Who has ever walked in a pair of socks that are just not made to fit your foot? If your hand is raised, there is a good chance you are part of the size 12 and up club. The struggle is very very real.
Everyone is incredibly different, and our feet are no exception. With all the different widths, heights, thickness, shapes and sizes, it’s no wonder finding the perfect pair of socks can be much like trying to find the perfect pair of shoes. It can be so frustrating to walk in a pair of socks that just ain’t right, plus it can cause back pain, orthopaedic issues and even something called bunions – GASP! If you don’t know what a bunion is, trust us, you don’t want to…
The fact of the matter is the larger your feet, the fewer options you have to choose from. There are shops out there that do offer you some options, but in all seriousness who wants to be caught purchasing socks from Boringbigsocks.com. Not a savvy, style conscious person of the future like yourself. That’s who!
All jokes, puns and satirical references aside, we have a learned a thing or two selling socks over the years. Dang Canada, some of you have some big feet!
