Socksare every bit an important part of a woman's hosiery wardrobe as pantyhose and stockings. And, over the last decade, athletic socks for women have topped the list. Meant to enhance exercise and athletic performance, many athletic socks have beneficial features, such as cushioned heels; extra padding on the ball of the foot; breathable quick-dry fabric; non-binding tops and compression arches. By far the most popular style of athletic sock is the low-rise style, which may have a very narrow top band that barely shows over the top of the shoe. Some low-rise styles have a slightly wider top band, which is comfortable with higher-cut athletic shoes. Still and always popular is the crew sock. These usually rise above the ankle to mid-calf and are typically offered in white and black. Athletic socks look trim and offer benefits that make them a must-have in your activewear wardrobe.
