Socks Galore at Whole Earth!
With so many colors, designs and brands to choose from, we've picked out a few of our favorite socks for women, men, kids and for men and women to introduce you to our sock collection.
Socks for Women
Why should kids have all the fun? If you've ever looked at kids' socks and wished that they came in larger sizes, your prayers have been answered! Sock It To Me, has fun socks for kids of all ages. Dinosaurs are a perpetual favorite for kids' clothing of all kinds. And here, at last, are dinosaur socks for women! The Sock It to Me Women's Rawr-ler Rink Crew Socks, a T-Rex on roller skates, is a blend of 51% Polyester, 47% Cotton, and 2% Elastane. The socks are very pink and can raise a smile or provide a warning, depending on the day!
Like socks with designs, but perhaps with something a bit more sedate than roller skating T-Rexes? We're partial to the Darn Tough Women's Farmer's Market Crew Lightweight Lifestyle Socks. Carrots, spinach, flowers, garden tools, bees, a bunny and a grasshopper bedeck these comfy lightweight socks. Darn Tough socks are made to last with a blend of 58% Merino Wool, 38% Nylon, and 4% Lycra Spandex, and they're made with the planet and people in mind by a family-owned company in the U.S.
Smartwool socks have been a favorite with Whole Earth customers for years. From basic black everyday socks to no-shows, as well as socks for running and hiking, Smartwool makes beautiful comfortable socks for men, women and kids. The Smartwool Women's Hike Light Cushion Zig Zag Valley Mid Crew Socks are made of 56% Merino Wool, 11% Nylon, 31% Recycled Nylon, and 2% Elastane woven with a 4 Degree Elite Fit System that supports your feet where they need it most. The socks also offer light cushioning along the entire bottom of the foot, adding comfort to every step.
Socks for Men
Space is a popular theme in men's socks this year. You'll find socks with planets, a rocket, the NASA logo, and stars this season. We like the Life is Good Men's I Need Space Crew Socks. These are dual purpose socks. They reveal not only your love of planetary science and perhaps astrology but also that you just might like a little alone time away from the crowd. Life is Good has been making celebratory t-shirts for years. Made of a Cotton, Nylon and Spandex blend, these are comfortable everyday socks that can add a touch of humor to your wardrobe.
Here's another sock from Darn Tough, and it's an award winner: Men’s Health 2021 Outdoor Awards declared it their Best Hiking Sock! The Darn Tough Men's Number 2 Micro Crew Midweight Hiking Socks are made of a blend of 63% Merino Wool, 35% Nylon, and 2% Lycra Spandex. Merino Wool is fast drying, breathable and odor resistant for all-day comfort, cool in summer and warm in winter. The Number 2 Micro Crew also has terry loop cushioning under the foot. And don't forget, they're made with the planet and people in mind by a family-owned company in the U.S.
Looking for a multipurpose sock? Look no further than the Smartwool Men's Everyday Hiker Street Crew Socks. Wear them to work, for weekends or out on the trail. This sock is handsome and performs. They're made in the U.S. of imported materials: 64% Merino Wool, 34% Nylon, and 2% Elastane. The sock has an elasticized arch brace for a secure fit as well as cushioning on the bottom of the foot made of Merino Wool. Look good and stay comfortable in Smartwool!
Socks for Men and Women
Unisex socks are made for both men and women, so keep that in mind when choosing a size. Some of our favorites come from Pendleton. As ever, Pendleton has a gift for color and design. There are two types of blends available: a Cotton, Nylon, Spandex, Polyester blend as well as a Merino Wool, Polyester and Spandex blend. The Pendleton Wild Wonder Camp Socks are made of the lightweight Merino Wool blend. The design includes the Zuni Bear, a symbol of inner strength. Offer it as a gift to one you love.
Whole Earth has a healthy selection of running shoes and the socks to wear with them, some lightweight, some cushioned and some with toes! The Feetures Unisex Elite Max Cushion No Show Tab Socks offers targeted compression for a secure fit and maximum cushioning for impact protection. The sock rests below the ankle and the back tab provides blister protection for the heel. The Elite Max Cushion is made with a blend of 74% Polyester, 21% Nylon, and 5% Spandex. The Polyester is made from recycled plastic for sustainability. Feetures also offers No Show Tab socks with lightweight and no cushioning to suit your running style.
There's nothing quite like a classic whether it's cars, books, or in this case, hiking socks: the Smartwool Unisex Hike Classic Edition Light Cushion Crew Socks. This is the original Smartwool hiking sock created 25 years ago. It's knit in U.S. of an imported yarn blend of 56% Merino Wool, 11% Nylon, 31% Recycled Nylon, 2% Elastane. The recycled Nylon is a recent update but otherwise, these socks have withstood the test of time. The light cushioning covers the bottom of the foot, and there is an elasticized arch brace for a secure fit.
Socks for Kids
Add some holiday flair for the kids with the Little Blue House Kids Fair Isle Bear Socks in Balls. The combination of hearts, snowflakes, stars, bears and stripes in a bright white, red and gray Fair Isle pattern says winter is here! This crew sock is made of a blend of 55% Cotton, 44% Nylon, and 1% Spandex. And it comes packaged in a tin ornament style ball that you can hang on the tree. You may want to add a treat or a place a small toy inside it from year to year for a child to discover. You'll find a good selection of the Little Blue House Socks in Balls for the holidays in our stores and online.
Kids need hiking socks too! If you're heading out on the trail give them cushioned socks to keep their feet comfortable. The Smartwool Kids Margarita Medium Hiking Crew Socks are the kids' version of the adult Margarita stripes. Made of a blend of imported yarn that's 60% Merino Wool, 38% Nylon, and 2% Elastane, the socks are knit in the U.S. The midweight cushioning on the bottom of the sock doesn't add bulk so kids can wear these colorful socks with their regular shoes too!
You're never too young to experience the comfort of Smartwool Merino Wool socks. The Smartwool Baby Bootie Batch Socks combine beautiful eye-catching colors and patterns to surround those tiny feet in warmth and style! This trio of booties are knit in the U.S. from an imported yarn made of a blend of 43% Merino Wool, 52% Nylon and 5% Elastane. Fear not, Merino Wool does not scratch, so baby will be comfy.
