custom stirrup socks Custom Baseball Stirrup Socks are a great way to add flair to your team’s uniform. You can choose from a variety of stirrup colors and designs and you can even get them striped for extra style! These socks are perfect for team uniforms, sports events, and other casual activities.
Originally designed to help players keep their colored stockings clean, stirrup socks are also a unique part of the traditional look of baseball uniforms. They are worn on top of long socks that are typically white in color, and feature a loop (also called a “stirrup”) that fits inside the arch of the foot.
They were invented by Lajoie in the early 1900s as a solution to a problem that many baseball players had: dyes used in stockings did not wash out, so they could become infected when exposed to water or dirt. The player could put a white sanitary stocking on first, then put the colored stocking over it, but the white sanitary sock was often too short for the leg and slipped down.
This made it difficult to change the sock without pulling on the colored one as well, so stirrup socks were developed. These socks are still in use today, although they are no longer a common part of the baseball uniform.
Stirrups have come a long way since their inception. Now they are available in a variety of cut lengths that allow players to expose more or less of the white under sock. Some stirrups are longer, exposing the full length of the sock, while others have shorter cut lengths that show just a portion of the sock.
These baseball stirrup socks are available in 4”, 7”, and 9” cut lengths, so you can choose the best fit for your team’s needs. The cut length is measured from the bottom of the sock until the top, and the lower cut should be worn in front.
Besides being a cool way to display your team’s colors, stirrups also protect the sock from sliding and diving in the field. This is especially important if you’re playing on a softball or baseball field where the sand tends to get on the socks and cause them to slide down during play.
You can purchase stirrup socks with a simple stripe design that displays the team name or logo on one side, or you can have a woven-on stripe that shows the team’s colors on both sides of the sock. You can even have your team’s name or logo embroidered on the stirrup socks, or have them printed on them.
Our custom baseball stirrup socks are made from high-quality materials that are durable and comfortable for the whole game. They are flat-knit, so they are the same thickness throughout the entire sock and they offer more compression in key areas for added support.
They’re a great way to get your team’s name or logo in front of everyone and are also an excellent choice for giveaways or budget purchases! You can also order multiple pairs in bulk for savings and rush delivery options.
