The Ridge is made for the strong athletic type with a softer side. Sitting comfortably just below the ankle, this durable no-show sock flies under the radar while its terry lined sole adds ample cushion. A specially designed heel tab and custom y-gore construction work together to prevent slipping and keeps this sock snug for the best possible performance and fit.

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.

    Ridge no-show

    These socks are AMAZING! Soft, cushioned, great fit, organic, and best of all MADE IN AMERICA. Absolutely equal to the Bombas socks I have. Will definitely buy more from this family company.

    Rebecca Taylor (New York, US)
    I love Zkano.

    I cannot believe I have had my Zkano socks for over a year and they are as good as new. I just bought more. 100% recommend this company!

    Jocelyn Schmidt (Queens, US)
    Super soft sport socks!

    These socks hit at just the right spot below the ankle to fit well, not bunch underfoot and are the no-show for my sneakers I was looking for. Zkano has been our family's sock choice for a few years now as we continue to be intentional about choosing organic material and US-made when possible.

    NL Knight (Keller, US)
    Happy feet in my new favorite socks!

    This is my first time ordering/trying Zkano socks (I ordered these in white as well) … I’m very impressed! USA made, soft & cushioned just right especially at the top of the heel! As a previous Reviewer stated they are a tad bit long for my shoe size 6 foot, but that is normal w/any sock that is made to fit several shoes sizes. I hope the longevity matches the comfort. If you’ve been looking for a good sock made in the wonderful USA, definitely make a purchase & try for yourself!👍🏽❤️

    rosemary mckay (Manhasset, US)

    Love these socks. they feel great. All 3 pairs!

    Kaitlyn A (Waukesha, US)
    Great socks

    I really like these and they are another step towards our family wearing natural fibers! The only downside is that they're a little big for my size 6 foot, but a lot of socks are so not a big deal. I will probably be purchasing more for my whole family.

    Anna (Los Angeles, US)
    Best perfect cushion sock

    These sock have perfect cushion and quality Cotton. Washes well and keeps its softness and shape. I will buy more!

    Kirk Bass

    Very nice socks! It’s rare to find cotton socks. Most others are made of plastic derivatives. These are comfortable, breathable, nice cotton.

    Jade M (Glendale, US)
    soft and durable

    My family loved these socks as this year's gifts. They split up the styles from the 3-packs and shared how these warm, comfortable, and thick socks were better than any others on the market. That the socks are made in a regional family-owned factory made my purchase even better.

    Customer (Northville, US)

    I purchased a 3-pack of black ridge socks in October 2015 & they are THE BEST! I bought them in an effort to solve a fit issue I had with my newly purchased Doc Marten oxfords. Docs don't come in half sizes, so my oxfords were a half-size bigger than other shoes/brands. So I needed to find a plush, no/low-type sock to wear with them. I also have sensitive skin, so I'm always looking for organic cotton if possible (my diet is also organic). I tried other brands like Maggie's & Sahara, but nothing was quite right. SOOO HAPPY I FOUND ZKANO RIDGE SOCKS!! They are the PERFECT socks for my Doc oxford fit issue - and the combo of Zkano ridge socks with Doc oxfords is BY FAR my fave footware combo of all time! It's now July 2022 & these black socks have BARELY faded at all - and I wash them all the time. Extremely impressed with the quality - the fibers & structure of the socks are still GREAT! I *HIGHLY* RECOMMEND THESE SOCKS!!
