Why do Socks matter when under activity?
During athletic activity, perspiration output on the feet can exceed to almost 500ml on one foot. When wearing socks that are made of certain fibres that soak up the moisture, these can create problems like blisters and hot spots. Therefore, to minimise moisture accumulation, socks made from moisture wicking materials can help prevent such from occurring.
Sure these socks may not give you superhuman abilities but they will definitely ensure you have a comfortable experience when under physical activity. So think twice before opting for the cheaper alternative!
