Healthy feet are important, after all, feet are working for you all day long. So take good care of them, but maybe the socks you walk in all day are even more important. Socks are wrapped around your feet all day long, making it even nicer if you have soft socks on.
But is the softness you feel with soft socks the most important factor? If you focus exclusively on soft socks there are a few choices you can make. Softness is certainly important, but not enough. Because while you want yout socks to be soft, ventilation is at least just as important. And by ventilation we mean breathability. If socks are not breathable, bad odors will stick around for too long and that’s no fun for anyone if you take off your shoes. And maybe, but we are not sure about that, that is not very good for the health of your feet either.
Fast moisture absorption
The latter, so if the effect of quality socks on your feet is positive, we know that for sure when talking about the second characteristic that is important for socks, having soft socks. And that is the speed at which moisture is absorbed. Maybe you don’t have what people refer to as “sweaty feet” (what a frustrating term really – but hyperhidrosis isn’t much), but everyone’s feet sweat at one point. So most likely yours as well. No problem of course, but if you know that, it is great when the fabric of your socks can absorb moisture quickly so the moisture doesn’t stay on your feet. It is almost like a barrier between your skin and the fabric of your socks.
Just imagine: 100% plastic socks
Imagine that your socks are made out of 100% plastic. You walk on these for a day and you already know what the effect will be: soaking wet feet. Plastic does not absorb moisture. Your feet will slide around in your shoes and “wrinkle”, the effect you sometimes see when you come out of the pool.
And last but not least, perhaps the most important characteristic when we talk about soft socks, whether they contribute to reducing the risk of allergies. The soft socks from Undiemeister® are made from Mellowood®, which consists of Tencel™ and organic cotton. Because these substances have not been produced with the help of chemicals, no chemical residue is left in the fibers. That residue is often the reason for many allergic reactions. With Mellowood® the chance of such a reaction is minimized.
So you can see that while soft socks are important, many more features are important in addition to softness. Fortunately, Mellowood® has all these properties.
Have fun walking!
