Mid calf socks

Does anyone know where I can buy socks that are between ankle and knee length? The ankle ones don't properly cover the gap to my trousers, but I find proper knee length too hot.

(The length of the slipper socks around would be right, just a shame they are so thick and a lot have pom-poms).

You could look at men's socks, they usually look quite long.

Mens, look in Next or similar. A size 3-7 would be fine, Im sure.

I always buy mens socks from M&S. Plenty of different designs from plain to snazzy grin

Tkmaxx Ladies boot socks would be perfect I just bought some and they are too long for me - I prefer ankle socks

My favourites are men’s socks from morrissons. I have the same length issues you mention and these are the best I’ve found ... I’m on my third pack of 5 I think 🤔

BAM bamboo roll top socks are quite long though not exactly discreet - I have some striped one from last year though they don’t seem to be in stock at the moment.

Boots men's bamboo socks, a better length than the ladies.
