What Does Your Sock Print Say About You? - FITS®

April 26, 2019

We see you, Guy in a Fancy Suit With Funky Socks Just Barely Showing. You do you, sir. After all, if we can’t express ourselves through our socks, when can we?

But have you ever stopped to think about what your chosen sock print says about you? Well, you’re in luck — because we’ve broken down the different sock print personality types. Before we dive in, check out our wool socks for men to follow along! 

The Subtle Stripe

Solid colors aren’t quite interesting enough for you. You like a little color and flavor, but you’re also still typically in bed by 10:00 p.m. every night. And even though you want your socks to stand out, you also still try to match at least one of the stripe colors to your outfit — because in your book, even a colorful sock shouldn’t clash. 

The Fancy Floral

Sweet and friendly, you often feel like the caregiver of your friend group. You like pretty things and you aren’t afraid to stop and smell the roses. While you may spend too much money on fresh flowers at the farmer’s market, no one will ever accuse you of not looking on the bright side.

The Steady Solid

Look, socks are socks. You’re in it for comfort, not pizzazz. Pairing up socks after doing a load of laundry might be more difficult, but you’ve never been a flashy person — and that’s just fine by you.

The Goofy Geometric

You like intrigue and detail, but with a classic take. Patterns speak to you and you prefer your visual appeal with a side of order and organization. Let’s put it this way: while you have a lot of exotic spices in your cabinet, they’re all alphabetized.  

The Crazy Cartoonist

You’re a kid at heart and that’s never going to change. Some people might call you immature, but you just prefer to keep it lighthearted. Life is hard enough — why not have socks that make you smile?

The Classic White

In your opinion, there’s no sense messing with a good thing. You’ve never liked change, and besides, there’s a reason they say classics never go out of style.

However, regardless of what your sock print might be saying about you, here’s one thing we know for sure: socks should bring you joy. Wear what you like and like what you wear.

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.
