6 Things You Need To Get Ready For Fall - FITS®

October 09, 2018

Even if it doesn’t feel like it where you live, autumn is officially here, and we could not be more excited! As we move into cooler weather, this will hopefully mean you’ll be going outside more to enjoy the changing leaves, bonfires, long walks on a trail, or even just to read a book on a park bench. Whatever you do, you’ll need to be equipped for any terrain, whether that be in an urban environment, dodging rain puddles in the street or in the country, or taking your dog for a walk through the woods.

Below, we’ve gathered 6 of our favorite and most versatile products to help in both extremes and everything in between.

No. 1: Comfortable Boots

Boots are a must for cold weather, but there is nothing worse than wearing a stiff pair of boots on a freezing day. Sorel carries a wide variety of products for the rugged outdoorsman and the stylish city-dweller. Their boots are 100% waterproof and they form extremely well around your foot, and also provide great sole support. Our top picks for comfortable boots are the  Madson Moc Toe for the guy and the  Ainsley Chelsea Boot for the girl (paired with these wool socks for women), as they have rugged treads for outdoor wear and stylish designs for the city.

No. 2: The Best Socks in the World

Now that you’ve got your comfortable boots, you’re going to need the most comfortable sock on the planet too. Yep, you guessed, yours truly, FITS! Our  Light Hiker Crew is the most versatile sock in our lineup. Great for everyday wear and, of course, the great outdoors. We have a huge selection of solid color socks or you can explore our Light Hikers in other  unique patterns and styles.

No. 3: Flexible Denim

Everlane offers ethically built and quality tested denim at a great price. Their most recent product enhancements are the Authentic Stretch denim for  girls and  guys, which they even tested out rock climbing. If they’re good enough for scaling a cliff, they’re good enough for relaxing around a fire with your friends.

No. 4: To-Go Tumbler

Whether for hot coffee in the mornings or iced water to keep you hydrated during the day, the 20 oz  YETI Rambler is the perfect size and style to keep your drinks hot or cold for a long period of time, no matter the occasion.

No. 5: Wool Cap

Keeping your head warm is a no-brainer. The  Wilson and Willy’s Knit Watch Cap is an extremely affordable and quality hat that comes in basic colors. One of the best parts about wearing one of these caps is knowing that they’re all made in the USA by a family-owned business, which started in the 1920s.

No. 6: Fleece

The last item on our list is a good old fleece! We can’t think of a better outerwear piece to invest in than something that can be worn over a T-shirt and used as a jacket for your outdoor adventures. Whether you need a standard  pullover, or a fleece with a  hood, The North Face has a huge selection in every style and color. You can’t go wrong adding this piece to your fall list.

Sock Sizing

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.
