Expert Advice

Athletic socks should promote a more stable fit within your shoe or cleat. They should also provide an important barrier from chafing, irritation and rubbing.

The latest athletic socks are crafted from technical materials that wick away sweat and allow for excellent breathability. Keep in mind these factors when selecting your sport-specific socks:

  • Baseball, lacrosse, soccer and football socks often fit higher up the leg for added protection as you play. Basketball socks can come with a high or low-cut fitted collar.
  • Yoga socks often come with specialized grips along the bottom for better traction in the studio.
  • Golf socks are lightweight and breathable. Some include light padding woven into the sock for extra cushion on the course.
  • Socks cut for an anatomical right and left-foot fit provide supreme comfort
  • Contoured, EVA footbeds provide a comfortable fit and adequate shock absorption for quick footwork.
  • Seamless socks are ultra-comfortable for long wear.
  • A light Achilles tab keeps this high-wear area free from irritation.
  • You can select sport-specific socks in a variety of colors and designs to match your teammates or stand out on the court.
