    Crossed my mind earlier today. We already wear shoes, why do we need socks? Why don't we make the inside of shoes really nice instead?

    Socks absorb the sweat from your feet meaning your shoes stay cleaner, less smelly and also means that bacteria and fungi are less likely to grow in your shoes and infect your feet.
