Selecting socks for sports 'seriously important'
Everyone knows it is very important to select a good pair of shoes for going running or jogging but it is also important to select appropriate sport socks, an expert has urged.

Ruth Gorman, writing for the Belfast Telegraph, explained that picking up three pairs of black socks for £1.50 is not going to provide adequate support for those going running.

Furthermore, "sock technology" has dramatically increased over recent years, she continued.

Sports socks now contain anti-blister design factors, protective padding and other elements designed to reduce the risk of injury, the reporter noted.

"According to the professionals we should give as much thought when choosing our socks as we do our running shoes," Ms Gorman added.

Recently, sock commentator Lee Nessel, writing for the Coloradoan, suggested that compression socks can help athletes by encouraging blood flow back up the trunk of the body and towards the heart and lungs.
