start exploring

 Without socks to absorb perspiration, moisture builds up in your shoes, fostering the growth of bacteria. This may result in foul foot odor.

1. Increased Foot Odor

Lack of hosiery can increase friction between bare feet and shoes, increasing the risk of blisters and chafing.

2. Risk of Blisters and Chafing

Fungi flourish in warm, moist environments, and wearing shoes without socks creates the ideal breeding ground for them.

3. Increased Risk of Fungal Infections

Without hosiery, sweat and oils from your feet can penetrate your shoes and cause damage. This can cause shoe materials to degrade over time

4. Shoe Damage

Socks provide an additional layer of cushioning and support, enhancing comfort and reducing the impact.

5. Reduced Cushioning and Support

When worn without insoles, some shoes, particularly those made of certain materials or with rough interior surfaces, can increase discomfort. 

6. Increased Discomfort

Shoes worn without socks can collect sweat and oils from your feet, making them harder to clean.

7. Difficulty Maintaining Shoe Hygiene
