Prevention of infection, discomfort, abscesses and lesions on one’s feet is often as simple as having a good clean pair of socks.

I’m pretty sure socks of all shapes, sizes and styles are welcome although nothing beats a nice dry wool pair when your shoes (if you have them) are soaked right through.
