Sock It To Me

You will never believe how much you can learn about a person just by one look at the socks they use. It is a known fact that many women and men judge a person based on the shoes that they wear. But, did you know that more than the shoes you use, different types of socks have different meanings?

Types of Socks and What They Mean

Here are 10 types of socks, and what they could possibly mean about you!

1. Ankle Length Socks

Ankle Length Socks

Considering that they are a 21st-century discovery, it shows that you are well with the times. You might seem like a laid back Joe but in reality, you are much more of a vixen that you let people believe. You believe in showing just enough to keep the other person guessing.

2. Knee High Socks

Knee High Socks

If you’re not an Ariana Grande fan then you’re obviously a Kawaii, Baby-Doll kinda person. These socks are worn mostly by young teenage girls or ladies who refuse to grow up. You’re probably the type of person who enjoys ice cream, candy, and chocolate. You’re also probably known as the ‘baby’ of the group.

3. Calf Length Socks

Calf Length Socks

You’re probably a Dad who loves wearing socks with shoes. Unless you are wearing leg warmers with your boots, calf socks are so outdated. It is highly likely that you either dwell on the past or are in denial about the present and the future. However, this would make you an extremely interesting person as you probably know facts about things that no one else is not generally bothered about but would like to know.

4. Mid-Calf Length Socks

Mid-Calf Length Socks

Slightly lower than calf-length socks, mostly worn by people in their mid-life crisis. This could mean that you are a devoted, loyal, conserved, and a great hard working person. You really couldn’t care less what other people have to say to you or about you. You know what you want and you aren’t afraid to go out and get it.

5. Crew Length Socks

Crew socks

You seem to be exactly what everyone assumes you are. You are extremely predictable and completely reliable. Sadly, this does not mean that you get to have a lot of fun. On the plus side, you really don’t seem to mind all that extra time by yourself, while you immerse yourself in your creative side.

6. Thigh High Socks

Thigh High Socks

Do we really need to explain what these mean? You are the perfect combination of Naughty and Nice. While this might work out for you in your 20s, it does not necessarily mean that you will find a happily ever after once that momentarily attention dwindles. You might be lacking attention in certain aspects of your life, but, you are the life of the party.

7. Toe Socks

Toe Socks

You love fun, fun, and more fun. You’re possibly an introvert who enjoys long nights with chicken nuggets and Netflix. When someone invites you to a party, you immediately begin to have palpitations. It is also possible that you binge watch your childhood show/ movie often enough that you now know the dialogues off-hand.

8. No Show Socks

No Show Socks

You are a make-belief comfort person. You might seem like you don’t really care about anything when in reality you have an opinion about practically everything in life. People find it hard to get you to open up about yourself but once you do there’s no turning back.

9. Stockings


People who wear stockings do not believe in a balance. Finding out what extreme you are at at the moment is a task, even for you. You either have everything all sorted out, or the world is falling apart at your feet. You are extremely emotional, though you try not to show it.

Bare Feet

You really don’t care about personal hygiene and safety. You spend more time worrying about what problems others are facing, rather than standing up to your own problems. However, this could be a plus point as you will always find yourself surrounded by people, never a moment alone.
