Choosing the Right Socks

While most people spend a good amount of time making sure a new pair of shoes fits, many don’t bother trying to find a good pair of socks. There are many different types of socks, with newer, extravagant types such as synthetic socks being an excellent choice. Of course, selecting the right pair of socks depends on  the activity you’ll be doing as well. Cotton socks are fine for everyday use, while synthetic or nylon socks are good for intense activities where your feet will be sweating. Wool socks are a good choice for winter hiking. Socks should be about a half-inch longer and quarter-inch wider than your foot. Be wary of the material of the sock because some materials can shrink when washed. Finally, never wear dirty socks, as this can increase the likelihood of foot fungi infecting the foot. Quality socks can prevent blister and fungi and provide comfort. When it comes to picking new socks, take your time and make sure they are right for you.
