Feet have high demands
Think about the demands of your feet, which have to carry and balance the entire body weight. In addition, they are often surrounded by footwear, which is an additional burden. Socks as a link between foot and shoe have to meet all the requirements:
- free movement
- fit seat without constriction
- allow the skin to breathe
- deviate moisture
- avoid friction and bubbles
- buffer for foot and shoes
The requirements in detail
Freedom of movement is important because the entire movement apparatus can be affected by an impairment. This is especially true for your baby and smaller children. If the seat is fitted correctly, the stockings do not slip, but the foot and calf will not slip, which would inhibit blood flow. The skin as the largest organ of man must be able to breathe – also on the feet. Breathable textiles fulfill the purpose. Moisture through sweat is not only unpleasant, but also muffles and can lead to skin irritation. Therefore, hygienic and health-conscious women and men wear breathable and at the same time moisture-absorbing socks. You should pay attention to this with your baby. In addition, this affects friction and bubbles – provided they are skin-friendly textiles such as cotton in high-quality processing, especially at the main stress points of the foot.
To ensure that no friction is caused by the shoes, socks and sneakers are not allowed to penetrate and must be able to absorb any possible pressure points on the shoe. When walking and exercising, the feet are subjected to the greatest stress: If the socks meet all requirements, the feet do not tire so quickly. This contributes to an increase in performance.
Sophisticated technologies with high functionality
As a developer of high-quality breathable socks, Rohner is aware of the demands on the footwear and uses innovative technologies during production, which are continually adapted to the latest scientific findings. The choice of the material is important at first – cotton, for example, is skin-friendly, respiratory-active and moisture-dissipating at the same time, and is therefore very popular with women and men in everyday life as well as in sports and also suitable for active children. The moisture-dissipating effect is further optimized by the Rohner Air Channel System (R.A.C.S.): High-tech yarns direct moisture into a buffer. This is made of cotton or wool plush and saves it so that the foot remains dry. This also preserves respiratory properties and minimizes friction through the shoes.
Rohner socks and sneakers are also characterized by a patented rib construction, which ensures the accuracy and freedom of movement: nothing slips, the foot is not narrowed.
To ensure that the stockings always stay together and each item always comes to the right foot, Rohner has also developed a technology to optimize the pairs anatomically for the symmetrical foot shapes. There is, of course, an indication for the right and the left specimen, so that the pairs can be reunited immediately after washing.
Last but not least, the Swiss developer places high-quality footwear on environmental friendliness and ecology. This applies to the choice of materials as well as the production processes and packaging.
