Our friend Jen has an interesting and practical fashion hack — she extends the lifespan of her summer shoes even in colder temperatures, by wearing them with the cutest socks ever. Though it’s hard to fathom and accommodate the sock/sandal combo in our minds, it looks terrific! Plus, it is a reasonable thing to do. Wearing shoes without socks during summer is akin to felony! It is a grave injustice to your feet that deserves a sentence. Maybe that’s a bit of a stretch, but sincerely, socks do a world of good to your feet and shoes when the sun is at its shining peak.
They keep your feet healthy and comfortable while ensuring the longevity of your shoes. So, it’s not just about making a fashion statement, although that counts too. Like Jen, you can decide to make this a stylish affair. Additionally, going without socks in summer is an open invitation to smelly feet and a horde of bacteria. When your shoes are dripping with moisture, bacteria take it as a cue to lodge and multiply, which causes an offensive odor in the process. So, it isn’t just enough to wear socks, but good-quality antibacterial socks (if they are cute and trendy, that’s an added bonus).
Socks are also reputed for wicking moisture away and serving as a protective shield for your feet. When moisture collects in our shoes because of excessive heat, socks provide a way out for the unwanted liquid. Without socks, they remain in your shoes and feet, tearing away at the delicate fabric and soles of your shoes and making room for bacterial infestation and odor on your feet. Gross and annoying right? It is only in your best interest that you wear socks during the hot summer days. And we all know how valuable these little cute things are during the colder months. We’ve got more practical summer tips on the blog, so you might want to check them out!
