We’ve been very clear about our stance on socks. Socks are an accessory that time after time, season after season, is lost in the ether, forgotten somewhere in the crowd of standout sweaters or new-tech outerwear. Yet, socks stand by us faithfully, keeping our feet warm, and quietly rounding out our fits in style. We see you, socks. At Highsnobiety we know that socks maketh the fit, and now that we’re rolling steadily into fall/winter, the chunky sock is the sock for us.

Not only are chunky socks a heartwarming comfort that’s more needed than ever in 2020, they’re also an eye-catching accessory that shouldn’t be overlooked. Whether you’re continuing the socks-and-sandals trend into the colder months, or just looking for something worthy of filling the space between your shoes and pants, selections from Kapital, Gucci, and more should fit the bill.

There's something about this pair of chunky Gucci socks that feels like your grandma could have knitted them. Admittedly, she'd have to be very skilled to perfectly embed the intarsia logo to the ankle, but we've seen more unlikely things before.
