The History of Stirrup Socks
Born out of necessity stirrup socks were designed to give players a unique look while playing baseball. At the time color dyes were not safe for skin contact and could bleed into white sanitary socks. This caused players to wear two layers of stockings- white sanitary on top of colored stockings. This allowed the player to showcase their team color without risking injury.
Originally the stirrup sock had no toe or heel sections and only exposed a small section of the white sock underneath. Later as technology improved and the sock manufacturing process advanced the stirrup socks became longer and incorporated toe and heel sections. Today, a typical baseball stirrup sock is a two in one design that incorporates a standard baseball or football style knee high sock and a section of a traditional white sanitary sock.
While the majority of baseball players have gone full circle back to wearing long pants that carry the leg down to the shoe, there are still many who prefer to keep a bit of tradition alive by sporting a pair of long baseball socks with stirrups. You will find them in the Minor League circuit, high school and college baseball, and even in Major League Baseball from time to time.
