Sock of the Month Club: The Sock Monster

<p style="background-color: yellow !important;"><br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> What kind of socks do you wear? Do you put on the same pair every single day, or does your sock rotation include different pairs from different categories? Do you even know what category your socks fall into? Well now that you&rsquo;re thinking about it, let&rsquo;s look into the four main types of socks that are out there and where they stand in the hierarchy of sockdom.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Materials - Cotton, Wool, Synthetic Fibers<br /> <br /> Cotton is a good material for socks because it breathes and doesn't irritate skin. Wool is natural, warm and long-lasting. Synthetic fibers are great because they can be made in different colors, textures and thicknesses. They're also more durable than natural materials like cotton. <br /> <br /> There are lots of different types of socks but they can all be broken down into a few main categories: ankle socks, crew socks and dress socks. ankle socks are thin with a low cut top that reaches just below the calf muscle. Crew socks are similar to ankle socks but they cover more of your calf muscle since they reach up to mid-calf length.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Length - Ankle, Crew, Knee Highs<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Sole - Flat, Ribbed<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Cuff &ndash; Beaded, Ragg<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Colors &ndash; Solids, Stripes<br /> </p>
