    You are exactly right tortoise. Fitted socks are the exact sock for your foot size, harder to find now, but if your shoe size is an eight, then a size 7 or 8 sock is appropriate. They do not twist like a tube sock or other slippery materials that they make them from these days.

    That will work :)

    Hottest setting (without igniting the socks)

    Good idea :)

    Ah, okay.

    I didn’t understand exactly - I didn’t assume that much size specificity (like I would have counted various size 9-12 socks as “fitted socks”) just more shaping of the sock to foot shape.

    I have about ten pairs of hand knitted socks that an elderly friend made for me. When she retired I bought her wool all the time for patients at the hospital. She would knit two pairs per day. And often made me a pair for birthdays and holidays. They fit my feet perfectly and I wash them gently so they'll last a really long time.

    You may still go to one or two stores, and purchase a size eight pair of socks specifically. Usually in the men's section of some of the older department stores. They would then fit well, as now they have general stretchy socks that fit three or more sizes. It was not that way in the past.

    Have to say this forum has improved immensely since they dropped all that ASD nonsense and made it sock related.

    try to find socks with a very tight grip on the seam ,you might have very slim feet like me,Also make sure you have shoes that have elastic in them to grip your feet ,especially for women our shoe size changes as we lose water and gain water,Try socks size one usually for a 13 to 16-year-old ,they might fit more accurately ,it might be an idea to not wear cotton socks They just don’t have the grip,I find trainer Socks are better

    On the rare occasion I wear anything more than ankle high (Like the Ultra Soft diabetic socks I wear in winter) I fold them down to prevent that discomfort.

    I wear bicycle tights when it's cold out to stop the skin crawling sensation I get. They are a PITA to put on.

    Threaten them with my brother in laws feet after he works a ten hour shift. That should scare them straight.

    Perhaps wear tighter socks or slippers to help them stay in place?

    The longer the first layer of socks is, the less they can twist. Cotton is better than other fabrics, it gains moisture from the air and is heavier and sticks to the skin kinda like rubber, can hold tight too rather than soft lightweight fabrics that are slippery and shifty. Tucking pants in the socks helps. How well they fit the foot matters, potentially even how elastic and snug the fabric all around is.
