1. What Makes A Great Dress Sock?

    Socks matter!

    If you are someone who has to dress up for work on  a daily basis, you have probably had it with trying so many different socks that didn’t end up working out. Orange Beld understands that you want to wear bold socks without having to worry about a thing. Your worrying could include feet odor after along day and obsessive sweating that leaves you uncomfortable that eventually ruins your nice dress shoes.

    So, what makes a great dress sock?

    To find a great dress sock, you should make sure that the socks you choose have four features; wicking, padding, and a snug and slim fit.

    Sock wicking is something that every sock should have, and if it doesn’t have it, don’t buy it! Wicking will “wick” the moisture away from the foot to the sock’s exterior surface. If you don’t have a sock that wicks away sweat, you could be left with blisters, smelly feet and, in the long run, ruined shoes.

    Sock padding is important because it’ll help you stay comfortable all day long, especially if you walk to and from meetings all day. The bold sock that you choose should cushion your foot when it comes in contact with the hard ground. This barrier of padding also helps to protect the skin on your foot from rubbing against the inside of your shoes, preventing painful blisters.

    Snug sock fit is ultra important. Have you ever had the experience of wearing socks that loosen and then bunch up while you walk around all day? Not only is it annoying, but it is also uncomfortable. A sock that does this can cause blisters where the sock bunches up. A great designer sock should always fit snuggly from toe to top.

    Slim sock fit is important if you wear dress shoes. Dress shoes are slim and tend to fit snuggly, which means you need a sock that does the same. A slim sock fit is important because not only will it permit comfort, but it will help to avoid bulking material around your ankle, which distorts the trouser cuff on your pants.

    Sock color has always been important, but it hasn’t been looked at as something that makes a great dress sock until recently. In the past, many men would only wear black, brown, or blue socks. Only recently have they started to branch out by wearing mismatched socks and socks with great design and color. Although socks should still be appropriate for work, you should always throw a little bit of your own flare into the socks that you wear daily.

    In the end, shop bold.

    We hope that the above information has been enough for you to realize that you need to upgrade your dress socks with the bold socks from Orange beld.
