Chattanooga, TN– FITS®, makers of the best fitting performance socks in the world, announces their sponsorship of the 19th annual Janss Pro-Am Classic, held in memory of Sun Valley Company owner Bill Janss. The Pro-Am series of events and races will begin on Thursday, March 31st with the opening celebration and pro presentation at Michel’s Christiania in Ketchum, ID, and proceed with 3 days of fun-filled team skiing races in legendary Sun Valley.

Highly regarded as “the best party on snow,” the Janss Pro-Am Classic pairs skiers of all abilities with a celebrity Senior Pro and Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation Junior Pro to form teams of six. The teams then go head-to-head in a dual giant slalom format on world-famous Bald Mountain. Through out the entire event, skiers will be judged on who is sporting the best costume according to this year’s theme, “The Reel Deal, Movie Magic.” Skiers will pick their favorite movie, and compete for the best costume, as well as the title of fastest pro, fastest amateur, fastest team, Lee Gilman most inspirational, best crash, and championship team.

The Janns Pro-Am Classic benefits the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation, raising the necessary funds to produce quality on-snow programs, need-based scholarships for tuition and travel, academic assistance, racing opportunities and world-class training facilities for SVSEF athletes.

The Perfect Fit Starts With the Right Size.

Your sock size shouldn’t be a guessing game. Our socks range from small to double XL, but the best way to know the perfect fit for you is to match your shoe size to the chart on the left. That way, you’ll know the size you select will give you the fit and feel you expect.

Between sizes? Go with your gut, but rest assured that your socks will still fit great. If you receive your order and find yourself wishing you’d gone up or down a size, just let us know. We’ll happily send you replacements for your preferred size.

Concerned about laundry mix-ups? All FITS® socks are coordinated by color and size, based on the colors you see on the size chart. So, you won’t have to worry about mixing up your sizes with the other FITS® wearers in your home. (But stray socks mysteriously going missing in the dryer? Unfortunately, we can’t help with that.)

How Do You Determine Sock Size?

Sock sizes are typically measured in inches, not by your shoe size. So, a sock size 6-8 will comfortably fit someone whose feet are between six and eight inches long. However, at FITS®, we make it easy for you to choose the ideal sock size without having to measure your foot. Simply use our sock size conversion chart based on your shoe size to select the right fit for you. 

How Do You Measure Your Foot for Socks?

To measure your foot for socks, measure the length from the heel of your foot to the tip of your longest toe. The measurement in inches correlates to your sock size. For example, if your foot is 10 inches long, a sock size 9-11 should fit you comfortably. At FITS®, you can skip this step and find your sock size based on your shoe size using our conversion chart. 

What Is the Sock Size Conversion?

The sock size conversion refers to sock size compared to shoe size. While all companies may vary slightly on which size socks to purchase based on your shoe size, you can always measure your foot to find the right fit for you. 

What is Sock Size to Shoe Size?

Because sock sizes are determined by the length of your foot in inches vs. your shoe size, shoe and sock sizes differ. The FITS® sock size to shoe size conversion is as follows:

Knowing this makes it easy to choose the ideal sock size based on your shoe size without measuring your foot. 

What Age is Sock Size 9-12?

Sock sizes typically don’t correlate with age. For kids, age can be a general indicator of what size sock they’ll need, but everyone is different. An adult sock size 9-12 fits anyone whose feet are approximately nine to twelve inches long. For kids’ sock sizing, check with the company to find exact details to ensure your little one gets the perfect fit.
