  • Heel Lock® provides heel security that limits the chances of a blister when combined with a properly fit boot.
  • Design includes cushioning surrounding your entire foot, ankle, and calf.
  • Durable nylon reinforced exterior.
  • Double-welted top so the sock always stays up and doesn’t bind or slip.
  • Over-the-calf length falls just below the knee.

    Great Socks for Fishing!

    These socks are wonderful! They're soft, have the perfect amount of compression, don't fall down, and keep your feet warm when it's cold outside and cool when it's hot outside! Magic!

    Great socks

    I rank these socks right up there with the Mountaineer. These are the best socks I have ever owned. They fit my big feet just fine (size 14 feet — socks are XXL). They stay up on my legs, too, unlike some other OTC socks I have worn. If you like great socks that are real OTC, get these.

    Good socks

    Very comfortable even though they don't feel like on the outside love that they are over the calf .

    Best sock there is for wade fishing

    I've used the Wader OTC socks for the last 4 yrs. Durability is outstanding. They do not slide down your calf, or bunch up around your foot. Highly recommend.

    Best socks for cold!

    So haven’t got to wear them to fly fish yet, but wore them for an ice climbing trip. Fit perfectly down in my boots and kept my feet warm, even at 12 degrees and climbing on ice for 6 hours each day. I don’t have double boots, so warm socks are a must, and these were perfect. Can’t wait to use them this spring to fly fish!


    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.
