Taking care of our feet is so important. I have done many different things over the years to help me improve the health of my feet. Moisture, inspections, doctor visits, and general care have become part of my routine.

I do wear socks a lot more than I ever did before and this article caught my attention.

These socks actually help monitor the temperature of your feet to alert you to possible injuries that you may not see.

"Assuming everyday use, the batteries powering the Siren socks’ sensors last for six months without needing to be charged. Rather than replacing batteries after the six months, the user can opt-in for automatic shipments of new socks. The socks are moisture-wicking (keep feet dry) and currently come in black or white.

In addition to the socks, the Siren system includes:

Real-time temperature data of your feet

Free smartphone app, which offers live data viewing, sharing capacity, alerts, and data trends (see screenshots below)

Customer service that calls or texts the wearer about potential injuries"

Here is more information on the direct website if you are curious. They are in presales now, and will ship 7 pairs for the presale price of $179.00. I have no clue if any insurance companies would cover these, but it might be worth asking if you are interested.

Good information. My feet rarely sweat. I don't wear socks during the summer months. In the summer if my feet get hot I get uncomfortable.

The only problem I had with my feet were really bad toe cramps. Since I have had my CPAP machine, I have not had that problem.

For me these socks would be a waste of money.

Interesting product Gabby. I've not been able to do my morning 4-mile walk for the past 6 months due to plantar faciitis in my left foot/heel. It seems to finally be getting better with daily foot exercises, orthotic inserts and a splint I use at night…wish there was a sock that would help with plantar faciitis.
