              Want to make your own socks? 5 tips to make them look GREAT! 

Getting custom socks made is great. It is a great feeling to design your own socks and see your team wear them. However, when you actually start to make your own socks, you realize something; designing good looking socks isn’t as easy as you thought it would be. You never thought that socks would be hard to design, but that’s just how it is. As long as you follow these pointers, you should be able to create amazing looking socks that will actually look good when worn.  

The Sock Color  

The first thing you have to determine is the sock color. When you check the customization options on the Socks Rock website, you will be a bit intimidated by just how many ways you can customize the sock; their color options are fantastic.  

When you design your own socks, you have to make sure that the base color of your sock supports the overall design you are going for.  The sock color will mostly be hidden behind the show except for the front part, which is why you need something that will look great as an accent.  

The Stirrup Color  

This is going to be the most visible color when you make your own socks. The stirrup is the part that will be the most exposed so you need to think of the color here carefully. The stripes are also over the stirrup, so the color of the stirrup needs to be something that goes well with the striped. If you are going for dark stripes, you should go for a light stirrup color, and if you are going for light stripes, you should go for a dark stirrup color.  

There are certain dark on dark colors that will look great too – red looks great on black – but it will not be very visible. You can also choose a white stirrup and use any light color you want – light colors look okay on white, but dark colors get too muted on black.  

The Stripes  

The stripes are probably the most important part of the process to design your own socks – because they add a certain flair to the socks. You will need to visualize how the stripes will look over your chosen stirrup color if you want the end product to look good.  

The good news is that the Socks Rock website shows you a preview of what your chosen colors look like, so we recommend playing around with different colors until you find what you want. You can choose the color of the 4 stripes (the ‘outer’ stripes) and the 2 stripes (the inner stripes). One look we like is keeping the 2 stripes the same color as the stirrup but making the 4 stripes different.
