Gone are the days when thick was always best in footwear. Nowadays the high-tech fibres allow our feet to stay warmer, dryer and sweeter smelling.

Thermolite, Ultimax and SmartWood, which is fused with synthetic fibres, draw moisture away from the foot. Some socks alos use capillary action to draw moisture up the sock and out of the boot where it can evaporate. To tackle foot odour some manufactureres weave real silver into their socks which is said to cut the risk of athlete's foot and prevent al lround pongyness.

Many socks today can offer improved protection with added padding in vulnerable areas to prevent hot spots and blisters. Other developments include socks shaped for right and left feet to ensure better fit and flex zones that prevent bunching.
