It's just a fact: engaging in sports and other physically active pursuits makes your feet sweat. Hot, wet feet are likely to inhibit performance and make you uncomfortable. Enter athletic socks, designed with features to make every workout more comfortable. Along with features like cushioned footpads, the most important feature of an athletic sock is moisture wicking. Wicking fabrics transport wetness from the inside of the sock to the outside, where it can easily evaporate. This keeps your foot dryer and cooler.

Wicking athletic socks come in styles to suit every activity and taste. Sock liners are cut very low on the ankle, with a narrow cuff that barely shows over shoes. Quarter-top socks have ribbed bands just at or above the ankle. These allow for full motion while also providing a little warmth around the ankles. Some wicking athletic socks add high-tech features, like ankle support, built-in arch support, cushioned foot and toe seams and ventilated mesh panels for breathability. While they make not make you Olympics-ready, good moisture-wicking athletic socks will keep your feet comfortable and dry, removing one more excuse for not working out.
