Sock it to the wacky weather this summer

With the weather set to jump between highs of 100°F and torrential downpours this summer, you’re going to have to be on your toes when it comes to making sure your feet are prepared for anything thrown their way.

Carnation Footcare Silversocks are made with silver-coated fibres that act as a natural heat thermostat. Silver has the highest thermal conductivity of any metal and therefore helps to regulate the foot’s temperature, whatever the weather. The silver will not wash off, wear off or diminish in effectiveness over time so it will continue to keep your feet cool when it’s hot and warm when there’s an impromptu downpour…

When the weather’s at its sunny best, high temperatures can cause feet to sweat and smell but Silversocks allow for a greater amount of moisture to evaporate than ordinary socks, creating a drier foot environment.

Dave Wain, podiatrist at Carnation Footcare, says, “The feet contain approximately 250,000 sweat glands that excrete as much as half a pint of moisture a day.

“Moisture around the foot and the resultant odour can cause discomfort, especially when rushing around in hot weather and then sitting in close proximity to others. However, Carnation Silversocks help feet feel cool and fresh, and 99.9% of odour-causing bacteria is eliminated within one hour.”

The anti-microbial properties of Silversocks mean that over 400 types of odour-causing bacteria are erradicated and the remaining odour-causing elements cling naturally to the silver and are neutralised, instantly reducing smell.

So, with a forecast that can’t make up its mind this summer at least you can put your best foot forward at all times… just make sure you don’t forget your umbrella.

Carnation Silversocks retail at £5.99 including VAT and are available from our website


Note: Diabetics and those worried about their feet should always take advice from their pharmacist, GP, or chiropodist.
