UYN® RUNNER’S FIVE
THE RUNNING SOCK WITH FIVE TOES
A sock featuring all the technologies that have made UYN socks world famous, but with an extra special feature? Meet RUNNER’S FIVE, the first UYN running sock with HIGH-5 technology. The latest evolution in the world of running. Five toes, which means comfort and performance multiplied by five.
SECOND SKIN EFFECT
The sock fits the foot perfectly. No creases or fabric build-up
Like a glove. The RUNNER’S FIVE sock fits the foot and stays in the right position, without shifting or slipping. This helps increase in-shoe comfort so you can stay focused on your run without distraction.
PREVENTS FRICTION THAT CAN LEAD TO BLISTERS
Toes do not rub against each other
The toes are one of the most critical areas of the runner‘s foot, especially when covering long distances. Thanks to HIGH-5 technology, the fabric between the toes buffers friction, helping to reduce those skin irritations that can cause blisters.
MORE NATURAL POSTURE
Toes fill up the toe box of the shoes better
Our feet are extraordinary natural shock absorbers. Thanks to over 100 different muscles, they absorb impact forces very efficiently and propel the body forward when running. The problem is that the very sedentary lifestyle of today‘s modern world has atrophied these natural functions.
RUNNER’S FIVE socks are the first step towards reactivating the foot’s performance. HIGH-5 technology allows the toes to maintain a natural position, be correctly aligned and spaced. This has beneficial effects on posture and weight distribution.
EXTRA TRACTION DURING PUSH-OFF AND LANDING
Toes are free to move independently, providing more stability
The proper spacing and independent movement of the toes also have a positive effect on running biomechanics. The foot has greater stability and traction in the two crucial ground contact phases: landing and push-off.
Micro-holes allow air to circulate. Less sweat between the toes, where bacteria nest
RUNNER’S FIVE are the only running socks with micro-holes in each toe. The holes are connected to the internal Cool Air Flow channel system. The result is a constant circulation of air around the foot, from the toes to the leg. This advanced system helps to keep the skin cool and dry even at high temperatures.
PACKED WITH TECHNOLOGY
1.The sock is made without cuff, that is without the upper elastic band that tightens the leg, leaves marks on the skin and restricts blood circulation.
NO ELASTIC AT THE TOP
NO SLIPPING DOWN

MADE WITH NATEX
The obsessive research for top-quality biomaterials led us to NATEX. Derived from castor beans, NATEX fibre reduces garment weight by 25%, dries 50% faster than conventional nylon, is more elastic and has a bacteriostatic effect that minimises odour.
