# What are mid-calf socks?
Mid-calf socks are the shorter cousins of knee-high socks and sit halfway up your leg.
# Why wear mid-calf socks?
Mid-calf socks are ideal for slim-fit trousers that don’t necessarily leave enough room for longer socks. Due to their length, they are slightly less warm than knee-high socks. While we started by selling knee-high socks, 90% of our bestsellers are mid-calf models!
