Summertime can be hard on our feet when we have to wear socks and the heat is high! I hate having hot feet and a number of foot skin conditions can occur when your feet sweat a great deal. When the lovely people from the Sock Shop offered me the chance to try out some of their socks, I jumped at the chance as I knew that they sell bamboo socks.
The sock shop
The sock shop was founded in Britain in 1983 by Sophie Mirman and Richard P. Ross. Over the years they experienced great success and now supply to over 240 countries worldwide. A testament to a company that is doing things right! As you would expect they have a great range of socks to choose from, but they also sell other products such as underwear and hats. Should you chose to make a purchase, you can use the code MumMission10 for 10% off your shopping.
What I got
I chose to have a pair from the ladies bamboo colour burst range. They have some lovely colours, it was difficult to choose, but I decided to go for the raspberry beret. The first thing that I noticed when they arrived was how vibrant the colour was. The second was how super soft they feel! Personally, I have never felt a sock so soft! They have handlinked toes which means that the toes are linked together with a single thread so are basically seamless and there is no lumpy bit in the toes like with other socks. They are really nice comfortable socks and I am really pleased with them.
I also got my husband a pack of men’s bamboo socks in plain black. My husband is an HGV driver for a local skip hire company so he has to wear work boots every day for work, no matter the weather. I was excited to see how he would get on with the bamboo socks as bamboo has a natural antibacterial property that can help to prevent odour. Bamboo is also 3-4 more times absorbent than cotton helping to keep feet healthy and dry in hot weather.
The results were fantastic! Darren said that they were really soft and comfortable and his feet felt much less sweaty at the end of the day! He was a very happy hubby!
