Best Socks for Sweaty Feet - Workout Edition
Are you prone to getting sweaty feet while you’re working out? You’re not the only one, which is why we compiled this list of the best socks for sweaty feet, so your feet can stay dry while you’re getting your reps in. Keep reading to learn more and see our top picks!
Why do you need different workout socks for sweaty feet?
Well first of all, nobody likes wet socks, but sweaty socks can cause blisters, bacteria build-up, and odor. We recommend socks that are made with synthetic material blends like polyester and nylon, or natural blends made with Merino wool, because they are going to be more breathable than your average pair of cotton socks. You also want workout socks made with moisture-wicking fabrics, mesh panels for breathability, and anti-odor and anti-microbial materials. These materials and features are going to make sure your feet stay dry, comfortable, and odor-free during the toughest workouts.
