Fishnets

January 9, 2017

Everything old becomes new again, and one of the latest styling trends is no exception.

Fishnet stockings have been around for decades, taking on personas from sexy-sleazy (Fredericks of Hollywood) to grunge (Madonna’s Material Girl). This time around, the look is much cleaner, less overt, and in some cases downright sporty. No garter belt necessary here!

Pair them with old school sneakers and rolled up pants for casual take on the trend.

Stave Off The Stench

August 4, 2014

When I saw this post from Men’s Health entitled “How to Cure Stinky Feet,” I was intrigued. Not to name names of course, but I do know someone whose feet could knock you over when they remove their shoes at the end of the day.

So as a public service to this anonymouos person, and those that they love, here are a few ways to tame the stench…

Salt tends to pull the moisture from your skin, thus reducing the bacteria that survives there. It is suggested that soaking feet for 20 minutes a day in a solution of coarse kosher salt and warm water over a period of two weeks could have a positive effect.

Or, you could try to dry out the bacteria by soaking in one part vinegar and two parts water for 30 minutes each day for a week.

If turning your feet into a salad isn’t appealing, perhaps this is more your cup of tea. Brew some strong, black tea, and add cool water. Soak away the smellies for 3o minutes a day and let the acid in the tea act as an antiboitic to kill that nasty bacteria. Munching on a scone while you soak is optional.

In the meantime, stick to cotton socks, which allow your feet to breathe. As a courtesy to others, consider changing them mid day.

Spray your shoes with a disinfectant like Lysol. Saturate a pair of socks with it and stuff them into the shoes to marinate over night and help eliminate odors. Personally, I prefer Fabreze, but it doesn’t have the antibacterial punch of good ‘ole Lysol. It does however smell nicer, which is the end game here, isn’t it?

Sprinkle a little baby powder or plain old corn starch into your shoes to absorb sweat and odor. They will also soak up the stink during the day.

Smart Socks

June 26, 2013

There are lots of workout related gadgets on the market these days. From bracelets that track activity, calories and even sleep quality, to sensors inserted into running shoes connecting to  apps galore that track, prod, and reward progress, it’s overwhelming.

But what if there was something that could help prevent injury, and improve technique? For those of us who are a prone to injuries of late (ahem), this could be interesting!
The Sensoria is an insert that fits a specially developed athletic sock embedded with electronic fibers. The device can track activity, pace, distance and lap times as well as stance, cadence, foot position and stride length. It connects to an app, and users are told whether or not their running pattern is neutral or over pronated, which can result in injuries. Should an injury occur, the sensor can provide analysis to help the user improve technique to avoid future problems.

Statistics show that 60% of runners experience some type of foot injury annually. This smart sock could impact that number significantly.

The Sensoria kit is available for about $99, and includes a pair of washable socks, an ankle sensor and the app.
