Polymer Anti Blister Short Liner Socks

ArmaSkin liner socks prevent the conditions that contribute to blisters; friction on the skin, skin weakening moisture, destructive heat and shear forces between skin layers.

ArmaSkin Anti-Blister Liner Socks provide robust protection against foot blisters.

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 bubbles of skin filled with clear fluid that can appear anywhere on your foot. Blisters can be extremely painful — enough to cause you to stop your hiking or running activity.

Foot blisters can form when a number of conditions occur in your boot/shoe. These conditions are heat, moisture and movement that generates damaging skin shear and friction. Anyone wearing boots/shoes will experience all these to different degrees depending on the micro atmosphere within the footwear including temperature, moisture and of course their level of exertion.

ArmaSkin anti-blister second skin socks ( liner socks) address all these conditions that cause blisters:

  • The inner surface of the sock has a silicone (Si) polymer friction coating which gently adheres to the skin and PREVENTS any FRICTION that can occur naturally between socks and skin. Any friction generated in the boot/shoe is absorbed by the outer fabric.
  • The polymer coating is macro porous and hydrophobic (water hating) therefore SHIFTS 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.
  • The Si fusion polymer coating gently adheres to the skin and importantly shares skin shear forces across wider surface areas of skin thus reducing damage.

In addition the Silicon fusion polymer is bacteria static so the socks can be worn for prolonged periods of time. Wash them with your normal clothes but avoid using bleach, fabric softener or sending them to the dry cleaners. If you are concerned that your hike or run could be ruined by blisters then ArmaSkin anti-blister liner socks should be THE FIRST THING you put on your feet.
