Editors Notes

In 1895, roofer and knitter Franze Falke-Rohen founded his own knitting mill. This family run business would go on through the turmoils of World War One, and expand to a wool and yarn mill in Schmallenberg which would become the company’s headquarters.

In 1948 Falke expanded production from knitted socks to hosiery, making the first nylon hosiery in Germany, and pioneering the production of hosiery on a cotton kitting machine. They’ve since gone on to produce wide menswear and womenswear lines, as well as multiple Red Dot Design winning sportswear.

Falke’s selection of robust and attractive socks and hosiery provide chic and stylish office and casual wear.

Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best lightweight socks I love these pure cotton socks, I just wish you had them in more colours. 05 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Soft and elegant Worth every penny these socks are a joy to wear. They are light enough to wear inside Ugg boots and great for bunion sufferers! They keep their shape wash after wash as well. 22 March 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor quality I bought these socks online, and on the very first wear I had a hole in the toe on one of the socks! Not expected from a supposedly high quality item and brand such as Falke. Very disappointing. 21 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product False socks are very hard wearing, always keep their shape after every wash. 28 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Super soft and thin socks ideal with shoes as well as boots. Expensive but worth it, 29 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sox! Expensive but best socks ever! I wear nothing else 28 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super light and soft I have found these socks to be ideal to wear with lace ups and boots in winter or with loafers in summer. They are fine and soft yet very hard wearing and don't ride down or wrinkle. They are comfortably stretchy around the ankle and toes. Worth every penny. 22 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth the price I was loathe to spend so much on a pair of socks, but I'm glad I did. Really comfy and have washed well. Will be ordering more. 09 January 2014
