First Edition Socks for December

These are the socks we’ll be making in December for our First Editions subscription service. Go here to sign up!

We celebrate this holiday season with an environmental nod to our fair fronded friends, a geometric botanical, our Poinsettia design in Gray, Blue, and Lilac. Rounding out the theme, we reprise our classic Strata design in its most popular colorway, Cobalt, at long last in cozy 18.5 micron wool.

Conservative colorway

Supima Cotton

Class and confidence come together in this smart, understated neutral.


All our cotton socks contain 70% Extra Long Staple Supima Cotton, 25% Nylon and 5% Spandex.

Our regular size will fit most people, from a US Women’s shoe size of 6 to a US Men’s 11. Our Large size overlaps that range, from US Men’s 10 to 14. If you’re taller, or want a slightly higher sock, the Large is also about an inch longer in the leg.

(For international feet, our regular is a UK 4 to 10, EU 37 to 44 or Asian 23 1/2 to 28 1/2. Large is UK 9 to 13, EU 43 to 48 or Asia 28+.)

Who can resist this combination of our latest expanded palette of coolness.


XOAB socks are made in America from US-sourced materials and knit in small batches, using custom-dyed yarn, on our own knitting machines.

We use US-grown, spun and custom-dyed Supima cotton and domestic 18.5 micron Merino wool and add American-made nylon yarn for durability and spandex to help our socks stay up and conform gently to your leg and foot.

Poinsettia in Lilac, cotton

This triumph of the trio of treeness, our voluptuous violets perpetuate purple with pride.


We’ve designed for comfort, with a perfectly smooth toe seam, a little extra spandex for a perfect fit and 200-needle quality for fine pattern detail and an ultra-smooth feel.

We guarantee our socks. If you have a problem with them, or are displeased for any reason, contact us at rickandneil@xoab.us, and we’ll do our best to make it right.

XOAB socks can be machine-washed. Turn the socks inside-out before washing in cold water, and tumble dry on medium heat.
