Wool Socks

My husband got me started on this. I used to wear regular old white cotton athletic socks for all of my walking. Not anymore.

Now, doesn't matter if it is winter or summer, when I travel I take wool socks with me. Wool socks are great whether I'm doing serious hiking or marching along city streets. They are thick, cushioned and very comfortable. I have several pair of Wigwam brand wool socks that have, literally, been all over the world with me and still look practically new.

In the winter they keep my feet warm and in the summer they do a great job absorbing sweat. And, no, they don't make my feet hot in the summer. They are a lot more comfortable than cotton socks which keep the moisture against my skin.

If you'll be doing any kind of serious walking on your travels, give wool socks a try. Just remember that they are usually thicker than cotton athletic socks so make sure your footwear can accommodate the extra fabric.
