Healthy feet are 'down to legwear'
An American writer has highlighted a number of tips for footwear fans who wish to harness the power of comfortable clothing to make their feet look and feel better.

Dierdre Cox Baker highlighted statistics presented by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) which noted the importance of socks to the healthiness of feet.

It was noted that polysynthetic socks gave a way out for moisture trapped in the shoe, meaning that it would not be as prone to causing blisters.

Furthermore, those prone to lower circulation or diabetes may want to look for seamless socks as large lines of stitching can cause irritation.

The APMA added: "Evaluate each sock’s fit, making sure that there is no loose fabric around toes or heels. Conversely, socks that are too tight can decrease circulation and comfort."

Aiming to increase the public's awareness of foot problems, the APMA is the leading organisation for feet in the US.
