PT Socks

There are so many different varieties of socks being worn with the PT uniform that we are now introducing a standardised pair of PT socks. These socks will be compulsory from January 2022.

They will be available to buy from Rynfield Drapers (in stock) or Ekspa (still waiting for stock to arrive).
The new PT socks to be worn with the PT uniform and any sports that do not require the blue Invictus socks.

A reminder that only white or royal blue takkies/ running shoes may be worn. – No fashion shoes.
