grip socks in rugby provide enhanced grip, improved comfort, and better overall performance. They are a valuable piece of kit for any serious rugby player.
