Socks Reduce Foot Fungus and Infections
Though humble in nature, a single pair of socks can dramatically improve a person’s health. Socks help to wick sweat away from the foot, considerably reducing a person’s risk of athlete’s foot. They also provide a barrier between the foot and the shoe, which reduces the potential for blisters and chafing.
Socks Promote Heat Retention
Socks add a layer of insulation, which increases heat retention in the body. A lot of body heat escapes through the feet, and socks can seal in warmth, allowing people to conserve their body heat more efficiently.
The Supply and Demand of Socks
The desirability of socks primarily hinges on basic supply and demand. Everybody needs socks, and a pair of generic socks only lasts a couple of months before they are too soiled or tattered to be useful. Homeless people go through socks at an accelerated rate, due to the increased moisture and dirt they’re exposed to.
