Put on your favorite club's jersey, knee pads, wrist pads, and a pair of football shoes to play football in the shade. Why is your calf so sore? That's because you forgot to wear compression stockings for football. It is worth noting that in football, professional socks are even more important than jerseys. In regular matches, if you wear unqualified socks, you are not allowed to play.

In a football match, the average athlete runs 10,000 meters, while the average enthusiast runs 5,000 to 6,000 meters. Long-distance running and frequent return easily lead to slow venous blood flow of lower limbs, which makes people feel swelling and soreness of lower limbs. Compressed stockings can help lower limb veins, especially superficial vein valves, maintain good function, reduce tissue fatigue and prevent venous thrombosis.

When playing football, there are many collisions between the limbs. Every collision will cause muscle vibration, resulting in chronic injury and fatigue. The compression and tightening effect of soccer socks reduces the shaking of calf muscles in running and impact, prevents chronic muscle strain to a certain extent, and reduces the degree of muscle fatigue. This is the same as the principle of the Red Army's leg bandage.

Because of the thin soft tissue in the front and inside of the lower leg, the tibia is under the skin. Football players often collide head-on with the lower leg in the process of grabbing and dribbing the ball, which leads to tibial fracture in serious cases. So there are football rules that show that you have to wear a proper material made of leg protector, and all socks to wrap up.

When buying soccer socks, remember to look at the material. It is generally recommended to buy socks blended with cotton and chemical fibers. People with sweaty feet are better off with thicker feet. Thick sock bottom is also recommended, which helps to cushion the pressure; thin foot and ankle should be selected to achieve breathability, not tightness feet. Note that socks with extra thickness at the ankle should be worn if the kicker's ankle joint is injured, which can play a role of fixation and protection.
