How many times have you longed for some playful socks that fit comfortably around your calves? Socks that do not cut off circulation or roll down, or better yet, do not go up all the way like they are supposed to. Forget holiday themed socks… I have always loved them and wanted to play in them, but they NEVER went up past my lower shin. Well, your wide calf sock woes and worries are over, thanks to the launch of Xpandasox!
I had the pleasure of working and meeting them for FFFWeek this year. I was curious! Could this really be something that works for us!?! Let me tell you, when I got hyped and geeked about the possibilities? HYPED. I mean. I do not have a super wide calf, but mines is wide enough to be constantly frustrated or saddened when I want to shop the sock selections at Target. IJS.

So listen. These socks? The Xpandapanel™ allows each sock to stretch 24+ inches! And to give you a great idea of fit, they feature their socks UNRETOUCHED, on a variety of legs sizes and shapes! They have from the most basic of colors to the playful lace backs that happen to be my favorite.
Add that I am now in a part of the country that has seasons, begs for layers and boots, these puppies are a staple for my weather! Now, I must add, they ship across the US and Canada, not internationally yet… but it is a goal for them! And if you are curious about sizing (in relation to shoe sizes) their socks sizes translate as follows:
9-11: Fits women’s shoe size 5-10
10-12: Fits women’s shoe size 10-12
10-13: Fits men’s shoe size 8-12

Did you catch that? Men’s sizes? Yes. They do have unisex wide calf socks too! Get you and your boo in on the action or if you have a calf larger than a 24 inch, then YES, you can rock the unisex as well!
AND, because I love to push the envelope, I DID ASK them about THIGH HIGHS! You bet I did! I want a segzy thigh high for these thigs boo. I need them. And guess what!?! They are bringing them in! EEK!!!!
AND there is a charitable element too! 1 pair purchased = 1 pair donated through The Sock Bank! For every pair of Xpandasox® purchased, we will be depositing 1 pair into their “Sock Bank.” Did you know that socks are the most asked for item in homeless shelters in the USA?
Well, they are and Xpandasox has partnered with organizations that will withdraw socks from their bank to give to those in need. They have also have been challenged by an organization to donate 200,000 pairs of socks by March 2016. The socks that they will donate will be black antimicrobial socks, to promote healthier feet and that cushioned on the bottom for added comfort and more resilient to wear and tear!

Even cooler? Coming in October, there will be XPANDASport!For those of us who rock out while working out, there are socks that will work with our wide calves! Woot!
How cool is this, right?!? I am beyond hyped and geeked about more options to play in and the brands that give it to us!
Which ones are you looking at? Are you as hyped as me?
I’m all about these socks! I need a pair of the sport ones for early morning jogs now that it’s getting chilly here in BMore! Definitely going to share with my Well Fit Curves readers! And of course I need a pair for knee-high boot season! Great post!
Yeahhhhh! Happy you liked it! They are an awesome company!!!!
im thankful they are finally making plus size sock, I need the dress and the workout sock. Been waiting on them for years.
I was just looking for socks that might actually STAY UP under my trousers! Thanks Boo!
Always honey! I got you!
Check out the plus section of SockDreams.com. They have notes on each pair about how much they stretch. Not all the plus size socks are really plus, imo, but they have a good selection.
Now they need to make neoprene ones to line boots for those of us who go fishing and hunting! Or waterproof fleece.
