Blisters are one of the most common foot injuries.
They are painful, affect the way you naturally walk causing other injuries/ strains throughout your body and if not treated properly straight away can get infected.
Blisters are Small bubbles of skin filled with clear fluid that can appear anywhere on your foot. Some are painless, but others can be extremely painful – enough to cause you to stop your activity. They are often not complained about as it is seen as a sign of weakness.
Foot blisters are naturally formed when a number of conditions occur in your shoe. These conditions are heat, moisture and friction. Anyone wearing shoes will experience all these to different degrees depending on atmospheric temperature, ground moisture and the level of excursion their body is under.
ArmaSkin anti-blister second skin socks address all three conditions that cause blisters:
- The Si fusion polymer friction coating adheres to the skin and PREVENTS any FRICTION that can occur naturally between socks and skin. Any friction generated in the shoe is absorbed by the outer fabric.
- In addition the Si fusion polymer is bacteria static so the socks can be worn for prolonged periods of time.
- The Si fusion polymer coating is macro porous and hydrophobic (water hating) therefore REPELS all MOISTURE away from the skin keeping it drier.
- Better HEAT dissipation is achieved thanks to the hydrophobic/ hydrophilic moisture management. i.e one side of the fabric is water hating the other side is water loving.
If you think your activity is going to give you blisters ArmaSkin anti-blister second skin socks should be the first thing you put on your feet.
