Tamarack Launches GlideWear Forefoot Shear Protection Socks

GlideWear® Forefoot Shear Protection Socks feature a patented, dual layer low friction zone that provides targeted shear reduction across the forefoot to prevent and relieve abrasion, friction, and shear-related skin breakdown. Unlike traditional dual layer socks, which can cause a loss of stability while walking with and without footwear, GlideWear is strategically positioned around the forefoot to maximize stability and comfort for the user.

In developing the GlideWear® Forefoot Sock, Tamarack partnered with Knit-Rite, Inc. (Kansas City, KS USA) to incorporate their SmartKnit® Seamless Sock Technology into the GlideWear design; resulting in a product that offers maximum comfort and performance for people at-risk for developing skin breakdown on their feet.

GlideWear Forefoot Shear Protection Socks provide immediate relief and lasting protection against:

  • Metatarsal plantar surface ulcers
  • Hallux callusing and blisters
  • Toe blisters

Available in full forefoot and partial foot (transmetatarsal amputee) models; both crew length and featuring white SmartKnit Socks.
