Ultimate Guide to Sock Shopping

Sick of socks that wear out? We're here to help with our Ultimate Guide to Sock Shopping.



In this video, 10th generation sock maker, Andrew Lindner, gives his top tips on what to look for when buying socks, to ensure they last a year, or more.


They include:


1. Make sure you select the correct sock size.

2. Match the sock thickness with your shoe type and intended use. To learn more about our sock styles (including our range of Loose Top Socks) and which sock goes with which shoe style, please see Selecting Your Style.

3. Consider the construction of the sock, specifically the shape and angle of the sock heel. The more defined the heel is, the more likely the sock will stay in place, rather than moving around in your shoe.

4. Consider the fibres used to make the socks. A high percentage of synthetic fibres will often result in the socks stretching and becoming baggy on your foot. It also contributes to sweaty feet.
