Have you ever found yourself in the same room with a pair of unpleasantly smelly feet? Yuck. Were the feet yours? Double yuck. Make note, BrightLife Direct has socks that will tame even the most odoriferous feet.
Foot odor is created by bacterial toxins that thrive in warm, moist, confined conditions, like sweaty socks. Did you know there are 250,000 sweat glands in your feet? More than any other part of your body! Socks obviously come in direct contact with your feet and the fiber composition of a sock can have a direct effect on foot odor. Synthetic fibers like nylon and spandex can restrict ventilation making the foot warmer and wetter. Natural fibers like cotton and wool provide greater air flow, but all compression stockings must have some synthetic fibers to provide the needed compression.
Two great solutions for your little stinkers are our Juzo Silver Sole socks and our new Aetrex Copper Sole socks. Silver and copper have natural anti-microbial properties that kill off the bacteria at the root of the problem. Aetrex copper socks are relatively new to BrightLife Direct. In addition to Aetrex compression, we sell their non-binding cushioned diabetic socks, and their athletic socks with cushioned feet and arch support.
As of this writing we have not received any Aetrex customer reviews, but our staff loves them!
