Sometimes our everyday socks can be uncomfortable and even restrictive. This is especially so if the elasticated tops are digging into our legs!  Well, one way around this is to choose the best soft top walking socks that you can find.

It’s likely that as very busy people we can easily overlook and even neglect the health of our feet.  This means that without a bit of research we might not even know about the range of soft top socks available to us.  It really is worthwhile spending a little time seeking out the best soft top walking socks out there!

What are soft top socks?

Protrek Mountain Soft Top Walking Sock

HJ Protrek Mountain Soft Top Walking Socks

These are socks that have been designed for those of us who dislike the feeling of normal elasticated tops digging in. Not only can this leave unsightly indentations on our skin when we take the socks off but the damaged skin can be quite sore too.  These socks are particularly good if you suffer from diabetes or perhaps poor circulation!  So wearing socks specifically designed to incorporate a nice comfy soft top can be very beneficial.

If we take the original SoftopTM socks as an example, we’ll find that these are non-elasticated socks. These are manufactured in rather a unique way, using three relaxation panels. These panels, when put together, form the cosy soft top of the sock.  Hence perhaps the best soft top walking socks you can get!

Why choose only the best soft top walking socks?

Firstly think of the immediate health benefits. If you suffer from diabetes or poor circulation these socks can really help to make a difference! Secondly, think about comfort. For example, the HJ cotton-rich soft top sock offers added ventilation! It does this via its ventilated foot panel.

Ideally, it’s good to have socks that won’t cause irritation through rubbing. HJ’s soft-top socks are designed to contract vertically when worn, making sure that they stay up all day with little or no stress on your circulation.  Therefore it really is worthwhile seeking out the best soft top walking socks for you. It’s worth knowing too, that HJ’s non-elasticated socks are endorsed by the Institute of Chiropodists and Podiatrists, so you can’t go wrong!
