If you're experiencing pain in your feet, your mobility drastically decreases!
The issue is, most people don’t think twice about what type of socks they run, play basketball, football, ski or use for any type of sport and general excercise!
Tube socks or other types of regular socks are the default choice. However, those who skate, ski or run etc in regular socks frequently encounter some type of injury often related to ill-fitting footwear!
Footwear that fits properly contributes to an optimization in foot mechanics, which in turn helps reduce the risk of injury by eliminating poor mechanics that are caused by socks and shoes that don’t fit right!
You can decrease the probability of primary injuries such as shin splints, plantar fascitis, and even problems with the ankles, knees, and hips by using proper footwear! You can also eliminate the risk of injuries that come from extraneous movement and friction such as bursitis, impact injuries, and blisters!
Not Too Big, Not Too Small is the key!
Obviously, shoes that are too big or too small are going to cause issues! Too big allows for loss of traction and power and can lead to both foot and leg injuries! Shoes that are too small can lead to blisters and soreness! It’s imperative you get a shoe that fits the right way, allowing for movement, but not tight enough to pinch or restrict blood flow!
When it comes to socks, the same rules apply! You want an athletic sock that fits you perfectly, molding to the contours of your foot without any excess folds! You also want the sock to be comfortable and not constricting! The benefit of a sock that fits well is that you can prevent a lot of injuries!
