With added cushioning in the parts of the foot that are most prone to impact and injury, the Nike Elite Socks provide targeted support and sweat-wicking ability for even the most intense play. Nike's Dri-FITŪ microfiber, polyester fabric moves moisture away from the skin and transfers it to the sock's surface, where it evaporates, helping to keep your feet dry and comfortable all game long.
Cushioning around the ankle and heel helps protect the foot from friction. Thick padding on the pressure points of the foot delivers shock absorption and comfort. Thick ribbing from the top of the sock down to the ankle gives a secure fit. Spandex in the fabric adds stretchy compression, while a left- and right-specific design brings ultimate comfort. The Elite Socks includes all the features of the original sock, but adds two layers of cushioning material to help reduce friction and soften the impact where and when it matters the most.
