Socks…perhaps the most underrated element of any school uniform, but every school child wearing shoes also must wear socks. Now socks can be a forgotten element of the uniform or branded socks can be used to accessorize, brand and improve the comfort and health of the child wearing them. Here are our top 4 reasons to think differently about branded school socks in South Africa.
1. Vinuchi Branded Socks Provide Student Comfort
Before we take a look at the aesthetics of branded socks, let’s think student comfort. A well-made Vinuchi branded sock with a defined toe, heel and arch support is designed to fit around the foot, providing extra support and cushioning.
Depending on the style of branded sock you choose, the Vinuchi team take great care to ensure that the right material is used to make our South African school socks so that students enjoy a comfortable fabric feel that also helps to protect their feet from the hard leather or plastic of school shoes.
Vinuchi branded school socks ensure your students not only look smart but are comfortable throughout the day, regardless of the weather.Socks - Vinuchi - Ties, Scarves, School Wear, Corporate Wear and Socks.
2. Vinuchi Branded Socks Help with Student Foot Health
A key reason quality branded school socks are so important is the affect school socks have on foot health.
Students are required to wear shoes for at least 6 hours a day, sometimes more if there are sports activities. Quality branded socks assist to move moisture and humidity from the sole of the foot around the outside of the shoe and out of the top of the shoe.

Removing moisture from around student’s feet is important to assist students to manage foot health and could prevent conditions such as athletes’ foot (Athlete’s Foot: Causes, Symptoms, and Diagnosis (healthline.com) which thrive in moist environments.
Vinuchi’s branded school socks help to protect South African students’ feet, particularly because the warm weather the country enjoys for most of the year means that perperation and the resulting unhealthy foot environment is a real concern for young feet.

Key to this process is understanding how elements of the uniform such as ties and socks can be used to accessorize the uniform.
Perhaps it is a colour within the uniform or your logo that you wish to highlight whatever aspect of the uniform you’d like accessorize, Vinuchi’s branded school socks are the perfect canvas for expression.
We’ve put together some of our favourite ways to use Vinuchi branded school socks to accessorize a uniform.
Long socks make the biggest statement as they offer a large visual platform. We particularly like choosing a strong colour which may highlight another aspect of the uniform such as navy blue which may be found in a stripe within the uniform.
Short socks are very practical for the South African climate and look particularly smart when matching the shirt of the uniform. An example is short white socks with dark shorts and a white shirt as a physical education uniform example.
If you are looking to enhance your uniform, then socks are a simple, inexpensive uniform change that could make all the difference to your school’s uniform. Contact us for some examples. About Us - Vinuchi - Ties, Scarves, School Wear, Corporate Wear and Socks.
