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.

comfortable with boots

We've been trying unsuccessfully to find a sock with enough cushion to be comfortable with leather cowboy boots. These are perfect! So glad they are made in the USA too

Love the cushion!

There's nothing like these socks when it comes to the thick cushion. Like surrounding your feet with marshmallows! I hope never to have to buy any other sock than Zkano!

Black Zkano Socks

Since I've been very happy with my longer, black zkano socks, we ordered the shorter style for my husband. He's been extremely happy with their thickness and quality!! They are nice and "cushy", and we'll both be ordering them in the future. Now, they're our "go-to" socks. Thank you!!!

Great socks

I have been buying Zkano socks for several years and have not been disappointed. These mini crew socks are the best I have bought for my husband. They last literally for years and fit well. He has also bought the regular crew socks and while other socks he has bought from other companies wear out within months of wearing and washing, the Zkano socks never wear out. I love that these socks are made in America is another reason why we will continue to buy these wonderful socks.


great wearing socks

white mini crew

Great sock, comfortable and absorbent. Problems with swelling and these don't come up too high as to cause problems.

Nice sock for diabetics

Nice fit and comfortable ,have a problem with leg swell,and these socks don't cut off circulation like so many others.
They are high enough to cover ankle and low enough to not cut off circulation

Mini Crew Black

My favorite socks! Thank you for restocking the Mini Crew in black.

Comfort and support

Purchased a three-pack for the cushion and the color, white, to wear at night after applying moisturizer for the winter wear my feet experience in Maine, healing those cracks and crevices... they are comfortable and do the job.

Love these socks!

I love these socks and it is awesome that they are made in Alabama, my home state! The cushioning is just right, soft and thick and I like the natural color. I have a problem with socks being too tight. I'm just very sensitive to that. I wear a women's size 8 shoe and got the women's medium. They are just a little tight. This style mini crew is a little looser at the top than the Tempo so I prefer this one. Next time I will try the men's size large.
