The Comfiest Socks to Sport This Winter
Your feet deserve it.
With temperatures dropping, we just want to get warm and cozy – and some of the key pieces to achieve a comfortable winter look are socks. Either as part of the fireplace decoration or an unexpected Secret Santa present, socks are definitely a holiday staple. Whether you need some gift ideas or just want to give your feet a well-deserved rest, here are VMAN’s favorite socks for this season.

A summer favorite, the tie-dye pattern can bring a colorful pop to winter, too. These crew socks are reinforced on the toe and heel and come in a stretch fit. Shop them at Stussy.com for $15.

A spin on Nike’s classic ankle socks, the SNKR Sox have extra cushioning at the toe and heel that help absorb impact and provide maximum comfort, with the “Just Do It” slogan knit on the fabric. Available on Nike.com for $18.
Uniqlo Color Socks
The Japanese brand has become known for its minimalistic, durable designs, and it couldn’t be different with these socks. Available in multiple colors, they have a slightly tighter fit, in addition to what they call a “self-deodorizing” feature. Shop them for $4 at Uniqlo.com.
