    Serious guys. How do you keep your socks from twisting??? It's especially hard when wearing socks with a pair of those soft thick house socks over them cause it's cold. Then it becomes a double challenge.
    I'd hate to be an octopus.

    Sorry my advice is set to random.

    Just remember : closed eyes always hold a clean spoon.

    This doesn't make sense now,but it will in the future.

    Sock garters?

    Never worn them but it’s the only thing I can think of.

    if your eyes are closed - how do you know if the spoon is clean?

    Fitted socks, or socks with elastic above the ankle.

    No but wouldn’t they minimize twisting by virtue of keeping the top part untwisted?

    I have never had only the foot part of the sock twist by itself while the ankle/calf part remained untwisted....but maybe you wear very different socks than I do? Are they really loose but only at the foot part?

    You just periodically adjust them as needed.

    maybe I'll try tape? But I hate that the sock heels always twist around to the top of my foot!!!!
    And I actually can remember those elastic garter things to hold socks up.

    I don't think Rube Goldberg ever did anything with socks...but I suppose you can always google it anyways. o_O

    Good point. Given the amount of of slack for most people who have neither the largest or smallest feet, the average pair of socks always has more movement than most of us would like.

    Though I suspect fitted socks are not cheap either...:eek:

    For what it's worth @Pats, I hate all that slack in any sock as well. :rolleyes:

    I thought “fitted socks” just meant socks that are shaped to be snug on the foot, as opposed to something like tube socks....does it mean something else?

    I've always thought of them as the same as a fitted shirt. Socks that conform to the foot in every way, rather than fit like a bag over one's head. Or foot....lol.

    maybe that's the problem - if there were no heel, it wouldn't matter if they twisted around. Feet bags is maybe what I need to look for.

    I just find myself always having to readjust my socks before putting on a pair of shoes. Without fail. :(

    Except for the toe seams, if you are a person who is bothered by them...having those in the wrong place is bothersome to me, just like the wrong feeling of the twisted heel.
