Old School Cushioned Crew- Kelly

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.

great for work

Perfect to wear when I'm working in the colder weather. They do well on my commute, with boots, and under my work shoes, crocs. (I'm a chef, so cute shoes are for the weekends.)

Great Socks

These socks fit great and feel wonderful. There is just the right amount of thickness. They wash and hold their shape.

Crew Heather Sock

This sock feels soft, comforting, and warm on my feet. They fit perfectly and are form fitting, but do not bind, or feel tight. I love them. I will purchase more.

Finally! A Sock that Fits!

I have bought untold numbers of crew socks for my husband's Size 13 feet. All have been miserable failures, until now. These socks are soft, wash well, and -- most importantly -- are easy to put on and take off. For some reason, all previous socks have been tight around the calf/ankle, even though his legs are normal in size. Yes, these cost more than we have paid in the past, but to see a sock that actually fits is well worth the extra price. We purchased one pair to see how they would do and then purchased four more pairs to get him through the workweek. So far, we love this sock!

Only ones

These are the only socks my husband will wear. He has gout and the "Gold Toes" become tight and stiff. Zkano are soft and easy to put one. They will get too dingy is the reason I replace them. He forgets he has them on, and outside and in the garage he travels.

The color and comfort of these socks are excellent.

Everyone in the family tries to claim these socks as their own.

The best all-purpose socks

I've probably owned more than 20 pairs of these crew socks, and just replace them when I eventually wear holes in the bottom. They look fine when dressed for work, and are soft and cushioned enough to wear all day, unlike men's dress socks. I wear these at least six days a week, pretty much for everything except hiking/camping (I like wool socks for that). Love these and will keep buying them as long as Zkano keeps making them.


Well made! All the socks are soft and warm. Feel wonderful wearing all the different styles and patterns.

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.
