Nylon ankle socks to prevent blisters

nylon ankle socks to prevent blistersDo we like the nylon ankle socks? Yes and no. Usually they don’t really materialise the top of the fashion design – they are a rather humble piece of clothing that are supposed to remain unnoticed.

Now we’ve found a more noble task for all nylon ankle socks (and to nylon socks as well): preventing blisters.

Foot blisters and other skin damages might happen if you’re running, hiking, dancing, or just using your feet for a long time because the skin chafes against your socks and/or shoes. (If you’ve been a conscript in the army of a less developed country, supplied with old fashioned leather military boots, you surely know what I’m talking about.)

All you have to do is to wear a pair of nylon ankle sock / nylon sock under your socks. Alternatively, you might cut off the feet of a pair of pantyhose and use them. It’s US military tested!!! So it must work for both women and men.

Also, you can wear them for a couple of days when breaking in new shoes for less blisters/pain.

Buy them at the next corner general store – look for a small and humble box among hosiery or around the cashier’s desk.
