Walking 'needs right socks and shoes'

Walking 'needs right socks and shoes'
The correct socks are key to a comfortable and productive walking experience, a blogger for CharityMile.com has stated.

Marilyn Noble highlighted the need for "quality walking socks", noting that heat and moisture were a bad mixture when wearing cotton legwear and combined with shear - the motion of one's foot inside the shoe.

She added that cotton socks would give a person a "crop of blisters" within minutes of serious walking.

Ms Noble continued: "Remember the old gym socks you used to wear for everything? They were usually cotton, unpadded, full of seams and slid around on your feet.

"If you still have any of those hanging out in your sock drawer, throw them away!"

Yesterday, presenter Ruth Langsford announced she would be attending a Portsmouth charity walk in aid of World Alzheimer's Awareness Day and encouraged others to join her in the "memory walk".
