Happy Veterans Day! Socks Addict thanks you for your service! When it comes down to comfort, your socks are just as important as your boots, especially if you’re in the military. Make sure your feet stay happy and healthy with a good pair of high-quality socks to match your military-grade boots! Here’s everything you need to know about how to choose a sock for your military boots.
You’re going to want your socks to act as a layer of protection between your feet and your boots. This will reduce the risk of getting blisters by absorbing and wicking away the sweat, dirt, and oils from your feet so you can keep clean and dry.
A good pair of high-quality socks made of breathable, moisture-wicking fabrics like Merino wool and other synthetic fibers is widely sought after. These fibers will not only work to keep your feet dry and comfortable, but they are also naturally antimicrobial, which means they keep unwanted odors at bay, something you should definitely look for if you’re spending long periods of time in your boots. Merino wool can also keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer so you can wear the socks whenever you need them.
Pro Tip: If possible, we recommend to buy a few pairs of socks with varying thickness, especially if you’re deployed in an area with drastic temperature changes.
One of our brands, Thorlos, is actually one of the largest sock manufacturers to make high-quality socks specifically for military service!
