@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.

@Allsocks_: This is How to care for your Pantyhose

Due to the fact that hosieries are of a delicate nature, many are hesitant to wash them after every wear. However, it is important to wash them after wearing them, so as to guard against bacteria. When body oil, perspiration plus bacteria get on the hose, they would produce unpleasant smell.

To care for your panty hose, you could gently wash with soap or little un-harsh detergent. They can also be washed in the washing machine then they can be sun dried.

Another smart way to clean pantyhose is by using the Hosiery Mate Pantyhose Wash Solution. Apart that the Hosiery Mate Pantyhose Wash Solution cleans, it also conditions, deodorizes, and doubles the lifespan of hosiery.

It is also important to note that washing pantyhose plays a vital role in making them last. It is advisable to wash pantyhose immediately after wearing them rather than pile them up and wash them with other several pairs. This helps to prolong the lifestyle of the pantyhose.

How long your pantyhose lasts largely depend on how you wear, handle, and wash them.

@Allsocks_: Is Wearing Socks and Sandals Now Becoming Trendy?

Would you or have you ever tried wearing socks on sandal before? Do you think it’s a nice idea? We understand that just the thought of wearing socks with sandals makes some people feel highly uncomfortable. Does it mean that wearing socks on Sandal is only fashionable on fashion magazines and not in real life?

Some fashion experts are of the opinion that it might be doable to rock socks with sandals, but socks with contrast toes will never work with sandals. Some feel wearing socks on sandal is just something you do while lazing around in the house and that should be all about it.

A stylist once said that the secret to making it work is to make sure some skin was visible between bottom of the pants & sock’s top; else it looks like one is in pajamas.

Many consider the peep toe heel sandal as the hardest shoe to style, simply because of the possibility of a pouf of sock sticking out of the front. To solve the peep toe heel socks dilemma, the best way to style them is with a very, very thin sock. Men’s trouser socks actually works best.

Some fashion bloggers feels that socks on sandal is worn only by the fashion-challenged. Do you agree? Does this stylists look challenged? LOL

On a fashion blog, a reader said, if it’s hot enough for sandals, it’s too hot to wear socks. If it’s cold enough to wear socks, it’s too cold for sandals. Another blogger feels it’s a terrible fashion choice, a big faux paux to wear socks on sandal, so many different views. Some think it is only a Jewish cultural phenomenon in which the Jewish man or woman wears socks with their sandals.

Socks and Sandals used to be the WORST fashion mistakes ever. Is it now becoming a trend among guys and girls?

@Allsocks_: Long Toenails Are Not Socks Friendly

Does the toe nail affect your socks in any way? As simple as the answer to this question is, it is funny how some guys want to keep their toe nails yet avoid holes in socks. Aesthetically speaking, toenails are available for painting and general beautification of the feet, most especially for ladies.

Save for these stated reasons, toenails can cause so much discomfort when they hit the tip of your shoe each time you wear them. The other day, a customer was asking a question on what can be done to stop his nails from piercing through his socks. But the truth is that eating one’s cake and having it has remained an unresolved puzzle. But on a more serious note, apart from beautification which majorly concerns ladies, why would a guy keep toenails?

Honestly there is no tangible thing the toenail is doing, except to poke holes in your socks and make them wear out fast. So get rid of them! Claw-like toenails don’t even protect you from stubbing your toe. So they are practically of no use.

Long toenails might increase the pains of an ingrown toenail. An ingrown nail is when the sides of a toenail – usually the big toe – curve into and dig into the flesh instead of growing straight out.

Some are born with chronically ingrown toenails, while others are self inflicted. Ingrown toenail is sometimes also caused by either the shoe we wear or the  way nails are being cut. Left untreated, ingrown toenails cause discomfort that can quickly turn into severe pains and infections. Toenail fungus is another infection of the nail, and they can be embarrassing in the sense that they could stop you from rocking your nice socks and shoes.

So it’s a lot better to keep clean nails and proper hygiene always.

 Smart Tips on How to Store and Keep Your Socks Together ~ @allsocks_

Today we would be discussing some nice tips on how to properly store your socks and that of a little baby. This cute and adorable piece of clothing can be easily misplaced when washing, drying or when not properly stored. And it can be annoying when you need to find a matching pair of socks to put on your baby and it is nowhere to be found. Or you discover as a mother that your baby’s socks drawer has more single socks without a mate than pairs of socks.

Even as an adult, it happens more often as student though, that either a left or right leg of your socks keep developing wings or they fly away to unknown destinations. It can be annoying and irritating at the same time when you have set your mind on a particular design and colour to match your outfit and then it can’t be found. When this happen from time to time you suddenly realize that you have a trailer load of single leg socks in your wardrobe.

Anyone who has ever been in this situation knows that pausing to find the mate to a sock, while dressing yourself or a baby, is not the easiest of chores, most especially when you are late for an outing or engagement.

Sincerely it can be pretty hard to prevent the missing socks syndrome like a customer once said. Anyways, there are tips that can be used for storing and keeping baby/adult socks so that they are easy to find and grab.

 

  1. Safety pin matching socks together before they go into the laundry. This way the socks’ mates stay together and can be put directly into the sock drawer safely pinned together.

 

  1. To avoid missing socks pair, fold the socks so that one socks ends up in the other. This will keep pairs of socks together in the socks drawer.

 

  1. Keep your socks together when washing and drying in the washing machine. The truth is that when you are careless about your socks you will spend more time looking for them.

  1. The best thing you can do when you lose a sock is to create an orphanage for lost sock. Just in case you later find the other pair. When you find one solo, just store it in a separate place, hopefully it will be reunited with its lost brother or sister later.

 

  1. Sometimes, socks slips between the drum of the washing machine and the wash basket and then gets trapped in the pump. A major reason why we lose our socks is because they get lost inside the washing machine, but when you pin them together you are good. Pin your socks together before throwing them in the machine, else you risk the possibility of losing them to the washing machine holes.
