Different types of socks
Knowing the composition of the socks is only a small part of Choosing good socks. It is normal for socks of different styles and designs in different seasons to vary in length, thickness, and texture due to differences in style, material, and workmanship. This article gives you a little more information on sock styles.
Low Cut socks are very short socks, so short that the socks are invisible or only visible at the edge of the sock when worn with shoes. They are also called “ankle socks” or “boat socks” because they reach up to the ankle, and in Taiwan, they are mostly called “invisible socks” because they are usually invisible when you wear shoes. There are three types of boat socks: super shallow for high heels or single shoes, medium shallow for beans, and low shallow for sports shoes. They are suitable for summer with a variety of single shoes or sneakers, etc. Not only do they avoid the embarrassment of showing socks, but they also reveal the ankle and instep, which is a good way to elongate the leg line.
The quarter socks, with their tube near the ankle, are the most common style in life. It is a sock with an ankle length that wraps around the whole or half of the ankle when worn, reducing friction between the foot and the shoe, keeping the foot warm, and absorbing foot sweat. It is suitable for wearing trousers or boots and can avoid rubbing on the heel.
Crew socks are socks with a length of 5 to 10 cm above the ankle, a little longer than quarter socks. It keeps the feet warmer and absorbs feet sweat better. Of course, there are also long crew socks and short crew socks. Most crew socks are worn with high-top shoes, such as high-top trainers, short boots, and short leather shoes. With the increase in the number of mid-calf socks available, they are becoming more and more popular as a fashion accessory and are being worn on more and more occasions.
Knee-high socks are a type of sock that, as the name suggests, reach approximately below the knee and cover the entire calf when worn, and are mostly made of cotton or nylon. It is also standard equipment for school uniforms in many areas.
Most of the socks worn with student uniforms are cotton knee-high socks in dark colors (black, navy blue) and white, depending on school rules or school-style fashions.
For working women, there are many knee-high stockings in a variety of patterns; for young girls, they mainly wear black knee socks that slim the calves.
These two types of socks are the most popular on the street at the moment.
Pantyhose, also known as leggings, tights, or stocking trousers, are garments that wrap tightly around the torso from the waist to the feet. Formerly designed for men, pantyhose were a basic part of European men’s clothing from the eighth to the seventeenth and even the mid-eighteenth centuries.
Today, most pantyhose are designed to be worn by women and some by men. As with stockings, there are many different materials: core silk, velvet, cotton, nylon, wool blends, etc. Pantyhose appeared in the 1960s and became an alternative to stockings as an underwear option. Pantyhose designed for women are generally positioned to show off the feminine lines of the feet in a way that pantyhose designed for men are not.
Depending on the position, they are divided into T-seam pantyhose, bikini pantyhose, overstuffed panty-hose, gap pantyhose, maternity overstuffed pantyhose, and pantyhose; depending on the foot, they are divided into open-toe pantyhose, heel pantyhose, and nine-quarter pantyhose.
Toe socks have a design at the toe that allows the toes to be individually snapped on so that each toe is separated when worn. This design allows each toe to move freely and reduces the squeeze between the toes, thus improving blood circulation. In addition, it is very strong in terms of insulation. The toe socks can be worn under shoes and can be worn with flip-flops and sandals without any problems. It’s also a great way to show off the contours of your toes by wearing them under your sandals.
Choosing socks is also a big learning curve. Different occasions require different types of socks. Take notes after reading this, so you can use it when you need it later.
