Why Albert Einstein Never Wore Socks

Albert Einstein never wore socks! But he wasn’t just doing it out of rebellion as one might think, he had a pretty good reason of doing so. As stated in one of his letters: “I found out that the big toe always ends up making a hole in a sock. So I stopped wearing them”!

In another letter to his wife Elsa, he states how proud of his decision was “I got away without wearing socks and hid the lack of civilisation in high boots”.

Can it get more useless info than that? Maybe. But hey, that’s something we definitely didn’t know about the genius physicist, right?
