In summer, it is easy to trap a lot of sweat on our feet when the day and times we still need to wear socks with our shoes, so it is important to have the best
socks for the hot and humid weather.
The best socks not only keep our feet dry and cool but can also prevent the growth of bacteria and fungi, however, how well they can absorb sweat is determined by the types of material they are made from. If you have sweaty feet, avoid socks that are made from synthetic and cotton. Some Synthetic materials like plastic, nylon and polyester are not very breathable. That will make your feet sweat a lot, especially when it is hot outside. Cotton is natural fiber and very absorbent. It can hold on to moisture produced by sweaty feet, but which becomes a problem because the moisture in the shoes trapped by the material doesn’t evaporate quickly into the air outside of the shoes.
The best socks for sweaty feet usually have the features of breathable and anti-odor, and also of moisture wicking. Moisture wicking is an ability for a liquid or sweat to move through narrow spaces without external forces. This can keep our feet dry by pulling sweat away from your skin, and onto the surface of the fabric then quickly evaporated. Natural fibers like wool (especially Merino wool) and bamboo all are moisture-wicking, breathable, anti-odor, and heat regulating fabric. Some of Synthetic fabrics with the same features are also a great option for people with sweaty feet as they are generally more durable than natural fibers. These fabrics include Acrylic, Polypropylene and Polyethylene. However, thanks to modern Synthetic fabrics moisture wicking technology, some of new and improved fibers can be especially helpful for people with sweating issues as they are more breathable, quick drying and durable. They include certain polyester blends like Coolmax, or completely new types of fibers like Olefin and its specific version, Drymax, which were all specifically designed for sweaty feet. These materials are able to quickly wick moisture away from feet so that they stay dry and healthy. So next time when you are shopping for the right type of socks for your sweaty feet, remember to check carefully the material label. The socks that are labeled “moisture-wicking” are what you really need. You can also ask for custom sock manufactory to make a pair of custom socks with the same feature.
