Tube socks, by definition, do not have formed heels and will fit any length of foot. This simple shape, straight from the top to the seam at the toe, offers lots of leeway for big and little feet alike! Tube socks come in lots of different styles, from terry-lined sports socks to even classic nylon stockings and trouser socks! Most tights also have a tube-style foot, allowing them to fit a wider range of folks! read more »

Why choose a tube sock?If your feet tend to run smaller or bigger than the average sock, tube socks might a good option. Since they have no shaped heel that defines the “foot” of the sock, the heel is where you make it! Tube socks mean no more heel flopping up on your ankle, or stretched across the arch of your foot.
Things to consider about tube socksIt’s important keep in mind is that, since there’s no definition between the foot and the leg of the sock (other than what your own foot gives it), how high a tube sock goes up your leg depends on the length of your foot. An over the knee tube sock may become a thigh high tube sock on a smaller foot, while the same style on a larger foot may only be a knee high tube sock.
Smaller and narrower feet should also consider that, since there’s no defined shape to a tube sock, some feet might find the toe seam too wide to fit in the toes of their shoes. They’ll have more luck with trouser socks and stockings, or other thinner styles, which have less bulk in the first place.
The toe seam on tube socks also runs straight across the end of the toes, so sensitive feet may be irritated. We talk a little more in depth about toe seams in our Sock Journal post, Talkin’ Toe Seams. Luckily, tube sock toe socks have woven toe seams and are a fun tube sock option!

Types of tube socksThough we’ve seen many styles of tube socks over the years, there are a couple of socks we see most often—sport socks, trouser socks, stockings and tights. Each tube sock type has its own benefits.
Sport SocksThe classic, terry-lined, tall tube sock is a staple of retro sporty looks. We have several of these athletic tube sock styles in our Dream Stockings collection. Even though their origin is modest, tube socks being the best option when you’re trying to find something that fits everybody on your team, there’s a nostalgic fondness for these top striped tube socks.
Another thing that makes sporty tube socks popular is their terry lining. The soft terry loops cushion the foot and leg, while also doing a great job softening that sometimes irritating toe seam.
Trouser SocksOn the opposite end of the scale, trouser socks are mostly tube socks. These thin, knee high styles are the perfect dress sock, slipping nicely into snugger shoes. Reaching knee high on smaller feet and over the calf on larger feet, tube sock trouser socks go high enough on the leg to add the most professional pattern to that gap between the cuff of your trousers and your dress shoes.
StockingsMost classic nylon or net thigh high stockings are also tube socks; offering either the same sexy pattern from toes to tops for a stocking that looks great in open toe shoes, or a reinforced toe to add a longer life to your favorite styles.
A tube sock stocking means that, no matter how large your foot, there’s a thigh high option out there for you!
TightsUnlike socks, most tights have tube-style feet, mostly due to the tights manufacturing process. The bonus to that means that when you’re looking at tights with different sizes, you only have to worry about finding the size that fits your legs and hips without also having to worry about fitting your foot size too!
From short to tall, to even tights, tube socks are a great option if socks with a formed heel don’t fit.
I know Sock Dreams has thoroughly spoiled me when I check out a knee-high sock webstore and am shocked at the lack of helpful sizing info...
