When you’re going to be on your feet for long periods of time, you want socks that will hold up to the abuse. Socks that make your feet feel more comfortable are a bonus! We’ve done our research to gather this list of the best and most comfortable socks for long hours at work. These socks are cushioned, comfortable, and ready to make your life a little easier! First, here are some things you should know.
Gender: This refers to the sizing on the socks more than anything else. Sometimes the colors can lean toward a specific gender, but for the most part, the only difference is sizing. Convert your normal sock size to use either.
Length: How long are they? Some of the socks on this list come up past the ankle, while others come to the mid-calf or else cover your entire calf. This will change based on your height, but it’s a general estimate.
Number of Pairs: You need to know how many pairs will come in the package that you buy. This can help you determine if the socks are worth the price based on how many pairs you’re actually getting. Boost your collection!
Thermal: Thermal socks are specifically constructed to keep your feet toasty during cold months. They use your own body heat to keep your feet from freezing. You generally won’t want to wear these during the summer, so this is important.
Color: What color are they? Some of the socks on our list come in packs of assorted colors so you don’t have to commit to just one. Black and white are the favorite individual sock colors, however.
Material: The material that the socks are made of is super important. You’ll want to know how they handle sweat and how they will feel on your feet, and this information will help determine those factors.
Now that you know all there is to know about work socks (or, indeed, any socks), we can get to our list. Our top pick and budget pick are our favorites, and these highlights should be checked out first if you’re short on time. Otherwise, take a stroll through some of the sock selections we’ve chosen to find the socks that are best for you and your tired feet.
