The Webster's dictionary 📕defines a sock as: a knitted or woven covering for the foot usually worn under shoes and extending above the ankle and sometimes to the knee.
In ancient times, socks were made from leather or matted animal hair. In the late 16th century, machine-knit socks were first produced. Until 1800 both hand knitting and machine knitting were used to produce socks, but after 1800, machine knitting became the predominant method.
One of the roles of socks is absorbing perspiration 😓. The foot is among the heaviest producers of sweat in the body, as it can produce over 0.25 US pints (0.12 l) of perspiration per day. Socks help to absorb this sweat and draw it to areas where air can evaporate the perspiration. In cold environments, socks made from wool insulate the foot and decrease the risk of frostbite ❄️❄️❄️
Currently, socks in fashion continue to evolve. For work 👔one can be traditional and wear black dress socks and on another day wear green with poke a dots or purple stripes.
