Podiatrist in Woodbridge, VA, Gives Sock Recommendations

podiatrist woodbridge vaCotton socks are the standard go-to sock material for most people. However, not everyone knows that cotton is not the only option—and sometimes, it’s not the best. When a cotton sock gets wet, it doesn’t dry well, bunches up in your shoe, causing blisters and foot problems. If you have any issues like foot pain, blisters, sweaty feet, or fungal toenails, cotton can make your condition worse. Thankfully, there are alternatives for those with these foot conditions! Our podiatrist in Woodbridge, VA, explains this below.

For Foot and Heel Pain

Synthetic material is much better at wicking away moisture and keeping your feet dry. Opt for socks made from materials such as acrylic or Coolmax. There are acrylic socks in every style, from dress socks to sportswear. For foot and heel pain, look for synthetic socks with extra padding around the ball of foot and heel area, as this offers more support and cushioning for the foot. It can also prevent blisters!

For Diabetes

Moisture-wicking compression socks are great for those with diabetes. Additionally, there are socks with antifungal and antibacterial treatments, as well as seamless socks that won’t damage the sensitive skin that some diabetic people have. Ensure that any compression sock or specialty diabetes sock is synthetic and breathes well to prevent foot problems, such as fungus and infection.

For Exercise and Sweaty Feet

There are many sock choices, each recommended for different types of exercise! For running or hiking, socks with padding in the heel and ball of the foot can prevent strain and injury to the foot.

For cycling, there are socks with elastic arch support to prevent bunching over long distances. Additionally, compression socks and thicker, anti-blister socks can be great for athletes. Make sure these are made of moisture-wicking material, so they keep your feet cool and healthy!
