Socks are clothes for the feet, so it is impossible to do without them, especially the male half of the population. Like any other clothing, they can be comfortable, but can create a feeling of discomfort. The ideal material is one that does not allow your feet to freeze in the winter and absorbs moisture well in the summer without contributing to excessive sweating. Of course, everyone remembers grandmother's knitting with knitting needles. Socks, scarves, booties, mittens and much more were made by her hands. But modern technologies have moved far ahead, new materials have appeared that can become a worthy substitute for manual creativity.
The composition of the material is the first thing you should pay attention to when choosing socks. Among the components can be wool, synthetics, bamboo thread, mercerized cotton. The last two are the best materials for making hosiery stockings. More and more popular are silicone socks, because they have a number of special cosmetic properties.
Socks made of bamboo are considered very high quality products. This is due to the naturalness of the material used, which provides an ideal microclimate for the feet. Socks made of this material are good in winter and in frost, and in summer in hot weather. Technologists prefer to mix bamboo with ten percent of synthetics (nylon), which prevents rapid abrasion, which means they will last much longer.
By its qualities is not inferior to bamboo thread and mercerized cotton. Strength and durability are the main properties of the material. Black, colored, white socks can be made from 100% natural material without the addition of synthetics. Even despite this fact, they will look like new after a lot of washing. At the same time, 100% naturalness of the material creates the most comfortable feeling for the feet.
Especially it is worth noting - the use of these two materials involves forgetting what knitting is. Socks made of bamboo and mercerized cotton belong to premium clothing. Such socks are quite expensive, so only well-off people can buy and can.
Multicolored, black, white socks of business class produce from cheaper material. Most often it is cotton with the addition of polyamide in a ratio of 4: 1, respectively. This ratio of natural and artificial materials makes socks very pleasant for the feet, and the introduction of synthetics helps to maintain the shape and color in the process of abrasion and cleaning.
The socks of the standard class are characterized by the most optimal combination of the concepts "price-quality". As a synthetic thread, added to natural cotton, not nylon, but polyamide and lycra, is used. This composition gives the skin the ability to "breathe", and also promotes a good fit of the foot. Synthetic additive is introduced to ensure that socks have served as long as possible.
Silicone socks - appeared on the modern market relatively recently. In fact, very few people have heard of them. They are used for cosmetic purposes by people who have problems with the skin of the feet and heels. In addition, they are useful to wear at night and during rest.
Fight with cracks, wound and cuts you can. This allows you to make silicone socks. In addition to this beneficial effect, they are also used as an antibacterial agent. The most beneficial effect is observed when a cream for feet is used together and wearing socks made from such material.
It's no secret that silicone socks, socks made of wool, cotton and other materials are used by men all the time, so they require a large number of pairs in the wardrobe. Abrasion and wear are serious problems that must be faced. It is to prolong the service life and add synthetic material. However, this additive should not be excessive, since to the excess of the artificial material the skin of the legs is very sensitive.
Thus, choosing socks, evaluate their quality not only for price, but also for the ratio of artificial and natural materials.
