Parasole 3D Recovery Socks

Give your tired feet the support they need with the Parasole 3D Recovery Socks. This footwear combines the comfort of compression socks with the benefits of a supportive insole. Plus, it offers the protection and traction of an outsole. The patent-pending technology provides better pressure distribution, micro-cushioning and dynamic arch support. By adapting the natural shape of your feet to the ground you walk on, Parasoles relieve achy feet no matter where you are. Similarly, the polymer sole offers more traction on slippery surfaces and protects sock fibers. With 360 degrees of breathability, the recovery socks allow your feet to breath and help them stay cool. The Ultra-Fresh antimicrobial protection also keeps your feet fresh all day long by preventing odor. In addition, you can simply wipe Parasoles clean when you don’t feel like washing them.

You have mentioned updated knits. Will this apply to all colors, or only the black and white colors?
Andres Tapia
Is the arch support customized like foot orthotics ?
Frankie estrada
Will the anthracite blavk color be available if u don't get the stealth pack? When we choose color and size?
Hi Adam,
Thanks for being a super early supporter! You will have an opportunity to add to your early bird deal when we send out your survey after our Kickstarter campaign ends. You can select your sizes, colors, and enter shipping. You may also add any perks missed during the campaign. Thanks again.
Hey Everness,
Thanks for supporting. Yes, our Kickstarter first batch will be in standard widths and down to a women's size 6. We are considering opening additional sizes (5) after our campaign, and as we review what backers are requesting. We hope they will be coming.
Hi Laura,
Parásoles are primarily for training and recovery. We would not recommend using them to play tennis. Our hybrid socks are designed to be breathable, comfortable, and supportive. For all the times you wished to wear socks, but had to wear shoes. Thanks! We think you'll love them too!
Adam Jeantet
I am in on the 2 for $49 deal... I was just wondering if I could add on other deals or even the same deal again for the same price? Also will I be able to buy more after the campaign ends at the same price I bought for?
Everness Evangelista
My sister and I travel a lot and all the walking sure does a number on our feet. I backed the 2 pair tier with the intention of gifting one to my sister for Christmas! I would love to see a US 5 (as I have small feet) hopefully be considered for this production run and wider sizes (for both me and my sister) later on down the road. Looking forward to receiving the two pairs!
Laura Swettenham
Hi, just wondered if these could be used whilst playing tennis or if it was just for lower impact activities? Love the parasole by the way, can't wait to get my pair!
Hi Jaci,
You have a very good eye. We produced no show prototypes and completed wear testing recently. We offered the no show version as a stretch goal, because of the additional investment in tooling and R&D. We may be opening it up as an option to backers after our campaign ends, and as we complete orders.
Thank you.
Awesome! Thanks Lynn!
The past 30 days have been super amazing!
I can't believe we're almost at the end.
Hi Jessica, I understand what happening now. Here are two options. 1. you can choose to add an additional $55 to your existing pledge level for the same reward. 2. Or if easier you can add the stealth pack when we send out your survey following our campaign. Thank you for supporting!

Hello, I noticed in the campaign section for "Leisure Wear" and in the video at 2:10, the girl sitting on the left is wearing a no-show turquoise&black pair, however I didn't see this option anywhere in the available colors section. In fact I didn't see any no-show style mentioned at all, I was hoping that you might offer that option on the last day but it doesn't seem like it. Are you planning on opening that up as an option for your backers? Thanks!
Congratulations on raising over ten times your original goal, with over a day to go.
The same was true for me. If I wanted to add stealth, I would lose my early backing statue; that’s why I asked about simply adding the extra $55 to my pledge. What would you like me to do? Thanks.
Hi Antron,
Thanks for your question. Parásoles are graded to your shoe size, so there's less guessing. In your case, we recommend an EU 40/US 7. If you are unsure of your shoe size, you can measure on a sheet of paper to get your length.
Should we get the usual shoe size that we wore or follow the chart given? Via barefoot? I wear a Euro 40, US 7, UK 6 shoes.. JP 25cm for those popular shoe size.. My barefoot measure 24cm. What should I take?
Hi Frankie,
Interesting question, and a good one. Parásoles should easily withstand walking on hot asphalt or concrete on a hot summers day. In fact our polymers melting point is well over 200 deg F
If you can walk in your shoes, you should be able to walk in your Parásoles as well. Thanks again.
Hi Kevin,
Good question. You can increase your pledge amount, although Kicksarter only allows you to select one reward tier at a time. You may also adjust your pledge and rewards at the end of our campaign.
We'll send your survey to choose sizes, colors, and add ons a few days after our campaign completes this Friday. Thanks so much for supporting.
Frankie estrada
How would the material on bottom of sole react to a hot surface like going outside in hot day? Would it melt?
Kevin Grove
I would like to contact you about adding the stealth pack to my order. I can't seem to find a way to contact you though. Thanks!
Hi Michaelangelo,
No worries, we can make adjustments when we send your survey at the end of our campaign. If you could also email us, we will make sure you're at the early bird discount pledge level. Thank you for supporting.
Michaelangelo D'sa
I am backer no 88 in case you will need that reference
Michaelangelo D'sa
hello....I recently tried to upgrade my pledge by adding the $55 anthracite parasoles only to loose my previous $49 for 2 offer in the process...please revert my pledge back to my initial do I add the $55 order to the pledge....pls advise
Hey Jessica, you should be able to modify your pledge level, and add the stealth pack.
Let us know if that works for you. Thank you for supporting.
Hi Marco,
I'm not sure if you noticed, but we released a blue/gray heather color a couple weeks ago. Earlier today we released the Parásole Stealth Pack with Anthracite/black 3D recovery socks, with a black amber translucent sole! Take a look at our newest update. We think you like it! Not sure about a one color option, but perhaps in the near future. If there's another color you would like to see,
feel free to send us a message.
Hi Derek,
Good question.
Parásoles are primarily for recovery and support. We do not recommend playing tennis or running in them. We would say wear them to the match, and again after you play. You can also wear them in some casual/lifestyle shoes. they may not fit in your trainers. For sizing, we recommend sizing 1/2 size down. In your case a 10 should work well. Thank you.
Can I add the stealth pack on to my current pledge by just increasing the pledge amount?
Marco Morelli
Is there any chance you can make a more masculine color? All the colors seemed to be geared toward women or semi-unisex. Also, all the colors are clearly a "sock", any chance of a clean one-color option? Maybe a clean medium gray?
Derek Scambler
I have a bad back and wear custom orthotics for everyday life but have struggled to find something comfortable for sports. I have tried lots of brands (and sizes) of trainers and different off the shelf orthotics but always end up with blisters. I like the idea of your 'socks' as I think this will give me a bit of the support I need without the blisters. Would I be able to play tennis etc. wearing only these or would you recommend wearing them in a trainer? I'm also usually a UK size 10 sometimes 10.5. What size should I go for?
Hello Livearichlife,
Thank you for your comment and suggestions. We are so thankful for all of our amazing supporters. Each stretch goal we offer requires some additional investment. Our first stretch goal of a new Parásole color meant we needed to meet minimum order quantities with our factory partners (MOQ's). Our second stretch goal requires more research and testing to engineer the technology into a minimal silhouette, and needs additional molds for fit. We would like to offer as many perks as possible, although we need to ensure we can pay for the investment required to bring a new version of our product to market. We hope to reach our new goal, so we can offer more. Thank you for supporting.
There are only 3 days left in this campaign. It is our support that has made it possible for the no-show Parásole to become a reality, right?! So why not, even in the absence of reaching the new stretch goal - of increasing sales to $200,000 within these last 3 days - offer us early supporters the option to select your no-show Parásole as our pledge reward or alternately as an add-on option to increase sales?! If there are no hurdles or extra expense to fulfill pledges with the no-show Parásole, why wouldn't you offer this to us (choice of color and style; regular or no-show) as an option in the survey which follows the close of this campaign? The add-on mesh bags that you're planning to offer is a nice idea, but I bet if you allowed us to vote between this or the option to select our preferred style of Parasole - the option to select our preferred style of Parasole would likely win the majority vote amongst your kickstarter supporters/backers. That would be a very considerate and mutually-rewarding business decision - as it would make us feel valued for believing in you and backing you. And by using less fabric, doesn't this increase profits anyways?
Hey Lenny,
Parasoles help prevent overpronation by providing arch support and relief for fatigued feet. Since Plantar Facisiitis is an overuse injury sometimes caused by overpronation, our hybrid socks could very well help.
Would this sock help with plantar fasciitis issues?
Sure David. We will honor your original award level. We're happy to offer this awesome perk to all our loyal early backers. Thank you for believing in Parásole. More exciting updates to come.
David Song
Ok and I will be able to purchase at the same reward level?
Hey David,
Thank you for supporting.
Yes, You will have the opportunity to add on pairs at the end of our campaign. We'll send out a survey after the campaign to select your sizing, colors, and shipping information. You will also be able to upgrade your original pledge.
David Song
Hello, I currently have the way two early bird special. If I wanted to add 2 more pairs, is there any way I can add to my currently reward level.
Hi Peter,
Thank you. Our team's inspired by all the support.
Great suggestion. Mesh bags for washing and carrying were included with some of our early rewards. We'll also offer them at the end of our campaign for everyone who missed out.
Hi Alejandro,
Thanks for your question. We recommend sizing down if you're between sizes. If you decide to size up, we'll offer exchanges as well.
Alejandro Jesus Favela Nava
Hi guys, quick question: I think I might be between sizes, will you offer size exchanges?
Peter Franken
Hi creator, Congrats on the stretch goal. A new one could be a washing bag if the parasols have a risk of getting damaged I side the washing machine
Hi Sylvano,
Parásoles are quite different in the manufacturing process, and feature a generative designed sole with arch support. Our technology helps with overpronation and supports fatigued feet. They are also 360 degrees breathable, which keep them from getting too warm inside, or retaining moisture. Parásoles are for the times we wished to wear our socks without the restriction of shoes.
Sylvano Tumelero
So, I really like walking barefoot. I'm currently using Skinners when just walking around for that slim "sole" for protection against gravel, etc. How do your socks compare to Skinners? These should be more rigid? I guess there are better for walking "barefoot" on the streets (or hard surfaces) while Skinners are perfect for walking on softer ground?
Hi EG,
Parásoles are hybrid footwear that can be worn whenever you'd like more arch support and traction in the freedom and breathability of a sock.
We have a $35 reward (1x Parásole) without a gift, and a $39 reward with gift for just $4 more.
Thank for supporting.
A quick question? Can't figure out if this is a shoe for daily use or a sock?
Whats the difference between the 35 usd and 38 usd with gift? Which is more worrth it for early backers? This is confusing
Hi Sher Li,
Very good question.
The fit really depends on the shoe and how much toe box room your have in it. Parásoles will fit some lifestyle/casual shoes. You may want to remove the insole insert to allow a bit more room, so it really depends on the shoe and how much wiggle room you have. Thank you.
Tan, Sher Li
I wear EUR39 shoes, do I order the same size parasole socks or one size smaller if I intend to wear them with shoes on?
Hi Paul Voorend,
Thanks for your inquiry. We had recent inquiries about rewards for backer referrals. We decided to extend the same discount from our earliest backers to any friends or family. We are also looking at extending a 50% Off discount for new referrals and a free gift.
Please email us for more details.
