Sock Length & Sock Size:

Your Simple & Easy Guide to Sock Lengths & Sock Sizes

Depending on your interest in socks, your knowledge of sock length and sock sizes may just be "normal socks" and "high socks". I know that's the extent my knowledge went until I decided to step up my sock game. 

Since starting SockAndShop.com, we have sold countless amounts of crazy, novelty socks, custom socks, and personalized socks for all types of occasions and events. Of course, what we specialize in is one specific size of sock (as of now). For those interested in a specific sock length, this article is for you.

Maybe you're interested in stepping up your own sock game, maybe you have to buy a certain length of sock or sock size, or maybe you just want some cool facts for the next party you attend. Regardless, we have the simple chart to show you all the different sock lengths and how high each sock length ranges. 

Sock Lengths & Sock Sizes Made Simple

Footie/No Show Sock:

A footie sock is for when you want a sock to keep your feet safe from your shoes but not much more. These types of socks can be popular for work outs, hot weather, or when you just prefer not to have your socks seen. 

These socks are typically not customized, as it can be difficult to print on such a small sock. 

 

Ankle Length Socks:

When it comes to sock length and sock sizes, ankle socks are your standard socks that range from lower ankle to upper ankle height. They can also be known as a "mini crew". These socks are normally worn for casual wear or certain athletic sports. 

 

Crew Socks:

These are the socks we sell at SockAndShop.com. Crew socks usually go up around the mid-calf area, though depending on the wearer, can sometimes be slightly higher or slightly lower. These socks can be worn for casual wear, as dress socks, athletic sports, or many other occasions. 

We have produced custom crew socks and personalized crew socks for many events ranging from wedding socks, softball socks, basketball socks, soccer socks, and other custom athletic socks, custom crew socks for anniversaries, and custom crew socks just for fun.

We also are widely known for our poop emoji socks, gummy bear socks, and novelty soccer socks, along with hundreds of other of our popular sock design.

Knee High Socks:

Knee high socks go up to...well...knee height. They usually will go up just under the knee, or just over the knee. The general area of these socks is just around the knee's. 

These socks can have crazy prints on them, but when worn, the image tends to stretch more than a crew sock would. 

 

Over-the-Knee Socks:

Unlike knee high socks, over-the-knee socks length range from comfortably over the knee to the lower thigh. 

 

Thigh High Socks:

Thigh High socks are as high as socks go. They are very similar to over the knee socks, but these socks usually go up to the mid and even upper thigh, while an over-the-knee sock will go just over the knee or the lower thigh.
