Most people wear socks for a variety of reasons.
They protect the foot from the sun, keep the soles warm, and keep you warm during a cold winter, when socks are worn too tightly.
But there’s a different reason you might want to consider wearing socks indoors.
“If you’re outdoors, socks can be your best friend for warmth,” says Dr. Elizabeth Bressler, an orthopedic surgeon and associate professor at New York University’s School of Medicine.
“Socks are great for keeping your feet warm when you are outdoors.
They can help protect your feet from the cold.”
The benefits of socks vs. sneakers While there are a variety, the main reason people choose to wear socks indoors is because they can help keep them cool.
“They keep your feet cool when you’re walking, and they keep you cool when walking in the snow or in the rain,” says Bressling.
While walking indoors can be a bit tricky, Bresslers experts recommend that you wear socks at least once a week, especially if you’re using the treadmill, elliptical machine, or walking stick.
They also recommend that people get a new pair every month, even if they’re wearing a pair that was worn before.
“Even if you have worn your old socks, the new ones are more durable and will last longer,” says Landon Ehrlich, director of the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Program at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
“You might get a few bumps in the road, but you’re going to get through them.”
A better way to stay cool while walking The cold air can cause your feet to become sore, so wearing socks can help prevent it.
And the soled socks can also help to keep your skin from getting too warm.
While most of us don’t need to worry about getting cold feet in the winter, some people do, says Bessler.
“I think people are more likely to wear these shoes if they are not using a treadmill, a stair shoe, or a walking stick.”
This is because the sole sock can keep your toes from getting cold, and it’s also a great way to keep the heel of the shoe from rubbing the skin, she says.
“This is also good for people who are walking on uneven surfaces.
If you walk on uneven terrain, your soles will start to get cold, especially the heel.”
She recommends that people wear a sock that is at least 2 inches longer than their feet.
When it comes to wearing socks outdoors, it’s important to get the right pair of socks, says Ehrich.
“It’s very important that you keep a sock with the right toe on the outside of the sock and the wrong toe on top,” he says.
You can buy socks online, but it’s best to use a reputable source.
Bresslings recommendations on how to wear a pair of soled shoes indoors can help you stay warm.
To wear socks, wear them in the same place you would wear them outdoors, like your shoes.
“The socks should be a snug fit around your feet, but not too tight,” says Ebrich.
The socks should also be snug but not loose, and the soling should be long enough that it doesn’t interfere with your shoe’s arch.
“For the best traction, socks should not have any extra padding,” says Darlene Cone, an assistant professor of orthopedics and podiatry at the University of California, San Francisco.
“Also, the solenoid in the foot pad should not protrude out of the solerum, and should be snug,” she adds.
“These are some tips that will keep your socks warm when outdoors, and I think you will be pleasantly surprised by how much of an improvement they make.”
