When it comes to gardening, your clothing can make all the difference. You likely don't think too much about your outfit when you're heading out to the garden. It's true you can garden in nearly anything. While there isn't necessarily a "dress code" for gardening, wearing comfortable, protective clothing can help you spend more time outdoors.
What should you wear while gardening? Your mind likely goes to wearing a hat to protect your neck and face from the sun, light-colored clothing to keep you cool, and protective gloves. However, socks are probably the last thing you think of. Socks are an important part of any outfit. There are socks for everything — formal, casual, and fitness. Why not have a special pair of bamboo socks for gardening?

You may be wondering what makes a pair of socks the best garden socks. Gardening is hard work. The best gardening socks are going to keep your feet cool, dry, and blister-free even if you spend hours in your garden watering plants, pulling weeds, or eventually harvesting your crops.
The best gardening socks should also keep your feet relaxed, pain-free, and comfortable. Because of this, it's important to note the materials and fitting of the sock.
If this sounds like the perfect gardening sock for you, bamboo socks should be your sock of choice. Bamboo socks have all these qualities – they protect your feet, combat foot fatigue with the right cushioning and support, and keep your feet dry, cool, and blister-free.
Keep Your Feet Dry, Cool, and Blister-Free with Bamboo Socks
EcoSox are made with bamboo viscose fibers. The materials used in the socks are derived from cellulose such as modal, lyocell, and viscose. This gives the socks a soft and buttery feel that will keep you super comfortable while you're working in your garden.
Bamboo socks are also 3-4 times more absorbent than cotton. Because of its naturally moisture-wicking properties, bamboo socks will keep your feet dry. Dry feet mean healthy feet! Wet feet are a breeding ground for bacteria that can lead to foot infections such as athlete's foot. Dry feet also mean your feet will stay odor-free.
Products marked with the "Blister-Free Guarantee" seal are created with yarn that naturally removes moisture and friction caused by moisture. With bamboo socks, you don't have to worry about a blister forming while spending extended time on your feet tending to your flowers and vegetables.
You can also help protect your feet by purchasing a fit that is right for you. EcoSox has low-cut socks, quarter-cut, and over-the-calf. Having a higher cut sock will provide additional protection to your ankle and calf. Taller socks are ideal for protecting your feet and lower legs from any bugs that may be hanging out in your garden as well.
All of these benefits make bamboo hiking socks ideal for any type of outdoor work like mowing the lawn or landscaping.
