You’ve probably heard the expression, Never buy socks in pairs. It means you should only buy a pair of socks when you need them, rather than stocking up on extras so you always have a spare sock on hand in case one gets dirty or destroyed. It’s good advice if you want to save money, but it’s not good advice if you want to look your best every day—or even just look good on the occasional special occasion!
Why Are Some Socks So Expensive?
For starters, socks are really expensive because they are small, and therefore do not offer a lot of room for profit. But furthermore, some socks are expensive because they have crazy colors and patterns that you cannot find anywhere else. For example, if you want to wear a pair of purple ankle socks with black polka dots, you're going to have to pay at least $20 per pair.

Puma PowerCat I - $34.95
Ever wonder what $35 can buy you? With these socks, it's a well-cushioned pair that feels great on your feet. They're made from a soft cotton blend, and they have reinforced heel and toe for durability.
Cotton is a natural fiber so these socks will breathe better than synthetics. And if you don't wear them often, they'll last longer because cotton has more elasticity than manmade fibers like nylon or rayon.
