Aspire - cushioned organic cotton crew socks

Regular price$16
Single or 3 Pack


The Aspire is not your typical basic crew sock. This sock conforms to your foot and keeps its shape wear after wear.  The extra deep heel pocket and the plush terry lined foot work together to provide optimum fit, maximum support and over-the-top comfort.

  • Made in Alabama, USA
  • Foot Hugging Fit
  • Retains Shape & Elasticity Over Time
  • Family owned & operated, since 1991 
  • Comprised of 80% certified organic cotton, 15% nylon and 5% elastic
  • Manufactured in small batches at our family mill in Fort Payne, Alabama from organic cotton grown on U.S. farms, spun and dyed with low-impact dyes in the Carolinas.


Quality Materials. Sustainable Process.

Choosy. Meticulous. Uncompromising. When it comes to our materials and manufacturing, these all apply. We start with the highest quality materials, like organic cotton that is dyed with low-impact dyes. Our certified organic cotton is grown on farms in the Southern U.S. by farmers we actually know. After harvest, our cotton travels to the Carolinas where it is spun and dyed before arriving at our mill in Alabama.
We knit socks in very small batches at our family owned and operated mill. Our team of ten (including Mom and Dad) run the manufacturing process from start to finish. And, because our entire operation is under one roof, we're able to constantly monitor quality through each step of the process, minimize waste and deliver a stellar product. We do it all because we know a better process makes a better sock. 
We like to keep it all close to home. Our packaging, labels and marketing materials are printed within a small radius of our mill in Alabama and Georgia. 

Giving and Recycling. Our irregular socks are donated to homelessness shelters and community organizations in Alabama.

We have some socks that are not fit for donations. These, along with any manufacturing waste, are repurposed or recycled. When recycled, these are transformed into fiber used for carpet padding in the automotive industry. 
We can recycle your old socks too! For more info, please see our zkano Recycles page.

    nice socks

    Nice socks. Would like them more in XL size (12-14).

    Howard Krekel (San Antonio, US)
    I love these socks

    I love these socks for several reasons. First, they are made in the USA. Second, they fit my feet nicely. Third, they last a long time and do not change size when you wash and dry them in the machine. Finally, they are cushioned and are comfortable to wear.

    Been Buying These For Over 12 Years - Best White Sock Ever

    I've been buying these socks since they were first released on The Grommet. I love the socks, and I love the "made in America" story. I just bought 9 more pair in preparation for the summer.

    Janise Cross (Middletown, US)
    Super Comfortable

    Purchased 1 year ago for my husband in a large size. Fits well, comfortable wearing, durable socks for outdoor yardwork. Excellent quality, workmanship, and made to last after repeated washings. Worth the price. A Zkano buyer from now on

    The best socks!

    I originally bought and reviewed these socks four years ago, and they quickly became my favorite socks. They're great, soft and warm, with just the right amount of cushioning. They don't bunch up or slip like some boot socks are want to do, instead fitting well. Even after four years of weekly wear they still look like and feel new (the only difference between them and the newer pairs I picked up last year is some very faint color fading). Superb products that last!

    Greg Smith (Huntsville, US)
    Good Fit and Comfort

    These socks fit me well and have a nice cushion feel.

    Catherine (Port Orchard, US)
    Great Socks!

    I bought these socks for my son for Christmas. He has allergies, so any reduction of stress is a blessing. These socks cushion his feet and keep him comfortable all day long. I love that they are made in the USA AND are organic! I hope you keep these in stock as the plain socks are more his style than patterned. Thank You!

    AMOS CAUSEY (Decatur, US)

    I was looking for socks that did not end up slipping off my feet and bunching up in my shoes during mountain climbing. So glad I found the Aspire cushioned socks. They are so comfortable and never slip off my feet.

    Glenn Turner (Jonesborough, US)
    Zkano Socks

    I haven't had this nice of a sock since the imports arrived many years ago. Soft, made in the USA comfort socks. They fit well and feel great. Now that I've found Zkano socks I'll never buy any other. While I've only tries Aspire-Cushioned Crew I would bet the other styles are just as nice.

    Leigh Troncale (Birmingham, US)
    A wonderful experience

    From the wonderful human being (not a robot)!who was so very helpful & kind, to the super quick delivery… I ordered one afternoon & my order arrived by noon the next day. Unheard of, not to mention the excellent quality of the socks you produce. My guys rave about the comfort of their socks! I’m a lifelong customer. Just wish all companies would take a lesson on your exceptional customer service & quality product. Thank you& keep up the great work!!!
