Should I wear socks with my custom orthotics while breaking them in?

Asked 2 years ago

Hi guys! I just bought a pair of custom orthotics and I have started breaking them in. Is it better for me to wear socks with the orthotics while they are in the break in period? After the orthotics are "broken in," can I switch to wearing them while bare foot with a top cover over the orthotic? Thanks in advance!

If possible it is generally advised to wear socks with your orthotics, especially during the break-in period. Socks are paramount in keeping the moisture build up from the feet within your shoes away from the orthotics, ensuring good hygiene and reducing any odor that could arise as a result. Socks will further protect the feet from rubbing against the sides of your shoes, as well as cushioning the feet during walking or running activities. Without socks, regular cleaning of the orthotics is paramount to maintain their hygiene and will protect the feet against any sharp edges within the shoe.
