  1. A dual sock arrangement ie liner sock and outer sock, allows slight slippage between the sock layers thus reducing the amount of sideways loading (shearing force) transferred to the skin layers while walking. A good liner sock thus has an outer surface with a low Coefficient of Friction (COF) which makes this slippage efficient.
  2. An effective liner sock also shifts moisture away from the skin to the outer sock thus keeping the skin surface drier and stronger.
  3. As well as reducing shear forces, less friction between surfaces means there will be less damaging heat generated from sock friction transferred to the skin.
  4. Liner socks go over the entire foot thus taking the guesswork out of where hot spots may occur.
  5. As a tight fitting protective layer, potentially damaging grit or sand picked up on the hike or run can be kept away from directly contacting the skin surface. (nevertheless grit and sand should be removed as soon as possible)
  6. Liner socks maintain their effectiveness over long periods of wear whereas some other preventative measures such as tapes, patches and lubricants can lose their effectiveness over time especially when subjected to adverse situations such as immersion in water.
  7. When taking a break, liner socks can be simply removed, even washed, and be ready for easy reuse.
  8. Should a hotspot develop when wearing a liner sock, unlike tapes which can be difficult and distressing to remove a liner sock is easily removed to allow timely inspection and treatment.

ArmaSkin liner socks, in addition to providing the above benefits, are special in that they:

  • have an internal silicone layer which drives moisture away from the skin as well as keeping the liner sock firmly fixed on the foot;
  • are contoured and have flat seams that maximise accurate and comfortable fit and;
  • are easily washed for repeat use.
