Oktoberfest & Trachten Socks

That's why you will find a wide selection of nice Loferl for men and sexy Dirndl socks for ladies in our online shop.
Trachten Socks or Loferl - What are the differences?
In Trachten fashion, socks are not just socks and Loferl are not just Loferl. The foot- and calf-warmers differ in their materials, shapes and patterns and offer all Dirndl girls and Lederhosen boys depending on personal taste - whether traditional, bold or trendy - a great addition to the authentic Oktoberfest outfit.
However, one important difference between the socks and the Loferl can be clearly stated: The Oktoberfest socks warm the foot and calf, while Loferl cover and emphasize the calf. Read more about the product features in the following section to find just the right accessory for your outfit.
Oktoberfest stockings - the originals
Trachten socks are the traditional footwear in Trachten fashion. Note the difference between socks and stockings:
- Socks are usually made of thinner material and reach at most one to two hand widths over the ankle.
- With our lace socks in natural colors, you can add a refined and playful accent to your shoes.
- Traditional stockings are usually made of slightly thicker wool than socks and reach a maximum of up to the knee.
- With our traditional gray socks with a button you'll keep your feet warm and comfortable. With knee-high stockings in bright colors, you'll also set colorful highlights that will prove your fashion awareness.
Your choice depends on the outside temperatures, on the length of the Lederhose or the Dirndl and of course on your personal taste.
The Oktoberfest stockings and socks should be color coordinated to the entire Trachten outfit so that the individual costume elements do not clash. We offer you the products in numerous colors and patterns. For example, a blue-and-white checked Trachten shirt would be a perfect match for blue Oktoberfest socks.
But if you prefer it a little more special, you can also wear striped or checkered socks with your Lederhosen. For the ladies, the knee-high stockings pink with ruffles and a bow turn out to be a guarantee for a great look.
Loferl - the calf shaper
Loferl are the absolute eye-catcher in the Trachten world. They are not socks or stockings, as is often wrongly assumed. Instead, Loferl cover only the calves and leave out the ankle and foot. They emphasize the muscular part of the lower leg of men.
Where the Loferl has its origin is controversial. But it is clear that the calf dress is one of the most traditional Trachten accessories ever. In the 19th century, Loferl were still a bit longer than today. At this time they had a width of up to 10 cm.
But how is the man's special calf dress actually worn? Loferl will in no case be carded or rolled. It must always sit in a smooth shape on the calf, since they are very narrow anyway. It is important that Loferl sit directly under the knee to emphasize the strongest part of the calf. A faux pas that the wearer should avoid is the asymmetric seat of the Loferl. From time to time, take a look at your calves to check the fit. When buying Loferl, you should therefore make sure that the calf dress sits tight enough so that it does not slip down when moving.
