Gareth Bale has been almost unstoppable in 2013. The 23-year-old is currently tied for third on the Barclays Premier League Golden Boot table with 15 goals. He has scored 8 goals in the last 6 matches. And he has a secret weapon in his arsenal.
The Tottenham winger is well known for wearing his adidas adiZero soccer cleats but has been spotted over the last 6+ months wearing Trusox.
The distinctive non-slip black patches jump out at you once you much like Bale’s impressive scoring record. The non-slip patches help anchor a player’s foot inside the soccer cleat to minimize slippage when making cuts and taking shots to allow the full transfer of power to the cut or ball.
Bale has to work to get his Trusox on the soccer field. He cuts his Tottenham game socks at the ankle and then tapes the seam to give the appearance of one sock.
The black dots may become an epidemic in the league. Chelsea’s Demba Ba and Victor Moses both use the Trusox. Ba must have left a pair with Newcastle as most players at the St James Park club are being spotted in the socks as well as players from Liverpool, QPR are beyond.
Why aren’t you wearing Trusox?
