Cotton Socks – Your Everyday Companions
Nature has given cotton many positive qualities that make it a particularly good material for cotton socks, including that it helps prevent sweaty feet. The delicate cotton fibers absorb moisture and are breathable. Nice to wear and easy to look after.
In an office chair or on the couch, our range offers cotton socks for business and leisure – whether you want to begin the working day with light calf socks or get the weekend off to a cheerful start with colorful sneaker socks.
How Many Types of Cotton Do You Know?
We don’t want our socks to be forced to travel the world before they are allowed to serve their purpose, so our cotton socks come from Italy, Germany and Turkey. The different fibers and processing techniques used produce three types of cotton socks.
- Mercerized cotton: this material is smoother, shinier and more stable than unprocessed cotton. The result is wash-proof, silky cotton socks with improved stability.
- Pima cotton: silky soft but still hard-wearing! Classic calf socks, our test-winners, are made from this fine material.
- Organic cotton: sustainable and fair-trade, guaranteed by the bioRe® quality seal. We use this material for our Urban Comfort range.
We discovered what cotton socks men like: the ones that need the least looking after. All our cotton socks are therefore also available as a sockscription.
Men’s Socks Made of 100% Cotton
Do you like the idea of completely natural socks? Our knee socks are 100% cotton. The extra-wide band ensures that the socks stay up, even without elastic. These go particularly well with a dinner jacket, tails, or an everyday business suit. We offer all feet from sizes 3½ to 15½ the chance to be enveloped in comfortable 100% cotton socks for men.
Colors to Suit You
The endless selection now available means that the term “cotton socks” has lost any clear meaning. Not all cotton is made equal, and it has been a long time since black was the only color we wore on our feet.
Top-quality socks can be more than your outfit’s icing on the cake. Take a look at our colorful socks, striped socks, and the varied patterns of our Funky Socks. Colorful socks have once again become a fashionable accessory, and can be combined to suit your mood, whims or personal style: from powder blue to pine green to fiery red. Give them a try!
Those looking for dark colors will find brown, anthracite and navy on offer alongside our classic black cotton socks.
Whether children, women or men, cotton socks are something you find in the wardrobes of people of all ages. Order cotton socks quickly and easily from the BLACKSOCKS online shop – individually, as a pack, or as a sockscription. We cover the shipping costs.
Red Socks for Men
The BLACKSOCKS bestsellers are also available in red. Classic calf socks are the perfect length and are made of 81% Pima cotton. Their ribbing means that they go perfectly with any outfit. Don’t want your red socks to be visible? Invisible Socks are made of 74% of the same cotton, and are short enough that they disappear completely into low shoes. Cotton, no ribbing, and just as great: Business light socks gain a smooth, bold red color from mercerization (“Fil d’Ecosse”), meaning that the color lasts for years of repeated washing.
All three types of red socks for men have an elastane band, keeping them safely in place and ensuring maximum lasting comfort.
Make a Statement with Red
Red socks can be worn much more often than you might think. There is no need to be scared of bold colors – view them as an opportunity. Red represents confidence, strength and efficiency. Skillfully combined, they provide a positive boost and counteract gray, unimaginative days.
Skillfully Combine Red Socks
Perfect with jeans or gray trousers and a shirt or blazer. With minimum effort, you can turn dark-blue suits, gray clothing or other subtly colored outfits into real eye-catchers with red socks. Wear tone-in-tone with a tie, breast pocket handkerchief, or scarf to offer a good impression inside and out. Our three types of red socks for men offer a variety of options for combining with other clothing to suit any occasion, dress code, or men’s fashion.
