    They don't last very long

    These socks are very soft and comfortable, but they just don't hold up very well. Even with light use. The pair I have are meant to be hiking socks, but I just don't think they're durable enough.



    Hi Sarah, Thanks for the review! While all FITS are comfortable, we do have more durable options if you find that you are wearing through a style quickly. Our Medium Rugged - Crew is a fully cushioned style similar to the Medium Hiker but with a little extra nylon on the exterior for added durability.

    Sock Quality

    I’ve been a repeat customer for years and am reporting that the socks are not holding up as well as they used to under normal use. That applies to the Hiker and the solid black version. I’m having trouble with holes appearing at the toes and heels too soon. Fit Socks have been my favorites for years but the durability needs improvement. Thank you.

    Quality and comfortable

    I'm new to FITS socks and got to admit I was a little skeptical about the wool blends. I thought they might be too warm. They seem quite breathable so far. My main goal was right sizing with fitted socks, and these are quite comfortable.

    The socks are different from my other exact purchase. They shrink after 2 washes and grip your calves really tight. After wearing them for about two months they loose their tuft at the toes and heal. I’ve bought about 12 pair of these socks and they wear out pretty quick. Over all good sock



    Hi Jeffrey, Thanks for the review! If you feel the socks have shrunk, please reach out to They would be happy to discuss sizing and make recommendations for more durable styles. Have a great day!


    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.
