Socks of the Best – Top 20 Festive Footwarmers

No apologies for that pun in the title, it’s what we do and if you’re bored of our irreverence imagine how we feel!

Anyway, this being November and November being the month most of us should traditionally turn to thoughts of gifts we will either give or receive, socks are pretty apt, we reckon.

With this in mind, we’ve compiled perhaps the most comprehensive and up-to-date list of options you’ll find on this here internet.

To see our other round-ups, check here. Otherwise scroll down for some hosiery delights.

Oi Polloi Sportswear x Anonymousism
Since the reorganisation behind the scenes it’s been interesting watching how Oi Polloi have been operating of late. It’s something that could be levelled at a number of other UK retailers who have found themselves falling under the JD umbrella in recent years. By the looks of things though, it’s largely business as usual, with OP left to do the things they’ve always done well, but in more abundance. Take the Oi Polloi own brand for example. This collab with Japanese socksperts Anonymousism is an attractive foray into the relaxed luxury aesthetic for which Oi Polloi have become synonymous over the years.

Gramicci Line Short Socks at Urban Industry
Not all socks are made equal, and in the case of these beautifully presented efforts from the always-reliable Gramicci, there’s an example that it’s not just about how good a product is, but how it’s presented too.
