The soles of the feet are covered by a particularly dense network of sensory receptors. As demonstrated very impressively by the reflexes stimulated when somebody tickles them. X-BIONIC socks with Effektor Technology use these natural skin sensory functions on the soles of the feet to enhance them in a unique way. A controlled stimulus intensity is conducted partly by compression above the stimulus threshold. The stimulation of partial areas generates a continuous stream of specific information which tells the brain to send messengers. These messengers play an essential role in the interaction of cells within an organism. They control the body‘s metabolic processes.

Guarantees perfect hold without slipping or constricting.
Conducts air away from the anatomically shaped footbed via the inside surface of the foot and thus ensures that moist,overheated air is pumped out of even tight fitting shoes with every movement.
You can breathe. You’re intelligent. Aren’t socks too?
And this is the challenge. How can we perfectly protect and support our feet and recreate the natural, dry barefoot climate at the same time? The revolution: X-SOCKS. The X-SOCKS research team learned from evolution – and completed it by an essential, revolutionary step.
The breakthrough is the development of the AirConditioning Channel. For the first time a sock is capable to dissipate warm, moist air and provide the foot with cool, dry fresh air. Your feet can now breath in socks and shoes!
Asymmetrical impact-absorbing protectors made of hollow-core Robur fibers cushion and protect toes at the pressure-sensitive tips.
Everyone knows the unpleasant feeling when a toe constantly bumps up against the shoe. After a while you have a painful sore spot. The chances of this problem occurring while doing sports is quite high because continuous movement can cause the foot to slide forward in the shoe. To buffer the foot from this pressure the ToeTip Protector is made of Robur that cushions and protects the toes as well the especially sensitive tips of the toes.
Guards against blisters and chafing.
Who wants to be top needs to take care of his toes. The asymmetric Toe Protector absorbs pressure and perfectly hugs the contour of the Toe Protector absorbs pressure and perfectly hugs the contour of theasymmetric toe area.
The unique crossover ankle bands, knit of elastic materials, give stressed tendons, muscles and joints secure hold and stability without limiting freedom of movement.
Our feet depend on the fine tuned interaction of tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. One careless step can be enough to destroy this experienced team. Therefore the ankles require extra protection without inhibiting the foot’s freedom. This is why we invented the X-Cross Bandage. It is a cross ankle bandage knitted from elastic material, it stabilises the ankle and optimally supports the foot’s function.
Traverse AirFlow Channel System:
Regulates the temperature of the sole of the foot and conducts moist and overheated air into the AirConditioning Channel.
The traverse ventilation system insures that large areas of the sole of the foot, areas normally tightly pressed into the shoe, are amply supplied with fresh air. For this, the pumping action of the arch of the foot is mobilised. When you step down, the flattening of the arch forces fresh air around the entire sole of the foot and, when the arch lifts again, air is drawn out of the shoe.
Anatomically shaped footbed:
For “L”-left and “R”-right foot with integrated AirConditioning Channel.
Our entire body weight is borne by only a few small areas of the foot. Using the best technology available today, the anatomically shaped footbed aligned to “R”- right and “L”- left foot, protects and supports these high stress areas, the soles of foot. The AirConditioning Channel starts at the foot‘s arch and leads out of the shoe. Heat and moisture are continually regulated by the pumping effect which ensures that, with every step, fresh air flows around the foot.
Guards against pressure and friction.
The heel area is particularly prone to blisters: The Heel Protector absorbs friction and thus effectively decreases the risk of blistering.
Ankle bones are often scraped up during falls since they jut out from the sides of the legs. The crescent-moon-shaped alignment of the pads offers the best possible protection without affecting the ventilation ability of the AirConditioning Channel.

Additional air direction system.
Lambertz-Nicholson Achilles Tendon Protector:
Thanks to its highly abrasion-resistant and impact-absorbing material, the protector protects the Achilles tendons from pressure points and friction from the top of the shoe. The sensitive Achilles tendons arent stressed because they are encased in the cushioning pod.
The special Lambertz-Nicholson Achilles Tendon Protector prevents strain on the sensitive Achilles tendon because it is protected by a surrounding cushion. This shockabsorbing cushion serves as a buffer between foot and shoe and thus prevents pressure and friction.
The three-piece protector relieves pressure on tendons running in two cords.
Instep Protector with AirDuct Structure:
The three-dimensional chamber structure relieves pressure on the instep while at the same time ensuring effective air circulation in this area.
