Two brands for great socks.

Everyone in the family can look good & feel good with these made in the USA, natural fiber socks. Have fun filling up your socks drawers with Goodhew’s everyday socks and Sockwell’s therapeutic socks. Check out all their modern designs!

 CRAFTED IN THE USA

Our socks are crafted using state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques in world-class American mills. Helping preserve jobs, support local economies, and manage our carbon footprint.

GOODHEW JASMIN CREW: This is a thin knit sock  that has a comfortable fit and a stylish look. I’ve worn and washed them several times and haven’t noticed any fast-happening heel wear. That’s good ’cause a sock with a worn out heel is sad. Like any jacquard knit, the bottom does get some pulls.

Jacquard Knit Design
Flat Toe Seam

CUSHIONING
Non-Cushion

SOCKWELL CHEVRON GRADUATED COMPRESSION: This is the 1st time I’ve worn compression socks, so I can’t compare them to any other therapeutic sock. The fit felt good on my legs and I thought they were more comfortable then typical knee-hi socks mostly because they stay up. They were snug getting on but they didn’t feel too tight while wearing. The fit does make “chevron” marks on my legs when the socks come off. They wash and wear great. 

FEATURES
Spandex throughout sock
Graduated Compression Leg
Turn Welt Top

Seamless Toe Closure

COMPRESSION

CUSHIONING

Do you dread putting your flip-flops away in the fall?

Peeky Toes™ are toeless socks made for your visit to the spa. They keep your feet warm while your toes get pretty. Now if the spa thing isn’t for you, Peeky Toes™ are great at other times. Personally, I like them to wear them with flip-flops for a warm, stylish look. And I like to wear them around the house and when in bed after putting lotion on my feet. Love the wiggle room.
