While going for a walk socks are important. Never avoid wearing socks as they avoid slippage and absorb sweat. Socks should always be of right size. Too tight socks can cause pain and too big socks can cause uncomfortable in daily activities.

Synthetic socks are recommended for running and jogging as they absorb sweat from foot.

Stick to one footwear Brand

Always stick to one particular brand. Our feet muscles get comfortable with according to a particular brand. Changing shoes brand will increase muscle tension and increase the chances of injury.

Here I would recommend using JQR Sports Brand. They have a nice collection of Running shoes.
