Sports socks from various companies, including brands like CoolMax, Brooks, and Balega, use a polyester blend (synthetic materials layered with cotton) to pull moisture away from the foot to evaporate sweat and prevent odor. The positive and negative charges on the fibers attract water molecules. “They pull them away from the foot, but those fibers can’t hold the water, so they need an [outer] layer of something that’s absorbent, like cotton or wool,” Cary Zinkin, DPM, podiatric physician and spokesman for the American Podiatric Medical Association says.

“Any time you can pull the moisture away from the foot, you’ll help keep your feet drier and have less odor,” says Zinkin. Odor happens when skin bacteria hangs around a little too long and becomes funky. Drier feet are less slippery, which is good for preventing blisters and other foot wounds. The final word? “Moisture-wicking socks are terrific,” says Zinkin, particularly if you’re active.
