My collection is proof that you can never have too many pairs of fuzzy socks. So what makes for the best fuzzy socks, you may ask? First, they have to be comfortable. (Obviously.) Next, they need to make your feet and ankles feel as though they're being bear-hugged in a soft, fluffy cloud. And finally, the finest ones look cute and appropriately grown-up. Now that you know, don't let your toes freeze for another second—and get yourself a bin, because you're going to want to buy every pair below.
The best fuzzy socks to snuggle up in this season
If you’ve ever wanted to embrace your inner Goth through hosiery, now’s your big moment. These fuzzy black socks visually represent the gloom of a Bauhaus-loving sullen teen, but they’re as soft and fluffy as an ittle-wittle baby bunny—so really, how can you go wrong?
Barefoot Dreams’ fabric is so soft that Oprah has featured the brand’s products in her Favorite Things—we’re talking more than once, people. Naturally, these socks are almost unimaginably fluffy and absolutely perfect for a day curled up with a good book.
These fuzzy socks have a Breton-stripe thing going for them, but if you somehow find the French pattern passé, you can always go with polka dots or a zany ’70s stripe. Options are good to have.
These over-the-knee socks aren’t exactly subtle, and unless your workplace has a very open-minded dress code, you’ll probably wear these only at home. But imagine that first frigid Friday evening in January, and how good it would feel to slip these on right before bed, and you’ll understand the appeal of wrapping your feet and calves in soft, fuzzy warmth.
Finally, if you want durable and warm socks, invest in these from L.L. Bean. On the outside, they look like cable-knit socks. No big whoop. But inside, they’re lined with thick, plush fleece to insulate your toes from bitter cold. That’s right, they’re stealth fuzzy—and better still, the bottoms have grip to keep you from slip-sliding across smooth floors.
