KNOW THY SOCKS
We know how important it is for your feet to be comfortable on the job, all day long. While boots are of the utmost importance to being comfortable, what you put on before you lace them up can have an impact too. Although sometimes just an afterthought, the right performance socks can make all the difference.
There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing the right pair of work socks for the job:
- Material. Merino wool, nature’s best performance fiber, keeps the foot dry and comfortable while achieving durability levels superior to cheaper alternatives.
- Fit. The best way to fit a right and left foot is with a specifically patterned right and left sock. Minimizing excess material on the outside of your foot means a perfect fit every day.
- Seams. Socks with seams on the toe flex zone can result in bunching and chafing on the tops of your toes - the last thing you want to think about during a long shift.
- Support. Work socks with contoured arch support, impact cushioning in key areas, and a proper heel pocket can make all the difference in ensuring you’re comfortable and supported all day long.
Together, these are the small things that make a big difference in your work life, and your everyday life.
