Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between hiking socks and regular socks?

Hiking socks are usually made from heavier materials than regular socks, like merino wool. This helps protect your feet from debris and blisters. They also typically have extra padding in the heels and toes, which provides additional cushioning and support. In addition, merino wool hiking socks have moisture-wicking properties that help keep your feet dry even when you're sweating. On the other hand, regular socks are often made from lighter materials like cotton, which doesn’t wick away moisture or provide as much padding and protection as hiking socks. If you're planning on doing a lot of hiking in rough terrain, having a sturdy pair of socks designed for hiking will make a significant difference.

Are thicker or thinner socks better for hiking?

Choosing between thick hiking socks and thin hiking socks is a personal choice. Many hikers swear by thick, padded socks that help protect their feet from blisters. However, others find thinner socks to be more comfortable because they allow their feet to “breathe.” At FITS, we offer both thick hiking socks and thin hiking socks, depending on your preference. If you’re not sure which cushioning you prefer, you can opt for a mid-weight hiking sock to start. Regardless of how thick or thin your socks are, make sure they’re constructed with breathable fabric and offer moisture-wicking properties to keep your feet odor and sweat-free throughout your hike.

How tight should hiking socks be?

A good pair of socks is one of the most important hiking gear items. But how do you know if your socks are too tight or too loose? Ideally, your hiking socks should be snug but not constricting. They should provide enough support to prevent blisters and chafing, but they shouldn't be so tight that they cut off circulation. If you're unsure whether your socks are the right size, try doing a "pinch test." Take a pinch of fabric from the top of the sock, and try to stretch it out. If you can stretch the fabric more than an inch or so, the socks are likely too big. Conversely, if you can't stretch the fabric at all, the socks are likely too tight. If you’re not sure what size hiking socks you need, use our FITS sock size chart to find your perfect size for the perfect fit.

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.
