Wet, sweaty feet got you down? Don't worry, everyone deals with perspiration, whether it happens when you're exercising or when you're nervous. No one likes to be sweaty, and sweaty feet is one thing we especially can't stand. We've got you (and your feet) covered! Here’s the lowdown on moisture wicking socks.
Regardless of what causes your body to heat up, sweating is its way of cooling itself down. So where does all that sweat and grime go? It depends on what you're wearing.
The best fabrics to help control sweat and moisture are merino wool, polyester, coolmax, olefin and drymax. These fabrics are commonly used in workout clothing, sportswear, and socks! They pull moisture away from the body to the exterior of the garment. This allows the sweat to easily evaporate because it's no longer trapped between the garment and the skin, keeping you dry, cool, and comfortable in the long run.
Moisture-wicking socks are specifically designed to eliminate the griminess and wick sweat and moisture away from your feet. We’ve rounded up the best moisture-wicking socks so you can keep your feet dry and comfortable.
