Short ankle socks
« on: September 09, 2019, 02:23:02 pm »
What I want may not exist (which wouldn't be the first time)

But does anyone know of cotton rich with no visible 'brand/logo crap' in a single primary colour only, ankle socks that are:

1. Not those hidden 'trainer' liners (too low)

2. Ideally a maximum of 5mm above one's ankle bone (anything higher is unacceptable, as is turning excess length down

Nearest I've found are discontinued red coloured 'Firetrap' socks

The various colours I'm after are in order of preference, red + green and + yellow

Here the ideal length orange socks -



NB: Socks barely cover the ankle bones =  :thumbsup:

Deffo NO fluo  >:(

I have some white and grey ones, but can't recall where from - somewhere online I think.

inmotionproducts.com have some coloured ones, but they do have OZZO printed on them.

M&S women's 'anklet' socks are the right shape but wrong size and colour...

Google reveals a few options.
Cotton rich is the difficult part as most use 'technical' fabrics.

Don't know about Cotton Rich or Logo free but have you looked at running socks?

not in any of the colours you are looking for, I have some decathlon mid racket sports socks which are just above my ankle bone. https://www.decathlon.co.uk/rs100-adult-mid-3-pack-white-id_8488910.html so might be worth a look

Thanks for all the input and suggestions  :)

Even removing the cotton rich requirement, I've just spent an hour or so internetting and it seems I'm going to satisfy myself with what I've already got

RED https://www.amazon.co.uk/Levis-LeviS-168Sf-Ankle-Socks/dp/B00IOHFO98?th=1&psc=1 (purchased before they sold out and a it too low) cut.

RED Firetrap (discontinued trainer socks - slightly taller then 'no see' socks and almost perfect

GREEN https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07T1KB3YB/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 - deffo low 'no see'

PS just found these and ardered the last pair  https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RED-GOLD-AND-GREEN-WITH-SMALL-GANJA-WEED-LEAF-TRAINER-SOCKS-ROOTS-RASTA-REGGAE/162243877855?hash=item25c67d1bdf:g:VPwAAOSwzaJYBeUr  ;D
