Sporty types looking to purchase their next pair of athletic socks
are being told to look beyond colour when choosing their footwear.
The key factors to choosing a good pair of athletic socks
are stitching and materials, podiatrist Dr Joseph Di Francesca tells the Norwich Bulletin.
He points out that the best sports socks
have no stitching, as this can be a source of irritation, and suggests that material should be capable of wicking - lifting away moisture from the skin - and antimicrobial.
made from merino wool or silver-based fibers are particularly good choices, the foot expert continues.
"While the purchase of athletic socks
should not become a major life decision, there is more to it than just colour," he added.
