There are many wearables out in the market designed for soccer (or football for European visitors). However, most of these products are either designed for professional athletes to track their fitness or to help detect concussion. SockIt is an exception. The aim of this wearable is to help young soccer (or football) players shoot properly.

The company was founded by Joe Briganti because he realized a lack of training aide to help his daughter kick using top of the shoe instead of their toes. The concept of this wearable is fairly simple. A one size fits all design can be secured on your soccer cleat (or football boots) and it lights up when the kick from the top of the shoe is detected. With trackers embedded in various different positions, it not only gives an instant feedback on the kick but it aides player on focusing on different side kicking techniques.
