So I’m not really a believer in some of the fancy gadgets and technology they put on soccer kit these days. Give a me a cotton shirt for a jersey and I’m happy, but these Adidas Formotion socks are actually worth the extra money. I’m a tall guy, about 6’7”, so stability is one of the most important asset I look for in any athletic gear.
These socks are build fro stability, and while I never thought it would be a big factor, having worn them for a match, they really are worth it. The socks are tighter around the heel and arch of my foot so they don’t slip when I run or cut, helping my foot stay stable in my boots. The socks also have some cool Climacool technology and wick moisture away pretty well, but for me its all about the stability they help give my foot. Now if you’re wearing unstable cleats, these won’t correct that for you, but they will keep you comfortable and stable in a decent pair of boots.
Overall, at $15.99, I think they are well worth it.
