Knee-high socks are 'best hosiery ever'
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 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.
