With the right socks, you can achieve the ultimate level of skateboarding fun. Shop a huge selection of skate socks from Stance, Vans, Huf & more online. Skate socks are just as important to true skaters as the knowledge that mall grabbing at a skatepark (or anywhere, for that matter) is one of skateboarding's cardinal sins.

What separates skate socks from normal socks?
The classic white and grey sports socks might be a great option for shoobies, but for skating, the bar is set slightly higher. And we're not just talking about the style factor.
The Material and the Perfect Fit
In contrast to the classic white or grey sport socks that are typically made of cotton, most skate socks are comprised of polyester, cotton, elastane, and diverse stretch materials. This material mix ensures that the socks don’t feel too tight or too loose. Elastic bands guarantee a firm hold in the shoes because the socks perfectly conform to the shape of your feet.
The fabric also helps make the socks more breathable. This means that not only will you sweat less, but also the little moisture that is produced can evaporate more quickly. You don’t want to have to wring your socks out and hang them up to dry after every session.
The exact material composition of each and every pair is listed in the item description.
Special Skateboarding Features
For many skate socks, the individual needs of us skaters are considered in the manufacturing process. Consequently, many socks in our shop have a reinforced footbed, which helps dampen the impact forces in landing tricks, helping to protect your feet.
For some brands and models, like in Stance brand socks, the skateboarding specific areas on the heels, toes, and the front of the foot (the so-called “Ollie area”) are specially reinforced to prevent holes from forming.
The size of skate socks is unfortunately not standardised. For this reason, in the product description, we try to always give you a suggestion of the appropriate size based on your shoe size. If that’s not the case, don’t hesitate to reach out to our skatedeluxe customer service team. They’ll be happy to help you.
So do your feet and your style a favour and order your new favourite pair of skate socks in the skatedeluxe Online Skate Shop!
