There is nothing worse than being uncomfortable in your clothes or shoes. Any confidence you feel when wearing your favorite dress or slacks goes out the door when you trip over your own two feet because your socks are so dang uncomfortable!
This causes a lot of us to skip the socks altogether and go barefoot when wearing our favorite shoes. We never recommend going commando in the foot department and we are going to give you a few good reasons as to why.
TOP 5 REASONS YOU SHOULD ALWAYS WEAR SOCKS WITH SHOES
1. Socks act as a physical barrier.
Blisters are caused by friction when your shoes are poorly fitted and rubbing up against your skin. Going barefoot when wearing shoes promotes a poorly fitted shoe which will then most likely cause some of that friction. Blisters hurt like heck and can really put a cramp in your step.
4. Stinky Feet
You don’t want to be that person who needs to hide when taking their shoes off because the smell is so unpleasant. Wearing no socks promotes sweat to hang around longer than we’d like since we don’t have socks to absorb any of it. It’s the bacteria in our sweat that causes the unpleasant odor in our shoes. Plus, our feet are two of the sweatiest parts of our body.
5. Temperature and Moisture Control
Do you always get really sweaty feet or always have cold toes? Socks can act as a control for both temperature and moisture. This can help minimize sweat and breeding of bacteria which leaves you with fresh happy and dry feet.
There are many more important reasons why it’s never a good idea to go commando when it comes to our feet. Beyond the not-so-pretty stuff like blisters and infections, socks are a fun way to express your personality and bring any outfit to the next level.
