Tempo- Cushioned Anklet Natural

A new striped version of an old favorite. Like our original Tempo, this 1/4 crew fits just above the ankle and provides the same support, comfort, and breathability. The 2" ribbed welt top, deep pocket heel, and mesh ventilation system along the top of the foot keep the fit cool. Cushioned terry sole is extra cozy and keeps your feet supported all day long.

    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.

    These are soft and have a nice cushion! The black stripes are just fun and reminds me of tube socks I wore many moons ago! The cooling it is to provide will help during hot summer days! I ordered red striped ones as well! Hope they make green and blue stripe this year!

    Love these socks

    Super comfy sport socks.

    Great sock.

    I have bought these for years and they are the only ones I found that fit well and that I liked.

    Sporty, cushy, and durable.

    I love these as my sporty socks. They aren't too big for my women's wide size 8 feet.

    They are so soft and comfortable! Please make more of the blue with white stripes.

    Comfortable, good quality

    This is my third pair of this style. They’re are comfortable, good weight/quality made sock!

    Best socks I have found

    I tried these a few years ago and loved them. I am a type 2 diabetic and made the mistake of trying "diabetic" socks, but I quit. These are the most comfortable socks ever, and last longer than any other socks I've tried. I'm hooked!!

    LOVE Them!!!

    Took them on a vacation — I walked and drove all over wearing these socks and was cushioned and comfortable footwear. I will definitely order again in the future!

    It really is all that!

    Let me begin by mentioning that I am older than dirt. I have owned a lot of socks over the years. For many, I was glad to find that the sock monster ate them.

    I’m very active, and as a fairly big guy, I can wear out a pair of socks...quickly. My first impression, when I opened up the box they came in, was the quality construction. It was that much better, visually. I have been wearing them for a few weeks now. I’m in Florida. They breath well, and they are the most comfortable socks I have ever owned.

    I wear a size 12 eeee shoe. I would recommend the large size to anyone in that general size range.

    Cotton Socks

    Hard to find cotton socks. I am allergic to polyester so I want cotton. The socks are kind of tight. Otherwise are A ok.
