Some people say that socks are a man’s second skin. Wearing the right socks on the right occasion is actually a science.
The most important principle for men to wear socks is to emphasize the overall match. In many cases, the long trousers will directly cover the upper. Only inadvertently can the presence of socks be seen. At this time, its color, texture, and cleanliness will provide a scoring basis for one’s taste.
So, how should men choose socks?
Pure cotton: Pure cotton socks are the best choice for daily wear. 100% cotton is usually not used to make socks for outdoor activities. Cotton absorbs sweat and is not easy to dry. Once the cloth gets wet, it has no temperature insulation and is uncomfortable. It is easy to cause blisters on the feet.
Silk: Men’s silk socks are relatively rare in the market, but their elegant luster and excellent comfort constitute the characteristics of high-end men’s socks. The only fly in the ointment is that the material of silk is not strong enough and wear-resistant.
Hemp: In fact, among all natural materials, hemp has the best air permeability. Hemp has natural antibacterial and antibacterial functions, and has better moisture absorption and perspiration performance than cotton and chemical fiber, so it gives people a “dry” and “cool” feeling. But socks containing more than 55% hemp are still rare in China.
Cashmere: Cashmere is a material that has very good warmth retention. It is breathable and comfortable to wear in winter, but it will be more troublesome to clean and requires a professional wool cleaning agent.
Inner socks: The length of the inner socks is mostly semi-long, the thickness is very thin, and the weight is the lightest. They must be worn on the innermost layer closest to the foot; this type of socks usually has good perspiration and comfort, which can make The feet are always kept dry; suitable size inner socks can give the feet a proper range of motion.
Lightweight socks for outdoor activities: suitable for walking in warm climates, simple hiking or outings, and outdoor activities that require light exercise. These socks are thicker than inner socks, have better warmth retention, and are more durable, and of course have better cushioning functions; but because they are still very thin, they are more suitable for use in warm climate areas. Generally, this kind of socks are made by blending, and they have good support and comfort. They can be worn alone or used with inner socks.
Medium-weight socks for outdoor activities: suitable for use in cold climates, can provide sufficient cushioning and insulation, and protect the feet from the outside temperature. Thickness and warmth are better than lightweight socks. Some brands of socks even thicken the thickness of socks in areas with greater impact, such as the heel and forefoot areas, to improve foot comfort. This type of socks should be worn simultaneously with inner socks.
Hiking socks: Hiking socks have the thickest fabric and the best cushioning. They are designed to meet long-distance travel, cross-country hiking, and various activities in low temperature conditions. Because the thickness is too thick, it is not suitable for use in warm climates and relaxing hiking activities.
