Sizing Philosophy

Bodies come in all shapes and sizes. And socks should too. What makes Wide Open different is that we challenge traditional sizing norms by designing socks not just for length, but for width – specifically foot width, ankle width, and leg width. That’s why we offer a full range of inclusive sizing for anyone who wants or needs wider-fitting socks.

Find Your Size

Regardless of how wide your feet are, your shoe size is a good indicator of what your Wide Open Sock size will be. Use the chart below to determine the best size for you based on your shoe size. All our socks stretch up to a 4E width.

Are You Width Us?

Still unsure if our socks are wide enough? Take a minute with your measuring tape – using the measurement guide below – to obtain a more accurate reading. With your measuring tape directly against your skin, using the dotted yellow line as a guide, follow along to accurately measure your foot, ankle, and leg. Please note that if you’re between sizes, we recommend sizing up.

Leg Circumference

While standing with your foot firmly on the floor, measure just below mid-calf (not the widest part of your calf).  

Ankle Circumference

Wrap the measuring tape in a complete circle around the bottom of your ankle.

Foot Circumference

Measure around the widest part of your foot between your arch and toes.

Sock Cushion

Cushion is created by knitting soft terry loops into the sock. No cushion socks (you guessed it) have no terry loops.

Sock Weights

Sock weight refers to the weight of the actual yarn. Thus, the lighter the yarn, the lighter the sock.

  • Lightweight Socks

    Super fine yarn helps regulate body temperature, keeping feet light and dry.
