sock of the month Club: 8 Fun and Useless Facts About Socks

What’s the most useless thing in the world? To most people, the answer would be a sock.

Read on to learn eight fun and useless facts about socks you never knew before!

1) How do we choose our socks


We want to show you how we choose our socks, and highlight a few items that we may have overlooked. So, what are these 13 random facts about socks?
1) For most men, their sock size is between 10-14. 2) Men's dress socks come in all different colors, from simple black to crazy color dress socks. 3) crazy color dress socks are also perfect for Halloween costumes! 4) We're big fans of ankle socks here at Knit Picks. 5) There are different types of crew sock styles too, such as ribbed or cuff to help keep them up better. 6) Our collection includes knee highs for winter time and even more summery options like anklet length.

2) What happens when your sock gets wet


Wet socks are a common problem, especially for people who spend time outdoors. The moisture from sweat or rain could cause your socks to feel damp, which can lead to blisters on your feet if you have sensitive skin. Wet socks also carry more bacteria than dry ones, so it's important to change them as soon as possible. If you're not wearing clean socks, try using baby powder or foot powder on your feet before putting on a new sock--it will absorb any sweat left in your sock and help keep moisture away from your skin. You should also avoid wearing shoes with tight-fitting toes (like sneakers) after a long run because this can create excess heat and moisture that may lead to blisters or other problems.

3) Do we really wear 80% of our clothes 20% of the time


We wear 80% of our clothes 20% of the time. The reason is that we use 20% of our clothes 80% of the time. This blog post will give you some advice on how to get more bang for your buck, because socks can be a great place to start!
The first thing to consider is whether you want fun socks or dress socks. If you want colorful socks, then I recommend starting with a sock subscription service like The Sock Drawer. They have mens socks in lots of cool colors, patterns, and styles.

4) Do we really wear shoes 24 hours a day?


Mens socks are now available in all sorts of colors. The colors give you more freedom to express your personality. You can also find fun socks for men that will brighten up any outfit. There are many different styles as well, like crew socks or ankle socks. Although you wear shoes 24 hours a day, there is still a chance to express your true style through your clothing and your footwear!

5) Why do we wear more socks in winter than summer?


For one, winter tends to be a colder time of year. In order to prevent their feet from getting cold, people will often wear more socks in winter than they would in summer. In addition, some people prefer wearing shoes with socks inside them rather than shoes without socks. Finally, some people think that wearing more socks can help protect their feet from blisters or chafing.

6) Why do feet smell so much?


The reason for smelly feet is due to bacteria which breaks down sweat, dead skin cells, and other bodily fluids. Some people have more bacteria on their feet than others, which can lead to stronger smelling feet.
It's best to avoid wearing shoes that are too tight or don't allow your feet to breathe. Make sure you wash your feet at least once a day with soap or body wash and dry them thoroughly, as well. Lastly, if you've been working out or running in the same shoes all day without changing socks, it might be time for a fresh pair!

7) Do only women have that weird seam on their foot?


At first, I thought it was just me. I thought that there was something wrong with my feet. But then I realized that the problem was in my socks! I learned that those little seams on women's dress socks are designed to make your foot look more dainty. And they are supposed to stay hidden under your shoes, but they can sometimes be seen when you're wearing sandals or flip-flops. These days, some brands are making fun designs for colorful socks with no seam at all!

Cut a hole in a knee-high sock to make an easy, quick wreath for your front door for Christmas or other winter holidays! 4. Take an old, unwanted sweater and turn it into cute pajamas by cutting armholes into the sleeves and sewing the ends up securely. 5.
