Statistically speaking, most of you who stop by to check out our shock absorbing socks aren’t here to purchase them for professional athletes. After all, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are only about 13,700 pro athletes in the United States, and with 318,000,000 people in the country you probably don’t have a pro on your list.

That means most of the pain relieving socks we sell this season will be helping regular people, people who want to reduce the impact their feet absorb so that they can walk, run, and play sports in better comfort. These are the people who deserve the best in shock absorbing socks…your loved ones! Who can benefit the most?


Parents are always looking for ways to increase safety in teenage sports. While they might spend $200 for a pair of shoes, the feet otherwise go neglected. That’s where shock absorbing socks come in.

Teens are going through a great deal of growth, and exercise is incredibly important. We all know that resistance training, such as lifting weights, can help them build bone density. But the high impact associated with sports can lead to heel fractures, ankle injuries, shin splints, and other injuries that a growing body could do without. Shock absorbing socks help to reduce the amount of impact the body is absorbed by as much as 94.7 percent. The holidays are a perfect time to get them socks that they’ll actually be happy with!

The Weekend Player

The weekends are a great time to get out and enjoy some recreational sports, but for some people it’s the only exercise they get all week. Because certain muscles and bones haven’t been built up to deal with these sudden bursts of activity, foot injuries occur quite often. Shock absorbing socks can go a long way to help weekend players in the most common weekend sports such as tennis, flag football, casual basketball, soccer. If you’re getting a gift for a weekend player, protect their foot health with our shock absorbent socks.

The Trainer

We’ve mentioned it before, but it bears repeating: working out can be murder on your feet. Heels are often subjected to a great deal of damaging impact that can leave someone injured or in a great deal of pain. Certain parts of the body are always going to be sore after a workout, but the heels don’t have to be one of them! Grab a gift of pain relieving socks for that special trainer in your life.

The Sufferer

Some people have no interest in sports but still suffer from foot pain. Perhaps they’re a nurse who is on their feet for most of the day, they work retail, or simply have to walk everywhere in a big city. Perhaps they suffer from congenital problems and have failed with conventional heel orthotics. In our experience, shock absorbing socks have helped with many common foot problems including plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, and growth plate deformities. It really doesn’t matter why they’re in pain; they simply need pain relieving socks. You can help this holiday!

Whoever you’re buying these sock for — teen, pro, weekenders — they’re going to be appreciated by anyone who opens up their present and discovers the wonders of shock absorbent socks. Find the perfect pair for the people on your list right here.
