My dad is horribly difficult to buy for so imagine my joy when Mum passed on an idea:

Size six seamless socks....

Off I went to eagerly google this glorious discover they don't exist.....

Size 6-8, yep, but apparently if you've got size six feet they just fall down....

Can anyone help? Have I missed something obvious? Women's socks are acceptable as long as they fit into the impossible criteria!

I take it you read a review? Just pretend you didn't. They'll be enjoyed for the day at least & might not even fall down on him. Fingers & toes crossed!

The sock shop do a nice seamless bamboo sock that I get for my size 7 footed dad. He loved them and asked for more for his birthday, he's not said they're massive. Have a look at those and see what you think.

flat seams here??

Thanks all for the tips, I'll look into them.

The size thing is from the horse's mouth. Apparently his size six feet don't like 6-8 socks which are obviously big enough for size eights and therefore too big for him....!

(I'm sure I wear 5-7, or maybe the same 6-8 socks and am at the lower end and don't suffer the same issue....!)

It's the size more than seamless that I'm struggling to fulfil!

OK. That didn't work.

Go to and search for adult seamless socks.

It might be worth giving these guys a ring and asking about their sizings.
