The Air Jordan line, sold by the subsidiary Jordan brand of Nike, is known for its detailed-oriented extravagance. You may not consider any sock extravagant, but think again. The Nike Air Jordan socks often include a reinforced heel and toe and ribbed arches giving your feet plenty of cushion and support. Here's where you can buy a variety of Nike Air Jordan socks.
The Nike Store, the Nike Outlet, or Nike.com
This is certainly the most obvious choice, but that doesn't mean it is necessarily the best. Here, you will find the current collection of Jordan brand socks - all are seemingly versions of the classic Nike Air Jordan socks. The range of different styles includes crew socks stretching to the middle of the calf, low quarter socks just above the ankle, knee-highs, booties resting below the ankle, and Air Jordan ankle socks. All of these socks listed contain the classic reinforced heel and toe and varying arch support. On the Nike.com site, the average price of a Nike Air Jordan sock is $9.00.
Consignment Store such as Ross, Marshall's, or Consignment Sports
Choose a shop that usually gets overstocked items because you'll be doubtful to find used socks for sale in any licensed store. When a department store, or even factory outlets and name brand stores have too much product, they clear their shelves for the incoming season by selling goods at a discounted price to stores like Ross and Marshall's. This allows them to sell name brand goods at wholesale prices. For instance, you may find a pair of Classic Air Jordan socks at wholesale price at Marshalls for under $4.00. That's a deal for the comfortable retro style.
The online store that sells nearly everything. Here, of course, you'll be able to find the sock you're looking for; whether it's the rarer Elephant Print, or a toddler's sized quarter sock. The problem: although you're looking at good retail prices, add on the shipping and in some cases, shipping and handling will tax on 60-150% of your original price. Your best bet in this situation is to take advantage of the free shipping option Amazon offers.
Eastbay.com or Eastbay Magazine
If you're a sports equipment fanatic, or simply like a good arch in your running shoe, you know of Eastbay. If you choose to order $75.00 worth of Air Jordan socks, you even get free shipping (this option would best be exploited by a sports team, who, by the way, can receive a significant discount as a team with Eastbay). Most Jordan Quarter socks run around $5.00 and crews run at $8.00. If you're using the Eastbay site to shop, you can narrow your search results to display exactly what you want, eliminating the tedious searches in stores and, in Amazon's case, online. Sorting options include product styles, colors, and sports (for Jordan’s that means Basketball, Sport Inspired, and Street Fashion.
Overall, it is going to take some searching to find the Air Jordan Socks you want without breaking your bank, but as is well known, it's worth it.
