One individual is fighting to promote the benefits of knee-highsocks
to all and sundry.
The unnamed contributor to the Herald explained that following a relatively botched varicose vein operation at a young age - young enough to insist on its removal, by their own admission - they opted for the helpful hosiery to cover the scar marks.
However, that was just the beginning of their love affair with the longer legwear
, noting that they are particularly great to deal with Scotland's less-than-tropical climate.
The individual continued: "I like winter and the chance to wrap up, wearing long, thick socks. I even enjoyed the one occasion when I was forced to wear a kilt - to a wedding, of course - since the uniform demanded knee-length woollen hosiery
And, with longer socks, circulation is improved and varicosity is avoided, it was concluded.
A recent piece for momlogic.com noted that women wanting to keep "the doldrums away" in later years may want to adopt knee-highsocks
to bring back a youthful air to living.Spread the message with your feet with our Charity Socks
