The Double Layered bamboo sock is inspired by the type of socks used by long distance runners. The outer and inner sock layers move freely over one another, minimising rubbing forces between the skin and soft tissues. A well made double layered sock massively reduces skin friction, which is the major cause of blisters and sores. As sores can be common with children in foot braces, wearing socks is vital for continuing their treatment.
