What Are The Best Basketball Socks?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Many new basketball lovers and players still find themselves confused when it comes to deciding the socks to wear for a basketball game. According to a majority of players, good basketball socks are the ones that are able to push the sweat away from the feet to keep the foot dry and to promote mobility.

However, the ability of socks to push away sweat and moisture largely depends on the fiber of the socks. According to the American Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine, the compressibility and the mechanical structure of socks plays a pivotal role in wicking sweat. The best basketball socks are made with synthetic fiber that possesses the following qualities:

• Pushes moisture to the outer layer, away from the feet

• Does not stretch

• Does not lose its shape

• Does not bunch up inside the shoe

• Does not cause too much friction

How Do You Know You Bought The Wrong Socks?

One thing you should be definite about is that you have the right size. Socks that are either too big or too small may cause painful blisters under your feet, limiting your ability to move on the court. On the other hand, socks that are thin might also cause problems as they don’t provide enough padding between the feet and the shoes, which leads to friction and thus, blisters. As basketball is a demanding game that requires you to move sideways quickly, you cannot compromise by picking up the wrong socks.

Where To Buy?

Basketball socks can be purchased online and also at your local sports goods store. When you finally find a pair that suits you, purchase two to three pairs of the same socks so that you can change it whenever necessary. Players who realize that their feet sweat excessively tend to change their socks during halftime.

You can also ask the shop representative specifically for hydrophobic socks. These socks are designed for athletes involved in high intensity sports and they are the best at repelling sweat and heat from your feet.

For many people the socks they wear to the game can be the deciding factor between failure and success on the court. For more information, visit our website
