If you’re a tradie, chances are that you probably own a pair of heavy-duty work boots. And what pairs best with a pair of work boots are some top-of-the-line work socks. When you’re doing tough work, like setting up that new electric fence wire or working on a construction site, wearing tough work boots is an important health and safety strategy. However, when you’re wearing those boots all day, every day, particularly when they’re new, they can really do a number on your feet. Having the right type of work socks can go a long way though and your feet will thank you for it.
Unlike regular socks, work socks are cured with an antibacterial agent that helps fight foot odour, which in turn maintains freshness for long periods of time. Furthermore, outdoor work socks are manufactured using extra durable material meaning that they last longer than your average pair of socks while offering you extra comfort throughout the day.
It may seem like a small thing, but believe it or not, wearing the right kind of work socks can have several benefits. For starters, it can help protect your feet from growing numb. Most people who wear heavy-duty work boots for prolonged periods of time tend to experience numbness and loss of sensation in their toes. This is due to the hard material of the boots and the nature of work which requires you to stand and walk around a lot. The right outdoor work socks can add an additional layer of protection and keep the feeling right to the tips of your toes, allowing you to work better and more safely.
Apart from being great products for improving your foot health, work socks are also very hygienic and can help keep your feet and work boots from smelling bad or having any kind of bacterial build-up. No one wants to deal with stinky feet and you can’t just leave those at work.
Wearing the right type of work boot socks can also assist you in getting other work done. For instance, if you plan on using a post hole digger auger to set up a new fence or plant trees, you may need to walk a lot and stand around all day. In this case, having some warm and comfortable work socks can feel like a cushion around your toes and help you get the job done quicker without having to take frequent breaks for your feet. This is why it is always a great idea to invest in the right type of work boot socks to keep you light on your feet and power through a busy workday.
