What types of socks are there?

A stocking In the classic sense, denotes the clothing of feet and legs. It should reach over the middle of the calf. In the past, the stockings even basically reached almost to the buttocks. Nowadays, only women's nylon stockings and compression stockings are offered in this length. Socks are significantly shorter than stockings and usually reach just above the ankle. For men, the socks are usually longer. Socks can also be divided into many subcategories. Sneaker socks For example, these only reach just below the ankle and should hardly or not at all be seen in shoes. Another category are Countersthat are very rarely seen. They only cover the toes and are attached to the heel with an elastic band. Somewhat better known, but still not widely used Toe socks. They are not classic socks either. These socks cover each toe individually. So it looks like a glove for your feet. 😉 On the other hand, they are well known Socks. You probably know them, don't you? They extend from the end of the toe to the base of the heel. They are cut out at the instep. The booties are therefore very short and cannot be seen in shoes. Then there is also knee socks, these socks reach up to the knee or beyond - in this case they are also known as overknees. Just like the boots in this length. J Of course, what should not be missing from this list is Sports socks. These socks are usually a little longer. They often reach mid-calf or even further up to the knee. The difference to normal socks is the material and the workmanship. Sports socks often have a supportive hold or reinforcements, for example on the heel or on the shin. Sports socks can be very different, depending on the sport they are designed for. A subgroup of sports socks are Tennis socksthat have now established themselves for everyday use. Depending on the season, they are fashionable sometimes mega-in, then again mega-out. By the way, they are currently extremely trendy again. They reach about mid-calf, are usually white and have a sportier look. Often they are also provided with stripes.
