The Kentucky Horsewear Achilles Gel Socks are lightweight and comfortable riding socks, designed to meet the demands from skin-sensitive riders. Besides the soft foot sole, there is an additional comfort and protection to the Achilles area with a strong shock absorbing gel. The socks reduce pain caused by pressure of the spurs onto the zipper. They provide relief from pump bumps or sore, fatigued or injured Achilles tendon. The gel slowly releases medical grade mineral oil which softens and moisturizes the skin. The socks fit both feet. They are machine washable at 30°, no dryer. Sprinkle the gel with Talcum powder if it becomes tacky.
Caution: do not place the sock on an open wound.
