Types of ladies’ socks to have:

Basics first.

Depending on your footwear choices and preferences, here is a handy list for you.

    • Loafer socks: These are no-show socks that keep your office- look neat while making sure your socks do not cause blisters and odor.

    • Ankle socks: Everybody needs a bright pair of ankle socks for a dash of color to match their sneakers or casual shoes.

    • Sports ankle socks: When you are burning those extra calories at the gym, you need firm support for the soles of your feet. Socks help in giving extra cushioning to the arch of your feet.

And, if you get a pair from TalkingSox, your feet will stay dry and odor-free during workouts.

  • Crew socks: A perfectly themed pair of crew socks to match ideally with your minis and midis.

  • Sports crew socks: Heading for a hike or trek? Or are you a cyclist? If yes, make sure your socks can take care of your feet and calves and function as a protective layer between your shoes and feet.

Now, let us come to a particularly important question.

Top fabrics for ladies’ socks:

There are so many occasions we use our socks, but we never gave any thought to the fabric. We wore our casual cotton socks to all events. But that is not how it should be!

Socks are basic styling accessory that helps protect your feet. Besides, socks help you keep your feet healthy. To learn more about healthy feet, read here.

Some of the most common fabrics for socks are:

  • Cotton: Widely used fabric for socks, cotton socks are soft and comfortable to wear. The problem with cotton socks is:

    • Absorb the sweat but do not dry it

    • Causes blisters and infections

    • Causes odor

    • Chemical dye causes risk of infections and triggers allergies

  • Polyester: A synthetic fabric most famous for its durability, polyester socks will make you sweat more than cotton socks and they are bad for the environment.

  • Wool: Best suited for colder regions, they are a brilliant insulator and ensure that our feet stay warm. It absorbs a high amount of moisture but is uncomfortable for summer and takes a lot of maintenance.  

  • Silk: An expensive fabric, mostly used in blends, is smooth and a moisture-absorbing fabric with insulating properties. This fabric can also be worn mostly in winter.

Which is the best fabric to choose?

Some people may say there is no “best” fabric when it comes to socks. But there is.

Bamboo is the best fabric for socks. And here is our list of reasons:

    • Moisture-wicking technology: Bamboo fiber has moisture-wicking capabilities that absorb sweat. The microscopic holes of the bamboo fiber provide ventilation that keeps feet fresh for long hours.

    • Thermoregulatory: Temperature regulation properties of bamboo help maintain the temperature of the feet. They make sure your feet are always in homeostasis.

This property helps make sure your feet remain cool in summer and warm in winter.

  • Anti-blister: Bamboo is a soft fabric, like silk, with a higher thread count. The softness of the fabric helps reduce the chances of blisters and abrasions.

  • Anti-microbial: Bamboo has Bamboo Kun which is a natural anti-microbial bio-agent. It reduces the growth of germs on the feet and helps prevent fungal and bacterial infections.

  • Odor resistant: Sweaty feet and bacteria cause the feet to stink. With bamboo socks, the feet remain dry and sweat-free and thus making your feet odorless.
