Why You Need To Make The Change To Bamboo Socks

Posted by

What can we say? We’re bamboo sock converts. We may be a little bit biased because we live, sleep and breath bamboo here at Bamboo Village HQ, but we really can’t shout it from the rooftops enough…bamboo socks are simply the best. If you haven’t tried them, they really are a must have. You’ll quickly find that your current socks are swiftly discarded and replaced by bamboo! Why are they so good? Read on.

They are exceptionally comfortable & are great for skin conditions - A daily treat for your feet, you'll never want to take them off. They are snug and just oh-so delightful, and are incredibility soft to touch. They also don’t irritate the skin, making them perfect for people who suffer from skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. The natural bamboo fibres are really gentle on the skin, making them ideal for those with allergies too such as to wool or man-made fibres such as nylon.

They get rid of smelly feet – In bamboo socks, your feet stay fresh due to the naturally anti-bacterial bamboo fibre that reduces the bacteria that causes foot odour. For anyone who suffers from smelly feet, this can be a huge weight off your mind. If a sock can dispel the smells, we’re all for it.

They help you stay dry - Eww, don’t you just hate that wet foot feeling? Maybe they’ve got a little bit sweaty from a fast walk, or a workout where you really threw everything you had in to it. It's not nice. In bamboo socks, the highly absorbent bamboo fibre keeps sweat away from the skin, making sure that feet remain dry and comfortable, even if it is rain or shine. When socks do this, they’re a bit of a gamechanger.

They provide comfort all year long – Isn’t it the worst when you get super warm and your feet feel balmy, but it isn’t really the ideal time to take your socks off (a meeting, perhaps)? Or when winter comes, your feet are so chilly that you debate putting on five pairs just to keep your little toes from turning to icicles? Bamboo socks are here to the rescue. As they are thermo-regulating, they will keep your feet warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Hurrah!

Bamboo is so good for the environment – The bamboo fabric that your socks are made from is just so good. Bamboo takes in nearly 5 times the amount of greenhouse gases, and produces 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees. In addition, bamboo helps alleviate water and soil pollution due to its nitrogen consumption and so reduces erosion. Once harvested too, bamboo can replenish itself within a year, making it renewable and 100% biodegradable. Yes, yes, yes.
