How do Dr. Foot® Silver socks Protect the toes?
The heel and toes are particularly susceptible to germs. Therefore, we have incorporated a naturally antimicrobial silver fiber on the forefoot and heel. Upon contact, it damages the outer shell of bacteria and fungi and weakens or kills them.
- The toe spaces are protected areas for bacteria and microbes. Favored by the poor ventilation in the footwear and by the side compression in too-tight shoes or conventional socks without toes, there is a warm, humid, dark greenhouse climate - ideal for harmful germs.
- Many microbes nest in the foot's callus. Since the heel and forefoot are subjected to the greatest stress when running, callus tends to form as a protective layer.
Common areas of application
Improvement of your own foot hygiene in sensitive
areas (hospitals, retirement homes, etc.)
- Control odors in poorly ventilated work shoes and boots
- Prevention of infection in places with increased risk to the feet, f.ex. after visits to public baths, spas, swimming pools, etc.
- Avoiding foot infections in diabetics and people with weakened body defenses
Frequently asked questions:
Are normal toe socks not enough?
Normal toe socks without silver fiber are already a step towards improving foot health. Toe socks with silver thread can, however, give an additional boost to the body's defenses in situations where the feet are at particular risk.
No silver thread is noted in the material identification. Why?
The European Textile Labeling
How many times can I wash my Dr. Foot Silver Protect until they lose their effectiveness?
We use a silver thread that does not lose its effect. Even after 200 washes, 99% of the antimicrobial effectiveness remains.
