In India, the company would be taking the online route for selling the socks as well as look at tie-ups with sports retail stores.

Globally, it sells around 800 pairs a day and around 45 per cent of the players in the English Premier League use Trusox, as per the company. The socks were created by former footballer and coach Jim Cherneski. "Having begun our journey with football, where we are proud to support the top footballers such as Gareth Bale, Raheem Sterling, Luis Suraez, to name a few, adorning and ruling over the football pitch wearing their Trusox, we are now present across the world in nine sports," Sachar said.

Sharma said that he has seen a lot of footballers and cricketers use Trusox. "Trusox has been an essential part of my kit as it helps boost my performance. I look forward to a long partnership with them," he added.
