In the Wild: Spring Stoke! - FITS®

May 25, 2017

Spring Stoke! This heavily used phrase is the best way to describe the feeling of spring in the west.

The days get longer, the rivers start to flow, wildflowers bloom and the snow starts to melt down low (and dump in the mountains). There is a lot to be stoked about! For us, we are stoked about what spring is like now, but also for what spring is hinting at to come. Summers in Montana are crazy good and we start to get a taste of that during the spring. All smiles while fishing inside of Yellowstone National Park. We are pumped for the park to open up for fly fishing again in May!

We have been getting a ton of snow since the ski resorts closed. Spring skiing has been awesome. And deep!

Doing some “bark boarding” on some leftover snow pack. Due to snow, we almost turned around on this high alpine overnight, but it was well worth pushing through.

Springtime is for new pups!

We have been training this little guy to be the ultimate boat dog.

So much stoke after seeing the size of this fish! You could imagine the complete shock after pulling over to get unstuck from “this rock”, and then seeing this thing!

Hiking in the Bridgers is tough to beat in the spring. Here we had just peaked over the ridgeline after an almost vertical hike, and decided to catch our breath before the scramble to the top.

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.
