May and early June may sometimes act like summer, but late spring is still a far cry from the practiced heat of July and August. We know some of you live where it is hot sun-up to sun-down and you’re scoffing right now, but even on 70-80°F afternoons the mornings around here can hover around a comparatively chilly 50°F. That’s a big jump!
If you’re going in to work, you can put together something with layers to get you from the chilly outside morning to the warm after-work afternoon. But what about days at home? If you haven’t got central air, you’re probably like me, all windows open to the cold morning, collecting a bit of chill so the house doesn’t heat up quite so much in the sun.
That’s why we didn’t feel that goofy introducing the fleece knee highs from Polar Feet. They’re perfect for paring with shorts on chilly, pre-summer mornings.
One of our Dreamers is particularly stoked, as they plan on getting a pair to wear camping. Their feet will be warm on cool woodsy mornings and in those surprisingly chilly evenings around the campfire. Plus, they fit great into boots!
What we particularly love about these fleece knee highs is the range of fit! Fleece doesn’t have as much give as knit materials, so we did some testing to figure out calf sizing. If a 19 inch cuff stretch isn’t enough, check out our versions in a wider calf, with about 23 inches of comfy, cozy stretch! What our smaller-footed folks loved was that, even on the larger calf size, the ankle wasn’t too baggy, tapering just the right amount but still offering about 12 inches of stretch at the narrowest part.
And bigger-footed folks were pleased too. Right now, the large foot size is only available in the Lumberjack style, but we tried it on our resident US men’s shoe size 11.5 EEEE (that’s 4x wide, plus he’s got a high instep!) and they fit beautifully.
If it’s already too hot where you live to even think of fleece, do future you a favour and pick up a pair to stash away until winter. Polar Feet is a tiny, wonderful company, and sometimes they have trouble keeping up with your demand for their delightful socks! When winter rolls around (even though it seems a million years away right now), your toes will thank you as they stay toasty.
And, of course, these fleece knee highs are perfect for our pals in the Southern Hemisphere, where they’ll be enjoying the start of winter any week now!
Not only is May National Bike Month but today is National Bike to Work (or school) day! We know that bicycling to work and school isn’t an option for everybody, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate Bike Month with some spoke-tacular socks!
Sock It To Me has three types of coverage in their bicycle covered design, with knee highs and midcalves in classic black and white with contrasting yellow and their new anklet in bright red and royal blue!
Two more bike-centric styles from KBell are made for bigger feet and offer some great visual pop when rocked beneath cuffs rolled out of the way.

This year, Mother’s Day is May 11th, and hooray for mommas! If you’re looking for a socky treat for a mom in your life (or you’re a mom who is treating themselves), we’ve got some sweet and snuggly options for you!
In previous years on the Sock Journal, we’ve looked at our Mother’s Day Favourites collection, maternity tights and sweet indulgences. It can be tough thinking of good Mother’s Day themes for posts, since moms are people and people love so many different things! I was pretty stumped for what to do this year, but then I realized the holiday gives me the perfect excuse to show off my favourite thing: matching big and little socks.
Probably one of us Dreamers’ favourite things to see is an order with a matching pair of grown-up size socks and baby or kid size socks. The big socks are like the little socks’ momma! So if your feet are the same size or bigger than your moms’ get them one of our eight new plastic gift card designs so they can get what they really want, then sit back and get ready to go “aaaaaw!”
We were excited to be able to offer our fabulous Extraordinary Harvest Rainbows in a family range of sizes. And since they are extraordinary, the Youth fits down to toddler toes and the Junior fits up to middle grade kids (depending on everybody’s shoe sizes, of course!).
Since our Dreamy Bamboo Patterned OTKs are only available in a smaller size in the Ivory, the Little Dreamer Bamboo Socks are a separate entry, but they fit the same great range the Harvest Rainbows do!
