Footprint Painkiller socks are embedded with Artilage (Artificial Cartilage Foam) in the shin and ankle bone areas to protect from shinners… Artilage is a unique type of memory foam that becomes firm when impacted therefore allowing the socks to be comfortable and form fitting like a normal sock while still being very protective.
Upper Shin: Cotton / Polyester Blend
Lower Foot: Bamboo / Charcoal
Impact Energy Absorption Nonotechnology
Looks Like Normal Sock yet Protects Ankle and Shin Area
Bamboo Viscose - An odor-resistant, breathable material from a highly renewable resource.

Ok so I have a love hate relationship with these socks. I have very large calves due to skating and biking for almost my entire life, but these socks are so hard to put on. After the literal 5 minutes it takes to put on, they seem to be pretty comfortable, but once you start skating, they get very sweaty under the FP inserts. However, they do kinda protect your shins. If you get hit in the front they work really well. However, they dont protect the sides of your shins at all which for me is the most common spot to get hit. Love the rest of FP products though insoles anf shoes are great.

Footprint Bamboo Crew Knee Hi Painkiller Shin/Ankle Guard Sock
They look if ur concerned with looks they look like an expensive pair of name brand skate socks. But say good bye to ankle and shark bites. U can take a hard wack in these and u don’t even no u did. Like I had two pairs for years and my shins actually I think started to heel and I thought man am I even hitting them. Cas very very rare is any wack hard enough to feel through these. And ther stil only 15$ and change. Bout to order these cas I never had the all gray. They say ther made also one of them cas they used to hv two different types and one said no wash period. The carbon and whatever else in them says or used to said basically self clean. And they may be right cas u wear without washing over and over and Thers no smell. They have bamboo in them to I think. Thers absolutely no reason to not hv these cas we get bent enough and these could save u a day of going home just from the blood alone. Especially the older u get. Other pro socks are just socks and more then these cost.
