Have you ever been annoyed by the uncomfortable rubbing caused by the seams around the toe box of your socks? Well, I have, no matter how subtle the seams look. So lately I’ve been turning my socks inside out so that the rougher edge of the seam is on the outside. This definitely reduces the rubbing and makes the socks feel smoother and more comfortable.
Of course, wearing the socks inside out exposes the seams, but my socks are covered by long pants or footwear. And I only wear socks in solid colours, so even when they peak out when I’m sitting down the fact that they are inside out isn’t at all noticeable.
I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who does this, but if you haven’t tried this trick, perhaps you’ll find it makes a comfortable difference for you too.
