Rugby union powerhouse New South Wales Waratahs are back in Grip Star for a second season – and this time you can get the same socks the stars wear in our online store.
The Australian Super Rugby club’s stable of stars will wear Grip Star performance socks as part of their official training uniform as they prepare for the 2022 season under an expanded two-year partnership.
The Waratahs have previously worn Grip Star socks for the past two campaigns as they tackled their rivals head-on in the world’s premier provincial rugby competition.
And, with their players and coaches big fans of Grip Star’s unrivalled grip and supreme comfort, there was never a doubt this exciting partnership would continue.
Best of all the NSW Waratahs Training Range is now available to the general public via the Grip Star online store.
WHY THE NSW WARATAHS CHOOSE GRIP STAR SOCKS
In a competition as fierce as Super Rugby, not just any old socks will do. That’s why the NSW Waratahs’ partnership with Grip Star is going from strength to strength.
One player that knows the importance of keeping your feet in high-intensity contests is robust front-rower Harry Johnson-Holmes.
“Grip Star socks provide me with a great platform to perform my role as a front-rower for the Waratahs,” Johnson-Holmes said.
“They allow me to get the best grip I can in scrums and give me the confidence to change directions quickly with my ball carries across the park.”
Grip Star also has plenty of fans across the fleet-footed backline, with nimble fly-half Will Harrison.
“As a fly-half my game revolves around my footwork, from kicking to running the ball and changing directions quickly,” he explained.
“Grip Star socks are incredibly comfy and give me the confidence I need to perform my roles for the Waratahs at the highest level.”
NEW CUSTOM DESIGNS EXCLUSIVELY FOR NSW WARATAHS
For the 2022 season, the Waratahs have upped the ante by collaborating with Grip Star’s design team for two bold and unique designs that combine their iconic sky blue and navy blue colour scheme.
Each design prominently features the Waratahs name across the leg cuff of each of the crew socks, with Grip Star’s ‘GS’ icon on the back and full branding on the foot.
A bold red stripe completes the look – a reference to the striking blossom of the New South Wales state floral emblem that gives the Waratahs their famous name.
And, like the rest of the Grip Star range, the new Waratahs line includes:
- Traction creating anti-slip panels on the sole that improve speed, acceleration and stability.
- Breathable mesh on the foot upper that draws away sweat to reduce odors and fight fungus.
- Padded foot to reduce impact and friction injuries to feet and toes, including blisters, bruising and calluses.
- Snug and supportive fit to promote circulation and reduce muscle fatigue.
- Durable construction that thrives in the toughest settings and holds up wash after wash.
- Cutting edge design that delivers maximum comfort and flexibility.
GRIP STAR IS FOR ALL TEAMS BIG AND SMALL
The NSW Waratahs is just one of a growing number of sports clubs and teams across the world partnering with Grip Star Socks for custom designs.
Grip Star Australia Business Development Manager, Joel Mulvenney, explained that even the smallest clubs can get the same advantage as professional athletes.
“We are delighted to partner with the NSW Waratahs for the next two seasons and excited to bring these socks to the public through our online store,” he explained.
“At Grip Star we are committed to partnering with clubs in a range of different sports so all their participants can get the advantage of our sports performance socks.”
“Whether it is custom designs, or simply large commercial orders in club colours, we can help out clubs and teams whether they at the elite level like the Waratahs or a small community sports club.”
