Best socks

I have a small foot and have trouble getting quality socks to fit. FITS simply fits and makes my feet happy!

The only socks I wear!

I have small feet. Women’s size 6 shoe, and most socks end up with extra material that bunches up in heel or toe. Fits never ever do that. They truly do fit, so very comfortable. On top of that, they are warm, wicking, don’t retain smells, and cute. Customer for life, as long as they keep this small size!

Great sock with some cushion

This sock is extremely comfortable with some nice cushion but not too bulky. I will definitely order more pairs.

Doesn’t Last

I have and own alot of Fits Sock, this is the only sock that show signs of wear and tear from the inside part of the socks and I have had them for about 1-2 years. I work in a hospital (ED) and is constantly on my feet for my shift (12 hours).



Hi Jimmy, Thanks for the review! I'm sorry you are having a problem with a pair of FITS. Since you spend long hours on your feet all day, you may benefit from a more durable style of socks. Please reach out to customer service at They can give you information about our Warranty policy as well as make recommendations for our most durable styles.

I have other Fit socks…they aren’t this tight, and it hasn’t been washed yet! Yikes! Hope it will be as great as the others once worn a bit more.



Hi Phyllis, Thanks for the review! I'm sorry these socks feel too tight. Please reach out to customer service at and they would be happy to discuss sizing and help with an exchange. Thanks!

Light hiker quarter

My go to sock most of the year. I have larger than average calves and the quarter hiker comes just above the top of hiking boots perfectly. Anything more like a standard crew just bunches up below calf and is a waste. It's either quarter or over the calf for me. More comfortable and better fit than darn tuff but definitely don't wear as well and don't have any warranty. Darn tough has replaced every sock I've ever worn out, and these wear about twice as fast, but the fit and feel of the fits is a little nicer.


Sock Sizing
women and men size chart

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.
