DETAILSDrymax 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. Maximum Protection 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 (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. Top mesh air panels which release heat and sweat vapor out of the top of the sock and shoe. Socks are not the only cause of blisters; therefore no sock can prevent all blisters.
While distance running, feet get hot and perspire, causing socks to become wet. Moisture significantly increases friction between socks and skin. The higher the friction, the greater the chance of getting blisters. 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.
