Sock Features  

Each of our socks is engineered with specific features to keep your feet happy.

Our socks range anywhere from ultra light to extra heavy with varying thickness when it comes to fabric weight.

Length: The length of our socks varies by activity. For example, you won’t find any show socks in our winter sports section, which is made up of mostly knee-high socks. Likewise, you will find both no show and knee-high socks in our running sock section. Basically, the length of your socks is just based on preference.  

Fit: Socks can’t do their job unless they fit you properly! Socks should fit you snug in the toe and heel. Make sure to follow the size charts and brand guides to make sure you’re getting the correct size. You should also keep thickness in mind, as you don’t want your shoes to feel too loose or too tight.

Padding/Cushioning: Varying by activity, our socks offer targeted cushioning in the heel and ball of the foot for comfort and protection. Extra padding and cushioning are typically created by increasing the density of the weave or by weaving long-wearing synthetic materials into those specific areas.

Arch Support: Some of our socks offer a tighter, more supportive weave in the arch of the sock to improve support. This is especially important if you have an extremely high arch, flat feet, or plantar fasciitis, as it can help relieve discomfort. But remember, your shoes are actually more important when it comes to arch support!
