The 5 Best Sock Subscriptions

How many times have you gone to grab a pair of socks, only to realize that there are none left in your drawer? Most people experience this on an almost daily basis, which can make it difficult to know what socks to buy when you do the laundry. While the answer may vary from person to person, there are some great subscription services available that will deliver high-quality socks directly to your door each month. If you’re looking for more socks than you already have, consider these five sock subscriptions...

1) Pick your preferences
Polyester blends and synthetic socks do not breathe well, so if you have hot feet or live in a warm climate, you may want to stay away from these options. Cotton is breathable but tends to wear out more quickly than wool. Wool is considered one of the best fabrics for socks because it absorbs moisture, insulates even when wet, does not produce odors (it can be washed and dried in a washing machine) and resists static electricity. It also dries faster than cotton, so your feet don’t end up smelling bad after walking around all day. Wool socks tend to feel coarser and itchier until they are broken in, so beware—and be prepared! Finally, there’s silk; people with sensitive skin like silk because it is hypoallergenic. But since silk has no elasticity, it’s not a great choice if you need socks that will offer support while exercising or standing on your feet all day. Instead, choose high-elasticity yarns such as nylon and spandex when making socks for athletic activities. And, it goes without saying that most socks should be washable in a machine; just make sure you read all care instructions before putting anything in your washer or dryer!

2) Know what you're getting
When it comes to socks, it's all about quality, not quantity. Some people subscribe to sock of the month clubs and are disappointed by what they receive. A small sock company might be able to get away with low-quality, mismatched socks for some time, but their reputation will suffer as soon as their customers speak up on social media or review sites. And who wants socks that fall apart after a few washes? If you're choosing a sock subscription, check out how many reviews each shop has gotten; if there aren't many (or any), then you may want to look elsewhere. On top of looking at past experiences from other customers, ask around: Do your friends have favorite sock subscriptions? What kinds of socks do they like to wear? This can help narrow down your search in terms of style and size so you know exactly what kind of socks you'll be getting every month. Also pay attention to materials! Are these going to feel comfortable when worn? You'll spend most days wearing socks... You should probably enjoy them! Finally, before subscribing make sure you read the fine print. Many sock subscriptions offer free shipping, but others will make you cover return shipping charges if you don't end up liking your socks or decide to cancel. Ask yourself whether this is worth it before handing over your money and starting a new sock subscription.

3) Consider cost
Although high-quality socks can be pricier than socks from discount brands, they often last longer. Buying a few pairs of higher-quality socks that you love and wear for years is much cheaper than buying multiple pairs of cheaply made disposable socks. If you’re looking to save money, look for quality secondhand options on websites like eBay or check out our guide to cool sock subscriptions. Make sure they're comfortable: Just because socks are good-looking doesn’t mean they have to be uncomfortable. Find socks with excellent toe spacing and heel fit so you don’t end up walking around with blisters (or worse). While support is important for your feet, it should never come at the expense of comfort! Think about socks as an extension of your daily outfit: Ultimately, socks just need to work well in your daily outfit. This means matching patterns with jeans, keeping them stylish while exercising, and finding socks that aren’t too thick or thin when you want extra warmth—and don’t forget other fun features such as interchangeable cuffs! Stylish men's sock subscriptions are hard to find; but we've scoured Instagram for great sock subscription brands. Use these top picks to kick off your search for awesome socks for women and men who understand style. Go sockless: It may sound crazy, but there’s something trendy about going sockless now!
