You didn’t even know you needed these!
Wow! That is … a stretch for the marketing team. They may be wondering just how many they can sell if they rebrand a ‘lite sneaker’ as a gaming sock. I am curious how many they will sell.
Actually, all us sim pilots should use them!
Socks grab up dust, dirt and pet hair and then deposit it on our beloved rudder pedals. Using a rubber-soled shoe-like “sock” like this would help keep our pedals clean and improve their longevity.
Really, they are an investment!

I also sent the link to my friend and said we should get some.

They’re also trying to sell this in conjunction with a Puma playseat gaming chair.
right at the top of their innovations
Call them ‘tactical’ shoes and socks and sell a bundle of them!
they look more like knock off racing shoes
