Can anyone recommend some good comfortable sock brands for work? Need to restock as most of the ones that I currently own are worn out.

I am looking for dark/black sock brands that are really comfortable + help you feel less pain when you are trying to break into new dress shoes for work

Icebreaker. Expensive but those bad boys come with a lifetime warranty

I actually really like the Dockers one's I've got, they run a little higher than I'd like up my leg, but overall very comfortable.

Depends on what you think is affordable, but my sock draw is very large (x-mas presents , mostly) and pretty diverse in terms of quality. Its weird that you do actually notice the difference between high and low quality socks quite a lot when sat down all day. My favorite 2 brands to wear are Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein, they just feel so much nicer to wear. The Ralph ones werent too expensive, 3 pairs for 15ish

The dude that used to run the Overheard in GS Elevator twitter account has a subscription sock order website where the pairs are $7 each and you can get them delivered at specific time intervals as you see fit.

No idea about quality but it does seem kind of convenient, unless they're so shitty they lose their shape after being run through a washer one time.

Most of them seem bit inappropriate as they only seem to offer flashy sock styles rather than conservative one type color (black/navy).

They are LEGIT.... I've only had them for 1 month and have gotten money's worth. Side note: the grey color is a really dark charcoal so may not perfectly match your traditional charcoal suit pants. The navy is a very stock shade. Didn't order black.

Darn Tough has a lifestyle line of dress socks that are a good value (i.e. 20/pair)

Happy Socks is great

For a subscription based platform look into Foot Cardigan

Best advice I've ever gotten was to buy new socks every three months and rotate out older ones. Nothing better/more satisfying than a new pair of socks.

Boardroom socks are solid if you like over the calf. Nothing fancy, but they don't disappoint.

yes, there is Holloway 223813 Electrify Sock which is very affordable and comfortable Calf length socks its main feature is that extra cushioning and support in areas of the foot and ankle that are susceptible to rubbing, impact or injury :) know more info for this sock visit my signature :)

I wear size 13 shoes, and always had trouble finding over-the-calf socks that fit my feet. I finally found Nordstrom Men's Shop, which offers XL that fits 13-15. Not cheap at $14.50/pr, but they get the job done.
