ReflecToes use the motion of your legs to grab the attention of drivers and identify yourself as a walker, runner or cyclist. Our brains are wired to detect motion. That means that you will get the attention of drivers from farther away when they see your ankles bobing up and down. We also instantly recognize BIO-MOTION and can identify the familiar human motion of your ankles moving.
360° reflective coverage means drivers that come upon from all sides will see the familiar motion.
Studies Show Motion Is Key
When wearing reflective on your legs (showing your bio-motion), studies show cyclists are identified correctly 90% of the time. With reflective vests? Only 50% of the time.
The gold standard for visibility is no longer just the reflective vest, complete your high viz running or cycling kit with ReflecToes socks and gloves.
10 Times Brighter Than Reflective Yarns
Many sock manufacturers use reflective yarns to add some reflective to cycling and running socks because it is easy to do; just switch out the yarn. While this is better than nothing, there is a better technology available that all road worker uniforms use instead of reflective yarns: Reflective HTL/Fabric
Reflective HTL uses thousands of directionally orientated, mirrored spheres to reflect more light back to the source (the car). Reflective yarns uses similar spheres, but they are not mirrored (metal coating on back) or oriented facing the right way. The result is HTL reflects 10-100 times more light back to the source.
The reason there are no other socks that use this HTL technology is usually durability. They are not able to get more than 5 washes before their HTLs crack or peel off. ReflecToes lasts at least 50 wash/wear cycles and may 100+.
RelfecToes only uses reflective HTL or Fabric to keep you safe.
New and Improved Durability and Fit – 50+ Washes No Cracks
After our highly successful crowdfunding campaign, our first customers gave us 3 pieces of valuable feedback that we implemented in our current version. We discontinued the version that has problems with the below
Durability of Reflective: Now we can promise no cracking or peeling of the reflective bits before 50 washes. After 50 washes, there could be some cracking, but they will still be reflective and high performing socks for many more washes. Fit For Shoe Size 10+: The old sock didn’t stretch too well over the heel. Now it is easy to put on and fits great up to shoe size 12. Toe comfort: We now use low profile toe seams resulting in more toebox comfort.

HIGH REFLECTIVITY – We only use high reflective (>300 lux/m2) material because it will increase the distance at which you are seen by drivers. We do NOT use reflective yarn that is about 10% as bright because the reflective beads are not oriented the same way. We use thousands of directionally orientated, spherical mirrors to reflect 10-50 times more light back to the source than reflective yarns to make you visible at a greater distance.
DURABILITY GUARANTEED – Our NEW and IMPROVED socks last over 50 wash cycles. No other reflective socks with HIGH reflective (>300 lux/m2) have this much reflective surface that withstands over 50 washes without cracking or peeling. If you are wearing the right size sock and have any issues, contact us and we’ll send a free replacement or refund.
BIO-MOTION IS KEY – The attention grabbing motion of your legs, not only gets you noticed, but also gets you recognized as a person because of your Biological motion. Our brains are wired to notice movement and identify familiar motion. Studies show you will be identified as a cyclist 90% of the time with reflective on your legs; 50% of the time with a reflective vest.
HIGH PERFORMANCE -Moisture wicking yarns keep your feet dry and comfortable. Mesh vent upper keeps your feet cool. Arch support for comfort and stability
