After a long day of travel nothing stinks more than a pair of sweaty socks. Antimicrobial socks will keep your toes toasty without trapping sweat and odor — some brands even use special designs and fabrics to boost circulation. Whether you are a gym enthusiast or frequent flyer, antimicrobial socks are a foot-friendly option.


Thorlos Fitness socks are the perfect solution to sweaty and uncomfortable feet. The clinically-tested design reduces foot pain and helps prevent blisters during a range of activities. The company also makes socks specifically for hiking, trekking and tennis.


The Walking socks are especially suited to guided tours and the Fitness socks are appropriate for light jogs and aerobics classes. The cushioning helps reduce foot strain while the moisture-wicking fabric, with patented Throlon, makes these socks ideal when time is short and sweaty socks are the last thing on your mind.


Despite the odor-free comfort these socks provide, Thorlos socks add bulk and may make tighter fitting shoes uncomfortable. Women’s Thorlos come in three different heights —crew, mini-crew and slouch — while the Men’s socks are available in crew. Prices range form $13.99–16.99 per pair. Although color selection is limited, the socks are a worthy investment and sure to be your go-to workout pair.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
