been running out of good socks. had to throw a bunch out. only got a dozen left. even some of these i should toss. i have had 1 pair of stance socks which lasted 6 years lol. (worth the money i feel) and the rest were hanes which are good for about a year or two then go bad after that. anyone else recommend good socks? are vans socks good?

I was using nothing but Active shop socks but I recently got a bunch of free smart wool socks and I cant go back to anything else.

Vans seem to be quite tight/constricting, but I don't have dainty feet, so maybe they're pretty normal for others. I had to give mine away that I bought.
I'd recommend Volcom Vibes or True socks. They're pretty comfortable and durable. As for non-skateboarding socks, I have no idea. I haven't worn anything that wasn't Stance, DC, or Volcom in years.

I wear rainbow flip flops 95% of the time. you know what I'm talking about.

but see, my right foot is perpetually swollen/slightly larger than the left. Wearing socks with sneakers makes them too cramped most of the time.

I do buy good socks for wearing boots though. Gotta be wool. REI brand are decent, Darn Tough are good too.

Ain't cheap, but I'm rocking these:

Breathable on top, heavy cushion on the ball/heel, tight around the arch (they're runner socks). They really help take up the slack on some of the iller fitting shoes (like Vans).

These are also killer: I use them for workouts and skating (summer)

For slip-ons, Vans no shows.

Darn Toughs and other REI hiking socks. Im a pretty sweaty dude and it definitely translates to sweaty feet. The lightweight wool socks help with that

yup. also, if you have an REI near you, buy em there and enjoy your lifetime of hassle free returns/exchanges for new pairs if they actual wear out.

Nike everyday socks 10 bucks for 6 pairs at the outlets whatever that % of cotton is what works for me. Anything less than whatever % those are make my feet sweat so bad

I bought some Carhartt socks from the super market recently and they're really secure and comfy. All of my Stance socks ripped pretty quickly and all my other brands always stretch out.

Ive been running the same Hanes black crew socks from Walmart for many years but as of recently quality seems to have taken a dip with holes forming much faster. May be time to update my sock game on some of these recommendations

Im a suit so I only have suit socks but they skate just fine.

Are there socks with integrated cushions/pads around and above the ankles?

Carhartt's padded socks are nice for that. Not a full blown piece of protective gear or anything, but definitely more substantial than regular socks. Socks drive me crazy since i sit in between shoe sizes, so the padding or lack thereof really affects of my shoes fit.

I'm a no socks if it's hot guy but have started wearing business style socks. if people are looking for something that feels pretty barefoot  (no extra padding, not to hot or thick) I recommend bonds cotton business socks. They are cheap but good quality I have some pairs that are a few years old now and don't annoyingly fall down but also don't leave any marks on my shins. The stitches don't fuck with my toes either.

So hard to find good socks, specifically ones that will fit the shoe I am wearing at the time without making it too baggy or too tight.
Once Ive found the right pair, Ill run them until they are full of holes and my wife gives me shit for wearing homeless man socks

i really recommend wool socks for the sweaty feet folks. wool helps your body regulate temperature whether its hot or cold. i also noticed it has a natural cushioning ability.

as far as protective socks, footprint socks work pretty damn well if you just cant deal with shinners and whacks to the ankle. they were partially made of bamboo too i think? which felt a little more dry compared to cotton

Stance socks are good, the thicker ones.

Just recently got a really nice pair of adidas ones from Ross, they go super high but they are really soft and medium thickness.

Merino Wool socks are the answer. I know that darn tough and icebreaker have lifetime warranties. Depending how often you do laundry all you need are 7 pairs and you never have to buy socks again lol. Not to mention they don't hold scent at all, I've had long skates in mine and let them air out overnight and worn them the next day stank free

The exact geographical location of skateboarding's core is directly under the DC logo at the Rob Dyrdek Plaza in Kettering Ohio.
