About DeFeet Custom

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.

How does the process work?

1. Choose a sock silhouette

You can choose from 5 different DeFeet sock styles. 

2. Design your sock

You can send us a logo or an idea and we will mock it up, or you can submit a completed sock design (please keep in mind that designs will be adjusted to a concept that can be knitted).

3. Submit your order

Once you're ready to place your order, our custom order form will walk you through the information we need to begin your job. 

4. Pay the Art Fee

Once you hit submit on the order form, you'll be redirected to to pay the $25 Art Fee. Add an Art Fee for each different sock design you submit. 

5. Receive a quote 

A custom representative will contact you within 72 hours of receiving your order with any additional questions or to provide additional information to be able to provide a quote. 

6. Production 

You will receive a mock-up of your sock design. Once your proof is approved, you job will go into production!

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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!

4. 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.

5. What sizes do you offer?

Our unisex socks are available in S, M, L, and XL.

6. 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.

7. How long does it take?

After your order comes in, we create a production proof based on your requests and knitting parameters.

Take a careful look at the proof! This is how your knitted sock will look. Once it goes into production, no further changes can be made.

After you approve the proof, we move the job into production. During our slower times of year, orders can be processed in 4-6 weeks from the date the production proof is approved.

PLEASE NOTE: The turnaround time is dependent upon the current workload in the microsockery, supply chain issues, and the time of year (before or around the holidays, production time can be longer). Communicate your needs to your custom rep so they can best determine an estimated date of completion for your job.

8. 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. 

9. Will I receive a proof?

Once your sock design is finalized, you'll receive a digital proof to review.
