3 Benefits Of Moisture-Wicking Socks That Will Make Your Summer Adventures More Enjoyable
July 06, 20212 min read
With warmer days come more opportunities for outdoor adventures. As temperatures rise, those adventures can also become more sweaty - and sometimes even uncomfortable. Luckily, you can improve your comfort on the trail by upgrading your socks to ones that wick moisture away from your feet. Explore the benefits of moisture wicking technology below and then try high-performance socks the next time you venture out in the heat!
1. Blister Prevention
A common problem with standard socks is the occurrence of sores, hot spots, and even blisters. This type of discomfort is caused by excess moisture plus friction on the skin, and it can ruin even the most stunning summit views. Prevent this painful condition with moisture-wicking fibers found in performance socks. These fibers will wick the sweat and condensation away from your feet, preventing the wet and warm environment that blisters love. Remember, moisture-wicking socks stop blisters before they start!
2. Temperature Regulation
Anyone who has hiked, biked, or ran in hot weather knows that feet can get really hot. Because the wicking nature of our socks removes moisture from the surface of the skin, it allows the sweat to evaporate quickly, cooling your feet down in the process. Breathability is key when it comes to hot-weather gear, and our socks are designed with channels and fabrics that cool you down during your hottest workouts.
3. Odor Reduction
Lastly, moisture-wicking socks can help prevent the sock and shoe stink that commonly arises in summer months. Because standard socks allow your sweat to pool in your sock and shoe, bacteria thrives and foul odors can develop. Prevent having to store your running shoes outside all summer by wearing socks designed to wick moisture away from your skin and let your feet breathe fresh air. Everyone else on the trail will thank you.
Moisture-wicking socks can save your summer adventures from becoming summer bummers. Try a pair for yourself and feel the difference moisture-wicking fabrics really make!
