Frequently Asked Questions


Why The Laughing Sock?
The Laughing Sock is dedicated to making your sock game on point. We offer the best quality socks with totally awesome designs for everyday use from working in to the office to playing a little b ball on the court. You are going to love how you feel in these socks!
Are sock sizes and shoe sizes the same?
No, they are actually quite different!
Standard women’s socks are size 9-11. This sock size corresponds to a women’s US shoe size 5-10.5.
Standard men’s socks are size 10-13. This sock size corresponds to a men’s US shoe size 7-12.5.
King Size men’s socks are size 13-16. This corresponds to a men’s US shoe size 12-15.
Where are your socks made?
Currently we are working with several different suppliers and they have various methods of manufacturing. Some socks are proudly made in the USA while some socks are proudly made elsewhere. The country of origin is listed in each sock description… Note* if for whatever reason any sock manufacture exploits their workers we will not carry their product. I have complete confidence that this is not happening but if such it will be addressed.
How do I care for my socks?
Oh my gosh clean those stinky things!
All of our socks can be cared for by machine washing them in cold water, without bleach, and tumble drying on low.

Yes, at (888) 800-0614. Office hours are typically Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm EST.
