Maya shows a jaguar, the Mayan spirit animal, leaping out of the jungle. In Mayan mythology, the jaguar could change itself into a fire spirit and rain spirit protecting the people of the tribe. In the background is the pyramid of Chichen Itza, a World Heritage Site and the most famous remnant of Maya civilization. When the sock is flipped, Mayan warriors appear to be hunting the jaguar in a metaphor for the demise of the Maya civilization -- a warning that the Earth may only be sustained through symbiosis and coexistence with the environment.
FLIPPOS MCP (Maze Cushioning Plus)
The Maya civilization is one of the world’s greatest ancient cultures. Originating in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, the civilization arose in 2600BCE and around 1100CE had completely died out.
Although the Mayans were a jungle people of the neolithic period, they were nonetheless extremely accomplished in astronomy, mathematics, agriculture, art and writing.
Scholars have differing views on why the Mayans died out, but one leading hypothesis is that the Mayans’ practice of cutting down forest to expand their living area destroyed the ecosystem they relied upon, leading to their extinction.
The irony is that all these years later, humanity’s greed and rapacity have not abated but continue to grow, and we are consuming the things we need to live. If we do not rethink our ways, perhaps our own modern civilization is not far from going the way of the Mayans.

The original idea of FLIPPOS hosiery is to create a pair of compression stocking fulfilling functions in every way. You could wear it to the office and exercise after work as well. Simply with ONE SAME pair of stocking.
Considering that most people either sit or stand for a long time for work in which cause the fatigue condition upon feet and calf, we develop our hosiery to apply ‘graduated compression’ from the sole of the foot to calf to improve this situation.
Additionally, wearing FLIPPOS during exercise could reduce muscle vibration effectively, produce greater strength, and improve the speed of fatigue recovery after exercising.
Flip the length, flip the attitude.
In order to cater for any occasion and any outfit, FLIPPOS creates the first compression hosiery that can be folded. You could wear it knee-high or fold it to the calf. The item can be transformed into socks within seconds.
★Length BEFORE flipping: Knee-High
★Length AFTER flipping: 18cm above ankle
FLIPPOS MCP (Maze Cushioning Plus)
FLIPPOS’ ultimate goal is the pursuit of the ultimate product. This time we have upgraded our original patented maze cushioning to strengthen the sole’s “knitted maze damping.” Both the hardness and the rebound speed are significantly improved, so when running, jumping or climbing, the notable shock-absorbing effect means no loss of power and full athletic release.
The compression levels adopted by FLIPPOS are the graduated compressions of 15-25 mmHg in accordance with EU regulation, which is NOT considered a high-compression medical product.
Daily wear, before and after exercise (running, cycling, skateboarding, mountain-climbing, physical training, etc.), traveling, taking long-distance flights, or improving problems before and after pregnancy.
The touch of similar to Egyptian cotton & silver fiber
The main material of the hosiery is tech nylon mixed with lycra yarn. In addition to that this material is four times more expensive than ordinary combed cotton, the main functions are quick moisture wicking and the touch of similar to Egyptian cotton.On top of that, silver fiber deodorizing technology has been added to the sole of stocking. The effect will NOT be reduced due to either the number of times being washed or however long the products has been bought.
