Classic calf socks in grey-blue: tried-and-tested soft cotton socks
Classic calf socks have been available in black since 1999, and can now also be purchased in grey-blue. High-quality Pima cotton means that the socks are long-lasting and very comfortable to wear. The ribbing provides the necessary support.

- 81% Pima cotton, 18% polyamide for strengthening, 1% elastane
- Finest high-quality Italian socks
I am not entirely blue and not entirely grey, but grey-blue. Being grey-blue, I go perfectly with everything: I am great with jeans, elegant with chinos and keep you looking fantastic. And I am not the only one – our other best-selling socks are also available in grey-blue.
Made in Italy
Exceptional socks like me, made from quality yarns, are born in northern Italy. I come from a small second-generation family business near Milan, so I am a north Italian. My origins represent elegance and quality, of which I am very proud.
Finest Pima cotton
I am made from elegant Peruvian Pima cotton. This high-quality cotton has particularly long, soft fibres, making me pleasingly soft yet still resilient. It is no coincidence that Pima cotton is also known as the silk of South America.
As a sock, I spend my days between shoes and feet. It is often tight, damp and warm with lots of friction. My high-quality cotton means that I survive this wear and tear without developing any holes. I am also strengthened with polyamide in the heel and sole area to protect against holes. The elastane is in my band so that I can nestle against your legs all day without slipping.
Millions of sales
BLACKSOCKS was launched in 1999 for me and my black brothers. We struck black gold. Classic calf socks have now been sold in their millions across more than 100 countries.
A pedigree like this is wonderful, but it also comes with its obligations. Ongoing quality controls therefore ensure that every single pair of socks turns out well and makes its wearer happy.
100% skin-friendly & allergy-tested
As a sock, I sit right next to your skin. This is a damp, warm environment with lots of friction. I understand that every foot wants to go around without any problems, so I am constantly submitting to checks and I can assure you that I am 100% skin-friendly and allergy-tested – with the certificate to prove it.
Tradition & progress
In November 1998, the future founders of BLACKSOCKS were trying to find the perfect socks for their sockscription concept. My Italian manufacturer has continually made small improvements, but at heart I am still the oldest sibling. But don’t get me wrong, I am not an old or tired sock: instead, I am a product which has matured and improved over time.
Also in black, anthracite, navy blue or brown
I was only created in 2017, but my siblings in other colours have been around for much longer. If you like dark socks then you can choose between black, navy blue, brown or anthracite. I might be the prettiest, but I would never want to argue with you over taste!
Socks with RFID
Since 2012 I have also been available in a smart version known as Smarter Socks. I can communicate with the internet via the Sock Sorter and an iPhone, making me probably the smartest sock in the world. Of course, something as smart as this only comes in black.
Clean socks even at 40 degrees
As a proud sock, I also want to be looked after. I most like being cleaned in a washing machine at 40 degrees and then hung out to dry. If the water is hotter, I will survive without a problem but I will age quicker. Tumble dryers are also not fundamentally a problem, but as for all cotton products they will shorten my lifespan.
If you cannot get enough of me or if you have better things to do than think about buying socks, you can have me as a sockscription.
As a sockscriber you will receive three pairs of exquisite socks (always the same) delivered free of charge to your door several times a year. No more sock shopping and no need to sort socks!
