To sock or not to sock? Your summer what to wear guide
Posted by SOCKSHOP
It’s that time of year again. The sun comes out and men across the land start to ditch their socks, letting their ankles free to feel the soothing warmth of the summer breeze.
|Read our quick guide to the debate and see what you should be opting for this summer…
The pros: According to experts, our feet produce around half a pint of sweat every day. That’s a lot of sweat. If we’re wearing socks, all that sweat gets absorbed quickly, meaning our feet are much more comfortable. Bamboo socks are your best bet for absorbent socks that still keep you cool.
And it’s not just comfort reasons, either. If you’re a savvy sock wearer, you can turn your socks into a fashion statement. Chuck on a pair of rainbow socks for pride, or break up an outfit with a dash of ankle colour.
The cons: Socks are great in winter, but when the mercury rises the idea of putting on some socks doesn’t exactly sound appealing. Socks can feel restrictive when the temperature heats up, and taking them off is freeing.
From a fashion point of view, sometimes socks just don’t look right. Or even if socks would go with an outfit, you don’t have the right colour socks to make it work. And unless you have socks in every shade of colour imaginable, that could well happen.
