Frequently Asked Questions.

Q: What are sol + sokras made of?

A: Typically, a Nylon / Lycra blend. About 72% / 28%. Super breathable and lightweight. In some cases, we may knit our socks with Coolmax or another moisture-wicking yarn. This will be noted on the individual product page.

All sol+sokra socks are knitted with the highest-quality, advanced knitting technology on 220+ needle count machines, ensuring the softest knit and most solid weave possible.

Q. How do I know what size to order?

A: sol + sokra sizing is by shoe size, like a typical sock. It's best to pay attention to the sizing tabs on the individual project page. We also note calf size, so if you have smaller feet, but larger calves, you may want to go up a size. Compression should never hurt or be uncomfortable, so select the fit that's best for you.

Q. The word 'compression' freaks me out.

A: That's not a question, but we know how you feel. We sometimes use the phrase 'infused with compression' because our socks are like normal socks, just better. They are not heavy medical grade compression socks; they're not going to constrict or bind, but they still provide important health and wellness benefits.

sol + sokras are lightweight, breathable, easy to put on, and just feel so amazingly good. They truly are made for everyone. See the list below...

Q: I'm in my 20s, 30's, ...Why should I wear anything with compression?

A: Prevention is the best defense against signs and effects of aging: spider veins, swollen legs, varicose veins and tired, achy feet. We all know we should drink water, exercise, eat right and moisturize. Think of compression as another weapon in your beauty arsenal - like moisturizer that conceals or foundation with SPF. It's all-in-one and your legs will thank you now...and later. 

Q: What can I wear open-toe and grip sol+sokras for?

A: This summer, we introduced our open-toe collection of knee-highs and anklettes. Originally designed for expecting mothers to wear in hotter months with flip-flops or sandals, our darker colors can be worn with open-toe heels & booties in fall & winter.

They are also fantastic elixirs for tight muscles caused by over-stretching and studio sports like yoga, ballet barre + pilates. for their compression properties that support ankles and calves, keep legs warmed up to prevent injury, and help speed recovery after a workout. The open-toe allows for free range of motion and the balls of feet remain free so gripping is never an issue.

Sol + sokras should be worn for yoga, pilates, barre and other stretching & core-based workouts.

 Q. You're sold out of my favorite style. When can I re-order it?

A. We manufacturer your sol + sokras in small batches, which enables us to design & order small, quality product runs and develop more styles without filling up a warehouse with unused stock.

Like all retailers, we try to anticipate the needs and desires of our customers, but sometimes we simply run out. When an item sells out, you can click on the 'notify me' button on the item's product page and get notified when an item is back in stock.

Q: What makes sol+sokra socks better than ordinary socks?

A: To start, sol + sokras are designed with a special knit called compression that helps increase your circulation. The circular knit creates a massaging sensation for your legs that lasts throughout the day. What ordinary sock can do that? Simply put, increased circulation contributes to healthy, happy, more gorgeous and lovable legs.
