Feet
To be fit, to live a healthy life and function efficiently throughout the day, we need a healthy and strong heart. For our heart to work well, it is necessary to have a balanced diet, an adequate amount of sleep and exercise. Exercise works well if you have the right tools such as the right socks. Through years of research and tradition, Vitalsox has worked toward accomplishing this goal by adhering to the Feetness concept.Socks, a simple but a technologically innovative item help your feet work better, stay fit, allowing your heart and the rest of your body to benefit, creating a general well-being. Firstly but mostly, to have the right sock, the appropriate fibers, the best technical wicking materials are needed. Vitalsoxs anti-bacteric Silver DryStat protect you from external agents, keep your feet dry from bacterial growth contributing to your overall feetness. Blisters can be avoided, circulation improved, swelling reduced and performance enhanced with a sock that fits the anatomy of your feet perfectly to avoid creation of uncomfortable creases. Vitalsox has a simple objective, staying focused on the benefits of the right features that wrap and contour your feet like a second skin. AB-X padding has an exclusive absorber cushioning system providing long-lasting maximum impact absorption. The plantar arch flexion is responsible for pushing back blood from the feet extreme veins toward your heart. Vitalsoxs patented graduated compression socks, ideal for recovery, help vein valves to continue pushing the blood up especially after a work-out when the plantar arch is at rest. Vitalsox helps you achieve a fundamental objective, starting from feetness to bring you to wellness.

silver
The use of silver as an anti-bacterial and healing agent goes back to ancient Greece. Long before modern pharmaceuticals, it was even used as an antibiotic and germicide. Understanding that polypropylene is recognized as a very good wicking fiber, Arcos Spa developed a patented fiber, adding silver ions in the manufacturing process, creating Silver DryStat. Because silver ions are built right into the core of the fiber, they inhibit the growth of bacteria and moulds reducing unpleasant smells and keeping biological skin balance during athletic activities. As we know, body temperature is crucial for comfort during physical activity, therefore, Silver DryStat becomes fundamental due to its extraordinary insulating powers. The water absorption index in Silver DryStat is almost nil, it has a low conductivity and moisture is kept away from the skin. So, if you are climbing the Himalayas, running a marathon or walking in the park wearing Silver DryStat socks, then you are assured a perfect equilibrium between temperature and relative humidity even in the most extreme weather conditions. Manufactured by Arcos, an Italian-based company, Silver DryStat can withstand harsh weather conditions, sun, sweat and humitidy. In addition, it is 100 per cent recyclable and does not pollute the enviroment.

Compression is not a new technology; it has been used for years in medical patients with venous and arterial insufficiency. However, the application of this technology to athletics is relatively new. There is clear evidence to support compression use in promoting recovery. Using compression socks after a race or hard workout provide a substantial benefit. These garments will help to avoid venous stasis (blood pooling in the legs) and swelling. Compression is particularly helpful in depended areas of the body, such as the feet and lower legs where gravity has a greater effect on blood return. Improved blood flow after a workout results in enhanced nutrient delivery and removal of waste products to and from muscles. This creates a situation optimal for muscle repair, reduced stiffness and heaviness in the legs and possibly less soreness. Several studies have demonstrated that post exercise blood lactate levels were lower with compression sock use both during and after exercise. Other studies have demonstrated that compression socks do create a major fluid shift in the body. Compression garments are believed to improve venous blood return to the heart and allow for better cardiac output (flow of oxygenated blood from the heart) thereby aiding oxygen delivery to working muscles and increased endurance.

Feetness for everyone


Quality performance during our daily life depends primarily on how good you feel mentally and physically and how efficiently you can function and carry through the objectives you set for yourself. As everyone knows a healthy diet, an adequate amount of sleep, being well prepared and competent, assures good results in any field. However, very often, small but important details for your physical well being are ignored and this can jeopardize even the best of intentions. In effect, in order to really function throughout the day, one part of the body surely used but often neglected are our feet. Athletes, doctors, nurses, pilots, to mention a few professions, definitely know the importance of wearing good shoes to perform their daily tasks. However, it is also important to go a step further and pay attention to the quality of socks used. Even the best shoes are not complete without socks and do not do the job properly, no matter how fashionable, expensive or technological they might be. The two, socks and shoes, work hand in hand .
