KY PODIATRIST STATES THAT WEARING EXTRA SOCKS CAN BE PROBLEMATIC

DR. SARAH M. VOELKEL, A LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY PODIATRIST STATES, "WEARING TWO PAIRS OF SHOES COULD CONCEIVABLY CHANGE THE WAY YOUR SHOE FITS.  YOU CAN CAUSE BLISTERS OR CALLUSES.... AND, IF YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT WEARING THEM TO PLAY TEAM SPORTS, YOU COULD BE MORE AT RISK OF AN INJURY LIKE AN ANKLE SPRAIN, FRACTURE, OR THOSE TURF TOE TYPE OF INJURIES."

PODIATRIST VOELKEL ALSO STATES, "DOUBLING UP ON SOCKS CAN INCREASE YOU RISK OF ATHLET'S FOOT. SYNTHETIC SOCKS ARE DESIFNED TO WICK MOISTURE AWAY FROM YOUR SKIN, BUT BY DOUBLING UP ON COTTON SOCKS, YOU ARE TRAPPING IN MOISTURE. EITHER WAY, YOU MAY BE SACRIFICING YOUR SOLES FOR THE SAKE OF STYLE."
