We currently offer Foot Alignment Socks as prevention and assistance for swollen feet, bunions, hammer toes and other deformities, in basic sizes. We are often asked what size should be selected if foot size is somewhere in between the sock sizes offered. We have prepared a guide for you, including specific advice about how to choose your socks in this case.
Six sizes, many colours
Which sizes of Foot Alignment Socks are available? We currently offer them in sizes XS, XXS, S, M, L and now also XL. Why letters when shoe and sock sizes are usually numbered? Because one size of Foot Alignment Socks covers a range of classic sizes. This is mainly because the socks do not have a covered toe. The length of the foot is not the only key indicator; other criteria are also important, such as the overall structure of the foot, the size of the gaps between the toes, the height of the metatarsals, and whether the soles are large or small. You can find many different colours in our range - light grey, multicoloured, green, dark grey, blue, pink, red, white, blue-orange and purple. And now also navy blue in the EXTRA STRETCH variant for swollen legs.
Sizes XXS and XS are suitable for kids with sizes 27-30 and 31-34, S covers sizes up to 38, M covers 39 to 42, L from 43 to 46 and XL is from 47 up. Each of our sizes therefore covers four or five standard foot sizes. This brings us to the main question: which size should you select if your foot size is between sizes? If you have size 38 feet, you may buy size 38 shoes on one occasion, then 39 or 38.5 on another. What should you choose in the case of Foot Alignment Socks?
How to select the correct size
Foot Alignment Socks are produced in a slightly larger size than ordinary socks. First determine what size feet you have. You can find this out from your shoes or simply measure your feet from the heel to the toe. If your foot size falls in between S, M or L range, then your choice is easy and selection is simple.
If your foot size is somewhere at the end of a range, for example, 38–39, 42–43 or 46–47, you will have to consider other circumstances. Decide whether the sole of your is large or small, and also focus on its width. Last but not least, compare the height of your metatarsals.
If the soles of your feet and the parts we described are larger, choose the larger size. Otherwise, we recommend selecting the smaller size. If you have very wide feet, suffer from swelling or are bothered by rubber bands on your socks, choose the option with a wide cuff - EXTRA STRETCH. If you order a different size than you need by mistake, we will we happy to exchange any unworn socks.
What to consider when selecting Foot Alignment Socks
If you are buying socks for somebody as a gift, it is important to correctly determine not only their foot size but also the other criteria we mentioned above. You will save unnecessary worries in exchanging the goods.
Also be careful of imitations which could damage your feet. You can recognise the original Foot Alignment Socks by the embroidered feet on the metatarsals; when the socks are worn, the feet are angled towards you.
Selecting the correct size of the Foot Alignment Socks is easy. We leave selecting the right colour up to you. Select them in our online shop.
