4 things to keep in mind when choosing and keeping socks functional…
1) For sport, leisure or business?
The choice of socks should correspond to the activity you are going to do. Quality socks should keep your feet dry, heat or cool, reduce sweating, prevent odors and improve blood flow to the feet. Sports socks are usually made of synthetic materials, on the contrary, for normal wear, prefer natural materials that are breathable and comfortable. In addition, materials with an admixture of silver fibers are antibacterial and help against mold. You should also use different materials depending on the season.
2) You should pay the same attention to choosing socks as you choose shoes.
The width of the socks in the toe is crucial. Socks that are too narrow pull their toes together and often cause their fingers to rub when walking. On the contrary, I move too loose in the shoe while walking and contribute to abrasions on the heel. Socks that have a tight hem tightening the calf will affect the blood supply to the foot. The imprints of the rubber bands from the socks are therefore also at the waist. You should feel comfortable in socks.
Did you know that…
history of colored socks dates back a hundred years? The 1920s were marked by distinctive checkered, striped and other sock patterns. Especially in sports – the stronger the socks, the better. Experiments with colors also began. From primarily functional socks, it suddenly became a fashion issue.
3) Despite the playful style, don’t forget the etiquette.
It’s good to keep in mind that the same color of socks will optically lengthen your leg, while the color contrast of socks and pants will shorten it. Socks should also be of sufficient length. When you sit down, your pants will rise by about 12 centimeters. Socks should reach at least 18 cm above the ankle. Never show the calf. It is important to tastefully match colors and motifs with other clothes and accessories adequate to the event you are going to. Even if it is a promotional gift. Properly chosen colors and motifs in combination with your logo will have a major impact on the first impression of your company. Even in this case, you should think about to whom and where you want to put promotional socks.
4) Plating socks is grazing. How to prevent wear?
Like other clothes, socks require proper care. Wash wool socks in special wool products at a temperature of up to 40 ° C. Choose hand wash or wool program. If the wool material is 20% combined with polyester or nylon precipitation you do not have to worry. Conversely, socks made of a mixture of wool and acrylic tend to pull out. Don’t be afraid to add fabric softener to your socks, which will soften and smell them. The dryer can damage fibers and wool socks that do not tolerate rapid temperature changes can collide.
