This Socks!!

No that wasn’t a typo, it is however a very bad pun.

But it does describe something interesting I discovered at the beginning of the week. I usually wear trainers to work and since moving to 2 shoes (which seems like a lifetime ago) I’ve been wearing cushioned low cut sports socks which I thought would add a little more padding around the heel. The problem I’ve only recently noticed is the band constricts around the ankle and tendon, wasn’t uncomfortable, just meant that at the end of the day I’d have a more noticeable limp than at the beginning of the day. I thought it was just my leg getting tired with all the walking I do, so the past couple of days I’ve been going through my usual routine with and without socks. Sounds silly, but without socks made a noticeable difference as there was no pronounced limp at the end of the day.
