If you’ve been struggling to find ankle socks with ample cushioning underfoot, you’re in luck. To help narrow down the wide range of options on the market, we took it upon ourselves to curate a brief list of our favorite styles for men. We pulled styles from well-respected brands like Hanes, Carhartt and more for you to choose from. Each low-cut style is made with lightweight, durable, fast-drying polyester and spandex for elasticity. They all feature push cushioning with reinforced toes and heels for added durability and comfort.
