When you're on your feet all day long you know that having the right boots is everything, but have you considered the difference a quality pair of socks can make? Not only can a good pair of socks add cushioning to a rugged pair of boots, but moisture control socks are designed to keep your feet from sweating as much!

Socks may seem to only be a minor form of safety protection, but a pair of good socks can make a difference between a good and miserable work day. Socks can be cushioning to be pair of boots and some can even reduce sweating. However, the material of the sock is important. If your feet tend to be cold, wool fiber is a better material, as it absorbs moisture and passes it to the outside. If your feet tend to be hot and sweaty, a moisture control sock made from synthetic fibers. For certain health conditions, like diabetes and allergies, the material is also important. Diabetics should look for socks made from a dense material but ones that have low friction and do not restrict circulation in the legs. Those with allergies should look for socks made with very fine wool or a lambís wool.
