We eat, sleep and dream socks. We’re soxperts. We want you to become soxperts too!
Material (Fabric), Weight, and Height are the most important information about each and every sock. If you know what these things are – you’ll be able to pick the right sock for any occasion.
Material - Material matters! When choosing a sock, it’s important to know what it’s made of. Fabric content determines whether a sock is best for hiking, running or everyday wear.
Weight – We watch our weight. Fabric weight is critical when selecting the right sock. Skinny knits are best when you need a close fit, while thicker fabrics provide excellent cushion and insulation. We watch our weight! Fabric weight, that is. Ultralight, light, medium, heavy and extra-heavy, the type of padding and insulation you’ll need in a sock varies depending on your activity. Fabric weight describes the warmth and padding level of a sock. Skinny knits are best when you need a close fit, while thicker fabrics provide excellent cushion and insulation. A heavy cushion sock is best if you’re on your feet all day while an ultralight sock will minimize blistering if running is your thing. Our Sock Finder can help you select the perfect fabric weight for you.
Height – No show, knee-high or micro crew, SocksAddict.com has the right sock height for each shoe or activity. Sock height describes the highest point a sock reaches on the leg.
