The Taping Effect Supports the Arches and Mitigates Damage
There are three arches on the human sole, and physical balance is maintained by connecting the three points of the roots of the big toe, the roots of the little toe, and the heels. Arches also play the role of a suspension (shock absorber) that cushions the impact on the body when landing. However, this function of suspension will decrease due to accumulated fatigue and stiffened muscles. Then, feet cannot absorb all the landing impact, which may place a heavy burden on the knees and lower back. All C3fit socks are equipped with a taping effect that supports the arches of the sole.

Socks that Support the Three Arches with a Taping Effect
Mitigate the Burden on Feet with Patented* Arch Support Structure
Cross taping on the sole supports the arch of the foot and mitigates the decrease in functioning of the “longitudinal” arch. A special yarn is used in the crossing part, and the taping function has been enhanced as the yarns stick together and harden when arranging the shape by applying heat. In other words, by tightening only the taping part to enhance support and soften other parts, instead of hardening the entire fabric by using a knit structure, foot comfort has been secured. The longitudinal arch is very important in absorbing impact and maintaining propulsion force by the spring role.

These socks also firmly support the “transverse” arch by covering the tips of the metatarsal bones located at the root of the foot. Generally, deformation of the transverse arch causes spread foot (a condition where toes spread transversely), which is said to cause a feeling of foot and/or knee fatigue, as well as bunions. Taping is applied in a way that wraps up from top to bottom while also simultaneously supporting the transverse arch and longitudinal arch, the specification of which was uniquely developed by Goldwin, and has been patented.
Ingenuity to Mitigate Shoe Pain
By further raising the Achilles tendon part, discomfort while running caused by touching and being rubbed by the opening of a shoe is eased. Stitches were removed in the three-line part on the front side of the ankle, so that gathering of fabric when flexing the toes will be minimized.
High Cushioning Characteristic and Toe Reinforcement
Cushioning characteristic is improved by using pile fabric in the heel and toe. However, if it is too thick, it will make it harder to convey foot sensation; therefore, pile fabric in the toe is used only on the sole (the nail part is thin) and overall thickness is suppressed. Strong nylon yarn (reinforcing yarn) is used at the tip of the toe, so that it is not easily torn. These are our signature socks with finely changed yarns and materials. While these are small items, they are packed with our brand’s commitment to using environmentally friendly materials such as PET recycled polyester.
Paper Fiber Socks
Durable and superiorly breathable
lasting dryness - eco friendly natural material
Its unique texture do not stick to the skin, maintaining your feet dry and comfortable even after long hours of use.
77 people out of 80 felt that it kept dry even on a rainy day use in survey.
Has 5x more tolerance against rubbing compared to regular sports socks.
Longitudinal arch support
Goldwin’s arch support socks have a unique cross-taping structure that supports the plantar arch by specialized yarn and knit structure.
Lateral arch supports metatarsal bones, which prevents the arch from falling. Arches of the foot absorb impact like a cushion during exercise.
