Golf Australia Express : October 2014
the gear Y OU wouldn't think the barrier between your feet and your golf shoe could negatively affect your performance. But according to an expanding Canadian sock company, that's exactly what's happening with your game. Stable 26 — aptly named for the 26 bones in your feet — has released a golf version of its increasingly popular performance sock, garnering endorsement from none other than four-time major winner, Ernie Els. Originally developed by a chiropractic doctor to help skiers and ice hockey players perform better, the latest athletes targeted by the company are golfers. These golf socks come in two colours — white and black, and claim to give you better performance through a better fit. The secret to the performance is found with the use of silicone pads around the ankle, which provide support and an enhanced connection between your foot and your footwear. The silicone pads [right] are replaceable and the socks also come with a handy, washable mesh bag so nothing goes missing in the wash. The comfort of these toe warmers is unquestioned and they've just landed in Australia in time for the summer season here. At $29 a pair, these things aren't cheap, but we're told one round in a pair of Stable 26 socks and you'll understand why.
