The socks can make or break a pair of shoes. Most of the impact of walking or running is absorbed by a layer of fat in your heels. If you spend a lot of time on your feet, your heels might need some extra help.
You can use shoe inserts, but a soft pair of socks can add some shock absorption as well. As you age, that fat layer gets thinner, so cushy socks become even more important. Also, socks act as a barrier between your feet and your shoes, reducing blisters and calluses.
Socks also play a vital role in absorbing and drawing moisture away from your feet. For basic day-to-day wear, use socks made with natural fibres like wool. They're absorbent and will eventually wick moisture away from your feet to the breathable portion of your shoes. For high-performance socks, there are synthetic materials made for athletes that are better at wicking moisture away because the materials don't compress as much as natural fibres do when saturated with sweat.
So it would stand to argue that socks should do more than just cover the foot with a bit of cotton or polyester. This is where patented technology by Wrightsocks has your foot wrapped in comfort. The double layering of fabrics works by counteracting any friction that can build up in those blister-sensitive areas of the foot.
If you think that two-layered socks sound like a hot and sweaty foot mess, think again. Wrightsocks use highly breathable materials, for their inner and outer layers to adjust to any climate. Wrightsocks are a dual-layered sock specifically designed to prevent blisters and provide cushioning.
