22 degrees here in sunny Coventry today
Self-rotating socks! Do any of you suffer from this bizarre problem?
I always put my socks on properly - bottom of socks on soles of feet, heels of feet in heels of socks. An hour later, the socks have somehow turned themselves round so the heels are on top! I have no idea how or why this is happening...
I don't remember this being a big issue for me in the past. Is it another one of those strange things that only happen to older people?
Do the soles of your footwear wear evenly, if so this might be the answer you are seeking.It is still happening but I think that I have worked out why...
I have been wearing new very stretchy socks over the past few weeks. (I wore out several pairs of older socks which have now been put to one side to use when cleaning my bikes.)
I think the new socks stretch when I am walking about and move slightly on each foot. When the feet relax, the socks don't quite go back to their original positions. Effectively, there is a ratchet effect, which eventually builds up to 180 degree rotations of the socks. It is very irritating! I think I will consign these socks to the cleaning rags bag and start wearing non-stretchy ones.
