When it comes to socks, cotton is an enduring and popular choice. The benefits of cotton are legion: cotton socks are hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites, which make them perfect for those with allergies or sensitive skin. Natural fibers like cotton are breathable and allow for good air circulation, keeping feet cool and dry. Cotton is also biodegradable and a renewable resource making it kind to the environment. Cotton socks have come a long way since the basic men's tube sock. For those preferring low-rise socks, they are available in classic white as well as lots of fun fashion colors. For cooler weather, cotton knee socks are a standard. Typically a blend of cotton and spandex for shape retention and stretch, knee-socks are offered in virtually any color, pattern and style, from classic heather hues to rainbow stripes. And what hosiery drawer is complete without a few pairs of basic cotton crew socks? They're perfect with casual shoes and athletic footwear.
