Now, we’re always talking about football boots, but even if you find the perfect boot for you it can still kind of suck if you have a bad football sock. Myself, I have tried a s**t tonne football socks over the years good and bad. Really, really bad. So today, I’m giving you my top five best football socks that your money can buy. Now also keep in mind that if you get a low sock, and you want to use it in a match, which I understand. You can see how to do that by clicking the little ‘I’ in the corner of your screen. And with that said, let’s get to business. Number 5 is the first of the so called Grip Socks, which is supposed to help you eliminate slippage within your boots and improve your responsiveness and your comfort. It’s called G48 costing you 23 euros. And it’s basically a cushioned cotton sock with these here little sticky rubber dots on the outside and the inside of the sock which is supposed to help you keep your foot where it’s supposed to be inside of the boot at all times. And it is very comfortable, but it’s also a bit more chunky than the grip socks higher up the list. In 4th place we have the adidas Tango socks that set you back 12 euros. And okay, looks-wise it might be a bit better suited for the streets or underground football, you might get a bit of stick if you turn up to a regular training session rocking these. But with that said, for the money 12 euros you get a really nice soft padded sock that keeps it’s elasticity well and is very no-nonsense. And if you have the swagger for them, you should go and get them. Third! I’ve chosen the Nike Strike Mercurial socks at 22 euros. And basically, they’re some of the nicest non-grippy socks that your money can buy, simply because they have a very good, tight, elasticated fit with all these awesome dampen zones underneath the foot. And also you get these here different knit patterns throughout the entire sock that makes it feel a bit more premium and exclusive than other football socks out there. So if you don’t want to pay the very top dollar for the various grip socks that you can get, these are absolute no-brainers. In second place, Trusox will tear a 31 euro sized hole in your wallet. But they’re absolutely worth it! Made with these here little suede pieces both on the outside and on the inside of the socks. They will make sure that your feet don’t slip even a bit inside of your boots. And in terms of feeling securely locked down inside your boots, it doesn’t get better than a new pair of Trusox. There’s no discomfort, there are absolutely no blisters and the only downside apart from the price, is the fact that the pads lose a bit of gripiness the more you wear them and the more you wash them. For the honourable mentions I had to dig deep, but I ended up going with some of the various socks that adidas, Nike and Puma make for their club teams, and while you maybe don’t want to run around in a match wearing Newcastle socks or Barcelona socks. They’re actually pretty decent socks for the price, and ultimately I also ended up going with the Joma Classic socks because, while they may look a bit cheap and feel a bit synthetic, for the price of 10 euros, they’re actually all right! But if you want my honest opinion, stick with the socks on the list, because they’re much better. The best sock that you can buy for me, is the Nike Grip, which is basically built on the same concept as the G48’s and the Trusox with grippy elements both on the inside and on the outside of the sock itself, but unlike the other two, Nike actually engineered the grippy parts, the grey areas into the material itself. And sure, it might not give you as much grip inside of the boot as the Trusox will, but because it doesn’t tear down and wear down as much as the suede on the Trusox, you get a more consistent grip over time. And actually, I also feel that, as a sock, it’s a little bit more tight and elasticated and comfortable than the Trusox. It’s a close race, but this to me, Is the better one. Alright! So that was my top 5 best football socks on the market. But I also want to know what your top 5 list looks like and also potentially what you’re looking for when you buy new football socks? Does it even matter to you how good they actually are? Let me know in the comments section right down below.

  1. hi, i have a question regarding football boots and that is ,is nike mercurial victory 6 better than nike mercurial superfly 5

  2. Remember when after literally every video Unisport would give away what ever the No. 1 item was in the top 5's?

  3. I hope you do not delete this comment, but there are also really good socks that you cannot buy at Unisport Store.
    In countries, where German is the main language, Falke socks and Tapedesign are already a big thing. Specially the socks made by the Austrian brand Tapedesign are worn by many Bundesliga stars instead of Trusox.

  4. If i buy a leather boot like the rebula/legend 7 and i go half a size down after wearing it a few training's will give me a snugger fit (without creating discomfort) than true to size?

  5. Nothing tops just regular Dri-fit Nike crew socks. Perfect thickness and breathability. I wear size US 8.5 and go for the 6-8 model. Literally the best and most comfortable. Cut my gamesocks and just run the top end over the dri-fits

  6. Hello guys! I really want to buy the nike magista but since i play on ag it's very difficult to get my hand on a pair because they havent released the new packs in ag but just in fg. What is going on will they release a pack with ag studs in the future or what is going on am i supposed to play whit the fg studs on ag, i dont really get it?

  7. I'm a big fan of Injinji socks. Toesocks are a bit of a pain to put on, but they offer superior blister protection.

  8. This runs the lines of this episode, do you have any good recommendations for someone who has weak ankles to help support them from breaking their lock?

  9. Lol the NikeGrip socks are too thin imo. If you're looking for socks on the thicker (and more absorbent) side, do not get the NikeGrip. The Under Armour Undeniable crew socks are much cheaper, more durable, and better quality.

  10. I think that those socks are too expensive because if I have 4 football lessons in a week and can't wash them like 3 times in the row and buy 4 of them is too expensive so my question is if I use 2 pairs of socks in a game like one pair of the highers ones and one pair of short ones t I get the same feeling or something like that?

  11. Which are the socks pros use in training? They always wear these generic Nike or Adidas crew socks that look oh so soft, but I can never find them

  12. I can speak for jay mike! Bought my first pair of nikegrip socks and luckily In a sale! Best socks I've bought. They don't absorb the smell and stink after one session either! I worn them for a couple before washing them!

  13. here u go boys this is basically trusox except cheaper and in my opinion better.

  14. Nikegrip socks are also my favourites, but my toe goes always through the socks and breaks them and I have to buy new ones every month. So I need to spend a lot of money on socks 🙁 What could I do?

  15. i have a pair of x 15.1's and i really like the way they fit. does anyone know a boot that has the same kind of shape or fit?

  16. I've tried a lot of socks (not the Trusocks beacause of the price) and the Nike Grip is by far the best socks I've had. Tried them in an Magista Opus and Puma One and they are great.

  17. Great video man !! Getting new football socks asap lol in my last game my foot slipped inside my boots and my toes were hurting lol

  18. Does Eprosoke Training Program really help to increase your soccer technique? We have read many good things about this popular training course.

  19. Steven WaltersWhy are these socks so short? How are you supposed to wear them with Shin Guards?I coach under 10s and had a boy in tears this evening as the freezing cold meant he couldn't feel his toes – this might sound daft, but, this particular boy is usually a tuffy.
    So, I felt his boots and his toes were right at the edge (the boots were too tight & restricted his toe movement). Also though, his socks were freezing & damp (it hasn't been raining – just the ground frost & damp muddy ground). So, as a responsible coach I've covered white a few things regarding staying warm on the pitch, but also made me look into clothing as they all wear the cheapest socks they can find. Your thoughts appreciated!

  20. There is something I don't get. If quality socks are so important, why the socks from the clubs kits aren't the best. The nike grip should be on every single pair of nike socks, as simple as that. Cuting you sock to the ankle to wear two different socks because one is not "good enough" is just crazy to me…

  21. I have trusox and Nike grip socks and both seem marvelous and are very comfortable but the Nike feel a bit more cushioned while the trusox seem more grippier. Both are great but on dry surfaces I prefer the Nike ones

  22. Hi
    I want ask how about mostly socks used by football player nowadays like VR Perfoma socks. What’s the benefit from those socks?

  23. The nike grip socks! I got a pair back in highschool, (2-3years ago) . And to this day i still use the same pair & they work great! I love then
