多久需要淘汰襪子?

  因為經營CHEGO的關係,顧客或朋友偶爾會問闆娘:「大概多久需要淘汰襪子呢?」 其實襪子屬於消耗品,因為經常與鞋子或地板摩擦, 加上其他因素,例如:步行和運動時施力不均、洗滌方式等,都會造成破洞、襪口鬆弛等問題。 還有襪子的材質、品質、穿戴者的體質與衛生習慣,也會造成襪子是否容易飄出異味。 基於以上理由,闆娘真的很難告訴大家清楚的期限。   CHEGO嚴選 如果以CHEGO品質來說,根據老顧客的穿戴心得, 穿2年都還沒鬆沒破,抗菌除臭效果依舊非常給力!(想換襪子都沒藉口😆) 但基於衛生問題,闆娘建議:1年至少換1批襪子。   CHEGO在做品牌宣傳時很少將「耐穿」、「除臭」拿來說嘴, 因為這是CHEGO在研發及品管階段的最最最基本要求。 所以很多馬拉松跑者、運動員一再的回購,甚至天天穿, 或是買我們家的襪襪送給其他的跑者朋友, 也是因為除了「舒適度」以外,「耐穿度」、「除臭度」都非常驚人!     舒適&耐穿度 在研發階段和專業開發人員的溝通很重要, 必須非常有耐心一再的開會、協商,甚至特地製作新的、更符合人體工學的立體襪版, 才能誕生跑者零負評的「赤足感機能襪」!   除臭度 我們所選用的原料,只要是抗菌或除臭級別要求,都是醫療級! 染料也都以歐盟+美國的規格檢驗是否致癌。除了不用擔心抗菌除臭的效果以外, 更不用擔心穿在腳上會不會對人體造成傷害。   有點離題了,只是想告訴大家, 如果你想找一雙舒適、保護度&機能都給力、 耐穿、透氣、抗菌除臭規格都是醫療級的襪子,來穿CHEGO就對了! — 你可能有興趣: // CHEGO品牌緣起 // — 逛逛CHEGO 男款:https://www.chego-official.com/categories/men 女款:https://www.chego-official.com/categories/women

挑對運動襪,輕鬆跟水泡說再見

  你有跑步跑到起水泡的經驗嗎? 相信很常從事高強度運動的人或跑者,或多或少都會有腳掌起水泡的經驗。 在還沒創立CHEGO運動襪之前闆娘最常做的運動是跑步, 當時身為跑步菜鳥的我因為跑姿不對、裝備不對, 除了足弓不舒服等問題之外,就是腳掌會起水泡!   為什麼會起水泡? 在運動過程中「摩擦力升高」是起水泡的主因,在高度摩擦之下, 「高溫」、「潮濕」都是導致腳掌、腳趾起水泡的元兇。 不可諱言,挑一雙舒適又合腳的鞋子很重要;但別忘了,襪子才是緊貼著雙足的第二層肌膚! 因此,挑雙好襪跟挑雙好鞋一樣重要,加上襪子的單價比鞋子低很多, 如果一雙好襪能大幅度增加對雙足的保護度,CP值真的很高呀!     穿CHEGO運動襪不起水泡的2大秘密: 1- 舒適的緩震氣墊 因為闆娘的切身之痛,加上開發襪款前特地訪問了多位運動員、跑者, 我們在設計運動襪款時將容易起水泡、或是因摩擦而受傷的的部位貼心設計了「緩震氣墊」, 其他像是足弓、腳背等地方則是維持一般的厚薄度,使雙腳不感覺笨重,又能有足夠的保護度。 2- 會呼吸的透氣設計 除了緩震氣墊保護以外,別忘了「透氣度」也是避免水泡的重點! CHEGO的運動襪系列,腳背都有獨家設計的「蜂窩狀透氣孔」, 緊密的透氣孔可讓汗水熱氣可加速排散,不易在鞋襪之間久留,自然而然也就不易起水泡囉! 因為以上的獨特設計,保護度夠、透氣排汗佳的CHEGO運動襪, 才會在跑者和運動員之間有著優質好評!   如果現在腳上有水泡該怎麼辦? 最重要的就是先暫停一切運動,千萬不要自己戳破它! 大部分的水泡過幾天就會自己痊癒,在這期間可以用OK繃或專用的貼布保護它, 如果真的很不舒服一定要去給醫生處理才是最安全的。 或是你也可以打開CHEGO官網,挑雙喜歡的襪子來預防水泡!

CHEGO品牌緣起

  惱人的敏感肌 我是Jamie,是CHEGO運動襪的創辦人,在創立品牌之前是織品設計師。 我從小就非常容易過敏,尤其是皮膚。如果穿到不易排汗、材質不好、泡除臭藥水的襪子,我的腳就會開始癢且紅腫,即便只是襪口稍緊,也會感到不適。 但熱愛跑步與重量訓練的我,運動時如果沒有襪子保護雙腳,肯定會起水泡、黑指甲,或導致扭傷等運動傷害。矛盾的是,像這樣材質不好的襪子,穿的時候就如此不舒適,更別提它能保護雙腳,或是提升運動表現。 每次著裝運動時我都會想: 「為什麼我非得穿讓我過敏的襪子呢?」 「有沒有適合敏感肌人的襪子呢?」 「應該有人和我有一樣的困擾吧?」 這些念頭一直在我腦海中揮之不去。   CHEGO運動襪創立契機 直到我進入日本公司擔任織品設計師之後,我對襪子的既定印象完全改觀!原來只要選定適合的材質、注意每一道前置作業與織法,小小的襪子也可以讓你一整天都感到很舒適。 對於易敏膚質的我,無法忘懷第一次穿上日本製襪品的舒適與震撼,更想把這份舒適帶給跟我一樣是敏感肌體質的人,於是辭掉工作後,在2016年創立了CHEGO。   一個人走得快,一群人走得遠 決心創立CHEGO之後,試穿了無數知名品牌的運動襪,每次跑步、重量訓練時記下各家運動襪的優缺點,當作設計CHEGO運動襪的參考。 非常感謝當時身邊熱愛運動的朋友們,不厭其煩反覆幫我測試樣品,因為我相信,電腦測試的舒適度與耐用度可以當參考,但絕對比不上讓運動員親身體驗。 更感謝襪廠花上許多時間與心力,肯相信與配合我在日本學到的織法和製程,甚至品質管理也比照日本的謹慎程度,我藍圖中的CHEGO運動襪才能順利起步。   【後記】 在因緣際會下,2019下半年開始,CHEGO從臺灣跨足到美國囉!有機會的話會整理美國發展後的故事給大家:) — 你可能有興趣: CHEGO運動襪除了分左右腳,連形狀都依照腳型打造! 手把手教你挑選運動襪-足弓篇 手把手教你挑選運動襪-材質篇 — 逛逛CHEGO 男款:https://www.chego-official.com/categories/men 女款:https://www.chego-official.com/categories/women

Are Compression Socks Good for Sports?

  Sometimes runners or athletes have similar questions, such as: “Are compression socks good for sports?” or “Does the arch compression work?” At first, I didn’t understand how the importance of arch compression until I searched for a lot of information. In this post, I organize this information, welcome to share it with your friends who have the same questions!    The Effects of Fatigue on Plantar Muscles I believe when you are running or doing intense exercises for a long period, like running a marathon or playing basketball, you would feel the plantar become more and more fatigued. Because the plantar muscles are like an elastic cushion, when we are jumping or moving quickly, our plantar will bear most of the bodyweight shock. If the plantar muscles overwork, your arches will lose elasticity and cause fallen-arches, plantar fasciitis, or the other injures.     Alleviating Plantar Fatigue To avoid fallen-arches when you are doing a long period of exercise, arch compression sports socks are very important. Because arch compression sports socks can support your arches to keep the elasticity, alleviate plantar fatigue, and provide all-around protection to avoid injures. It also can effectively shorten the recovery period after exercise.   Promoting Blood Circulation   The arch compression sports socks not only alleviate plantar fatigue but also promote blood circulation. When you are doing intense exercise, arch compression sports socks will support blood from the feet to flow back to your heart more easily. It is very helping to alleviate plantar fatigue and improve your athletic performance.      The Tighter the Arch Compression, the Better? Maybe some people think if arch compression is the tighter the better? The compression of the feet depends on how much compression strength each person can withstand and personal physique. Moreover, if the compression is too strong, it will squeeze feet too much, resulting in poor blood circulation. It is not good for your health.   About CHEGO Sports Socks After interviewed nearly 100 athletes and cooperated with professional developers, CHEGO provides the sports socks with: Appropriate Compression 3D Modeling Socks Shape to Fit Feet Perfectly, Cozy Cushion Breathable Mesh Design   Protecting your feet all-around, and effectively improving your athletic performance.  Just try it!    — Shop CHEGO Men's: https://www.chego-official.com/categories/men Women's: https://www.chego-official.com/categories/women — You may be interested: // Why Should I Wear Athletic Socks that Designed Left and Right? // // What is the Best Way to Fight Viruses? //

How to Choose the Best Running Socks? – About Foot Arch

  If you want to enhance your running skills, in addition to choosing the running shoes and insoles fit for you, a pair of suitable sports socks are also the key point. Let me tell you how to check your foot arch type and choose the best running socks which fit your feet!   Check Your Foot Arch Type It’s important to know your foot arch type. Because different foot arch types require different functional sports socks. The first step is finding out whether you have “normal arches”, “flat feet”, or “high arches”. Just follow these easy step to take a foot arch test: 1- Step into the water with one foot, and make sure all parts of your foot bottom get wet. 2- Remove your foot from water, and step onto a piece of flattened color paper/cardboard that will show your footprint. 3- Remove your foot from the paper/cardboard and take a photo. 4- Repeat the process with your other foot. Take your footprint and we will introduce you to how “high arches” or “flat feet” people choose their own sports socks.   (image: walkrite)   High Arches If you just see your heel, the ball of your foot, and your toes in your footprint, you have high arches. Having high arches means that less of your foot touches the ground when walking or running. It provides less shock absorption and may cause arch inflexibility, ankle pain, or a tight Achilles tendon. (image: Dr.Foot) If you have high arches, the socks with cushion are extra important! The cushion can support your feet to absorb impact properly. I recommend “CUSHION Ankle Socks” for you. CUSHION Ankle Socks is designed with a full-foot cushion to minimize your feet friction and discomfort. It is also designed with honeycomb-shaped mesh. The honeycomb-shaped mesh was implemented on insteps to keep our feet cool and dry. For people who need to wear socks for a long period, the design would greatly lower the bacteria growth rate and eliminate the foot odor. Read More CUSHION Ankle Socks: Men's: https://chegous.com/cushionmen Women's: https://chegous.com/cushionwomen     Flat Feet If the footprint is almost a complete foot, you most likely have flat feet. It means you have less arch support than normal arches. It is not only painful when you walking or running, but it may lead to other more serious problems. Such as you may feel pain or fatigue along the inner side of your feet and arches, or feel lower back stiff easily.   (image: Urgently Ortho) According to your needing, I recommend “BAREFOOT Running Ankle Socks”. The socks designed with very effective arch support functions. The arch support design assists in relieving the pain of your feet, and also provides good circulation of blood flow on your feet. A healthy blood circulation would keep your feet agile and being able to exercise effortlessly. On the other hand, for keeping your feet dry and breathable, BAREFOOT Running Ankle Socks is also designed with honeycomb-shaped mesh.

  There are more and more people who have gotten COVID-19 and the virus has spread to many countries. Many people feel anxious about the pandemic. Actually, we don’t have to be over panic, because a good immune system can kill most viruses and germs.   What is the “Immune System”? The immune system is like a defense system in our body. It can identify then kill viruses and germs. If your immune system is too weak, you will get cold, tonsillitis, or partial inflammation easily. On the contrary, if your immune system is too strong to let your body have overreaction, it will make the system imbalance.   How to Strengthen Your Immune System?

How Often Do I Need to Replace My Socks?

  The Factors of Replacing Your Socks My friends and customers sometimes ask me ”How often do I need to replace my socks?” In my opinion, socks are consumables because socks often rub against shoes or floor. For example, the uneven force during walking or exercise and washing methods will cause socks with broken holes or sagging. Other reasons such as the material and quality of socks, wearer’s physique, and wearing habits might also cause the socks to be prone to odor. With the above possible factors, it is really difficult to tell you a clear deadline for when you should change a pair of new socks.   Our Promise According to our customer wearing experience, the average service life for CHEGO socks is 2 YEARS, without any broken holes or sagging, and the antibacterial and deodorant effect are still very good. But based on hygiene issues, I recommend replacing socks at least once a year. When we promote CHEGO, we rarely use “Wear-Resistance” and “Deodorizing” as characteristics, because these are the most basic requirements of CHEGO in the R&D and quality control stage. Therefore, many marathon runners and athletes have purchased again with much more quantity or recommending CHEGO Sports Socks to other runners. In addition to COMFORT, WEAR-RESISTANCE and DEODORIZATION are the features that we want to emphasize!     About Wear-Resistance During the R&D stage, communication with professional developers is very important. For each design change, we discussed and brainstormed with the developers again and again, in order to make the socks more fit to the feet shape. We eventually came up with an ergonomic three-dimensional version, which later becomes the design basis of our BAREFOOT Running Ankle Socks.   About Deodorizing The antibacterial and deodorizing fibers we have chosen are all in medical grade! Don't worry about the skin sensitization or irritation when you wear CHEGO socks.   If you are looking for a pair of sports socks which are comfortable, highly protective and breathable, JUST WEAR CHEGO!   — Shop CHEGO 👉🏼Men’s 👉🏼Women’s

How to Get Rid of Blisters on Your Feet?

  Do You Have the Same Experience? Anyone who often exercises knows the blisters on your feet are very uncomfortable and annoying. When you are running, biking, or hiking, these blisters make you feel pain and have to stop exercising. It’s very important to know blisters and how to prevent them.   Why We Have Blisters? When you are exercising, excessive friction between feet and socks can easily cause blisters. Because of the greater friction, the wet feet are more prone to blisters. Too thin or too hard socks can also increase friction and cause blisters.   Tips for Preventing Blisters on Feet: Wear breathable socks. I can’t deny that choosing a pair of better shoes is important, but don’t forget that the socks are much closer to our feet than shoes. The breathable socks keep your feet dry and reduce the chance of blisters. Each pair of CHEGO Sports Socks has a honeycomb-shaped mesh design. The honeycomb-shaped mesh is implemented on insteps to keep our feet cool and dry. For people who need to wear socks for a long period, the design would greatly lower the blisters' rate. In addition, CHEGO Sports Socks has a soft cushion where the feet are prone to blisters. Like the cushioned design on the little toe, the metatarsal bone, and the tips of our toes.     If You Have a Blister Now: When you are getting a blister, it is important to stop any exercise. Use a band-aid to protect the blister, do not pop it! Most blisters will heal themselves after a few days. Popping the blister will increase the opportunity for infections. And you can sit down slowly, open CHEGO Sports Socks online shop, and pick the socks you like to prevent the blisters. — Shop CHEGO: 👉🏼Men’s 👉🏼Women’s

A healthy blood circulation would keep our foot agile and minimize the occurrence of swelling or pain.     Honeycomb-shaped Mesh: Evacuates hot air during exercises The honeycomb-shaped mesh was implemented on insteps to keep our foot cool and dry.  For people who need to wear socks for a long period, the design would greatly lower the bacteria growth rate and eliminate the foot odor.   Why did CHEGO name it “BAREFOOT”?
