Deciding what kind of sock to buy can often be difficult when faced with so many choices in the marketplace. Locating a proper sock, one that works best for you, your activity, the time of year as well as weather conditions, makes all the difference in your personal comfort. Most of the time we buy new shoes after new shoes, looking for a improved comfort level, but come up lacking. Better yet, we blame the shoes we have for being uncomfortable, when in most cases it’s the sock.
Wearing the proper sock is critical to the enjoyment of athletic activities, your favorite sports or just the great out doors. Every action from walking and jogging to golf and tennis or even skiing creates different stress points on the body. You take precautions with your body, are you taking the same care of your feet? In order to prevent injury, feet and sensitive spots on your foot should be protected. The occurrence of blisters and other foot problems while exercising or performing your favorite sports can be reduced by wearing socks that fit exceptionally well and that wick moisture.

Getting the right fit is essential to comfortable feet. After all, if your feet aren’t comfortable the rest of you won’t be either. And you won’t want to start let alone finish that hike, workout or walk. Here are some things to look for when buying socks.
- Sock toe seams should be flush and smooth against the skin with no bulkiness or irritation may occur.
- Socks should fit the foot perfectly. If they are too tight, they’ll restrict circulation; if they are too loose, they’ll increase friction which leads to blisters. Comfortable fitting socks are critical to good foot health and athletic performance.
- No crowded toes! Toes need room to wiggle and be happy, but not so much room that there’s constant rubbing against the sock or foot slipping in the shoe which will also cause blisters.
- Kids need great-fitting, high-performance socks too. Keeping kids’ feet dry and healthy is important, and excellent fit is part of that. Most socks made for children are simply shortened adult socks or little, uncomfortable tube socks. Our socks are designed to fit munchkins!
