The Right Socks Can Change Your Life
Apart from protecting your feet from blisters and sores, wearing a good pair of socks helps to keep your feet dry and also prevent from ingrown toenails and fungal infections like athlete's foot. A good pair of socks can be as important as a good pair of shoes. Like anything else you wear, it’s always a good idea to look for well-made eco-friendly items that are going to last.
The new trend wearing socks with slides is great because it's not only a cool look but the socks will keep your feet soft and clean from street dirt and dust and provides an extra cushion to your feet too.

About Cotton Socks
If you have sweaty feet 💦 or if you exercise, don't opt for cotton socks!
Although cotton is the most common fabric for socks, it's not the optimum fabric for sweaty feet or exercise. Cotton absorbs moisture which get trapped against your skin, making you feel damp and hot as you sweat. Although cotton is a breathable fabric, it also retains heat, and can make your feet sweat more trapping odour and bacteria.
About Sustainable Performance Socks
If you think that small items like socks can't make a big environmental impact, you'd be surprised. 85% of socks produced end up in landfill. Just like other clothing items, they can negatively impact the planet if they are mass produced in fabrics that are not eco-friendly. By making thought through purchases you can prevent fashion waste by opting for brands that produce sustainably.
It's always a good idea to opt for quality so that your socks will last for years. Wash your socks in a laundry bag so they don't get lost because who does not have odd socks in their drawers.
If you are looking for the perfect work-out sock choose between padded or double-layered socks. Padding in socks improve cushioning in high impact areas. Double layering of fabric within the sock will also help minimise friction perfect for sport-specific activities, but great for everyday use too.
