Ivan Rakitic Wears TapeDesign Allround Socks

A closer look at Rakitic's socks reveals that he is wearing the anti-slip socks of Austrian company TapeDesign, called the TapeDesign Allround socks.

Similar to Trusox, the TapeDesign sports socks are made for better grip and less slipping. The socks feature specially placed rubber knobs on the outside in ergonomic foot shape for a perfect fit in the shoe. Unlike Trusox, they do not come with rubber knobs on the inside - Trusox has patented this technology.

Ivan Rakitic is not the only player who is wearing TapeDesign socks. The socks are used by footballers such as David Alaba, Marco Arnautovic as well as various other players, mainly from Austria and Germany.
