When someone asks you what article of clothing is hardest to find in your size, socks probably aren’t the first thing to come to mind. Think about it – how many times do you pull off your socks at the end of the day and find indentions in your leg from them? You need a better-fitting (and more awesome looking) sock. Portland, Oregon’s Sock It to Me is serving up exactly that, with quirky designs and socks that are made to fit bigger legs and feet.
The company sent me a few pairs of socks from their crew and knee high sock collection, which I took with me on a recent trip to San Diego in order to put them to the test. Like many of you reading this, I have wide feet and thick legs, and while most socks will fit my feet, they aren’t that comfortable. Sock It to Me’s STRETCH-IT socks not only sport a variety of designs, but they stretch up to 21 inches in circumference. What does that mean for you? These socks will fit up to a men’s size 13 foot. These Super Hero! Red & White Socks are probably the closest I’ll ever get to becoming The Flash.
What about the crew socks, you ask? While they don’t sport the same amount of stretch that the knee socks do, they are still soft and comfortable, also able to accommodate up to a size 13 foot. With so many designs to choose from, you’ll be able to find something you like in the size and style you need. I chose the men’s Llama Drama crew socks, myself.
