Question Number: 20427

Appearance 11/1/2008

RE: Adult

Melvin Hagerman of colorado springs, Colorado U.S.A. asks...

This question is a follow up to question 20405

RE: the referee that has problems finding socks (he's 6'5' and a teen): He could also try places online like Casual Male's or King Size's online sites--they have socks that go into size ranges of 12-17 or 13-17. Not sure if it is the TYPE of sock--i.e. needs athletic socks--that is the problem, but the COLOR is not a problem. It would alos help him find socks that don't squeeze your legs at all; the larger sizes 12-17 or 13-17 socks don't do that at all.
(I know--I am a size 13EEEE foot due to lower-leg swelling in both legs, so socks that don't squeeze the lower legs are not the easiest to find.)

Answer provided by Referee Keith Contarino

I doubt they would carry an approved referee sock
