While good old white socks can be quite boring, ugly even, socks have come a long way since they were just something you wear on your feet to keep warm, so you could wear certain shoes more comfortably, or to play sports. Nowadays, there are all kinds of socks, from those which are only meant to cover your feet and stop at the ankle or those which go up all the way up to your knee, from everyday socks to special performance socks, which are meant for sports only, and even therapeutic and lounge socks. While crew cut socks are popular as multipurpose socks, ankle socks have become very popular for summer wear. Ankle socks stop at the line of most athletic shoes and don’t leave an unsightly tan line.
