Old School Cushioned Crew- Heather

Inspired by the old school tube socks we made back in 1991, this sock is a striped version of our Aspire. It's cushioned in the foot and keeps its shape wear after wear.  The extra deep heel pocket and plush terry lining work together to provide optimum fit, maximum support and over-the-top comfort.

Our Process & Materials

Quality Materials. Streamlined, Sustainable Process

We’re very particular about what zkano socks are made of and how they are manufactured. Our organic cotton is grown on farms in the Southern U.S. by farmers we actually know. After harvest, cotton travels to the Carolinas where it is spun and dyed (with low-impact dyes) 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 throughout each step of the process, minimize waste and deliver a stellar product.

Additionally, our packaging, labels and marketing materials are printed within a 100-mile radius of our mill. That’s our whole process, straightforward and simple!

Giving and Recycling: Our irregular socks are donated to the mOM doll Project and to homelessness shelters and community organizations in Alabama.

We have some socks that are not fit for donations. These are repurposed or recycled and if recycled, they are transformed back into yarn used to make socks.

Perfect fit

Bought these for my father. He absolutely loves them !

Best socks!

I love these socks! I refuse to wear any other brand. Been ordering from Zkano for a few years now and they don’t disappoint. These socks have the perfect amount of cushioning and hold up really well. I do wish the 3 packs came in more colors but I’m not complaining.

My second set. Great socks.

The first ones are lasting so well I bought a second set. Highly recommended. Customer service is great too.

Superb Comfort

By far, these socks surpass anything else on the market

New Style is a perfect fit

This style is new and the socks are wonderful! They are soft and don't leave behind a ring on my leg from the binding being too tight!

My Very Happy Feet

Have been purchasing socks from Zkano for several years . . . comfy and long lasting. I especially like to support a company which has been so successful in regenerating a local family owned industry with all the benefits that accrue to its community.

Love these socks.

These are so comfortable and well made. I actually feel a little excited when I open my sock drawer and see a pair of these ready to go. Hats off to all the folks in Fort Payne.

Best small Men's Socks

My husband is so happy with his new venture cushion crew socks. Great fit for men with smaller feet. Glad you have
Medium & Large sizes. Not ever one can wear a one SIZE fit all sock, for comfort. Thank You, keep it up. We rate
these socks as 5 Stars.

Back to Zkano

After previously buying Zkano socks I decided to try the brand that advertises constantly on the radio. I have never really worn socks out at the heel before, but most of that other brand got holes in the heels after a relatively short time. Not happy. Meanwhile my old Zkanos were still going strong, so I went back to buying your socks again - thanks for making such good socks. I love that they are organic and made here too.

Work Socks

I started wearing these socks for work , as a Nurse standing on my feet 12 hour shifts everyday, and I can't say enough great things about them. I have had the same sock for over 5 years and thought with the coupon of 15% off I might order some new ones although the old ones are still doing great, secret DO NOT put them in the DRYER, just lay them on top and let them dry on their own.
They came and I felt the comparison along with my husband the five year old and the new ones just a little different, shock on others faces when I tell them my socks are 5 years old and here are the new ones.
