Falcons combine the comfort of a sock with the practicality of a shoe.
March 22, 2019
Bequipe today launched a Kickstarter campaign for its new product: Falcons, the ultimate gaming socks. Falcons combine the comfort of a sock with the practicality of a shoe. Partnering with professional gamers, Falcons set the ambitious goal of completely re-thinking the way we play video games. The ultimate gaming socks are made to be stylish, lightweight and comfortable, and with features such as improving blood circulation and a strong outsole to walk.
“Having a good keyboard and a good computer mouse is essential. At Bequipe, we go further and beyond, we create products dedicated to players’ well-being,” said Remi Colmet Daage, CEO and Co-founder of Bequipe. “Most brands do not give enough importance to the physical conditions of players and even less to the bottom part of their body. For us, gamers are athletes who need to feel in perfect physical shape from head to toe.”
Comfort has a major impact on gamers’ performance. The ability to stay focused for long time periods will give you an advantage to win over your opponents. The Falcons are designed with a wide trim whose elasticity compresses the legs and ensures blood flow. The innovative association between textile fibers and plastic energy allows players to sit for a long time and optimize blood circulation.
To ensure a thermal regulation, the base of the sock is made of a soft but thick fabric keeping your feet warm, and the top is made of super breathable fine mesh. By combining Techno.p.e®, the latest generation of high performance fabrics with cotton, Falcons preserve well-being while gaming. The outsole material has been 3D-engineered to be solid and light: solid, to let you walk everywhere, and light, to give the impression of wearing nothing. This innovative outsole also keeps your feet perfectly isolated from the cold from the ground.
“Design is inspired by gamers who start at home and aim to climb to the top. Players should be able to have the same level of comfort in all gaming environments. Whether you play at home, go to a LAN or compete on professional stages, the Falcons will deliver absolute comfort without compromise,” said Hugo Lecourt, Co-founder and Product Designer.
Gaming is the main purpose of the Falcons but not the only one – the ultimate gaming socks are in fact the ultimate indoor socks: Netflix & Chill, writing a code line or the next article on your blog; whatever you’re doing on your desk, the Falcons will suit you in the best possible way.
Bequipe, a start-up based in Paris, France, develops innovative products to improve players’ comfort and performance. Our main goal: solve gamers’ physical issues through technology. In 2018, we were launching the first gaming hand warmer: Kaliento. We are now working on the future of gaming. From casuals to pro-gamers, from PC to console, the Bequipe line of devices will improve the way gamers play, train and compete.
