Hey, guys! Do your socks lose their shape easily? Do they bunch up or slip down? What do your feet smell like after a long day at work?
If you’re used to wearing the kind of socks that come in a 10 pack, you might not know (or believe) that socks can be different. We’ve rounded up the best socks for men that are designed specifically for male feet, and are made from durable, high-quality materials.
Best Socks for Men: Sock Features
Scientific studies have shown that male and female feet differ in more than just size. Brands like Darn Tough and Smartwool engineer socks specifically for male feet, with gender-specific features like vent panels, arch support, and footbed padding.
The best socks for men are made from high-quality materials like natural merino wool or high-tech synthetic fibers. These materials wick sweat away from the skin and release moisture back into the air, keeping feet dry. Feet that stay dry smell better! Merino also has natural antibacterial properties which fight odor.
Merino Wool blended with high-tech synthetic fibers create a fabric which resists sagging and bagging. Fabrics that keep their shape means your socks stay put, preventing blisters. Durable fabrics mean you can wear and wash a pair of socks more frequently without worrying about wearing them out! While you might spend more money upfront, high-quality socks last longer and have better guarantees, saving your feet and your cash in the long run.
Best Socks for Men
Darn Tough Men’s Hiker ¼ Cushion Sock - €17.00 / €12.75
“I bought these socks for my son for Christmas. After one week, you folks sent me this e.mail. And wanted to know how I like them. Well, I called my son....He said,"These are the Greatest socks I have ever had.". They keep his feet from sweating, and they don't stink. He has actually worn them for a whole week without washing them. Didn't need to he says. But he did finally. Thank you for making such a wonderful sock. This was a great gift. Sincerely, Trini Barnes.” Thanks Trini
Darn Tough Men’s Hiker Micro Crew Cushion Sock - €21.95 / €15.00
“I have a few pairs of the men's hiker micro crew cushion and I wear them for everything. I wear them to the gym, on the trail, and with dress boots. I have worked my three pairs harder than any socks I currently own with zero change to their quality, fit, or feel. My only regret is not having a pair for every day of the week. I will be ordering more ASAP. Worth buying a pair to try! I would recommend to anyone!” Thanks Steve B.
“Best socks I own. I was looking for some quality socks that looked good, kept my feet warm and would last. Most new socks are of such poor quality no matter the price I feel like I'm being ripped off. The Darn Tough socks are nice and light but keep my feet warm and feeling dry. I will definitely be buying more.” - Thanks Christopher
Darn Tough Men’s Vertex Ultralight No Show Sock - €16.00 / €12.00
Great Socks, for running and general wear.” Thanks Michael C.
“Since my husband began wearing wool socks, he refuses to wear anything else! His feet perspire and at first was very reluctant to wear wool when his feet were already hot. But when he discovered the excellent wicking and drying properties of these socks, he was sold! Now he wears them for dressy attire, casual attire, work socks, camping socks...everything. We buy the varying styles and weights appropriate for the activity and have never been disappointed. What a great investment.” Thanks Pam
“Best sock I have ever used. I ordered a pair of these socks a couple of weeks ago just to see how they were. I wore them for a week before I made my decision to buy anymore. These socks are by far the best I have ever had. They are virtually tailor-made for my foot. Nice and thin, comfortable and my feet were not hot and sweaty. I've never paid this much for socks, but they are so nice I just ordered 6 more pair.” - Thanks Warren.
