I want to know the name of Ma Long's socks (time in the video is 1:19)

Can the footwork be in the socks?? :D Sadly I don't know what socks it is... maybe Mizuno.

You should know that those are National issue socks. You need to know the secret handshake to get ahold of those socks. And of course those socks help Ma Long's footwork. It's gotta be the socks.

Do you think that Ma Long changed to different socks after introduction of the new plastic ball to compensate for the reduced speed and spin?

Oh definitely. Those socks were designed for playing with the new Poly ball.

All joking aside. I confess, I have seen that logo on the sock before. But I don't know what company it is.

Haha! Damn I haven't changed yet, can that explain why I still prefer the old ball??

AIM:

The primary objective of this study was to test the aerodynamic properties of a selection of running and general sports socks.
METHODS AND PROCEDURES:

Eleven pairs of socks were tested in a specially constructed rig which was inserted into a fully calibrated wind tunnel. Wind test speeds included 3, 4, 5, 6, 12 and 45m/s.
RESULTS:

There was no significant difference between any of the socks tested for their aerodynamic properties. The drag coefficients calculated for each sock varied proportionally with the Reynolds number. No particular sock was more aerodynamic than any of the socks tested.
CONCLUSION:

There is no evidence that a sock that is "aerodynamically designed" will help an athlete go faster. This may be more product rhetoric than reality, and further work is justified if such claims are being made.

However, the socks for the new Poly ball help you grab the ball better and get more spin!

But only if you boost them.

yes, ofcourse, but only if two layers are aplied.

ALL JOKES ASIDE, BUT TOP ATHLETIC SOCKS FOR SPORTS HAS THICK CUSHION AROUND THE PALM AND THE TOES AND THE HEEL OF THE SOCKS TO PREVENT BLISTERS , ALSO ABSORB LESS IMPACT. AT THE END OF THE DAY, THE TOP QUALITY HIGH PERFORMANCE SOCKS WILL KEEP YOUR FEET HAPPIER AND LESS BEATEN AFTER A DAY OF HARD TRAINING. ALSO ITS LABEL LEFT AND RIGHT LETTER ON THE SOCKS TOO :p . THIS IS WHAT I USED FOR HARD DAY OF TRAINING . IF U DONT BELIEVE ME TRY IT AND U WILL SEE THE RESULT :)

Yes, they can help you until about the second time you wash them.

Yep, Nike Basketball socks are definitely good for playing table tennis. Hopefully they fit snugly "like a glove". With those and your shoe tied well and fitting just right, it is definitely better.

The first photo is on a bench in the NYC subway. But they look much better on. So here is another photo where you can see my glamorous feet.

I never thought it mattered till I tried those. I do believe they are the best sport sock for table tennis.

But you can see that mine are in fact the Special Pro Version that has been boosted to high hell in the Butterfly lab where they boost the pro models of Butterfly rubbers, socks and underwear.

BTW, through a secret handshake I heard that Butterfly has initated the development of so called "spring fabric" for the table tennis socks. The fabric has little bubbles of air inside, so the fabric acts like a spring. When you land on your feet after you made a step, the fabric first contracts, and then decompresses because of the "spring" effect. This way, the energy is not lost, and the decompression of the socks allows for a faster next step. Closed testing with the Japanese national team showed increase of the footwork speed by ~10%. Some people argue, though, that it will be banned by ITTF :(

Jokes aside, I'm definitely going to try them soon. Calluses at the sides of the balls of my feet drive me nuts.

A friend who is a pro tennis player (not table tennis, table tennis we are close to the same level) and real fussy about what he has on his feet when he plays table tennis, brought my attention to them. I don't wear them for anything but table tennis or working out. But they really are good for playing. And they seem to last a long time.
