Sock Size Guide

We are proud to offer many sizes of fun socks for men, women, and kids, and we understand that sizing can get a little confusing sometimes! Much like with shoes and other clothing, sizes can vary somewhat between brands. Use this handy guide to better understand the different sock sizes available.

Fun fact: Have you ever wondered what the 9-11 or 10-13 means on women's and men's socks? These numbers represent how many inches long your foot is, rather than your shoe size! Our sock size chart is specifically designed to help you find the best fit for men's, women's, and kids' socks.

Sock Size Guide

Women's Sock Sizes

A standard women's sock size is usually presented on sock packaging as "Size 9-11." This usually translates to a women's U.S. shoe size 5-10 (European 36-41, UK 3-8).

Men's Sock Sizes

A standard men's sock size is usually presented on sock packaging as "Size 10-13." This usually translates to a men's U.S. shoe size 8-12.5 (European 42-46, UK 7-12).

Large Socks for Men & Women

If you have larger feet than the standard sizes above, we've got you covered:

Men: For men who wear larger shoe sizes, we have a special collection of XL socks. These start at size 12 and range up to 16, depending on the brand. If you're shopping for XL men's socks, please check the size details on each product page to make sure the style will fit. These bigger socks are just as fun and funky as any we offer. No more plain white socks just because you have big feet!

Women: For women who wear shoes bigger than size 10, we recommend you try our men's socks. There is no difference in design between our men's and women's socks; men's are simply for a larger foot. Many of our most popular styles are available in both a men's and women's version.


Kids' Sock Sizes

All parents and caregivers know that kids' sizes are beyond confusing, and there's no exception with socks! Every brand has different distinctions, such as small and large, youth and junior.

We have organized the assortment of sizes into the following categories:

Baby socks are for newborns up to about 1 year old.

Toddler socks are for little ones about 1 to 4 years old who wear toddler shoe sizes 4 to 7.

Boys & Girls socks are for children about 5 to 10 years old who wear kids' shoe sizes 8 to 13 and then on up to a size 3.
