Heading into winter we start to change our footwear, slippers are dragged out of the cupboard and we start to put on socks to keep those feet warm. But how does this affect our balance poor footwear is a big hazard so how can you keep yourself safe?
Socks are great if they go inside your shoes but worn with out shoes they are a hazard!!
They can cause you to slip on tiled and wooden floors, if they are too loose you can trip over the socks themselves. It is important that you wear either bare feet or well fitting shoes or slippers. Banish wearing only socks in your home and stay safe.
