    The best socks ever!!

    Almost perfect

    The elastic at the top is too tight. And no, I’m not overweight and I don’t have cankles. If I wear them very long I have to put the tight part down around my heel so it’s not so irritating, and I’m hoping that doing that will eventually stretch them out to be comfortable. Otherwise, the wool is wonderful, the pattern is pretty. They make my feet happy, but not my lower calves.

    Fits Medium Hiker-Crew

    I bought these socks for my partner because he had a medical issue that required him to change his socks frequently. His feet sweat a lot because he works on hardwood floors. He prefers these socks to any other brand. He says they are the best for moisture wicking, and they hold up the longest for kicking at the floor (a hardwood flooring thing). He loved getting so many!

    Good Socks

    I had purchase a pair of Medium Hiker crew socks from an outdoor store. They fit well in my hiking boots, xc ski boots, and tennis shoes. I bought xtra pairs online for myself, my 3 friends (xmas gifts) and my partner. I would say that all socks that I have purchased from FITS could go by this review. The socks, all of them, are form fitting on the foot and do not slide down in the boots or shoes.

    Great socks!

    These socks are perfect for hiking—well constructed, but also soft and comfy. I love them!! They also washed up well. I’ll be back for more!

    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.
