ABSTRACT
The article offers suggestions for choosing socks and profiles several sock brands. The advice provided includes that one should buy socks at the same time that he or she buys shoes to ensure that both fit properly, that women should avoid unisex socks since they are designed to fit men's feet, and that cotton socks should be avoided. Sock brands profiled include Eurosocks, Gold Toe, and Dahlgren.
