DeFeet didn’t just invent the custom sock category. We set out to revolutionize sock design. DeFeet turned the hosiery industry on it’s head, reversing the manufacturing process and crafting socks unlike any that had ever come before.

DeFeet pioneered hallmark features such as Aireator® mesh to dramatically increase cooling, drying and wicking, EduroSkin™ plating for increased durability and the StayFast™ flat-knit design cuff. Quality and performance in custom socks had been redefined.

DeFeet is the leader in the creation of sustainable custom socks. Your brand gets the satisfaction of knowing your socks are crafted from recycled plastic bottles. If you order wool, your product is made from more sustainable and conscientious USA grown, washed and dyed Merino.


Think of our socks as the palate for your designs. Have confidence in their performance, because they’ve all been proven in the world’s toughest events.
