I live in South Florida so I can’t really compare our dressing habits to the rest of the country. I just wanted to share an observation with you. It’s probably something that no one would notice unless maybe they are weird or have a sock company like myself.
I suppose if you live up North and it’s under 50 degrees most of the time everyone wears socks. But at this South Florida Party I went to, it seemed like I was the only one wearing them. Down here in the tropics it’s a fashion trend to go without socks. Euck.
Socks wick away sweat from your foot. Sweat itself is relatively pure and doesn’t smell until it lingers in a warm dark place. A sock wicks away the sweat which helps it evaporate without growing as many bacteria. Eventually it will build up but it does offer a certain amount of protection. Remember your Mother’s words, change your socks every day.
Protect your feet. The human foot has 50 ligaments, 33 joints, 26 bones and 42 muscles. Not to mention tendons skin and muscles and a bunch of other materials. A good sock acts as a buffer to keep this marvel in good operating condition. As we get older all of these components wear out. Just like a car tire the better we treat them the more mileage you’ll get out of them.
Lastly socks aren’t the most obvious way to make a fashion statement but for some people they make a great fashion accessory. I’m pretty conservative so a black sock for anything but shorts works for me. We however carry a few different styles of dress stocks for those looking for a little panache. No matter what your color or style preference our socks are comfortable and affordable.
According to Emily Post we bet you didn’t know this sock fashion fact. Proper sock fashion and etiquette requires the men’s sock color to match the color of the pants and shoes. The sock should be one shade darker then the pants and one shade lighter then the shoes. So men that says to me that in order to remain sane we should have a lot of socks the same color and a couple of pairs of nice shoes. If we try not to complicate things we can stay fashionable.
Sam the Sock was your average anklet sock; he was worn every Monday for school. Sam the Sock had an amazing life, and he loved every second of it. Sam’s best friend was named Bill who was a tall crew Sock. Bill was worn on Monday afternoons to karate practice. Sam and Bill lived together; they were also washed together. The only time the two socks were separated was when one of them was being worn.
One night Sam and Bill decided to go on a brave adventure into the unknown, the closet. Sam had heard scary stories about the closet, from other socks in the drawer in which he and Bill the Sock lived. It was legend that once a sock entered the closet without his or her match, it would never return to the drawer. From the closet, it was said, that a sock would either spend years smothered by piles of laundry, suffocated by shoes, toys, games or what not’s. In the worst case it would simply be thrown out. A sock entering the closet was similar to a small school-boy taking on the daunting task of going into an abandoned house which was said to hold the ghost of a past soul. Needless to say, Sam and Bill were to very brave socks, so they headed out on an amazing sock adventure.
Deep into the night, Sam the Sock and Sally the Sock began their bold venture. They swiftly began to sneak out of the drawer, making sure to keep quiet so they wouldn’t wake the other socks. After tip-toeing their way to the closet door, they slipped through the opening under the entrance, and they entered the great unknown. The two socks were amazed at all they saw; they had seen most of the things in the closet before, shoes, pants, shirts, and belts, but they had never seen all of these things at once. They wandered about, but then the socks remembered the frightening stories that they had heard from the elder socks of the drawer.
Sam the Sock thought he had heard a noise, so he and Bill the Sock took off running. They slid back under the closet door and into the drawer. Sam and Bill took a breath, but tried to still remain quiet in order to keep from creating a disturbance in the sock drawer. Sam and Bill looked at each other and smiled, for they knew that they were braver than any of the socks that they lived with.
Sam Bill the Sock were sure to be best friends forever.
Get Softer Feet with this magical technique; if you think about it, socks keep our feet comfy, warm, and safe. Socks keep our feet free of dust, and protect the bottoms of our feet from becoming rough and getting calluses. Now the question is, how can one enhance the usefulness of our socks? It is a question that can be simply answered if one is willing to get a little creative.
Everyone wants soft feet. Although socks do keep your feet softer than they would be if one was to walk around barefoot all day, socks are not reaching their full potential. What are two things that assist in keeping your feel smooth? That’s right, lotion and socks. What if there was a way to utilize the best of both? Well if you’re up to trying something new, there just might be a way to combine the best of both.
How does easing your foot into a pleasing pool of creamy lotion sound? At first thought it may sound strange and unattractive, but we were always taught not to judge a book by its cover, so you need to try this before you shoot it down and use socks for a magical experience. It may even be uncomfortable at first, but after a while, it’s like your foot is being pampered.
So take a chance; sit back, relax. Just slip on a sock full of lotion, and let the magical, soothing love take place.
Your shoes offer you a lot of protection and honestly you don’t see many modern day human types running around without them. So technically the most protective part of your wardrobe is your socks. Sure they wick and absorb sweat but your feet probably wouldn’t sweat in the first place if you didn’t wear shoes. There are a lot of human cultures today that still don’t wear shoes and socks. Generally you’ll only find them in places where there aren’t many modern day inventions like shards of broken glass, gravel roads, pieces of sharp metal lying around and other newly shattered inventions. Sure if you run around in bare feet enough you will build up a thick layer of skin on the bottom of your feet but they will only take so much abuse.
I know a couple of people who run around without socks and just wear their shoes. The problem with that is in the long run the friction it creates will eventually effect your feet. Your socks in a nutshell protect you from your shoes and wick away moisture from your feet. Plus socks actually have a duel purpose of protecting your shoes from your feet.
So what is the best kind of sock to wear? Cotton socks are strong but don’t hold up long after a lot of washing, not very elastic and terrible at wicking moisture. They will fail to hold their shape and terrible at friction control. They are the least expensive and easy to find but should be avoided. Wool socks are great at absorption while synthetics are great at repelling it. The drawback to wool though is that it shrinks which is a bad thing not only when you wash it but the foot perspires heavily. At rest the average foot produces over ten gallons of sweat per year. Tough on wool and just imagine what it does to your nice leather shoes.
When it comes down to it your best choice is a blend of fabrics. We like cotton, polyester, and a touch of elastic. The amounts will be up to you to fine tune on your own.
