Bamboo Socks

Socks made out of bamboo. We know what you’re thinking, and it’s “Won’t they be insanely uncomfortable? What kind of maniac would wear socks made out of bamboo on their feet?”

And you’d be wrong, because bamboo fibre used in these socks has amazing qualities that make them smoother and warmer than regular cotton socks. They’re also more absorbent, meaning they take moisture away from your feet resulting in fewer cheese-related incidents, and keep you warm and dry.

Pricewise, they’re surprisingly affordable (although nowhere near as good value as the sturdy black gents’ socks available on a regular subscrption from Socked), and don’t look like bamboo in the slightest. Because if there would be a disadvantage to bamboo socks, it might be if they looked like a load of old sticks, which they do not.
