Since 1992, we’ve offered custom sock design at a 60 pair minimum, ideal for our small business customers. Our craftsmanship is built on the principles of in-house manufacturing using local recycled fiber and ethically sourced USA-grown Merino wool. The result is DeFeet quality, socks designed for performance, durability, and comfort.
When you display your logo, colors, and designs on DeFeet socks, your brand goes into the world joy for everyone who wears them.
What's the minimum order for custom socks?
Five dozen is the minimum order for custom socks. For fewer dozen socks, contact a custom representative to discuss pricing.
How long does it take?
Most orders can be processed in 4-6 weeks from the date the production proof is approved.
Timeline is dependent upon time of year and the current knitting workload in our microsockery.
Do I have to provide art or can I tell you what I want?
We have in-house designers who can configure your submitted design for a sock, or who can work with your idea and apply that concept to a knitted sock.
What sizes do you offer?
Our unisex socks are available in S, M, L, and XL.
What sizes should I order?
Once you submit an order, a custom sock representative will contact you. They can help you determine the best size ranges for your order.
What cuff heights are available?
Different sock silhouettes are available in different ranges of cuff heights, from 1" to knee high. If you are unsure, discuss with your custom representative. Just remember, a shorter cuff height means a smaller design area!
Will I receive a proof?
Once your sock design is finalized, you'll receive a digital proof to review.
Can I get the same design in different colors?
Yes! You can often run a second colorway at no additional charge. If there are multiple color changes you may be charged a $25 Art Fee.
Will you promote my sock on social media?
We would love to! If you want us to share your socks, please provide your social media information when you submit your custom sock order.
I'm ready. How do I get started?
1. Choose a sock silhouette
You can choose from 5 different DeFeet sock styles. Socks are designed for a range of cycling and outdoor activities, with padding and fiber content determined by intended use. For example, the Aireator and Levitator Lite are designed for road cyclists with no padding, lightweight breathable construction, and moisture wicking properties. The Woolie Boolie has full padding, best for mountain biking or hiking. Choose the sock with the fiber content and construction that is most versatile for your customer.

You can describe your design in the custom order form and upload a logo, or you can design your sock yourself. Please keep in mind that designs will be adjusted to a concept that can be knitted. Submitted art should be a minimum size of 6" x 6" for the cuff art. Higher resolution is helpful. You will see a final proof before production.
3. Fill out the custom order form
Our custom order form will walk you through the information we need to begin your job. You will be asked to choose the sock silhouette you prefer for each sock design you submit (you will be able to upload or describe art for up to three different sock designs).
In the order form, you'll pay the $25 Art Fee. Please adjust quantity to reflect the number of designs submitted (if you submit three sock designs, you'll need to add three Art Fees for a total of $75).
4. What next?
A custom representative will contact you within 72 hours of receiving your order. They will communicate any additional questions or provide additional information to be able to provide a quote. Then your job will begin the design process!
