Preventing and treating the causes of hallux valgus
Thanks to our expertise as a sock specialist, we have developed a model dedicated to the care and prevention of hallux valgus, otherwise known as a foot bunion. Prevent the problem today and keep it from getting worse with our hallux valgus support socks.
Podiatrist Dr. Kuwahara and TABIO LEG LABO have jointly developed support socks to prevent hallux valgus. In order to solve the problems of many people, Tabio, a sock specialist, has developed a support sock for hallux valgus under the supervision of Dr. Kuwahara, who treats 6,000 new patients a year at his clinic in Tokyo.

A special knitting method is used to correct the thumb to its original shape
A toe bent up to 15 degrees will return to its original shape when wearing this sock.
After wearing the socks and taking X-rays of several patients with hallux valgus, it was observed that the socks improved the original shape of their feet (for a deformation of between 10 and 15 degrees).
We have developed a special knitting method to support and correct your big toe simply by wearing our socks.
Hallux valgus socks are also designed for comfort !
The ground support function naturally focuses on the ball of the big toe when walking
It is difficult to put a load on the ball of the big toe for people with poor arch function. The fabric at this level is thicker so that you can walk comfortably.
Supporting the 3 points of the arch and toe
This sock raises the arch area like an insole.
Three-dimensional knit at the toe to reduce friction
The toe tips are three-dimensionally knitted to reduce chafing and contour the toes for greater comfort.
Highly breathable mesh and quick-drying deodorant material
The back of the foot is made of "Lyocell®" mesh, a deodorizing and quick-drying material. It is comfortable to wear.
The sole is covered with anti-slip material to increase the degree of grip with the shoe and its sole and thus promote good walking.
Loose socks for a comfortable fit.
