Did you know that each foot contains 250,000 sweat glands?
And to top it off - the average human foot sweats one cup a day! (PS - this doesn't include running!)
That's a lot of sweat down there.
At Fleet Feet, we have a saying we use a lot..."Cotton is Rotten." And it's true! Imagine running in the summer heat, and sweating a cup in your running shoes. Cotton soaks up sweat like a bath towel, and then holds on to it while you run. In cotton, not only are you more prone to blisters, your feet also get hot and soggy!
Staff Pick - Ultra Light "Second Skin."
One of our favorites at Fleet Feet is the Balega Ultra Light "Second Skin." This sock has a cushioned heel and toe for comfort and durability, yet you barely know it's there.
It also has an elastic grip on the arch and heel - meaning it stays in place and always feels great.
And of course - it's made from a high thread-count, non-cotton moisture-wicking blend!
Check it out the next time you're in the store to keep your feet dry, comfortable, and blister-free!
