I'm right in the middle of two sizes, what size socks should I order? If you are on the cusp between sizes and are wondering which size to get, the socks will shrink a bit but they also stretch. So if you like your socks to fit snug, then opt for the smaller size and if you don't like socks to fit snug then opt for the larger size.

How do I know what size to order? You will be happy to know that our socks run true to size. If you are on the cusp of a size we recommend that you order the next size up. The cotton will hug your feet better due to the lycra content.
