Go faster in Sonic Socks!
Yes, there are enough specifically Sonic socks to warrant entire pages of cataloging. Socks were fairly uncommon in the 90s classic era, but they have seemingly become more popular as time went on. Now, you can get little kids, regular kids and adults sizes of Sonic (and friends) themed socks. If the sock fits...wear it for Sonic style! If it is known where and what price it is, that information is usually posted along with the picture. Keep in mind that some 'kids/regular' socks will also fit some adults so be sure to investigate if you are shopping.

Step it Up Kids Sonic Sock Pack Walmart
This is the "Step It Up Sock Pack"
It's a Walmart exclusive, and, sadly...it's another pack only for little kids. Your feet probably won't fit into these if you're over 7 years old, which is too bad because it's a fun, bargain priced set. There are 5 different ankle sock pairs here. The first is blue with running Sonic & rings. The next pair is gray with the slogan "Step It Up" written in blue. The white pair has only the 'speed booster' pattern from the games across the middle. The middle pair is blue with black tips & has a Sonic portrait in a red cog / gear shape. The last pair has 'looking back' Sonic with more rings.

The designs are woven into the socks, so they won't wear off with washing & use, which is always a nice feature. It's great to see modern Sonic in action oriented designs for something fresh...just too bad they're so small. This pack is about 5.50 at Walmart in 2019. It should be in the boys clothing section. The paper tag is modern with checkers, and is that "SEGA" tag that keeps popping up. It is distributed by "High Point Design" but that's not the same thing as a maker, like bioworld etc, would be.

Sonic Rings Tall Crew Socks It's still sock season in 2019!
Here comes another exciting pair to collect. These are called the "Sonic Rings Crew Socks". The 'crew' is the style, meaning they'll go up to mid-calf or so. They're made of a stretchy material with slight ridges on the leg area. What's special about them though, is the process used to put the dye on. It is "Dye-Sublimated" socks. That means the dye was vaporized onto the socks so it can't come off/wear off or get raggedy like other types can. Anything with this special process will cost a little more, but will be much more durable.
The design is pretty fun, with bright blue background, scattering of gold rings, the modern logo, and Jumping-twist modern Sonic art. He's really big too, so he'll go across the top of the foot and up the leg. The toe tips are black. These are adult size socks reported to be on Amazon in spring 2019, but how much do they cost?
Die Sonic Socks Black Crew Sock
Here it goes again...
Sonic shown 'dieing' on his own merchandise. Here, a pair of black adult size crew socks has the 'death of Sonic' sprite used as he 'loses his rings' as the all-over design for the socks. This is caused by designers not knowing what each sprite means in the game, and they just pick 'any upset looking one' to a scatter ring background and call it a day. However, they seem to always wrongly choose the one where he's dead already. Why Sega or whoever looks over the license doesn't correct them is a big mystery.
The other mystery here is why it's a classic product with a modern tag on there. But look at the bototm of the tag where it's black/marked "CREW"...that's usually a hallmark of BioWorld's tags both modern & classic. Is it by BioWorld & they just used the wrong tag?
The design would be ok otherwise, as the rings are a nice contrast with the black, the Sonic design is colorful, and everything is a part of the socks/threads/weave itself so it's not going to just wear off. These were found at Walmart, but is 1 pair really 8 dollars? It seems a little steep for that store, even in the adults area. Photo by Taaron
Kids No-Show Low Sock Set 5 Still socks! Sets of socks! Sonic socks....
Fall 2019 brings yet more Sonic socks. This time it is a set of "Kids No-Show" socks. There are 5 in the set, and the cut is made to be below even an ankle-sock. It is to hide that you have socks on at all. (But what is the point of that?) The designs are nice, as they are woven directly into the fabric, they won't wear off. The theme here is modern, with the character name along the bottom of each sock & the portrait on top.
You get arms-cross Sonic on a black/gray, a white sock with rings, fist up Knuckles on a gray/red, a black sock with rings, and standing Tails on a gray/yellow.
It's possible that these are a Walmart set, but they are child sizes only. They may also appear on Amazon. However, they should always be reasonably priced at about 9 or 10 for the set.
Game Stop Adult Crew Socks Mania Art Game Stop's branch-out into merchandise continues with some socks.
Sonic socks...of course, and each pair here is 8 dollars in 2019. They are crew style socks for adults, so they'll fit anyone which is good news. The other bit of good news is that it uses Mania type classic art (good for promoting Mania) that's sewn right into the fabric so it won't wear off. The aqua pair has fist-up Sonic with squares & triangles on a sparse background. The blue pair has leap/side Sonic with the date 1991 in black down one side. That one is interesting because it uses a sort of 'cut out' look white line around the stock art to highlight the edges in a new way. The other pair, having the Sonic art at the top is a good move, because that way it's easy to see/doesn't hide inside a shoe. Both pairs are good picks, and are made by Bio World. Photo & owned by
Classic Style Crew Sonic Socks Target Classic Crew!
These taller Sonic socks appear in Target in winter 2019. What's great, is that they're in the Men's socks area, so they will fit anyone. They are both blue, and classic style with the design woven in so it can't rub off/wear out. The first pair is more of an aqua, with checker stripe at the top & middle of the foot. It has gray toe & heel, and 'getting ready to run' Sonic stock art. The 2nd pair is more of a middle blue, with red toe & heel, plus a white stripe around the foot area. This spells out Sonic's name in red vertically on the leg part. The Sonic art here is neat, because he's a white line with white detail on a blue background, with red shoes. This keeps the stock art looking fresh by doing something new with it that's fairly complex...yet the stitching does hold the detail and it looks nice! This is a Bio World Item. Photo & owned by:
Bio World Casual Crew Sonic Sock 5 Set Socks a-plenty!
Here's a cool 5 pack from Bio World. These are "Casual Crew" style, and they are in adults sizes so they should fit most. They are cheerful, slightly pastel, and classically styled but likely with neo classic art. The colored backgrounds, scattered characters & complimentary trim keeps the set
looking fresh while still fitting with classic. The first pair has light blue with various poses for Sonic, the second is pink/brown with various poses for Knuckls, the third is peach with various poses of Tails, the 4th is sort of aqua with all the same running Sonic and the last is also aqua but with yellow trims and mostly just rings with 1 Sonic face near the top. These can be found at # in winter 2019. Photo & owned by
Red Toe Crew Sonic Socks BioWorld Here are some adult size Crew Style Sonic Socks by Bio World. These were sold at Game Stop in 2019. They seem to be about 7.99 for the pair, without a sale. They have red toe, heel and top cuff, gray stripes mid-foot, and a proflie running classic Sonic stock art on the leg part. The design is sewn into the sock, so it can't wear off. He is full color, but has a blue outline/border instead of gray or black, and also the pupil is blue. (no black thread used for the sock at all) It's good to see adults sizes socks that anyone can wear. Photo & owned by
Old Navy Classic Crew Socks Here is a pair of Old Navy socks.
These appear in winter 2019 / 2020, and they fit adults sizes. They are in the Men's section of the store, and should be about 8.00 for the pair.
These are black, with a white & blue stripe and blue heel & toe area. They have a woven-in classic Sonic face with white border. It only uses blue & white thread for the colors. The tag is a little confusing, it says "Classic" but then also "Crew Socks Tube Socks". This conflicts, because a tube is not a crew, that's 2 different types of sock and 1 can't be both at once. It looks like it is a true crew, however because the sock is clearly shaped. (Tube is not) It's a good ordinary but solid design.
And now for something slightly strange...
Here's a new pair of socks for 2020 by Bio World. They fit adults sizes/anyone but...they're kinda wierdly designed. Rather than having a typical "Sonic Design" they try to form his whole body AS a sock. And because he is not generally a sock-shaped person...it does not have all that much success. The face is ok as a wrap-around thing, but the belly dot is crazy wide and almost abstract. The arms appear coming out of the neck area, and the space between the legs is indicated with a distracting black rectangle that's also too wide. The shoes are foreshortened...wrapping around near the toe? Which is then blue again?
These are odd to look at, classic of style, and...I guess they're a novelty?
Sonic Body on Socks Bio World
Bio World Adults Sonic Socks 2 Pack Gray Bio World produces 2 more socks for summer 2020.
This is the factory photo, which shows they are in adults sizes to fit anyone (yay) and the designs are sewn into the fabric so they can't wear off. The socks are gray, with blue heel, cuff, and toe. The first pair has some neoclassic art for Sonic with feet forward and one fist held out. It has black double stripes for the foot area & below the cuff. The other sock has a scattering of all the same classic Sonic face all over the whole sock.
What's odd with the first one is they DO have black thread, so why didn't they use it for his eyes? He'd look better and sharper if they were black. (The second pair doesn't use black thread so it would have cost more to use it for just the eyes so you can see why they wouldn't in this instance) But, how much are these, and where are they sold?
Kohls Boys No Show Ankle Sock 5 Pack Sonic Kohls is going wild for Summer Sonic Socks in 2020! Here are TWO kids socks 5 packs to collect or choose from. You can order these on their website too, so no one should miss out, even if the local store has closed (As could happen in 2020/virus) Girls No Show Ankle Socks Amy 5 Pack
At above left is the boys 5 pack. These are 'no show' socks, meaning they're just anklets. They're all modern, with the deigns sewn in/so they don't wear off. You get standing hand/hip Sonic with red and black, thumbs up in a ring Sonic with gray and blue, a scattering of forward & 3/4 Sonic faces with red & gray, gold rings on blue/red & a white outline Sonic on blue with red.
Above right is the Girls Set, which is all classic, and still anklet no-shows. There's Sonic pointing at rings on light blue, shrugging Amy on pink, wink-amy Face in pink on white, cheering Tails on pink & scattering of Sonic faces on light blue. Amy makes the set more fun as she is uncommon on socks.
Tall Socks Pixel Art 2 Pair Sonic Tails Here are 2 pairs of tall socks that appered in 2020...
But where? They are probably mid-calf-length (so not knee-highs) adult size socks. The first pair is black, with impatient/toe tap pixel Sonic at the top, while the rest except the foot area has a pattern of scattered chili-dogs. The other pair is a middle-blue color with scattered rings, and pixel-Tails who is in his flying pose at the top. Having the character art at the top of the sock is the best design decision, because that way it is always seen. Putting it on the foot guarentees it's always hidden in a shoe.
You can write in for credit if you know where these are sold.
Walmart 6 Pack Sonic Socks No Show This 6 (or really 8) pack of socks appears in Walmart only in fall season 2020. So go grab 'em because they're reasonable in price at about 9 dollars for the whole set!

These are modern designs, with the character face directly on the top of the foot alone. The designs are part of the sock's fabric/weave so they can't ever wear off of the sock or go bad. The faces of the characters

(since they are portrait socks) are also large enough to appear smooth/well done instead of jagged or wrong like what happens when detail vs stitching gets too fine/tiny. You will get Sonic on black, Knuckles on gray, Shadow on burgundy, Eggman on black, Tails on blue and "No Time For Games" slogan in black on a mottled gray sock. What about that 8 pack? Well, it comes with "Bonus" 2 extra pairs of socks built in--but these are generic, simply a black pair and a dark gray pair with no design. They're bundled in to pad the sock-count and attempt to make more of a bargain. Which---at the price these are it actually kind of does because about a dollar a pair is really ok.
These will be found (probably) in a free standing cardboard display cubby that WILL have the Sonic logo on the side. Rummage the cubbies until you find the right size sock, as these DO come in SM, Med, L, XL so even if it's marked for kids getting the big size may make it still fit you. They are no-show/ankle socks so you probably can't wear it with hightops shoes. The designs are quite nice, as is the inclusion of Eggman in the set. Going with the large format faces really helps these look good. A recomended product.
