Loafers are a staple in the workplace for many occasions, they are on the formal side which pairs well with a suit and smart wear. They even look better on casual days out or on holidays. But the real question is do you wear socks with loafers?
We will mention the benefits of pairing socks with loafers and how to style them correctly.
Benefits of wearing socks with loafers
Socks provide important benefits for your feet. One of the biggest benefits of wearing socks is that they help to keep your feet pain-free. Have you ever noticed after a long day without socks you start to notice a painful sensation on your ankles, heel or even under your toes. Wearing socks, especially socks with extra cushioned soles, will help to eliminate friction and stop blisters before they start.
Another reason to wear socks with loafers is to keep your feet warm and comfortable. Especially in the cooler seasons, your feet will start to feel unprotected from the weather. Investing in cotton socks will provide better circulation for your feet and help to circulate the heat across your feet.
One of the most essential benefits of wearing socks is to keep your feet dry, wearing socks without loafers puts your feet at risk of getting hot and sweaty creating the perfect environment for fungus and bacteria to thrive. Wearing loafers without socks, can often lead to an uncomfortably damp sensation from the moisture which can even damage your shoes!
