@Allsocks_: Challenges that come with Not Wearing Socks

It’s a choice to wear or not wear socks. It’s also a choice to accept the problems that come with not wearing them.

Wearing socks helps to keep the feet and body warm. Socks helps to keep the feet clean as they don’t have to contact your shoe’s interior. Socks helps to keep your feet warm, preserve your shoes, and ensure that they don’t produce offensive odour that can be quite embarrassing.

Let’s examine white sneakers for example; wearing sneakers without socks rots your shoes from the inside. One would easily agree that keeping the outer part of the sneakers clean can actually be a tough struggle, and then imagine how terrible it gets when you’re sweating through the inside. Keeping the inner part of your sneakers clean can be tougher most especially when you don’t wear socks.

Some say their feet looks better in their pair of sneakers when they go socks-less. However, for several reasons like previously mentioned, it will always be a bad idea to wear sneakers without socks, ‘cos no matter how you try, or how much Febreze you spray on them, your sneakers will stink when you don’t wear socks…so save the world of some offensive odour.

Also, when you wear sneakers for such a long time without wearing socks, the cushions on the inside will absorb all of the moisture from your sweaty feet, creating the odour.

When you wear sneakers without socks, they’ll change colour pretty fast, that’s why you suddenly realize that the inner part of your sneakers begins to change from white to brown or grey. On the other hand, this might also be due to regular wear and tear.

In conclusion, the point is that the combination of sweat, moisture, and the lack of ventilation doesn’t help your shoes, especially sneakers.
