Socks for Ladies
December 6, 2013 3:25 PM   Subscribe

Continuing secret Santa filter: I'd like to buy socks in team colors for my secret Santa: Orioles, Ravens and the Maryland Terrapins. I know that she likes knee-high styles, as I've seen her wear them before. Aside from just searching for that on Amazon I'm not sure what to look for in terms of quality and comfort. Altogether I'd like to spend around $30 for all three. Physical retail locations would also be appreciated.

Sock Dreams is a good place to start. They also have terrific customer service and could probably make specific suggestions for you.

I immediately thought of Sock Dreams as well. I have had only good experiences with them and their products.

I have several pairs of the knee-high stripe socks from American Apparel. They last forever and come in lots of color combinations.

2nding those American Apparel socks, they're really great. AA's running a Groupon now, too.

Although I'm sure those are good socks, I'm specifically looking for the team colors mentioned in the question.

Sock Dreams is my go-to for knee-high and over in lots of colors, but as far as brick and mortar goes I've also had good luck at Target and, oddly enough, Jo-Ann Fabrics.

Not knowing exactly the colors of those teams, if any of them have black as a color, We Love Colors has black striped socks in a myriad of colors. I have only ordered tights from them, not socks, though, so I can't speak to the quality.

A bit over your price range, Fanatics has at least 2 of your team stripey socks.

Fans Edge has all of your teams' socks - running about $16 per pair
