Drymax Socks : MAXIMUM PROTECTION TRAIL Running - 1/4 Crew High

Note the special edition Sharman sock endorsed by Ian Sharman (with Sharman logo and Union Jack flag on heel, when folded down) is the Royale / Red / Anthracite colour.

Maximum Protection Trail Running socks are made using the patented Blister Guard® system. This system incorporates Friction Free® Profilen® fibers throughout the entire foot area of the sock. Profilen’s chemical name is Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). PTFE has the lowest Coefficient of Friction of any solid material.

Socks are not the only cause of blisters; therefore no sock can prevent all blisters.

Maximum Protection Running socks are a FDA Class 1 Medical Device.

Blisters on the feet are the most common sports injury and seem inevitable when running ultra long distances. One study in the Journal of Sports Medicine 2004;38:498-501 reported that up to 39% of marathon runners experienced foot blisters while running marathons.

Until now, there has been limited success preventing blisters. The successful runners have learned to run with the pain of having blisters. Runners have tried everything to prevent blisters including old favorites such as Vaseline®, powders and tape. These may help for a short period of time, but are not effective over long distances and may actually help to cause blisters.

While distance running, feet get hot and perspire, causing socks to become wet. Moisture significantly increases friction (stickiness) between socks and skin. The higher the friction, the greater the chance of getting blisters. Higher friction limits skin surface movement, yet still allows inner tissue movement causing a shearing effect. This physically separates the two layers which fill with fluid, forming a blister.

PREVENTING BLISTERS CAN PREVENT FURTHER INJURY
A study to determine the association of blisters with subsequent injuries was conducted by RS Bush, SK Brodine & RA Shaffer with 2,130 male US Marine Corps recruits participating in initial physical training at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego, California. The study found that recruits with blisters were 50% more likely to experience an additional training-related injury.

BLISTER GUARD® SYSTEM
Drymax Maximum Protection Running socks were designed to prevent blisters during triathlons, marathons and ultra-long distance runs. In addition, they will help people who are just prone to getting blisters.

Friction Free Blister Protection

Maximum Protection Trail running socks are made using the patented Blister Guard® system. This system incorporates Friction Free® Profilen® fibers throughout the entire foot area of the sock. Profilen’s chemical name is Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). PTFE has the lowest Coefficient of Friction of any solid material.

Profilen and Drymax fibers blended together provide Maximum Protection for your feet. This scientific approach keeps feet dry and the friction between the skin and sock low. Runners who wear Maximum Protection Running socks will have cooler, drier, more comfortable feet, while significantly lowering the chance of getting blisters.

3D ADVANCED FIT
Drymax's five sock sizes fit because they were developed on special 3D shaped foot models. Each size sock includes a (S, M, L, XL, or XXL) color size mark for easy match-up after laundering.

ACTIVE ODOR CONTROL
The MicroZap® antimicrobial in the Drymax® Fibers is a silver - zirconium phosphate ceramic ion-exchange resin. It fights odor-causing bacteria, helping keep socks odor free. Not a topical treatment; MicroZap is molecularly infused into our Drymax fibers. Being non-migratory and non-toxic, MicroZap provides long term Active Odor Control.

LONG LASTING COMFORT, DURABILITY & LOOKS
The special fibers used in our Drymax Socks have a comfortable springiness and do not get stiff, shrink or lose shape over time. They are designed to last a long time using the highest quality fibers, and abrasion resistant nylon fiber reinforcements in the normal wear areas.

Brilliant June 26, 2018
Reviewer: Adrian Brooks from Newcastle, Tyne and Wear United Kingdom  
As usual with this superb store, top notch service and delivery.
I am so happy with these socks. A friend recommended these after I could not finish a 100 miler after 76 miles due to blisters. Using these, along with new shoes, I finished my first 100 mile ultra this weekend with absolute minimal foot issue.

Incredible product. Brilliant service. Massively recommended. Thank you

No blisters! June 25, 2018
Reviewer: Hywel Griffiths from South Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿  
When ordering gear socks I was skeptical if their claims, but with the massive blisters I had from running for just 9 mile averages in my inov8 mud claw talons I was ready to try anything and if £30 pair of socks was potentially the way forward, I was willing to try it out.

Went out and ticked off 12 miles with no problems at all, not even the inkling of a hotspot, would definitely recommend them!

Drymax MAXIMUM PROTECTION TRAIL Running Socks - 1/ May 29, 2018
Reviewer: Fred from Cheshire United Kingdom  
Bought these to run the Chester Ultra 100. During the race I changed socks 3 times, and never did more than 30miles in any socks. I used two pairs of the very expensive Drymax socks for the first two legs. I now have holes in one pair of the socks at the end of my big toe.
