Socks – One of the most under rated piece of clothing out there. Nearly each and every one on this planet wears them every day, but only a small portion of those wearing actually care deeply about the brands, types or quality of the socks they are wearing. This is one of the biggest mistakes that can be made. Socks are probably one of the most crucial parts of the clothing worn by people, not only from a fashion perspective but also importantly from a hygienic one. Socks made cheaply and from bad materials can leave a very unpleasant smell that puts off people from the one wearing them. Miss-matched socks can often completely ruin the look of the person wearing them. So to avoid embarrassment, it is important to understand the different types, qualities and fabric that socks come in. Laulax is here for you.

Socks have evolved over the centuries. In the earliest of times, people used animal skins to make socks that covered their feet for protection from the elements. For centuries on end, they remained one of the most crucial items of clothing. The introduction of nylon in 1938 revolutionized the socks industry. Until then socks were commonly made from silk, cotton and wool. The discovery of Nylon brought with it blending of two or more yarns in the production process; something that continues to this day.

Socks differ fundamentally for men & women. For men, there are three universal sizes of socks – Medium/Youth (3-9 size), Large (6-12) & Extra Large (12-16). Within these different sizes comes the different types in which men’s socks exist – Dress socks (Which are worn under formal or semi-formal shoes), athletic socks (Which are made from specially designed material that not only soaks up the excessive sweat, but also gives protection for the feet and ankles) and specialty socks (Socks that are made for special purposes, e.g; Football, Medical etc)

Women’s socks are also available in a large assortment of styles, sizes, and colors. Generally speaking the sizes run medium/large (shoe size 4-10) and extra-large (shoe size 10-12). Even more so than men, women’s socks come in a huge variety to types. Some of the more used ones are – Knit Socks (Which are mostly low cut, nude socks), Trouser Socks (Worn normally with business or casual wear), Bobby Socks (With thick upper ends that can be folded), Slouch Socks (Thick fashion socks that can be folded around the ankles), Knee high knit socks (Often worn with tall boots and too school), Knee high & Thigh nylons (Thinner, sheerer and sexier from trouser socks), Pantyhose, Tights, Women’s athletic socks, Fun & specialty socks and a host of other small types and makes.
