Healthy feet are important, after all, your feet carry you all day long. So you take good care of them, but perhaps the socks you wear all day long are even more important. Socks are on your feet all day, so it's nice to wear soft socks.
But is the softness of socks the most important thing? If you focus on soft socks, you still have a few choices to make. Softness is important, but it's not everything. Because besides wanting your socks to be soft, ventilation is just as important. And by ventilation we mean breathing. If socks don't breathe, unpleasant smells will linger for too long and that really won't please anyone when you take your shoes off. And maybe, but we're not sure, it's not good for the health of your feet either.
Rapid moisture absorption
The latter, the effect that the quality of your socks has on healthy feet, is certainly true when we talk about the second characteristic that is important for socks, including soft socks. And that is the speed at which your socks absorb moisture. Maybe you don't have “sweaty feet” (such a horrible term), but everyone's feet perspire. So yours likely do too. No problem, but it's nice if the fabric of your socks absorbs moisture quickly so it doesn't create a layer between your skin and the fabric of your socks.
Just imagine: 100% plastic socks
Just imagine your socks being 100% plastic. We think you already know what the effect will be if you wear them for a day: wet feet. Plastic does not absorb moisture. Your feet will slide around in your shoes and start to “wrinkle”, the same way as when you get out of the pool.
And finally, perhaps the most important question when it comes to soft socks is whether they contribute to reducing the risk of allergies.These soft socks by Undiemeister® are made primarily out of Tencel®. Because Tencel® is produced with minimal use of chemicals, no chemical residue is left behind in the fibres. That residue is often the reason for many allergic reactions.
So you can see that soft socks are important, but there are other properties that are important in addition to softness. With Tencel®, the chance of such an allergic reaction is minimised. Fortunately, Tencel® has all these properties.
Have fun walking!
