The Best Men’s Socks for the Change from Summer to Fall


You can’t always opt for sandals during hot weather, and that’s what makes the purchase of breathable socks a must for any man who does work that requires a closed-toed shoe. A hot, sweaty foot is a breeding ground for microscopic critters that can cause athlete’s foot, yeast infections, toenail fungus, and unpleasantly smelling feet. Fortunately, sock tech has expanded to meet the needs of runners, hikers, and office workers alike to make breathable socks that keep feet healthy during the summer. Of course, socks like these are best worn when it is consistently warm outside and do not consider the temperature influxes that are typical of early autumn weather. When mornings are chilly, days are warm, and nights are cold it can make picking out the best footwear for the day a challenge.

Now, combine weather problems with fashion problems and it’s easy to see why planning for that space between summer and autumn is best done with the help of sock experts. Here are some of the best types of men’s dress socks and men’s novelty socks to get you through the changing of the seasons.

  1. Fall-Themed Men’s Novelty Socks

For those whose job allows them to spend most of their time inside, a full-scale study on the different types of climate-controlled socks might not be in order. However, it’s still crucial to think about what type of socks are best for the change of seasons. Autumn is an especially hard time for those who suffer from seasonal affective disorder when depression symptoms rear their ugly head again. Even for those who do not suffer from seasonal affective disorder, the fall can be a hard time. But studies show that livening up your routine can be beneficial to your mood. Whether you opt for a subtle fall color or a bright and wild printed mid-calf  sock, novelty can be just what you need to beat the fall office blues. The range of humorous and topical designs will get the conversation started at the water cooler.

  1. Bamboo Crew Socks

Crew socks are versatile, able to be worn with both pants and shorts for a seamless style. However, not all crew socks are made alike. Whereas cotton is avoided by outdoorsmen and hikers for its inability to shed sweat, bamboo is moisture-wicking. This means that your feet stay dry and warm during the coolest parts of the day and wick sweat away from your feet in the hottest parts of the day. Since the end of summer usually means no more leaving stinky shoes on the porch to dry, moisture-wicking socks will prevent the stink in the first place and save your space from the wrath of your feet.

  1. Merino Wool Socks

If you’re a fan of SmartWool socks, then you’ve felt merino wool before. This deliciously smooth wool type is a popular favorite among backpackers because of its ability to regulate warmth and temperature. In cooler temperatures, it does an excellent job of insulating the foot and preventing it from cooling down too much. In the heat of the day, its moisture-wicking properties do a fine job of keeping the foot cool. Another ideal for hikers and backpackers is its lightweight nature. Pick a crew sock for most versatility, and don’t forget that merino wool socks are often found in men’s novelty sock collections.

  1. Olefin Socks

With autumn always comes a little rain, and there’s nothing worse than having to sit in a pair of rain-soaked socks all day long. That’s where olefin fiber socks can help. Olefin is a synthetic fiber that is used by many athletes and outdoorsmen because it was designed to keep water away from the feet. Better than this, it wicks water away from the body, so unlike rainboots, it won’t cause your feet to work up into a sweat. For the fall, olefin socks are great because they are thick enough to keep feet warm in the coolest parts of the day and thin enough to ensure that they are kept cool when that afternoon sun comes out. What else would you expect from creators who won a Nobel Peace Prize in Physiology?

  1. Copper Compression Socks

Compression socks come with the incorrect notion that only people with medical issues wear or use these types of socks. In reality, copper compression socks are highly sought after for those with habitually cold feet, which makes them perfect for cooling fall weather. Copper socks offer wicking like the previously-listed sock types, which ultimately prevents issues like athlete’s foot and fungal infections that are common. Copper-infused socks are designed to enhance circulation, and poor circulation is a contributor to cold feet. Best of all, these socks feel like normal men’s socks, so it’s not changing up the way your socks feel, merely the way your feet feel. Copper-infused crew socks are a favorite in those with cold feet but are available in many different styles.

  1. Coolmax Socks

Coolmax is a trademarked synthetic yarn that is geared specifically toward creating a comfortable and dry experience within the shoe. Runners often swear by Coolmax, because ultimately, the biggest factor in keeping feet climate controlled is keeping them dry. The creators of Coolmax pride themselves in having one of the fastest-wicking materials in the synthetic fiber business, which prevents feet from becoming cold in the first place. Many styles are available in these fabrics, though the most-bought are the no-show socks for athletes.

The verdict on men’s socks for the change from summer to fall? It really depends on what type of lifestyle you live.

For athletes, it might be worthwhile to invest in many pairs of good synthetic, moisture-wicking socks that will allow you to work out without the pain. For hikers or outdoorsmen, merino socks remain the sock of choice because of their lightweight nature. But for those on a budget, a good fall-themed men’s novelty sock will help you step into the fall in fashion, all while potentially warding off any sort of fall malaise.

Kids Novelty Socks from Foot Traffic Make Back to School More Fun

imageskids pizza


It’s time for the kiddos to get ready for the new school season, and that means it’s time for back to school shopping. Time to go through last year’s clothes and shoes and assess the inventory. How much still fits (the answer: probably none of it); how much is worn out (probably half of it); and how much can be passed down to little sis or little bro (whatever piddling pieces are left)? What needs to be purchased for this year? And where did all the socks go? We can’t help with much of your back to school shopping needs, but we can help with that last part, the part about the socks. When it comes to socks, Foot Traffic has the kids’ feet covered.


We can help with this other thing, too: getting kids to put their socks on. Any parent who’s ever been late dropping the kids off at school because they had challenges getting them to put their shoes and socks on know what a critical component of the getting-dressed-in-the-morning process this is. Parents will be happy to hear that Foot Traffic comes to the rescue during back to school shopping days with a wide selection of charming, fun kids socks that kids will want to put on. In fact, they’ll have their socks on their feet before you even tell them to. We guarantee it. Yes, these socks are that much fun to wear.


Socks with Personality

Kids novelty socks from Foot Traffic come in bunches of fun patterns, colors, and designs, and your children will have a great time picking out their favorites. Will it be party animals or penguins? Fossils or unicorns? Toe socks, 3D socks, or regular socks? Foot Traffic has all these and much more for your little ones’ little tootsies. Soft and comfortable, these socks stay on and don’t stretch out of shape. Foot Traffic uses high-quality materials that expand and contract, breathe, protect, and feel comfortable on little feet. No chafing, scrunching, or wadding up underfoot. These socks keep feet cool, dry and comfy. And they come with a built-in added bonus for Mom and Dad– the variety of patterns make them easy to match up on laundry day!


Foot Traffic has socks that match nearly every personality, style, hobby and activity. They come in both kids’ and youth sizes. Kids’ sizes are for the little ones 4 – 7 years old with shoe sizes from 10 to 1Y. Youth sizes are for children a little older, 7 – 10 years old with shoe sizes ranging from 12 – 5Y. Most of Foot Traffic’s fun children’s socks come in both sizes, so if you have little ones who like to match their older siblings, we’ve got their piggies covered. Wait, did we mention piggies? Check out the Kids When Pigs Fly Socks and the Youth Pig 3D Sock while you’re thinking about it.


Socks that Make Your Kids Stand Out

Let’s take a look at how these fun socks from Foot Traffic fit into your children’s day. Kids who like snack time will have fun choosing from the Kids Donuts Socks, Youth Taco Socks, Kids Gingerbread Socks or Youth Ice Cream Socks. For a snack and activity double-whammy, put your littles in Kids Popcorn Socks the next time you go out to see a movie. If it’s Shark Week at school, your children will be the talk of the playground when they show up sporting a pair of Youth Shark Socks. Or, for extra credit, put them in a pair of Youth Shark Bite 3D Socks. They’ll be the envy of all their friends!


For those budding young creative arts majors, your children will have fun painting, singing, and dancing in Kids Artist Socks, Youth Piano Socks, or Youth Ballet Socks. Just make sure you encourage them to keep up their practice schedule or they may run into Big Treble with the teacher!


Socks that Tickle their Toes

Toe socks are another style that kids have a lot of fun with. These children’s novelty socks come in bright colors, stripes and patterns. Your kids will get a kick out of showing them off in the halls. Kids Camouflage Toe Socks look great with a pair of khaki shorts. Kids Rainbow Toe Socks and Kids Denim Stripe Toe Socks go with just about anything. And the Kids Hugs & Kisses Toe Socks are a great way to remind your child how much he or she is loved. Keep each individual little toe covered in style with cool toe socks from Foot Traffic.


Socks that have an Added Cool Factor

If your child is one who likes to stand out, 3D socks are a perfect choice for them. These socks have dimension and extra “cool” factor built in. Penguins have beaks and wings that flap. Bears and pigs have noses, ears and arms that stick out from the sock. Killer whales and sharks have 3D fins and chew up your children’s legs (it’s not as bad as it sounds). If these unique socks go missing, check the littlest ones’ sock drawers. These fun children’s socks are available in youth sizes only, so your tiny tots may have swiped them in a fit of jealousy.


Foot Traffic makes your back to school shopping experience extra special with these designs and many more (did we mention hedgehogs, sloths, and llamas?). Get your back to school shopping off on the right foot by letting your wee ones pick out their favorite kids novelty socks from Foot Traffic today. You won’t have any trouble getting them to school on time this year. They’ll be so excited to show off these socks, they’ll have them on and be waiting in the car for you!

Hot summer days bring tons of outdoor activities, and with those activities comes the age-old conundrum: which of your many stylish pairs of shoes is most appropriate? Sandals and flip-flops are cool and comfy. You can show off your latest pedi and let your toes enjoy the tickle of the grass with each step. But tennies are awfully comfortable and more practical for some activities. Alas, they’re sometimes less stylish, too, because you have to wear socks with them. So which will it be? Sandals or tennis shoes?


You’ll be happy to know that you can be both stylish and comfortable in a pair of tennies and some no-show socks and new low liners from Foot Traffic. You no longer have to worry about whether your chunky socks are ruining the cute. No-shows and low liners from Foot Traffic give you the same benefits of chunkier ankle or knee socks, but they do it on the sly. No one will even know they’re there except for you.


Treat Your Feet to Well-Made Comfort

Believe it not, there are people in the world who don’t like being barefoot. Ever. Low cut socks from Foot Traffic are perfect for people who are more comfortable wearing socks with every pair of shoes they put on. Foot Traffic offers both no-shows that come just to the ankle, and low liners that are cut lower and slightly lighter weight. Made of the same soft, quality materials that the rest of Foot Traffic’s trendy socks are made of, you get premium comfort and flexible fit, even in low liner socks that are barely there. Of course, since they come from Foot Traffic, they’re available in unique patterns and colors. Foot Traffic is known for making socks that make a statement, and their no-shows and low liners are no exception. You’ll find a pair that is fitting for any mood that moves you.


Practical Protection for Your Toes

For those days when you need a little extra protection for your footsies but don’t feel like wearing traditional socks, Foot Traffic’s no-show socks are there for you even though you can’t see them. They protect your feet from the heat. They let your piggies breathe and wick sweat away so they stay nice and dry as well as stink-free. An excess of sweat can ruin a good pair of shoes by turning it into a breeding ground for bacteria. No shows come just to your ankle so aren’t visible when wearing tennies. Low liners are great for tennies as well but can be worn with deck shoes because they are cut lower. Wearing low cut socks may extend the life of your favorite pair of shoes and keep your feet healthy and sweet smelling at the same time. Low cut socks also keep your dogs from whimpering over hot spots and blisters. Summer outdoor activities can be rough on feet, but yours will feel loved rather than stepped on when you protect them with a pair of low cut socks from Foot Traffic.


Wear These Low Cuts Everywhere

Low liners and no-shows work well in all kinds of situations. If you’re one who likes to go barefoot, wear them around the house as slippers. If you travel a lot, keep a pair in your purse or carry-on bag so you can slip them on as you go through security or once you get settled on the plane, or settled in your hotel room.  A business lunch at a Japanese restaurant takes on a whole new twist when you kick off your flats and display your adorable new low liner socks from Foot Traffic. It’s much less embarrassing than baring ungroomed feetsies or stockings with holes in the toes in front of your coworkers or business associates. Now, what about that walking tour of Rome? You’ll want to bring several pairs of low liners or no-shows because you’ll be putting in some miles. Don’t forget to pack several different types of comfortable shoes, too, so you can switch them out during the day. Your feet will love you for it!


Fun for Both Men and Women

Foot Traffic has low cut socks for both men and women. Men will find low liners to be just the thing for boat shoes, loafers worn with rolled up jeans, or casual shoes that look great with bare ankles. Men’s low liner styles include the Men’s T-Rex Low Liner, the Men’s Golf Low Liner, the Men’s Argyle Low Liner, or the Men’s Nautical Low Liner. Whatever your mood or activity, there’s a low cut sock that fits. Low liners are so darn comfortable, you’ll want to wear a pair every day!
Men’s no-shows come in three pack themes like football, music, outdoor, junk food, emojis and baseball.


Women will enjoy choosing from several lo liner designs including the Nautical Low Liner (to match your man), the Be Happy Low Liner, the Critter Low Liner , or the Fruit Low Liner. Regardless of which you choose, you’ll get a kick out of them. When it comes to fashion, these low liners are practically invisible. You’ll love them because really, what’s not to love? Our three pack themes of women’s no-shows come in a variety of fashion colors and fun themes like coffee, owls, emojis, and so much more.


Make Up Reasons to Take Off Your Shoes

New low cut socks  from Foot Traffic are the perfect accessory for everyday wear, and although they don’t show, they’re so cute that you’ll long for reasons to show them off. Make sure you stock up. Then go out in the world a look for reasons to kick off your shoes!





It is spring and our new FOOT TRAFFIC catalog just shipped.  We had a beautiful day with our models and chose the zoo and other outdoor locations as we wanted an outdoor environment to show off our latest novelty sock designs for men, women and kids. We had an awesome photo shoot and our three models made us laugh and smile the entire time. Although we spent most of the shoot at the zoo we managed to sneak in a quick stop at the ice cream shop as a reward for our long day of shooting.

We love animals and were able to enjoy the zoo characters on a fresh bright April day. Hovering over the giraffes and the ostriches was quite a treat as we enjoyed the skyway. We also got up close and personal to a beautiful elephant that was curious about our socks I am sure. For the cover shot, we found a different location to enjoy another animal—our balloon party animals! blog-sky-safari

We had a father/son model team and just capturing their interactions together was a thrill and such an authentic way to get fun photos. We really appreciated their time with us.

As for the socks, we are excited about our newest animal socks, the tiger and the zebra. They really looked beautiful in the zoo environment. We also love the emoji  socks. So many people were sharing their zoo stories on social media so the emoji socks on the adults and kids seemed fitting.

As for the women’s carousal socks, we got a great photo of our newest design as our agile models balanced on the fence at the site of the carousel.  What a great shot!


Socks are an important part of summer attire and they work great with shorts and jeans all year long. They protect your ankles from bug bites and actually keep your feet cooler than if you were not wearing any socks as they are cotton and can absorb your sweat.

We hope you like our new Foot Traffic spring/summer catalog and will treat yo’self to some new socks for the upcoming seasons!

Look for our catalog in the mail soon!  If you don’t already receive one, order online at!







Put a Spring in Your Step with Tights from Foot Traffic



Many people are under the ill-conceived notion that tights are just to be worn in winter for added warmth. And to that, we say, “Hogwash!” Tights are designed for much more than that. Tights are fun. Tights are interesting. Tights add pizzazz to any outfit. So why wouldn’t you wear them all year long? It’s springtime–put a little spring in your step with footless tights from Kansas City-based Foot Traffic.

We’ve been in the sock business for over 30 years and we’ve learned what people are looking for when researching footwear. They’re not just looking for something to cover their feet before slipping their shoes on. They’re looking for a fashion item, something they can add to their wardrobe to make a statement. Something that reflects their personality. Something that says, “Look out, world. Here I come!”


Of course, our customers are also looking for quality. That’s why we put time and effort into every pair of socks, tights or leggings we design and make. Our designers love what they do and they have fun doing it. They’re always coming up with new and creative patterns and designs for our footwear. We partner only with known and trusted manufacturers who are as dedicated to style, comfort, and quality as we are. No saggy, baggy footwear here! We make sure every pair is engineered to provide a comfortable, long-lasting fit with a little attitude thrown in. And yes, we said “engineered.” There’s a lot that goes into our footwear. That’s why our customers keep coming back.

Pair them with patterned tights that make a statement. How about our Tie Dye Microfiber Footless Tights? Or perhaps our Big Polka Dot textured tights instead?

Whether you are a TRUMP supporter, hang in the middle or oppose our current leadership, one thing is clear—Trump has certainly had a lot to tweet about. He has over and over told the world how smart he is and how well-educated he is, so we decided to share that by acknowledging his quote on our new Trump Socks.  Where he seems to have a lot to say, we are speechless.






18Once you’ve drunk all the champagne, finished up all the Christmas chocolates, and cleared the house of the tinsel, it’s tradition to think about the ways a new year will mean a “new you.” Setting New Year’s resolutions is a time-honored tradition, whether they’re personal, professional, or something that touches on some other aspect of your life. Many people vow to get in shape or to read a certain number of books in the new year; others want to finally ask for that raise or achieve a better work/life balance through journaling or other reflective practices. Other people reject the idea of making resolutions and just try to start the new year more mindfully, whilenoting their mistakes and successes from the old year.

Whatever your goals, the most important thing is to make sure your resolutions are easily attainable, reasonable, and rewarding. Big changes are best as long-term goals, whereas it’s good to jump on smaller projects (such as filing your taxes early) while you’re still full of enthusiasm. It’s also good to try not to tackle everything all at once. Marking your planner or calendar with monthly or even seasonal goals can make you more successful in the long run, because let’s face it: even if you do have the best intentions to change everything about your life, the old Yiddish proverb “man plans; God laughs” has a way of coming true every time.

If you want our advice—and we think you might, as you’re reading our blog—a mix of resolutions is the best way to ring in the new year. Not only that, but breaking your larger goals into smaller, more achievable parts can help you stay motivated. With that in mind, let’s talk about some of the most classic goals people gravitate toward in the new year and how you can start achieving them right away… through fashion legwear! (Come on, you know it always comes back to that with us!)

Getting Ahead and Looking Good at the Same Time

We mentioned financial goals above, and those can be challenging resolutions. Saving money is never easy—and most of the time, making more of it can also be a struggle. Even so, people often think about finances after the ball drops on Times Square. Whether it’s paying off your credit card post-Christmas or looking ahead to paying your income tax, money is on everyone’s mind at the start of the new year.

Maybe you also have resolved to try to get ahead in your company—move up the ladder and get that promotion. Maybe you want to get a new job that’s more fulfilling. Or maybe you want to start a side hustle that’s more related to your true passion. These are all huge (and hugely rewarding) goals to make, but you have to break them all down, piece by piece. Sometimes the first step is polishing the resume; sometimes it’s networking, seeking out a mentor, or just conceptualizing what you really want from a career change or shift. And sometimes it’s learning how to dress for success or revamping your wardrobe to better reflect the image of who you’d like to be.

Adding a new stock of solid tights to your wardrobe might be a good idea. Not only can they jazz up interview attire under a suit, dress, or skirt—especially with kicky boots—they’ll keep your legs warm as you walk up to that new office or shop or whatever!

Tights are a specialty of Foot Traffic. We’ll have whatever you need, whether it’s tights or footless tights with solid colors, patterns, or textures. And if you’re not sure what’s most appropriate, our basic black options will keep your legs warm and make you look cool at the same time!

Get a New Look and Get Moving!

It seems like most everyone has some sort of fitness, wellness, or activity-related goal this time of year. The truth of the matter is most of those goals get dropped pretty quickly. Sometimes it’s because people set their sights too high. Other times it’s because life has a way of getting in the way of activity, unless your job is being a fitness instructor, of course.

As with everything else, setting reasonable, easily broken-down, smaller goals can help you reach your ultimate desire much more easily. Small successes keep you motivated to achieve the larger ones.

A great way to keep yourself motivated when it comes to increasing your activity level is to look cute. There, we said it. But it’s true! It’s always fun to wear fun and funky new leggings to the gym, but upping your activity level can (and should) go beyond the treadmill or the leg press. Being active can mean going on walks in the park with friends or heading out to a museum or other indoor space (while the weather is so cold) where you walk around. Cotton or fleece tights and leggings will always be appropriate for such things! And they’re comfy, too.

Tights and footless tights go so well under looser pants, but you can wear them under thick flannel skirts and toasty sweatshirt dresses, too. Need more warmth? Super long leg warmers can add comfort and style to your outfit. But we’re not just about legwear here at Foot Traffic. We also have arm warmers and gloves that will keep your hands and arms warm while you’re outside, taking the stairs up to your office, or walking from your car or bus to the planetarium. You’ll look cute doing so, too!

Get Your Party People Together

Another great goal for the new year is to prioritize your friends more. These days, when it seems like everyone has at least one job plus a side hustle, it can be easy to only keep up with the people we know online. It’s crucial to get up with people in real life, though, especially people who make you feel good. Mental health is just as important as physical health, and during the winter especially it’s all too easy to spend your days and nights on the couch alone or hanging out with your roommates or partner. Sure, it’s cold and wet in the winter, but when you have a nice collection of tights, footless tights and knee-high socks you’ll be more inclined to go out. Get your party people together and hit the town!

Get Cozy, Take Some Time

Of course, it’s just as important to make time for yourself, too. There is a great deal of value to be found in getting cozy, taking some time to yourself, and relaxing at home. “Me Time” is crucial, and it’s easy to put it on the back burner.

During the cold winter months, comfort is everything. When you need a night in—without your laptop—grab a good book, a glass of wine or a mug of hot chocolate, and make sure you invite some nice socks to that party of one. Keep your feet warm as you pamper yourself, whether you want slipper socks, microfiber fuzzy socks, or toe socks. Your feet will love you, and you’ll love yourself.
