Foot worshipping is on the rise, as many Instagram personalities are often stating they have been asked for “feet pics”. I’m sure you will be familiar with the idea of a foot fetish, but did you know there is a market for buying used socks online?
With the growing popularity of sustainability and the decline of fast fashion, customers are looking at ways to reuse or resell their used items. There is a growing demand for unique items, and this includes a market for used socks, including used men’s socks.

No two buyers are the same and each may require something different. On our platform we utilize a handy search and filter function, where buyers can be specific regarding what they are looking for. Some of the filters they can search by are:
They can also filter the search based on the person who is selling them, including filters such as:
Be as specific as possible when describing your socks and make sure to include any other appealing details that buyers could be looking for. If they are soft or fuzzy, stained or smell like fish (yes, most buyers will want to give them a sniff), make sure to say so as these features could be exactly what a buyer is interested in.
There is a huge array of fetishes out there and the way you describe yourself may just be part of an interested buyers one, think big and beautiful, female giant (search macrophilia and you will understand what I mean!) and unusually large breasts, anything that sets you apart from another buyer can work in your favour. Include anything that may be considered niche on your profile.
Frilly, ripped, ped socks, long socks, knee high socks, the range is huge. If you have socks (which I am pretty sure you will do, unless you live in flip flops), you will likely be able to sell them.
However, here at All Things Worn it’s not only smelly socks that fulfil the desires of a foot fetish fanatic. There’s a variety of other interesting items that sellers have been listing, and there is a market of buyers out there for them. People who like feet are also interested in buying parts of the foot, don’t worry you don’t have to chop off a toe, I’m talking about toenails, foot dust (skin flakes) and hair. Have a look through some of our listings and you may just be inspired to start selling more than just your old socks!

You’ve sold some socks, you’ve got a few repeat customers and some excellent reviews, but what is the next step and how do you take your business to the next level to establish a sock selling empire? Below are some handy tips to push you in the right direction:
It’s free! Well, it is with All Things Worn, we offer sellers the opportunity to sign up & try our website. It's free but to sell it will cost $15.99. This means you canhave a look at what other sellers have on offer before you commit to signing up.
This goes alongside customer service, if you were to receive an item in the post that was in a ripped box or bag, you wouldn’t be likely to purchase from the seller again, would you?
Once you’ve made a sale, it’s important to package and ship your used socks properly:
As we are all aware, at the moment we are living in a cost-of-living crisis and most people are welcoming other avenues to make an extra income, well selling used socks online is certainly gaining popularity and isn’t something to be sniffed at.
As for how much of an income you can make from a sock selling business, it is hard to determine. It all depends on how much effort you put into it, what you sell and your online presence.
As for socks, their value can go up the more you’ve worn them and what you have used them for. As an example, the price that you sell them for can increase if you have been wearing them all day, every day for work as with some buyers it is often the smellier the better. Prices online range from a few pounds to more than £150 a pair, and obviously this can change depending on if you are a new seller or a pro with an established brand and many excellent reviews.
On All Things Worn, there are many sellers who are earning a decent wage from their sock selling side hustle, and some who have even earned enough to quit their day job and turn sock-selling into a career.
It’s up to you how much you list your socks for, remember to do your research and be realistic. Start with lower prices to begin with and be open to offers. It also helps if you are willing to do requests. You may not be able to become a millionaire overnight, but you can turn selling used socks into a successful side hustle.
Although we have created a unique platform that is specially catered towards selling worn items (in our opinion, the best one out there), there are other places where you could try selling/advertising your listings.
eBay - The most popular online marketplace that allows you to sell used socks, including used men’s socks. You can create your own listings and reach a wide audience. However, proceed with caution, eBay can be strict when it comes to selling certain items and I would recommend checking the terms and conditions before you start listing.
Social media - Platforms like Instagram and Twitter allow you to create a profile dedicated to selling socks, where you can share pictures and connect with potential buyers.
Facebook - Whilst you may find some groups advertising the sale of used items, many sellers modelling their underwear are at risk of violating Facebook’s advertising guidelines. (Facebook forbids “nudity or implied nudity” as well as excessive amounts of skin on show.) For those who also like to remain anonymous, you may find it difficult to remain private, unless of course you set up a fake account.
We suggest signing up to websites specifically designed for the sale of used panties so you can be part of a community of like-minded people, this is why we think All Things Worn is the best!
We are sure that All Things Worn has created an exceptional platform where you will sell your socks with ease, from listing to posting, the process is simple, and we are there with you every step of the way.
