Socks go way beyond just a fashion accessory. They’re your feet’s supporters, giving you comfort, health benefits, and of course, good looks.

These Are 9 Reasons Why You Need a Good Pair of Summer Socks

Socks during summer? YES! It’s a thing—but we’re not just saying that. Doctors not only approve but encourage the use of the right socks in the summertime. Why? Well, here’s a small list of the many reasons you should wear socks—even when it’s warm. 

1. With the Right Socks, You Can Keep Your Feet Fresh

During the hottest months of the year, it might seem like more layers make the heat unbearable. But that’s actually false. Breathable, natural-fabric socks help your feet stay dry by wicking moisture away from your feet and into the air.  

 SilverSpun®, socks happen to be a staple for fresh feet…even in the summer. Silver is a temperature regulator—meaning your feet won’t overheat— avoiding sweat, bacteria, and funky smells.

2. The No Blister Experience 

You know the feeling… you’re walking around, enjoying the warm weather when you start to notice something… blisters. The most painful part of skipping socks! 

 Blisters can ruin anyone's day—especially if you’re on vacation or at work. Luckily, socks are a quick, easy way to prevent blisters from bothering you. Wearing socks prevents friction between your shoe and skin, keeping your skin from breaking out in blisters. 

 If you’re risking it, always keep a pair of SilverSpun® socks nearby. If blisters happen, put your socks on—silver is antibacterial and microbial, protecting your feet from infection. 

3. Sockless Shoe = Stinky Feet 🦨

Wearing socks helps to wick moisture away and keep your feet dry—which leads to better-smelling feet. And SilverSpun® socks are especially good at that. Silver’s antibacterial properties kill odor-causing bacteria, which keep your feet stink-free and fresh. All summer long. 

4. Socks and Sandals ARE fashionable

Vogue agrees with us that pairing your cute sandals with equally good-looking socks looks great. It gives your outfit a style boost while also making your sandals more comfortable to walk  in. 

 Celebrities and people from all walks of life are tapping into this trend. Plus, if you haven’t been able to give your feet a proper pedicure, socks will help you keep it a secret. Shhh. 💅🏽

5. City Gal? Socks Keep Your Feet Clean (and fresh) 

If you live in a city and you’re often walking around, jumping in and out of public transport, and visiting public places—you’ll love the summer sock trend. Not only is wearing socks more comfortable for your feet when walking a lot, but they also keep your feet clean. 

Wearing socks protects your feet from all the dust, dirt, and pollution that’s usually present in cities. Next time you go out without socks, notice how dirty your feet are afterward. Socks make a huge difference!  

6. No Weird Sun Tan on Your Feet 

We’ve all been there—after showing off your favorite sandals, your feet have that uneven tan and it might even hurt from the sunburn. Plus, many people forget that your feet need sunscreen too! 

Luckily, simply wearing socks it’s a layer of protection against harmful UV Rays on your skin. And can help even out the funny sandal tan you might have going on. 

7. Wearing Socks Every Day Keep Calluses Away 

If your feet are prone to calluses—the right pair of socks can help. A good pair of socks prevents chafing and friction that leads to cracked heels and dry skin. And sandals + high heels are one of the most common causes of calluses on your feet.

8. Shorts and Crew Socks are a Thing
