Confidence at Work – From Head to Toe - FITS®

June 07, 2019

Have you ever had a big presentation at work and spent nearly as much time planning what you’d wear as you did preparing the material?

That’s because feeling confident in what you’re wearing can go a long way in establishing confidence in yourself. Whether it’s ensuring your suit is well tailored, tying your tie just right in the morning or taking the extra time to iron your favorite skirt, when you look good, you feel good. And feeling good can be the boost you need to nail the presentation, meet that deadline or sign the new client.

Now, picture this: you’ve gone to great lengths to dress the part for your big presentation…and your socks keep slipping down your calves. Sure, no one can see underneath your dress pants, but you know. Or maybe you’re a little extra nervous and your feet are getting sweaty, making your socks damp and uncomfortable (don’t be embarrassed — it happens to the best of us). Suddenly, rather than focusing on your delivery and the content of your presentation, you’re distracted. All you want to do is reach down and pull your sock up. You can’t wait until the moment you’re safely back at home and you can peel off your unfortunate choice in footwear.

What a nightmare scenario, right? Here’s the good news: it doesn’t have to be this way. Investing in high-quality business socks can help ensure that your outer confidence extends from head to toe. Not convinced? Here are a few other reasons that well-fitting business socks should be part of your everyday work wardrobe: 

  • Bunchy socks can cause a bunch of distractions. You don’t need to waste time in your day repositioning bunched up socks. What you want is to put them on once and forget about them.
  • You should get to show off your style. Working in an office every day can feel monotonous, especially if you have to wear a suit and tie every day. Your socks are the ideal option for showcasing some personality, without sacrificing professionalism. 
  • No one likes stinky feet. You need comfortable business socks that will let your feet breathe. That way, when you come home and kick off your shoes, you won’t clear the room with stale sock smell.


Work is hard enough — you deserve to feel confident in comfortable socks. Just trust us on this one.

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.
