THE STORY

STORY

Feet of athletes are subject to extreme mechanical stress which can cause several injuries. A sock is a barrier between the foot and the shoe that should ensure protection while enabling controlled movement, optimising the temperature of the foot as well as the moisture wicking.

STORY

This motivated us to create intelligently designed sports socks that will ensure comfort and quality for professional and recreational athletes during their sports activities protecting their feet and improving their sports performance.

STORY

The idea to design a different kind of sports socks was conceived by the young Slovenian entrepreneur Tadej Glavač who himself is an enthusiastic athlete. However, he failed to find the right footwear and socks that would protect his feet and give him the sensation of stability in sports shoes so the foot wouldn't move too much inside the shoe during activity. Another major problem was sweaty feet causing painful blisters hindering him from further activity.

STORY

Tadej started to think about how he could improve his sports socks so they would serve him even better during sports activities making training easier and giving that superb feeling of comfort, support and protection. This was the beginning of GO4GOAL sports socks.

STORY

RESEARCH

We set our minds to create a new generation of sports socks and we started by researching materials and their characteristics. The materials were chosen based on research and consultation with fabric experts. Then we consulted orthopaedists and physiotherapists to help determine the areas of the foot that needed to be protected and cushioned. In this way each material has been used in the parts of the sock where they serve their specific purpose.

STORY

PROTOTYPES

We created three different models. The ANKLE sock is the lowest, just covering the ankle, the CREW sock reaches mid-calf and the KNEE-HIGH which, as the name implies, reaches the knee. All three models have the same general characteristics, however, the highest model is also equipped with active compression alleviating vibrations and improving coordination.

STORY

TESTS

First, we wanted to check the quality and functionality of GO4GOAL sports socks. We produced more than 200 prototypes and asked professional as well as recreational athletes from different disciplines to test them. To keep it brief, they were impressed.
