“I have reached an age where if someone tells me to wear socks, I don't have to.” Albert Einstein

We wouldn’t dare tell Dr. Einstein that he has to wear socks…but we think that if he’d ever worn the World’s Softest® Classic socks that he’d have never made that statement! You don’t have to be a genius to appreciate the phenomenal softness of these socks.

We don’t know much about quantum physics…we just make the world’s softest socks.

Quality is Back!! Review by Ronnie
I've just received my last order and am so happy that the quality is back. I've stuck with them because they were always better than the competition; however, not always at the top of their game. The 'extra' quality is back. These have a very substantial feel to them and the yarn may actually be better than before..washings will tell. They are the best I have ever tried as they stay up, are warm and cushiony. WSS may want more sales but these last so long; my satisfaction with this product keeps me a loyal customer...even if not as frequent! (Posted on 12/19/14)
Since I discovered WSS over a decade ago, I wear no other socks. I would even praise them to my teenage students, some of whom I know are now customers. It was especially helpful to the athletes who were prone to blisters in sports such as cross country and football. Of course they are wearing low cut and I am over the calf. (Posted on 2/8/14)
Real Made in USA greatness, no excuses Review by AC
I toured Crescent mill in 2000 and got a sample pair. I've worn these socks ever since- what a fantastic product! The over the calf size stay up for years so my boots don't chafe my calves and the fabric stays tough for even longer. No holes, fraying or tearing when they get older like cheaper socks.

4 years is my normal replacement schedule, so the price is a great value. I can't wait for my new order to come for my Christmas present.

Buy American- these socks set a new standard of excellence.

great socks, Review by Robbyn

We are your biggest fans! Review by Ralph
I found these socks through an outlet store and bought a pair. It took several wearings until I really noticed how well they stayed up all day and were extremely comfortable, also my feet did not feel hot or get sweaty like other socks. I gave a pair to my wife and that was the beginnning of a long and continuing relationship with these socks as we both wear them year round and have gotten rid of all are other inferior socks for good!

LOVE the socks Review by Aarene
Soft, yes. Also warm. Also, they don't sag.

Did I mention that I wear them while horseback riding...50-mile events?

My feet stay comfortable for the ENTIRE event. I love love love these socks.

Please bring back the purple ("iris") color, it is beautiful. (Posted on 8/2/12)
Worlds Bestest Socks! Review by Sassy
These are the best socks I have ever purchased. I have been wearing them for years. I purchase the knee socks, and they stay up. I have never had a pair wear out due to holes in the toes or heels. I launder them inside out. Since I live in a very cold climate, I need the warmth of these socks. I have never yet had to throw any away. They just do not wear out...I just keep adding colors. Buy them. You will not regret it! (Posted on 10/2/11)
I love these socks! Review by ceecee
These socks are so soft, cozy and warm! I keep thinking I will put them away for the spring, but I keep going back to them day after day! As the previous reviewer said, they stay up on my leg, and they last! I especially like the darker colored ones. My light pink ones got a little dingy on the bottom over a couple years.
