Wool socks remain a staple in many active people's wardrobe. Not only worn for comfort, but also to keep warm, this accessory is worn with shoes to protect one's feet from injury. Most commonly worn when hiking, hikers must wear clothing and accessories that can help them survive if danger arises.
When worn with hiking boots, wool socks can keep the feet secure and warm in cold weather. For added protection from animals or bugs, the pants can be tucked into the socks. Try a pair from Gold Toe ADC. The over the calf fit provides all day comfort. These socks are equipped with FreshTex, which is an antimicrobial system that keeps feet fresh and odor free. The reinforced toe prevents any type of injury from one's shoes from excessive walking.
A comfort fit heel is important and that is what socks made of wool provide. No matter what the activity is, they keep the toe, foot and heel protected. Other accessories that may work well in combination with these socks are scarves. If hiking in cold weather, it's important to cover the neck and mouth to keep warm. A scarf can also double over as a first aid tourniquet if needed.
Another popular piece of clothing to wear with wool socks would be a hat. Whether a basic cap or a knit hat, it protects the scalp from falling tree branches or bugs. Hats also provide protection from the elements such as rain or sun.
When choosing socks, be sure that one's heels, toe and feet are comfortable at all time. Always buy socks in the proper size when using them for active activities. Not only can you bunch the socks to protect up the leg, but it also keeps you warm when wearing them.
