about me

Hey there, I’m “roam”! I’m excited by the opportunity to become your new daily companion :)

Here’s why you should take me home with you:

  • I'm designed for ultimate comfort: luxurious organic combed cotton (GOTS certified) stitched with a high-gauge needle count, which makes me supremely soft and long lasting.
  • I won't slip down! My blister tab at the back helps me to stay up. It's one of my most attractive features :)
  • My compression arch further enhances your support and fit. Add in my seamless toe and terry cushioned heel and sole, and you'll never want to take me off.
  • And as with all my other hipSwan friends, you'll be supporting the planting of one tree for every order.
Regarding sizing, I come in a single size (23-25cm) which roughly equates to a UK shoe size between 4-7 (women) or 5-9 (men). But everyone has different feet and if you’ve any doubts about whether I'll fit you can return me within 60 days and just pay the return postage.

Composition: 75% GOTS-certified organic combed cotton, 5% nylon, 20% lycra spandex

Care instructions:

Be gentle. Either hand wash or machine wash in cold water on the gentle cycle. If using a machine, it's best to place them in a laundry bag to protect them further just like other delicates. Use a mild detergent and never use bleach. Refrain from using fabric softener.

Turn your socks inside out. This way, the extra cushioning at the soles and heels will get a more thorough wash.

Do not use a dryer. The heat and circulation of a dryer will decrease the longevity of your socks. Best to air dry them on a drying rack.

Do not iron. There's no need to iron socks, and it's especially important to refrain from ironing those styles with silicone grippers (flow and chill).

hipSwan socks come in a single size, 23-25cm. Their inherent elasticity allows them to fit a wide range of feet and are not gender specific.

For additional guidance, the following chart presents the approximate shoe sizes that our socks are likely to fit:

What if the socks don’t fit me? No problem, you have 60 days to return them. Just pay the return postage and we'll refund you, no questions asked. The socks must be in new, unworn condition with the outer wrappers included. Full details of our return policy are here.

Super comfy!

Love these new socks! I find it difficult to find socks that don't bunch around your feet as you walk. These don't! Wonderful!

Roam - so comfortable

I have worn my roam socks with a number of different shoes now and found them to be very comfortable, soft and stayed in place. After washing they have kept their shape well and have shown no signs of bobbling.

Oh, how I love these...

These Roam socks were thicker than I'd imagined, making them oh so comfy, but I worried they'd make my shoes too tight. I needn't have worried, as it turned out, they just cushioned my feet as I walked. I generally walk about seven or eight miles a day. I've worn these socks three days this week and they have kept my feet happy. Will definitely be ordering more...

Roam - best everyday socks ever

Lovely soft but hard-wearing fabric which washes & dries fabulously. Never underestimate the joy of finding trainer socks that stay put & don't end up bunched underfoot inside the shoe. Will defo be purchasing more.

Such soft and comfortable cosy fabric but don't make your feet hot . Never slide down . I love them, I had black and white and will be ordering more very soon ! Thank you.

Lovely socks but...

The quality is excellent but I did put a note on my order asking for a mix of colours. I don't see why this can't be done as they're all separate anyway. When my order came they were x5 pairs all the same colour. I would have liked 2 natural, 2 grey and one black.

Hi Bethan, we're glad that you're enjoying your socks and thanks for the photo! It looks great :) To answer your question about mixing colours, we don't provide the flexibility on our website to select individual colours in a multi-pack because we feel it introduces too much complexity (you'd be selecting 1 of 4 colours for each of 5 pairs). If you would like to order a mix of colours from us in future, please email our customer service before placing your order and we'll set up a manual order for you with your desired colours and the 5-pack discount. You are correct about there not being any issue with mixing colours from the fulfillment point of view. Our socks are stored in our warehouse as individual pairs. However, we use an automated fulfillment system, so when you order 5x of natural undyed, that's what you'll receive. Your order goes straight from our website to our fulfillment centre. If one of our staff is online and sees your order note there is a small window (5 minutes) where we could intervene and cancel your original order before it's fulfilled. Unfortunately, this wasn't the case with your order.
