Toe socks: You either love them or hate them.
I happen to love them. I’ll say it loud and proud. I often wear them with shoes, but I have no shame when it comes to pairing them with flip flops on a chilly day. As long as my feet stay dry, I’ll wear this combo year round. And, of course, toe socks are the yin to the toe shoe’s yang.
Overall, I like my toe socks warm, thick and donning creative designs. Perhaps you prefer your toe socks to be thin with a solid color scheme. Or, maybe you love toe shoes and want toe socks that are thin, breathable and keep your feet dry. Or you might want a pair that separates your big toe from all of your other toes (perfect for flip flops). No matter your preferences, there’s a perfect pair of toe socks for you.
With all this in mind, I put together a list of some of the best toe socks out there. They range from long to short, full to half toe, thin to thick. They come in a variety of colors and patterns for both men and women. Check them out and find your new favorite pair of toe socks!
These multi-designed toe socks come in an assorted pack of 12 pairs with either a feminine or masculine color scheme. The tube sock design fits most teens and adults. Depending on shoe and calf size, reviewers were pleased with the long length of the socks. (Generally land about mid-calf.) They are thicker than men’s dress socks, but not super thick, so they are comfortable to wear with toe shoes. Some reviewers were disappointed because they received duplicate colors and designs, but they are still great for mixing and matching. At around $2.50 per pair, they are a great deal, whether you are keeping them all or sharing them with another toe sock lover.
