|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.

|These are called the "Sonic Athletic Crew Socks".
They're crew style/length, but look at the texture on the leg part of the sock. It is thicker there/has ridges, so that is probably the athletic styling rather than a normal thin sock. These are adults sizes only (which is nice, fits anyone) They have neo classic getting ready to run 3/4 view Sonic on the top part, above a red/white/blue band. The foot part is lightly checkered in 2 similar blues, with gray heel and toe. Sonic's name is spelled out large, across the top of the foot. Notice the added red/white/blue band that occurs around the toe area, it's a nice added detail.
With plenty of Sonic elements, good all-over design and elements that show with the shoe on or off, this is a great pair of socks.
|Good design is more than slapping a logo onto something. The art here is a good choice, and everything is part of the sock fabric, it's not going to wear out or rub off. Having elements on display regardless of shoe is also really good. This is quite the worth-while pair of socks. It is likely to be an Amazon 2020 winter item, but where else could they be found, and how much is it?|
|More sublimate socks...
You've seen the Sonic pair before, but now the company adds a solo-Tails pair as well. They're calling it "Tails Gold Rings Dye Sublimate Socks". They use the same rings background as the Sonic pair, but the rest is orange to go with modern turn-back pose Tails. The dye application method means it can't wear off, so the socks will always be bright and colorful. Both of these are adults sizes too, which is great for anyone to wear.
|You've seen the Sonic full-body-design socks now you can see...
Knuckles. The Sonic socks were successful enough that now they've added classic style Knuckles to the 'crew'. These red socks have all of forward-facing Knuckles as part of the weave (so it can't wear off) Like the previous pair, his shoe toes are the sock's toe, the legs/fists are the foot part & the face/chest area is the ankle and leg part. He is borderless mostly for his head to try and give the effect 'the character is the sock'. The background for where the legs are is gray. The over-all effect is kind of cartoony/wacky but they are classified as novelty type socks so that's probably fitting.
These are on Amazon but they may also be a Spencers Gifts item. They appear in fall winter 2020.
|Possibly in time for Christmas 2020 (but didn't know at the time)
Comes this fun gift set of Sonic socks. They are packaged in a fun Sega Genesis shaped & printed box. All 3 pairs are crew length, and sized for adults. As is befitting of the Genesis gift box, they're all classic style. A red sock with blue toe & cuff has the classic Sonic face and ring pattern. The middle pair is all black with colored confetti & simple silouhette style heads for Sonic, Tails & Knuckles. It MAY spell something out in Japanese (but what?) The last pair is light blue with dark blue toe, heel & cuff. It has a few simple geometric designs & 1 Sonic art high up on the leg part of the Sock. Does it look like the fist for this art is too big? What's going on here?
