All-in-One Powerful Footwear

The Performance Shock is the perfect sock for dancers who want dancer footwear with arch support, ankle support, and traction.

It's also wonderful in tap shoes, as a replacement for ballet shoes at barre warm-up, for recovery after pointe shoes, and as a leg saver on carpet at conventions! Each style of Apolla Socks fits your needs differently, but they all share our holistic patented support system.

Why We Made
The Performance Shock

The Sock That Changed Everything

The Performance Shock is the original compression padded dance sock, designed by dancers for dancers. 

Dance injuries are twice as common as football injuries from the knee down, with the majority of injuries due to inflammation. 

No other product on the market provides patented targeted foot support that is more like an orthotic and ankle brace than a sock, but more sock than shoe because it does not restrict range of motion. 

It also has padding shown to reduce force with every jump. All of this is provided in one powerful synergistic footwear to help prevent the risk of injury (e.g., plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, ankle sprains, stress fractures, etc.) and relieve pain. 

Apolla is the first and best in the dance sock industry to combat inflammation, not only as an ankle stabilizer but also by providing arch support and reducing force, helping you dance longer, stronger, and with less pain. Guaranteed.

Unmatched Value and Quality

The Performance Shock is made with high-quality materials that outlast knock-offs by 5 times. 

Our refreshable patented grip socks make them perfect for any genre of dance. We have evolved dance shoes to provide the necessary aesthetics, function, and pain relief that dancers deserve. 

With targeted support where the ligaments insert at the outer ankle and where the plantar fascia inserts in the foot, we reduce foot and ankle pain better than any other ankle sleeve or plantar fasciitis sleeve on the market. 

Additionally, this style has the option of traction. Apolla's patented grip is flat, allowing for a barefoot feel while being in control of your movement. It is also customizable to your preferences. Learn More HERE.

While this profile is often considered the classic contemporary jazz or contemporary ballet sock, it can really be used for everything from Acro to Zouk! Our products are trusted by the most elite dancers worldwide for injury prevention and recovery.
