A fun fact that many of you may not know is that our office manager, Sam, is a painballer. She is actually on The Four Horsemen Paintball team. She was telling me all about a big scenario event the team hosted a while back. Sam explained that the scenario was based off the hit TV show The Walking Dead. There were two teams on the field- the survivors, led by Rick, and Woodbury, lead by the governor. Missions (how you get points to win the game) included saving Maggie and Glen from the governor, finding baby formula for baby Judith, and having a peaceful meeting between Rick and the Governor.
Sam said that on the day of the game we experienced dark skies stricken with thunder and lightning, and spouts of downpours! Apparently these weather conditions are not ideal for paintball.
You can imagine running and sliding around in mud would be very dirty and probably not very healthy for your feet. With normal shoes and socks, this could have been the case. This soggy mess of grass and dirt could cause fungal and bacterial infections if not careful!
But being the podiatry expert Sam is, she was mindful to wear Aetrex copper sole socks! Copper sole technology has been lab tested and clinically proven to help prevent bacteria, fungi, and odor as well as improve skin texture and appearance. The copper ions, which are imbedded in the yarn, are guaranteed to last for the life of the sock regardless of repetitive washes and wear and tear.
Sam and I both wear copper socks ALL the time. We have dress socks for work, Sam wears crew length for her paintball boots, and low cut for running. HFAA actually has a total of 5 styles of copper socks:
- Athletic, crew or low cut, black or white
- Non-binding, crew or low cut, black or white
- Compression, available in 5 different colors
- Dress, crew or ankle, black, brown, khaki or navy
So next time unfavorable conditions threaten to spoil your fun, remember to wear your copper sole socks, available at Heartland Foot and Ankle Associates!
