Venture- Cushioned Mini Crew Black

A shorter version of the Aspire, the Venture keeps you cooler when you’re on the go. This soft and durable mini crew fits snuggly just above the ankle with a reinforced top. From the deep contoured heel pocket, all the way down to the smooth seam across the toe, the extra plush full terry lined Venture stays comfy and always in shape, wash after wash and wear after wear.

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.

This is my third pair. I have the crew and the no show (although too cold to use right now). This is a great sock: it keeps my ankles warm and is not bulky under a skinny pant. It's also just as cushioned and soft as the others.

Amazing socks!

Very soft, comfortable, made my 12hr shifts much easier to bear! <3

Venture- Cushioned Mini Crew

Got these socks because of arthritic feet, and they are wonderful. Lots of cushioning, and they are warm and soft. They wash and dry beautifully, too. Fantastic socks, as always.


These are my favorite lounging and weekend socks, not too high and not too short, just right and very fluffy and soft. All three colors have been great.

Venture-Cushioned mini crew

Definitely a soft thick cushy sock. Large size is a perfect fit. A Christmas gift for my son who is very hard on shoes & socks. He loves them. Hope you have the 3-pack available soon.
Happy New Year Zkano!

Very comfy sock

These socks are very comfortable, just the right amount of cushioning.

Simply amazing

I bought a few of these and a couple other pairs for my husband, as part of a "cotton anniversary" present for him... and promptly took over a pair of these low "sport" socks. They are so comfortable, absolutely non-sweaty, non stink producing (even all day running around in low boots) and wash well and... I think we need to order a few more pairs ..

Great socks!

Quality material and just the right height for my needs.

Great for Sensory Sensitive

Our whole family loves Zkano socks, and these are just the latest addition to our love. My son's feet finally got large enough to start wearing these, so we thought we'd try them. He has sensory issues, and absolutely *despises* wearing socks. As in, will sit in a puddle to rip them off of his feet in public if the tiniest bit of discomfort is there. *TINIEST* bit, I mean it.
He likes these, he said. "They're pretty good."
This is as if Heaven opened and angels sang, just so you know. Kudos, Zkano! You continue to rock our world and our feet. Fantastic!

Pillows for Your Feet

This is going to sound like hyperbole, but wearing these as opposed to my cheap Hanes black sport socks is like wearing pillows on my feet. I've never paused while walking before and thought "god, my feet are *so* comfortable right now" before buying these socks. And now I do it all the time. They are incredibly soft and supportive without being bulky at all, and I don't know how they manage it, except to say they're brilliant.
