Product Information

To help you perform at your best, you need equipment that completely fits and is comfortable for you.

To do your best, you need to feel your best. At Sockmine, our GripLock™ mid-length socks are perfect for those that like their socks to fit higher than their ankle.

Designed to prevent blisters, the mid-length socks are made using our very own innovative, patented and award winning Griplock™ technology.

This sock follows the exact contours of your feet, minimising any movement between the sock and the skin and removing friction from your feet, to help prevent you from getting blisters.

Understanding the discomfort and setbacks that blisters can bring to your training and to your performance, our GripLock™ mid-length socks are designed to prevent blisters from slowing you down.

Not only do they help prevent blisters, the socks are also elasticated to achieve the perfect fit and include extra padding in the heels and toes for ultimate comfort, control and total faith in your socks.

Our GripLock™ mid-length socks also use Coolmax® technology for extra breathability. This technology uses mesh fabric to wick moisture away from your skin, keeping your feet cool and dry no matter how hard you train.

Overall, our GripLock™ mid-length socks will:

  • Prevent blisters.
  • Completely fit and adhere to your skin, preventing movement and friction to reduce blisters.
  • Reduce rubbing and add extra comfort through padded heel and toes.
  • Leave your feet completely dry and cool with our Coolmax® breathable meshed fabric design.
  • Give you the ultimate fit and control.
  • Allow you to go further and faster for longer.

Made to be comfortable, our GripLock™ mid-length socks are designed to prevent blisters from interfering with your training. No matter what sport you use them for, our GripLock™ mid-length socks will make sure nothing slows you down, helping you set new personal bests by going further and faster for longer.

Tailored Sizing

Because one size never fits all.

Shoe Conversion Chart.

Sock sizing is made complicated by many misconceptions, and size ranges trying to accommodate too many people. Too big, and you get fabric bunching up, causing irritation; too small, and the sock will not sit or perform correctly on your foot.

Each of our sizes cover 4 UK shoe sizes only, from 2 up to 13½.

Sock Leg Lengths

trainer, midi, crew, knee high.

All socks are sized based upon the foot size, but there is another factor to think about when buying socks: where it comes to on your leg. We categorise these into four main areas.

  • Trainer – finishes at around where your trainer does, below the ankle.
  • Midi – finishes just above the ankle
  • Crew – finishes just underneath the calf
  • Knee High – finished just underneath the knee


Keeps feet cool and dry.

Developed in 1986, Coolmax® is a technical fibre engineered to keep the wearer dry. The fibre's unique cross section absorbs and pulls moisture away from the skin, transporting it down tiny grooves in its surface. Once the moisture spreads across a larger surface area, the rate of evaporation of that moisture increases. This effect helps keep your feet dry and cool. Coolmax® allows us to create socks that are soft and breathable; perfect for optimal sports performance in warmer weather.

Fibre Compositions

what makes up the sock

The fibre composition details percentage by weight of each fibre contained in the sock. Technical socks often have a proportion of synthetic fibres such as nylon and elastane, as these provide durability and stretch to the sock. For a technical wool sock, you should expect around a 50% wool content.

Comfort Linked Toe Seam

flat seam for no irritation.

Bulky seams have no place in a sock designed for performance. The comfort linked toe seam is flat, so causes no irritation to the tops of your toes.

Breathable Meshed Fabric

increases airflow

Hot and sweaty feet are something which everyone battles with, especially in active environments. Our breathable meshed fabric is constructed so that it increases airflow to and from the skin. This allows the warm air trapped beneath the sock to escape, being replaced by cooler air from outside the sock. To aid this breathability, we strongly advise wearing shoes that also have a breathable mesh.

Reinforced Heel and Toe

durability in the heel and toe

The heel and toe of the sock is reinforced with additional synthetic yarns, which increase the durability of the sock making it perform better for longer.
