If you like to double up on socks when playing sports, you’re not alone; many people do this for extra cushioning and support. Unfortunately, what seems like additional comfort can actually cause you pain. Wearing two pairs of socks can make your shoes too tight, which makes your feet susceptible to blisters and calluses. Also, doubling up on cotton socks actually traps in moisture, which puts you at risk for uncomfortable athlete’s foot.*
Don’t sacrifice your soles by doubling up on socks. Try some synthetic socks, which whisk away moisture; and increase their effectiveness by wearing only one pair at a time.
