What Socks to Wear with Sneakers

It may seem like such a mindless decision, but in a world where we put so much stock in fashion and there is subscription services set up to make sure every one of your drawers is fully loaded, we want to put a little thought into what combinations we put together in order to make the best outfit.

So, when it comes to putting together the perfect outfit with sneakers, you will need to make sure you have the perfect socks to compliment it. Here is a breakdown of making sure your feet are perfectly happy when it comes to throwing on some sneakers.

The perfect material

You may think that any old sock is suitable for throwing on with your sneakers. However, there are some things to keep in mind, such as the material of your socks.

Wool: Casual may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of wool, but this material is perfect for providing cushioning and preventing blisters, all while soaking up sweat and moisture.

Cotton: While cotton is key for a lot of your clothing options, it can retain a lot of moisture, which makes it not so ideal for sticking inside your sneakers.

The right style

With so many sock styles to choose from you would not be wrong to get slightly overwhelmed. If you are wearing your sneakers to perform athletic activities, you will want to make sure you are wearing something along the lines of an ankle sock. However, if you are just dressing up to take a casual stroll, a nice mid-calf sock is perfect for sitting snugly under your jeans and keeping your feet comfortable within your shoes.

Mid-calf socks are also perfect for adding a splash of color and personality to your attire, as they can be as bold as you want while fitting comfortably in your sneakers.
