Learn about Metasports, and how the founding MetaLab team developed MetaSox performance football socks for athletes of all abilities in football and a variety of high impact sports.
Engineered from injury
With a severe metatarsal injury, Trusox and MetaSports founder Chris Niesiolowski searched the market for products to help him get back into a competitive sport.
After realising there wasn’t anything out on the market to fill this need, he set about creating something himself with his father, Henry.
They developed the MetaSox technology over five years, utilising their expertise from developing other brands like TruSox.
In 2011, Chris and Henry developed the first-ever hybrid sports sock for players that need essential protection, which works in synergy with modern sports footwear such as lightweight football boots.
MetaSox’s unique construction
MetaSox football socks are designed to cover the entire metatarsal region, only 3mm deep, making them flexible enough for your feet. An elastic silicon impact pad withstands up to 40 Newton’s force (enough protection!). Additionally, MetaSox will give you added stability when wearing boots or sports shoes.
