A sock is footwear which is worn inside shoes to make one feel safe. Our feet are probably the largest sweat-producing areas of our body. So one often has to feel more selective with socks for loafers, thus giving birth for the concept of custom socks, that is a sock made custom for specific need. They're socks which one can customize in line with the size, shape, color, logo, designs, models and materials.

Where Needed-

These are definitely needed and ordered large quantities (usually a minimum of 50 pairs of the same model) to the companies that make then sell them and therefore are required mostly by various institutes like schools, colleges, offices, cheerleading teams, teams etc. and sometimes even for family reunions or promotional gifts as a part of a uniform.

General Models-

Custom socks have three main basic models (generally) where one can customize based on their needs. They are ankle or quarter socks, crew socks and tube socks. An ankle sock might be found in two size variations: one slightly bigger than the other (employed by mainly cyclists, basketball players and runners). A crew sock is calf-length (used usually by tennis players) plus a tube sock can be a knee-length one (used widely in sports like soccer, hockey, softball, baseball and through cheerleaders and air hostesses) and it is the most popular amongst these socks.


Customized socks are manufactured by large organizations depending on orders. Once the model and design is selected by the customer and the prices are arranged, the manufacturers start the process (sometime they might accept a set up fee). As the delivery generally must be done within 6-8 weeks, machines certainly are best approach for making these socks. That is why a factory full of knitting machines and experienced machinists is definitely a normal sight for a real customized sock manufacturer. Within this context it is critical to know that you will find fake custom socks, too as well as the real ones can't ever have logos and designs embroidered upon it.

Sometimes there might be another point worth mentioning. Custom sock manufacturers often use overseas factory (naturally in the poor country) to make use of the cheap labour available there. Sometimes some manufacturers mention in their website the task place for their company. However that information might just as well be untrue. If this issue is matters to you, it's safer to look for a company that uses a workforce you might be comfortable with.

Custom sock manufacturers is often decisive (mostly on the price issue) as a result of lack of transparency within the processes. Moreover, the dishonest ones often have a tendency to embroider logos around the general models, making the socks not just a general one. While placing orders, you ought to keep an eye open during these regards!
