Sports socks 'keep feet fit'
Brits looking to get fit in time for their summer holiday are being urged to think carefully about their choice of wardrobe before beginning their exercise routines.

Many people spend a long time choosing gym or running trainers, however David Castle, editor of Running Fitness magazine, claimed that socks can be "almost as important as the shoes themselves".

Mr Castle added: "Wear a lightweight performance sock that wicks sweat away from the feet."

"Don't be tempted to go sockless - you'll pay the price."

He suggests that by wearing socks with additional padding or without seams, exercising can be a lot more comfortable.

While a muscle injury can cut short a workout, so can blisters, underlining the importance of selecting sensible sports socks before joining a gym or starting jogging routine.
