Aspire- Cushioned Crew

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.

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.

Great to have these in black

[I wrote a full review for the White Aspire. It's great to have black, for something more or less informal but not sports]
I am so old that I remember pre-GMO cotton. Even 'cheap' socks we used up in High School and College basketball lasted a season. And let me tell you, those days were gone at least 20 years ago. Gone until, that is, Zkano revived a necessary business and not only revived it, but actually put some real enthusiasm into their work. I honor those great sock makers who can make socks which do lose their elasticity within six weeks In fact, I have ab- and used my Zkano cotton socks for a year. I can sound the trumpet further but you might think I am a shill. No, I am what used to be called a 'Satisfied Customer.' In fact, if you think these are higher priced than the bundles of Costco socks (the price is higher but the value is FOUR TIMES the value), then you have to rethink value. You will NOT get any allergic reaction to the cotton. You will not lose elasticity, even if you use hot in the drying cycle (best not to, really). You will not experience bunching, bad fit nor sliding of the tube part into your ankles. And you will enjoy the variety. Other organic sock makers have my respect, yes they do. But there are important differences, particularly with the crew sock fit. Enough no?
