These are marvellous, from Sock Shop – a pair of socks that sort out your cracked heels as you walk about in them.

You’re supposed to wear them 8 hours a day for a fortnight to see the full effect, but even walking about for a day in them made a difference to my gnarly old trotters.

I know one is supposed to apply foot cream and then sleep in a pair of socks in the run-up to Spring but I find the sensation of wearing socks in bed just appalling. I can’t be alone.

Beauty Feet also claim that you can wash them 300 times before they lose their powers. 300 times? They’re even quite warm. Good old Sock Shop.
