Better than Expected

I love these compression socks. In New Mexico during the pre-fall months it can get pretty dang hot during the day and then super chilly at night. My boyfriend and I like to camp and hike so we were pretty excited to try out these socks. I was a little hesitant with the tightness and compression, but once I got them on and started walking around, I noticed that the wideness of my feet no longer rubbed on the sides of my hiking boots. My hiking boots actually fit better and not so snug as they had before. A good snug hiking boot is essential for hiking support, so this was a nice surprise. Also, my feet did not sweat and I didn't have to change my socks afterward. Once evening came, it got pretty chilly, and normally I would keep my shoes or boots on and just let them hang off the edge of the SUV, but this time I didn't have to. My feel were cozy and warm and dry. Surprisingly, considering I had been wearing these socks all day. I think they are the best hiking socks I have tried and I will purchase them again. I especially love that they are made right here in the USA too!

light hiker crew socks

Not particularly comfortable at first -- the inside of the socks is kind of rough and unfinished. But they 'wore in' and are now fine.

Best Socks ever made

I bought my first pair of fits socks more than 10 years ago. My first thought when I put them on was WOW! The (fits hackers) are my favorite. They are the most comfortable sock I have ever worn. One night at work my shoes and fits socks got wet and I had a dry pair of another brand of socks in my locker so I put them on. I wore them for a couple of hours and I just couldn’t stand them and fortunately my fits had dried out and I was able to put them back on. Since that day I have never put another brand of socks on my feet and I never plan to. I have gotten many other people turned on to the fits hacker socks. I wear the light hikers in the warm months of the year and the medium hikers in the cold months.

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.
