Pools should be an enjoyable and harmless environment. Unfortunately, this can turn out differently. Annually, many accidents happen: over 230,000 in European swimming pools, over half of them involve kids! The wet floors around swimming pools are slippery and slipping and sliding is the rule rather than the exception. To prevent this, one can wear slippers, flip-flops or swim shoes but swimming cannot be done with slippers and swim shoes are not comfortable to wear most of them are far from fashionable. But alternatives do not exist. Until now!
Ockyz® has developed Sweakers®, non-slip swim socks. This innovative non-slip swim socks give the maximum feeling through the thin stretch fabric and open toes, providing optimal grip and balance. The light weight socks feel as a 'second skin', like you are walking bear feet. The Sweakers® non-slip swim socks have been positively tested by TUV Rheinland in Germany!
Our partnership with InnoSportLab Eindhoven (the training center of the Dutch Olympic swim team) tested Sweakers® on the effect on swimming technique, swim speed, movability and the overall interruption of swimming. The results show that the effect is non-existing, while current swim shoes cause extra weight, hindrance and other complications while swimming. The overall conclusion is that Sweakers®, non-slip swim socks, are perfect for swimming and can be worn during swim training, swim lessons and all other aquatic sports and leisure activities in contrast to traditional swim shoes.
The Sweakers® non-slip swim socks are cool, comfortable, hygienic, fashionable, antibacterial, fast drying, suitable for chlorine and sea water and above all Sweakers® provide grip through its non-slip sole and optimal balance due to the open toe design.
