The Challenge

Action and reaction redefined: the skin continuously sends impulses to the brain. The information architecture of the nervous system operates with incredible speed to process tactile stimuli. Although these do not actually register in the consciousness, the brain uses this steady stream of information to constantly react and influence the performance and well-being of the whole body.*

The Solution

However, this controlled stimulation can achieve even more. It is also preventative: You think there's nothing wrong and then suddenly they're back, those irritating sensation problems. Tingling, numbness, burning or pain can significantly impair your concentration over the long term. Increasing the blood circulation rate underneath the sole of the foot also helps to stop the feet from "going to sleep". But make sure that you never tie your shoelaces too tightly, because only a foot with freedom to move within the shoe is capable of streaming this important feedback to your brain to allow it to prepare the foot for top performance. X-BIONIC® socks with compression and Effektor Technology warm your muscles and tendons. They help you to take every step with greater precision. This significantly reduces your risk of injury by twisting your ankle.
