So You Wanna Be a Pro?

You've seen all the commercials. Some guy who can't play a sport, puts on a pair of shoes and suddenly he's the man. He can dunk, bicycle kick, burn the defense and put all the others to shame. The shoes made him a superstar. While we might have become a bit jaded and view such advertisements with a chuckle, you shouldn't assume that the right gear wouldn't improve your game. As mentioned in past posts, the right kind of sock can make all the difference in the comfort of your feet and in turn be the competitive advantage you need to come out on top.

The American Podiatric Medical Association echoes this thought by stating that an individual's choice of athletic sock is an important one. Many sports podiatrists recommend acrylic socks as the fibers are excellent at wicking away moisture and keeping feet comfortable. The average foot has 250,000 sweat glands and they will do just that, sweat. While specialty socks generally cost a bit more than your average cotton socks, they also tend to last much longer. Their unique fibers give you the benefit of extreme foot comfort and coolness. So when its 4th and goal with ten seconds left (and with the way you throw it probably will be), you'll know that the one thing you can count on is your precious sock.
