Wearing secret socks while in ihraam

Q: I would like to know if a man can wear secret socks with an inner soul during saee for Umrah and Hajj. As from previous experience his feet was hurt.

A: At the time of umrah and in the state of ihraam the sock that is worn should be like the umrah sandal where the metatarsal bone is exposed.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
