Socks colors and mood

Did you know socks colors have an impact on people's moods? From a scientific point of view, color is an optical sensation that varies according to the wavelength of light. The light that appears white when it passes through a crystal prism is broken down into the 7 colors. Each color has its own frequency and emits a different amount of energy; it is therefore not a certain and absolute material reality, but rather it is a sensation that determines different and personal effects on the body and mind.

In addition to the 7 colors of the solar spectrum, there are also white and black. Many experiments have shown the effect of colors on our emotional world and it has been proven that in seeing a color we not only perceive a certain range of electromagnetic vibrations, but we also experience its emotional effect, more or less unconsciously.

At dstinctive our intent is therefore not only to offer unique and trendy socks colors, different from the high street brands but also a product that can evoke emotions and a joyful experience while creating your own personalized socks.

Color evokes sensory and affective responses of a universal nature. Here below we present a summary of the main characteristics of the 7 colors of the solar spectrum, including white and black.

Red
It is associated with blood, life, vital processes, instinct, desire, sexuality. It is the color of passion, of love but also of war. It is a warm, stimulating color that gives energy, strengthens the will, courage and extroversion.
