"I have never gotten a blister wearing FITS, which means I have never had to cut a trip short. If you take care of your feet, they will give you the opportunity to see the most that life has to offer."

Hello all, my name is Cammeron Evans and I am a Northwest native. I am 24 years old and currently reside in Seattle, WA. Living in Seattle puts you at the footsteps for not only the entire Washington Cascades, but also the gorgeously diverse Olympic Mountain Range. I am a freelance photographer with a day job at the most exciting grocery store out there, Trader Joe's. This gives me a great deal of free time to pursue what truly makes myself complete, the outdoors. I was happy to have been given the opportunity to do a little trip report here for my favorite sock company out there - FITS!

I recently took an amazing trip to the Goat Rocks Wilderness, which sits along the scenic “PCT” in the South Cascades of WA. Our trip consisted mainly of hiking through alpine meadows and some small snowfields still left behind from this winter. Our journey began at roughly 4,000 ft., and our destination for the evening sat just under 8,000 ft. atop Old Snowy Mountain.

Hiking in Goat Rocks Wilderness

This loop trip starts out in a lush forest and quickly begins climbing into sub alpine meadows with thinning trees, replaced simultaneously by gorgeous wildflower fields as far as you can see! Close to the halfway point, for the day, my group and I stopped for a quick break to gather some steam for our destination. At this point, Old Snowy Mountain has now become very prolific sitting high up along the ruin that is the Goat Rock Range.

After a couple more hours of climbing we finally achieved our camp for the afternoon/evening. Expansive views of the wonderland that we just emerged from are now in view with vivid looks to Mt Adams, St. Helens, and Rainier! We could even see the second half of our loop ahead including magical Goat Lake tucked away in the rock.

I am a firm believer that when performing strenuous tasks, your body’s ability to compete and keep moving foreword relies heavily from the ground up. I have hiked in several brands of socks, and my partner and I have stopped looking with FITS. I have never gotten a blister wearing FITS which means I have never had to cut a trip short. If you take care of your feet, they will give you the opportunity to see the most that life has to offer. I will continue hiking in these socks as long as they keep making them. I just recently added a few new pairs as the ones from THREE years ago had just begun to show “wear and tear”. Thank you for taking a minute to read about my adventure, now get out and start planning yours!

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.
