EPT ™ is TOETOE’s unique design and manufacturing process which ensures all our socks maximise the benefits of toe separation, benefits not seen in conventional socks.
Separating the toes has been shown to improve proprioception – the body’s sense of spatial awareness, balance and posture. In conventional socks the toes tend to move as one unit, when separated by EPT ™ they move independently increasing sensory feedback and blood circulation which has many “knock-on” effects.
The improved blood circulation through the foot created by EPT ™ assists in maintaining the foot at the correct temperature, cool in the summer warm in the winter.
EPT ™ creates individual toe pockets which produce a micro-environment where the wicking action of the yarns used moves moisture away from the skin. This minimises the build-up of bacterial and fungal infections protecting against conditions such as Athlete’s Foot , and eliminating embarrassing foot odour.
EP T™ creates a weave pattern designed to support the structure of the foot and improve its biomechanical function. It also ensures the fabric moulds to the exact shape of the foot for a perfect fit. The individual toe pockets ensure the toes are always separated by fabric so there is no skin on skin friction, virtually eliminating the chance of blisters forming between the toes.
