Talking Sox loves adventure. The one thing you must have on an adventure is a good partner. Our feet have taken us on and through all our escapades thus far. So, taking care of them becomes our topmost responsibility. Here's how we do it.
Regular care is the best way to maintain foot health and improve function. Keeping them clean and dry is the place to start. Feet tend to sweat. This makes them an ideal environment for germs. The last thing you need on an adventure is an infection. That's why we use bamboo socks. Moisture-wicking is one of the superpowers of bamboo fibre. This means they release the trapped moisture twice as fast and keep the feet fresh and dry for a long period of time. As a bonus, bamboo socks adapt to the seasons. They keep your feet warm in winter and cool in summer.
Can a synthetic fibre ever dream of being this smart?
Yes, they do. Here are a few situations where bamboo socks come in handy. One, get rid of problems arising from excessive sweating such as foot odour. This is not usually a medical condition but it can cause self-consciousness. Switch to bamboo. It absorbs sweat, wicks the moisture away and acts as a natural deodoriser.
Pro tip: Use a fresh pair of socks daily to do away with any lingering odours. Stock up on your sock drawer with our packs of 3.
Two, blisters. Prepared to go the distance, but a little blister threw you off schedule. Who hasn't heard this story? Ill-fitting shoes are the usual suspect. But, socks are also to blame. Thin socks without moisture-wicking properties increase the chances of blistering. Thickness matters! For endurance training, trekking and running, thick socks work best.
Here is the Talking Sox range of thick bamboo socks. Our socks are pre-shrunk for the best possible fit. Find your size today.
Moisture absorption: Bamboo socks absorb more sweat than other fibres. The hollow structure creates natural ventilation.
Freshness: Bamboo fibre is a natural deodorizer.
Anti-microbial: Bamboo socks reduce bacterial and fungal attacks on the skin and nails. Bamboo fibre has bamboo Kun which is an anti-microbial bioagent. It is the same quality that gives the plant resistance to pests and germs. Bamboo Kun is both an antifungal and antibacterial agent.
Temperature regulation: Bamboo socks have temperature-regulating properties.
Sustainability: Bamboo socks are organic and serve the soil it grows on. It grows faster than other plants and is pest resistant.
