Basics of custom socks – Sizing

July 17, 2019

We believe you have read the article about sock length if not, it will not affect you to read the following article.

On major shopping websites, socks for men, women, and children are often provided, and with the corresponding size, you may be a bit confused and do not know how to choose. And when you buy socks for someone else, the chaos gets worse. So one size fits most is often your first choice, and obviously, this choice is helpless. So how can we choose the right size for ourselves? Don’t worry, let’s make some clear explanations.

Socks, just like shoes and clothes, have their size. The difference is that socks have a special property, that is elasticity. Socks have good flexibility and ductility, so the size of socks often shows a threshold. See the table below:

Socks size 9-11, refers to your foot length range. That is to say, socks of size 9-11 are suitable for foot shapes of 9 to 11 inches in length range. The corresponding shoe sizes are US women’s shoe size 5-10, US men’s shoe size 4-7.5, UK shoe size 3-8, and EU shoe size 36-41. This also indirectly explains why many socks have Unisex choices, socks have good flexibility, so that a certain range of foot shapes, can achieve a good fit.

For example, when a lady chooses socks, she knows her shoe size is US size 6. Then she chooses Socks size 9-11.

A man’s wife knows that her husband’s shoe size is UK size 11, so she can buy socks of size 10-13 for him.

So basically when you’re buying socks, just look at your shoe size. Very simple, right?

  • What if the form doesn’t have the size I want?

Don’t worry, we can customize special socks for you. For customization, please refer to the following links: Custom Socks Guide

  • Do I have my design or do I want to design my socks?

No problem, the same answer. We can customize them for you. But make sure the pattern is not too complicated. The simpler the pattern is, the better the elasticity will be because the pattern woven will occupy the space of elastic fibres, thus limiting the elasticity. Just like a net, it is flexible, but adding some inelastic elements inside will affect the overall elasticity of the whole net.

How to customize the pattern, please refer to our customized homepage: Custom Socks Guide
