Athletic Socks FAQs

What are the best sports socks for me?

The best sports socks for you often depend on the specific sport you’re playing or activity you’re doing. Some have more highly reinforced stress zones than others, or higher quality materials used in their construction. Much of this also depends on the brand you’re looking at. So, to find the best sports socks for you, think about what you’ll be wearing them for and the brands you prefer before making your choice. Though, if you’re looking for a simple pair of socks to play in, you can never go wrong with just a plain white pair of cotton athletic socks.

What are sports socks made of?

Depending on the brand - or even the specific sport that the socks are made for - you’ll find a variety of materials used in the construction of athletic socks, but most sports socks are made of cotton, synthetic materials or a combination of the two. Cotton is lightweight, durable and highly breathable, making it an excellent all-round natural choice to craft athletic socks. Adding synthetic fibres strengthens the sock, providing greater durability and elasticity to make sure they keep you on your feet for longer. If you’re conscious about the materials used to craft the socks you buy, each product page should have a list of materials contained within each pair.

What is the difference between athletic socks and normal socks?

A great pair of athletic socks can definitely make a difference to your sporting experience over a regular pair of socks. Their thicker construction and reinforced stress zones make them a good deal more comfortable when playing sports. They’ll reduce the likelihood of blisters, keep your feet comfortable and wick moisture to ensure that your feet stay more comfortable for longer.

How long do athletic socks last?

As you’ll generally be more active in your athletic socks, putting more physical strain on them and likely sweating in them a bit more, you’ll probably need to refresh your collection a little more frequently than your other socks. As long as you’re looking after them right, you can expect most good athletic socks to last between 4–6 months of decent wear. Some may last shorter or longer depending on how frequently and heavily you wear them.

What size athletic socks should I buy?

You’ll be the same size in athletic socks as you would be for any other pair of socks: your regular shoe size. Once you know your shoe size, simply match it to the size range found on the pack of sports socks and you’ll be good to go. Athletic sock packs are usually sold with a size range e.g. men’s 9-12 or men’s 6-8, so it’s easy to find the right size for you. If you’re a size 10 shoe, choose the men’s 9-12 pack of socks - nice and easy!
