We offer three different compression options to fit your chosen activities and lifestyle. Compression socks support your muscles, especially around the arch of your foot, and prevent bunching and slipping for a perfect fit every time. Whether you prefer a firm hug or relaxed support, there's a compression level to fit your needs. Click here to learn more about each of the compression levels we offer so you can find the best option for your next adventure.


* Look for this bar to indicate each sock's compression level compared to other Swiftwick socks, from firm (far left) to relaxed (far right) when shopping.

Our socks come with the recommended instructions of "Machine Wash Cold. Tumble Dry Low. No Bleach or Iron." For more information on how to care for your Swiftwick socks so they last a lifetime, click here.

Swiftwick sizing is based on your corresponding shoe size. Please refer to the size chart below:

 Swiftwick icon MEN WOMEN EURO
S 3-6½ 4-7½ 34-38
M 7-9½ 8-10½ 39-42
L 10-11½ 11-13 43-45
XL 12-15 13½-16½ 46-49

The initial variation in size largely depends on the time that has passed since they were knit. Newly knit socks will tend to be a bit longer than socks that were knit a few months ago. This is due to some residual moisture content in the fibers and a natural setting process that occurs with the elastic over time.

The fitted size of each sock, in other words, the number of courses or stitches along the length of the sock, should be exactly the same. It is also not uncommon for socks to appear different after a wash since they are pressed before being packaged. After a couple of wears and washes, you should notice no difference between the pairs and this will not affect functionality in any way.

All of our socks can be worn on either foot. Our socks are marked with the size on the bottom. If your sock has a colorful "L" on the bottom, that indicates a size Large, not left.
