After hours of research I found the perfect non-cotton summer sock for us ‘tween sizers
If you listened to the podcast you heard about my frustration with the way socks are sold and marketed.
Business Idea- Sock Sizes For The In Between Guy (Shoe Size 11-13) Drives me nuts.
Shoe Size 6 – 12½
Sock Size 10-13
Shoe size 12 – 16
Sock Size 13 – 15
As you can see from the chart above, shoe sizes 6-12.5 get one size sock and shoe size 12-16 get a different size sock. So if you wear anywhere from an 11 to a 13 you’re really in no-man’s land. Order the smaller size and your foot is squished into a sock that’s comfortable for a size 9 or so. Order the larger sock meant for shoe size 12-16 and they’re falling down and too loose because they’re designed to fit up to a 16 shoe size.
It’s very frustrating. On top of that options are further limited for non-cotton socks. Cotton is the absolute worst material to use for socks as it doesn’t wick away any moisture and has zero antimicrobial properties.
After about an hour of research on Amazon I found the perfect non-cotton summer socks for us sock size ‘tweeners.
I ordered them and they were delivered within two days with Amazon Prime. Size- perfectly comfortable for my size 12 feet. Wore them the next day under my work boots and they held up perfectly, no sagging. I ordered another four pack right when I got home. It’s rare when you find something that works just perfectly for me but when I do I like to lock it down. Much like the best knife values in the world, the Victorinox which I replaced our Henkles steak knives with because they are so far superior. When something works perfectly and is a great value you just can’t believe how much better they make your life and you load the boat.
