slouch socks in many colors

How to Rock Slouch Socks!

Call them slouch socks, slouchy socks, scrunch socks or scrunchie socks - there's just something about a nice, thick, loose, scrunchable sock that feels so right!

If you were rocking them in the '80s or '90s, you probably already know a way or two for how to wear them.  For those new to the amazingness which is the slouch sock, we'll be glad to give you a few fresh ideas!

Slouch Them.

Simple enough, right?  Threddies Slouch Socks are nice and thick and long (14", to be exact!) to get that satisfying slouch you're looking for.  Pull your socks up all the way, then smash 'em down as low as you please.  You'll get a different amount of volume and a different effect depending on how low you go - from a voluminous scrunchie puffball around your ankles, to a looser look when worn about halfway up the shin.  Pair them up with a pair of sneakers for a casual look, or team them up with a bootie for a different vibe.

Pull Them Up.

On most people, Threddies Slouch Socks can be pulled all the way up to the knee, to turn them into knee socks.  Since the tube of the sock is loose and comfortable, they won't constrict or pinch like many knee socks might.  Try teaming them up with a pair of boots to provide a thick and comfy layer.  On cold days, pulling a pair of slouch socks way up high is also a cozy option for hanging out around the house!

Layer Them.

For true retro appeal, layer those socks up!  In the '80s and early '90s, slouch socks were worn as stacked socks - several pair at a time for a layered look, which still looks cool today.  Scrunch them in layers for a two-tone look.  Try a third layer if you're feeling bold and extra scrunchy!

Embellish Them.

Threddies Thick Slouch Socks are dyeable, which means that you can really get creative!  Tie dye 'em, piece dye 'em, sew on a trim, add an applique... the possibilities are endless! 

Whether you're buying one pair for yourself, or several wholesale bulk packs to embellish, resell, or for your team or group - Threddies has got all of your slouch sock needs covered!  With 3 weights to choose from (lightweight slouch socks, midweight slouch socks, thick slouch socks) and kids slouch sock sizes too, you'll totally find what you've been looking for!  PS, our deliciously scrunchy socks are made in the USA!
