While some may find it trendy to wear their loafers or boating shoes with no socks, this can be harmful for the overall health of your feet. Other than the obvious; stinky shoes and horrible foot odour that goes along with going sockless, there are various health benefits to wearing socks that many people are not aware of.
STOP THE STINK
Our feet have over 250,000 sweat glands and socks will help to soak up that excess sweat.
NO SOCKS- NO SHOCK ABSORBER
Socks (and shoes!) can help prevent unnecessary foot pain by providing a barrier between your feet and the hard surfaces we walk upon every day.
FEND OFF FUNGII
Wearing socks helps to prevent fungal diseases such as Athlete’s Foot. Always put on socks at the gym and other public places.
NOTHING WORSE THAN GETTING COLD FEET
Why suffer needlessly? Keep your toes nice and toasty and wear warm wooly socks in these colder seasons. You’ll also be staving off frostbite and hypothermia.
Socks are a great way to express your unique personality. Whether you are quirky or conventional, there a wide variety of socks out there to help you express your mood.
