“The U.S. Army is especially interested in socks. Troops suffer horrendous blister problems from their months of marching and training in boots. In recent years, the problem got so bad that the army commissioned studies comparing their traditional cotton/wool socks with acrylic and CoolMax socks. The results showed such a reduction in blisters from the synthetic socks that the army has now switched.”
I’ve always considered quality socks a good gift. For others… I tend to go cheap with my socks and shoes. My husband has preached the gospel of good shoes for years. I’m ready to begin my repentance with socks.
Were you surprised to see that synthetic beat cotton and wool in the above paragraph?
I’m very curious now and eager to learn more about socks.
