A cut below the rest - and that’s a good thing!
Low cut socks just look better with trainers. Sorry guys, but men in shorts with crew socks and trainers just don’t make it in the style stakes. When the weather warms up and the shorts go on, do not reach for the long socks. You have been warned. You need trainer socks... for trainers. Duh.
A trainer sock but any other name...
...might not smell as sweet as a rose, but they do a similar job. If you want a low profile sock for the no-socks look, try sneaker socks or invisible socks - no, they’re not ACTUALLY invisible, but they sit so low on a man’s foot, you won’t notice them in shoes. If you’re wearing espadrilles or deck shoes this summer, you need these low-fitting socks. Never just go without socks, it’s bad for your feet and footwear.
Don’t let summer feet become smelly feet
Besides changing your socks daily, you can stop the demon stench of feet in sports shoes by choosing socks in quality breathable materials, which is why cotton trainer socks and recently, bamboo trainer socks, are always popular. But choose an antibacterial trainer sock and you can actively fight the source of the smell – bacteria, and help avoid fungal infection too.
Barefoot – Absolutely not!
Whatever you do, don’t be tempted to go barefoot in your trainers. It’s not healthy for your skin or the trainer either. A man’s trainer sock protects him from the risks of abrasion, blisters and athlete’s foot, soaks up moisture and cushions for comfort. You’re also extending the life of your trainers, because salty, manly sweat will destroy them.
Be a good sport
Actual sports trainer socks are far more technically capable for serious sportsmen. Whether you’re hitting the road for a run, working out in the gym, or cycling for fitness, sport-specific trainer socks protect and enhance performance. Anatomically shaped trainer socks can conform exactly to feet, with targeted cushioning or compression. A Heel tab often features in these trainer socks higher at the heel to protect the Achilles’ tendon.
