Everyday Essentials Meet Everyday Comfort

Our Essential Comfort category was carefully designed to offer a unique assortment of socks that support everyday health and wellness. There’s nothing better than when utility and function meet comfort and style. So, we took the everyday sock to the next level with an optimized performance fit in modern designs and an extensive color palette.

When browsing our Essential Comfort socks, you’ll notice our eye-catching designs including stripes, solids, and patterns, but that’s just what you see on the surface.

Here are just a few reasons why you’ll love our Essential Comfort socks.
 

Year-Round Comfort, Thanks to our Merino Wool Blends

We’ve designed two custom-crafted yarn blends that we use in our sock that will allow you to stock your sock drawer with socks that perform for you no matter the time of year or the weather.

Merino Wool and Bamboo Socks

We like to think of our signature merino wool and bamboo rayon blend as the perfect pairing, and it’s pretty hard to dispute. Our superfine merino wool provides natural thermoregulation and moisture control, plus it’s environmentally friendly and renewable. We spin our merino wool with bamboo rayon to add a beautiful sheen and softness, as well as enhanced breathability. Once knit into your favorite sock, our merino wool and bamboo rayon blended yarns help to keep your feet warm and cozy in cooler temperatures, and dry and comfortable in warmer temperatures.

Merino Wool and Alpaca Socks

Our other signature yarn is our Merino Wool and Alpaca blend. We further enhanced the natural benefits of merino wool yarn when we developed our custom merino wool and alpaca blend. Think of Alpaca as merino wool on steroids. Alpaca is ultra-soft and incredibly durable, and when spun with our superfine merino wool, it becomes a super yarn wonderful softness combined with great durability. While alpaca wool offers amazing insulation in cooler months, the fiber’s thermoregulation, moisture management, and breathability make it the perfect year-round fiber when perfectly blended with superfine merino wool.

If you’re trying to decide between merino wool/bamboo rayon or merino wool/alpaca, we recommend trying both. Both offer fantastic benefits for year-round wear, so it’s generally a matter of personal preference. However, if you’re shopping for socks to wear in primarily cold and wet climates­–like a ski trip or high-altitude hiking and camping–our alpaca wool blend’s ability to adapt from warm to cold weather is unsurpassed in its ability to absorb moisture and provide warmth even in the harshest climates.
 

Personal Style on Display or Tucked Away

Whether you are looking for wonderful basics or beautiful designs, we have you covered. We offer a little bit of everything to suit your personal style and ever-changing wardrobe.

Our no-show and micro socks are designed to fit perfectly within low profile shoes and sneakers. There’s a style for when you want to show off a little sock at the top as well as styles for completely hidden options, such as the Undercover–our best-selling no show sock that actually stays up all day long. We also have quarter and crew height socks ranging from simple solids to classic stripes and sophisticated patterns.

Whatever your personal style, show it off with a pair of Sockwell Essential Comfort socks.

We love athletic socks for their durability, contoured fit, and performance. What if we took all those features and wrapped them in a stylish sock for everyday use?

  • Arch support? Check.
  • Contoured fit? Check.
  • Y-Heel Construction? Check.
  • Seamless Toe Closure? Check.

Throughout our Essential Comfort category, you’ll find women’s and men’s socks that perform as well as your favorite pair of athletic socks, so you never have to compromise on fit and performance to showcase your personal style.
 

The Sockwell Soft Top Promise

Introducing the Sockwell Soft Top Promise: a new, softer fit for your comfort. As sock architects, we recognized that typical casual and dress sock typically have a major flaw. The age-old construction used by other sock companies results in socks with the tightest elastic at the widest part of the leg. We suppose the logic was simply: to help the sock stay up. But this construction isn’t comfortable for anyone. Additionally, these same socks are often constructed using only nylon as the superstructure throughout the leg and foot and as a result fail to maintain their shape over the course of the day.

So, we decided to fix the long-standing issue of tight tops by re-engineering our Essential Comfort socks to include:

  • Non-binding tops
  • Super-soft elastic
  • A more contoured fit

Our Soft Top Promise means you will experience an all-day fit that’s truly comfortable, from the moment you pull them. Whether you are wearing them on long walks, for hours of lounging, during long workdays, or for a little well-earned R&R, they will fit and feel great!

Made for everyday wear, whatever your lifestyle. Live, work, and play in Essential Comfort.
