Socks. Such a simple thing, something we just take for granted. We get up, get dressed and slip those socks onto our feet without really thinking about them.
I wear socks pretty much every day, definitely on workdays and if I need to go out anywhere. As I rarely wear skirts or dresses and trousers are my outfit of choice, it stands to reason that socks are an essential part of my wardrobe.
I admit I do have a thing for novelty socks, I like patterns and bright colours, not a huge fan of plain white socks although I do have some for the right occasion. So I was delighted when Sock Shop sent me some of their bamboo socks to try.
I had never heard of Bamboo socks before but I do know bamboo is a pretty popular material these days given its sustainability.
So I opted to try the LADIES 2 PAIR ELLE BAMBOO ANKLET SOCKS in Pink
and the LADIES 2 PAIR SOCK SHOP PLAIN BAMBOO SOCKS WITH SMOOTH TOE SEAMS in Blue Raspberry
I also noticed that my feet didn't seem to smell as much when I took my trainers off as they can do when I wear regular cotton socks. This was because the bamboo helps feet to breathe more and is also hypoallergenic and contains natural antibacterial properties.
Sock Shop carries a wide range of bamboo socks for everyone, men, women and children as well as many other socks in cotton, wool, cashmere and even Alpaca.
