Stirrup socks were developed out of necessity in the early days of baseball. During this time, dyes used in colored stockings would seep into the shoes of players and cause infections. To avoid this, a white sanitary stocking was worn under a colorful stirrup to maintain hygienic conditions and protect the player’s legs from injuries caused by rubbing against their shoes.

Baseball stirrup socks are often referred to as “baseball sanitary socks”. They were originally invented in 1905 when Nap Lajoie was injured and required the use of two layers of white, washable sanitary socks. They are worn over normal sport socks with the lower cut on one side of the sock placed in front.
Available in different styles, each baseball or softball sock includes custom stripe placement, a logo, and one text option. Additional logos and texts can be added for additional fees.

The Cincinnati Red Stockings were known for their brightly colored baseball socks, and they led the way for other teams to experiment with team colors. However, dyes back then weren’t always safe, and many players suffered from skin irritations.
Players typically wear knee high white sanitary socks under their uniform pants and then put the baseball stirrups over them. This allows the socks to be easily washed while still allowing the player to show off their team colors.
Some players also like to tuck the cuff of their pants into the top of the socks for a classic “knickerbocker” look. However, loose socks can fall down while playing and become a safety hazard. It’s important to check your stirrups regularly and replace them when they lose their elasticity.
Every baseball or softball team deserves to have their socks match the rest of their uniform. This makes them look professional and it truly shows what it means to be a team – to show up on the field together looking the same.
Baseball stirrup socks are worn over another pair of socks which is often called “baseball sanitary socks” – these are knee high and go on first before the stirrup socks are placed over them.
