Most likely, at some point in your life, you have worn socks. Sure, there are times when we wear sandals, but if you've ever worn shoes, chances are you've worn socks. While crazy socks are continually growing in popularity, custom best sock subscriptions have been just as popular. The type of socks.

To keep things simple, we'll cover the 3 basic types of socks:

1. Ankle socks

Ankle socks, as you may have guessed, go down to the ankle. These are standard socks. While they are very common, these are not always the best to personalize as they don't allow much room for an actual custom design.

2. Sports socks

Crew socks are very popular for original and custom socks. Crew socks are designed to reach the mid-calf. This allows more space with the custom design, but not so high that it goes beyond the knee.

3. Knee socks

Knee-high socks, as you may have guessed, go up to the knee or a little higher. These tend to be popular for athletic sports like softball or baseball, or parties, festivals, or for those who enjoy knee-high socks.

Which one should you order?

We always recommend ordering crew socks for custom orders as they allow enough room for a full custom design, but are not as knee-high, which many people don't wear on a typical occasion. Crew socks can be worn both at work and casually, making them more practical.

Be sure to check the material type of the sock as well, as a material like 100% cotton will be very different than a sock that is 100% polyester, in terms of how it is worn and also how it is printed.

For example, some companies can only print words, while others can make complete images. It is always best to ask to see the previous work that the company has completed, to make sure they can do the type of custom sock design that interests you.
