ORTC socks are a great way to add warmth to your feet without adding bulk. When you pair that with the fact that they come in an incredibly wide variety of styles, designs, colours, and fabrics, you can see why they are so popular among people all over the world. The main question is, how do you choose what socks you wear? In this article, I’ll give you some tips for choosing the right socks to make your feet look their best.
First, let’s start by answering the question, “what are crew socks?” These ORTC socks are a slang name for men’s crew-necked socks, also known as athletic socks, long-sleeved socks, gym socks, or sports socks. Both crew socks and ankle socks generally come in any of these fabrics (or a mixture of two) – cotton, nylon, microfiber, wool, or another. Crew socks are worn mostly by men, but women are starting to wear crew socks as well. These are very short, almost stubby, socks.
Nylon crew socks tend to be the least expensive option. They come in a variety of colours, but the more common choices are black, navy blue, dark grey, olive green, dark brown, or midnight black. Men typically wear these in the form of athletic tape (not advised by athletic trainers). Women, on the other hand, wear them in the form of socks. Typically, women’s crew socks have a somewhat looser fit and are often dyed in pastel shades, though they are rarely made in bright colours. Men’s athletic socks tend to be tighter and are typically worn as shoes.
Ankle socks are traditionally reserved for athletes, but there are some fashion designers who are starting to include them in their wardrobes. In recent years, crew and athletic socks have become interchangeable. ORTC socks are worn over the calf of the leg. They can be worn above the knee, below the knee, or anywhere in-between. Athletic crew socks usually come in one colour – black, blue, white, or brown.
Another popular kind of socks are long or “tub” socks. Long or full-foot long, tube socks are great for wearing with skirts, pants, shorts, leggings, and even dresses! Tubers usually come up to mid-calf length and are dyed in black, brown, or other neutral colours. They are worn on the outside of the leg, below the knee, around the waist, or anywhere else that you want to wear them. These ORTC socks are usually made in the same fabric as sweatpants and are incredibly absorbent.
The advantages of wearing crew socks include: they’re stylish, comfortable, breathable, will keep your feet dry, and most crew socks are anti-allergic. They make great gifts too! ORTC socks are worn every day and will continue to be worn in the future because of their functionality and fashion.
