Today we are lucky to have so many options when it comes to picking out socks. There are socks that come in different colors, sizes, fabrics, textures and patterns. Some socks are long and others are short. Each sock is designed differently for a different purpose. In the world of men’s socks there are four major types of socks. They are dress, sport, work and casual. Each serves its own purpose based off design.

Dress Socks

These socks are ideal to pair with business suits during the day or night. They are also good for special occasions such as weddings, baby showers, or other formal events. Normally, they are light weight, have sheer panels, and are flat. They come in two lengths, calf length and over the calf length.

Sport Socks

Sport socks are great for athletes, gym lovers, or anyone partaking in a high energy activity. They are equipped with moisture wicking fibers that help keep the foot and shoe dry. This fabric also helps prevent athlete’s foot and blisters. They come in ankle, no show, and crew varieties.

Work Socks

These types of socks are made to last. Usually, they are made out of cotton. Some work socks have nylon panels in the heel and the toe for reinforcement. During the winter, a work sock with wool or acrylic is usually best to keep feet warm.

Casual Socks

These socks are usually worn for everyday use or informal events. They came in many different fibers such as cotton, wool, nylon, and acrylic. Sometimes they are even blended with olefin and spandex to improve comfort and prevent moisture build up. They also come in all shapes, sizes colors, and varieties.
