Calf socks: our best-seller in black

Sought after for 15 years: calf socks in black

Experience the unique comfort of our ribbed calf socks. We use quality materials so the socks barely bobble and therefore last longer.

  • Millions of sales
  • Top test marks time after time, consistently GOOD
  • Originally only in black, now also in different colours
  • Since 2012 even including an internet connection: Smarter Socks

The calf socks are made in Northern Italy in accordance with the Oeko-Tex® Standard 100, so they are 100% skin-friendly and allergy tested. Made of 81% Peruvian Pima cotton, 18% polyamide and 1% LYCRA® fibre. The polyamide is used to reinforce the heel and toe areas.
Also available in plus sizes up to 52.

Series of good test results for best-seller

Since 1999, we have sold over 3 million socks, some of which have been tested by Swiss consumer magazine K-Tipp. The calf socks have been given an overall rating of "good" three times in a row. In 2008, consumer television show Kassensturz even ranked them number one. This means our calf socks have consistently been among the best socks in Switzerland since 2003.

By Sandy Valerio from East Northport, New York on 16-Jul-2015

The socks and boxer shorts are the finest I've ever purchased.

By Serge Natarajan from Avusy on 25-Jun-2015

Great product!

By Barry Elram from Herzelliyya, IL on 06-May-2015

First class international delivery service. Excellent quality. Very pleased.



By Martin Ammentorp from Vordingborg on 10-Mar-2015

Wonderful socks - I now nearly always use the black calf socks. Only downside is the price - even though I know I pay for quality I find the price a little on the steep side. But I keep buying them being very pleased with the tear and wear of the socks.

By Eric John Lyman from Roma on 10-Mar-2015

The products are of good quality and I use the sock I have during cold weather, but the delivery is unreliable. I had half an order fail to arrive and was never able to straighten it out with customer service. Despite the good quality, the overall experience was disappointing.

By Sharron McMillan from Sechelt, BC on 06-Mar-2015

My husband loves the new socks. And I must admit I am wearing one pair right now too. ;-) Comfy, light and they stay up without cutting off circulation. Looking forward to our next delivery.

By Julian Stampfli from Ostermundigen on 25-Feb-2015

Nice socks, fast delivery, awesome customer service.

By Philippe Maly from Le Mont-sur-Lausanne on 18-Feb-2015

Perfect socks quickly delivered

By Andy Ma from Las Vegas, NV on 23-Jan-2015

Nice and comfortable sock! It is great that socks are sold by a narrower size window rather than one size fits many as many companies are doing!

By Nathan Sanborn from Woodbridge, VA on 12-Jan-2015

A fantastic product that overshot my expectations. Came well packaged and ahead of its predicted delivery time period. I be happily utilizing them for long into the future. Would highly recommend.

By Steve Glangé from Bridel on 02-Dec-2014

great service since the very early days and a product selection which has evolved accordingly i.e. quality and content

By Alan Morgan from Merthyr tydfil on 01-Dec-2014

fabulous!customer service.

By Daniel RODELLAR from Lausanne on 27-Nov-2014

Very happy to receive the 3 pairs of Calf socks black (Classic) and so far so good! The purchasing process and fast delivery worked well. I'll recommend you!

By Robert Cassella from Leavenworth, KS on 26-Nov-2014

I was not satisfied with the fit and comfort of these socks from the first time I wore them. Please refund my purchase.

By Edmund Rayburn from Webster, NY on 24-Nov-2014

Best socks and service ever. I will never purchase any other sock from some other seller.

By David WEBER from WADSWORTH, OH on 21-Nov-2014

The way you treat a customer could make plain average socks feel like spun gold. Thanks for the excellent product, its delivery and packaging, and your professional transaction. Unless you do something to change it, customer for life.

By Hendrik Ilves from Tallinn on 15-Nov-2014

Oh so so. Why is the price so high ? Because quality not in balance with the price. Sorry,it is my own opinion.

By Leroy Persoon from Coquitlam, BC on 14-Nov-2014

Arrived quickly and quality seems comparable to other socks I have had for probably 7 years. Will buy more in the future.

By Ivan Marrero from San Juan, PR  on 13-Nov-2014

Great socks. nice, soft and light. will continue buying.

By Edmund Rayburn from Webster, NY on 05-Nov-2014

Best service and socks I have ever had. Will always purchase my socks from this company. Many thanks!

By Catherine Mumford from Lewes on 31-Oct-2014

Blacksocks are the best - good quality and good fit.

By Fred Krauthamer from Monterey Park, CA on 27-Oct-2014

The quality of the cotton is beyond expectations. I whish you had a crew sock in this quality. Love the fit, they're very comfortable

By Joseph Rusinovich from Los Angeles, CA on 14-Oct-2014

Had a few trial pairs, and have now switched to subscription. Very good quality, very good to wear. Definitely good value for the money. I no longer have to worry about my supply of socks... :-)

By Artem Ivanov from Moscow on 15-Jul-2014


By Goddard Philip from Lakewood, CO on 03-Jun-2014

The problem is they are really thin and collect lent easily. However I do wear them each week and so far they are holding up ok.

By Christian Looser from Zürich on 18-Mar-2014


By John Grimes from London on 02-Sep-2013

The socks I got were very nice, they felt very comfortable and looked great. The only problem was they tore fairly quickly.

By Ronald Potthoff from Walchwil on 08-Feb-2013

The easiest and best way to good new socks :)

By Kurt S. from Sils on 06-Feb-2013

... I hardly manage to unpack my new sock deliveries because the quality is so good the old ones last too long ...

By Barry O from New York, NY on 02-Dec-2012

Best socks ever. Worth every penny! They last and don't lose color. Have been a customer since you guys had only black. So glad you expanded the colors...

By Marcel B. from Wädenswil on 20-Jan-2012

I am using (only) blacksocks since 10 month and they are the best socks I have ever had. Really great!

By Rich Riley from Prangins on 22-Nov-2011

You have a great product and I'm a happy evangelist of it.

By Nader A. from Manama, Isa Town on 17-Nov-2011

I would like to commend you on an excellent world-class service and your socks are just great! I enjoy wearing them. Best regards Nader
