As winter weather creeps in, so too does my desire to wear loungewear all day long. I’ve already stocked up on cozy essentials like sweaters and robes, so I’ve moved on to hunting down the best-ever fuzzy socks. You know the ones: those super thick, warm socks that make your feet feel like you’re walking on clouds rather than the cold floor of your apartment.
As a child, I wore the kinds of fuzzy socks that were either covered in holiday patterns or came in a bright array of neon hues. Now I’m an adult, my fuzzy sock criteria has changed. Yes, they have to be comfortable and thick, but they also need to be cute enough to wear around my houseguests. With that in mind, many of the fuzzy socks on this list are great not only for wearing but for gifting, too. If you’re a member of the kind of family that dresses alike during the holiday season (my cousins and I always wear matching pajama sets, for example), gift everyone in your brood a pair of socks this season and pose for a cute picture or two to show them off.
Other fuzzy socks on this list are perfect for a moment of self-care when it’s too cold to even go outside to grab your pickup order; alternatively, you can buy a pair that matches your new favorite robe or cashmere sweater. And if you’re looking for something fun, you can buy a pair that’s just as neon as the ones you used to wear.

Best Fleece-Lined Fuzzy Socks
Available in three neutral colors—wine red, this oatmeal shade, and a speckled black hue—these fuzzy socks from UGG, the brand behind the internet’s most talked-about fluffy boots, are guaranteed to keep your feet feeling cozy all season long. While reviewers give them top marks for comfort and warmth, they do note that these socks aren’t adorned with little grips at the bottom, which can make them prone to slipping and sliding as you move around throughout the day.
Best Classic Fuzzy Socks
These are the kind of fuzzy socks that you’ll actually want to show off this fall and winter. Falke’s Bed Socks are available in four pastel colors like lavender and ice blue and come in three different sizes, which promise to fit shoe sizes 35 through 42. The German accessories brand was founded in 1895, so you can trust them to keep your feet warm. Yes, they’re slightly an investment at $35, but you could definitely wear them in lieu of your regular tube socks if you’re looking for something warmer.
Best Set of Five Fuzzy Sucks
Remember when I mentioned gifting fuzzy socks fo every member of your family? This set from Amazon makes that a little easier. You get five pairs for less than $10 (and with fast shipping!), so they’re great if you forgot to get stocking stuffers or if you have a great last-minute photo idea in mind. There are nine color combinations available to shop, so you can choose from pastels, bright colors, or a set of deep, cool shades like navy blue and teal.
Best Splurge-Worthy Fuzzy Socks
Yes, I’m asking you to splurge on a pair of socks this season. But I can guarantee that this adorable pair from Lafayette148 is worth the money. First of all, they’re knit by hand in Italy from a blend of mohair, wool, and recycled cashmere, so you know they’re soft. The fair isle print is also so cute, and you can shop the colorway in both mittens (opens in new tab) and a beanie (opens in new tab). The ribbed trim at the top will also guarantee that these socks will stay in place.
Best Celebrity-Adored Fluffy Socks
The Kardashians have raved on social media about how comfortable pieces from Barefoot Dreams are, and I can personally vouch for these socks. They're made from the same CozyKnit fabric that many of the robes and blankets from the brand are made from, so you can treat your feet to the best of the best this season. You can shop them in eight, easy-to-style different shades.
Best Trendy Fuzzy Socks
It’s no secret that butterflies are trending, thanks to Gen-Z icons like Olivia Rodrigo. This pair from American Eagle actually hits two trends at once, considering that they also come in this cute brown-and-black combination. The ribbed top design also ensures they don’t slip down as you wear them throughout the day. Plus, the $10 price tag makes them all the more appealing. Consider these a cute enough pair to show off.
Best Printed Fuzzy Socks
It’s truly shaping up to be a bright, printed-sock winter! These cozy and warm heart-printed fuzzy socks from lingerie and legwear brand Calzedonia come in a bunch of different colors, including a ruby red and a fair-isle-sweater-inspired print. These socks are made from an ultra-soft cashmere fabric but only come in one size, so larger or smaller sizes might not be a perfect fit here.
Best Fuzzy Socks for Boots
If you’re someone who, like me, wears all black all year, this pair of black fuzzy socks from Loops & Wales should be on your winter must-buy list. For just $10 you get a pair of warm-as-anything socks that offer a slight pop of color on the trim (they come in gray, plus an orange-and-black combination). I would personally wear these with a pair of ankle boots or combat boots thanks to the fitted trim at the top, plus they won’t slip and slide around in your shoe.
Best Fuzzy Socks-Slippers Hybird
Are they fluffy socks? Are they slippers? The world may never know. What I do know for sure is that these Gripper Slippers from Bombas have saved my feet. As the name might suggest, they have grippy dots on the bottom to keep you from sliding around your apartment and have a new-and-improved fit that hugs your feet for added warmth. You can shop them now in four shades and four sizes, which range from XS through L, which roughly translates to sizes 5 through 14.
Best Soft Fuzzy Socks
When I asked my friends for their favorite fuzzy socks, several of them recommended this set of three tube socks from Cozy Earth. Available in four neutral colorways and in two sizes (XS/S and M/L), this set is great if you’re looking for an all-around wearable fuzzy sock to wear this season and beyond. Plus, they’re made from 25 percent viscose from bamboo! Five-star reviewers note that these are the softest socks on the market, so you may never want to take them off.
Best Fuzzy Socks for Small Feet
Be really honest with yourself: Who doesn't love a fun pair of socks in the winter? This made-in-France set of two socks from basics brand BASERANGE is made from a cotton-blend terry fabric, which means that they’re somehow both lightweight and warm at the same time. However, they only come in one size, which the brand claims will fit U.S. shoe sizes 4 through 9, so bigger feeted-buyers, these might not be the best choice for you on the market.
Best Funny Fuzzy Socks
Holiday-themed fuzzy socks are one of my favorite things to buy every single time the weather cools down at the end of the year, and this fun green-and-red pair of crew-style, thick knit socks from WHOOPI caught my eye the second I scrolled past it on Nordstrom’s website. Here’s the good news: They're actually available to shop in three different sizes, small through large, which the brand says roughly equates to women’s shoe sizes 4 through 12. And yes, they’re already in my cart.
Best Everyday Fuzzy Socks
This pair of socks also came highly recommended by friends, so, yes, they’re worth the $70 price tag. Available in three neutral colors (tan, white, and black), these long crew-style socks from accessories brand AGL are designed to be worn all the time. They come in one size and provide the perfect amount of cool-girl-approved bunching at the ankle as you wear them throughout the day. To keep them lasting as long as possible, the brand recommends that you hand-wash them. Yes, it takes more time than just chucking them in the wash, but it’ll be worth it!
