Choosing Men’s Socks

While there is snow on the ground, it’s important to invest in a quality pair of socks, as there are not many things worse than having cold feet.

The word sock is derived from the Old English word socc, meaning light slipper, and were originally made from animal skins. Nowadays socks are made from a variety of different materials such as cotton, wool and nylon among others.

Ankle socks are worn casually with trainers, or for athletic use. Knee-high socks are associated with formal dress or uniform. Over the ankle socks are usually worn for work and are a favourite for giving to your dad at Christmas.

We stock a variety of men’s socks including ankle socks, knee highs and work socks.
