Most men's socks are made to fit shoe sizes 7 and up. If you wear smaller than a men's size 7, you'll probably need to shop in the boy's department or in a short men's specialty shop.
For white athletic socks, try Fruit of the Loom boy's crew socks (they usually come in a 6-pack), or Gold Toe brand boy's athletic socks. Both of these brands are commonly available in department stores and discount retailers.
For dress and casual socks, Gold Toe brand boy's socks (www.goldtoe.com) are of good quality; they can be found in many department stores or ordered directly from Gold Toe's web site. Gap.com and oldnavy.com both carry kid's socks; the Gap's come in white, navy, and tan. Size large in both brands will fit shoe sizes 3 to 4, and size extra-large fits shoe sizes 5 to 6.
