When people think wool socks, they think winter. Did you know that wool socks are also very beneficial to wear in the summer? In fact, they will help keep your feet cool and moisture-free as you go on those long summer walks and runs. At Potomac River Running, we are a huge fan of Smartwool socks. They are made of merino wool and are designed to keep your feet warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This is the perfect sock for walking the dog, going on a run, or exercising at the gym. Read on to learn about how Smartwool socks can help keep you comfortable this summer.
Soft and Comfortable
First and foremost, Smartwool socks are soft and comfortable. Ever had a sock slip down in your shoe while walking or running? Not comfortable! The Smartwool socks have an Achilles tab that helps them stay up and hug your foot for the duration of your exercise. In addition, the socks have virtually seamless toes that help reduce the risk of blisters. The merino wool is soft and comfortable meaning you will want to wear these socks all day long!
When doing any type of exercise is it crucial that you have a non-cotton, moisture-wicking sock. If your sock does not wick the sweat away, it will sit on your foot causing discomfort and potentially blisters. The Smartwool socks are made of merino wool which wicks away the sweat from your feet even on the hottest of summer days.
Did you know that socks can thermoregulate? Smartwool socks have the capability to keep your feet warm when it’s cold out and keep your feet cool when it’s hot out. This is amazing technology! In the summer, the socks quickly transport sweat away from the skin keeping the foot cool and dry.
Hot days and sweaty feet can lead to some not-so-good smells. Fortunately, Smartwool socks are odor-neutralizing. After you get home from a walk or a run, kick off your shoes and relax knowing that your socks are reducing your sweaty feet odor!
Smartwool socks are UPF20+ meaning they protect your feet from the harmful rays of the sun. During the summer, any clothing we can wear that protects us from the sun is great. Don’t forget your sunscreen too!
