    Default differentiate L/R socks?

    I know this question may sound kind of crazy but how do u differentiate btw the left and the right sock. it may not make a great difference while playing but still the more comfortable u feel the better.
    let's be honest,how many of u did not know this yourself??

    Easy. There is no difference.
    (Unless you use Japanese split-toe or five-toe socks...)

    I don't think it is possible to tell them apart unless they are labelled as my pair of Yonex sock.

    I wear the one labelled with "R" (2nd Photo) for my right foot and "L" (3rd photo) for my left foot.

    I actually can tell my left sock from the right. The crocodile pair of white socks I use for just about everything have a small crocodile logo on the right sock while the left one doesn't. Trust me guys, these pair of white socks are the best pair I've ever worn.

    i actually switch l/r socks on purpose sometimes to avoid big-toe sticking out of the socks.

    I bought Nike running socks that were thinner than normal cotton socks and they have a "R" on one and a "L" on the other.

    Makes it quite easy in that case.

    even with my crappy wilson ankle sock, i can tell difference between a L or a R sock. when you put it on, feels awkward if its on the wrong foot and such

    ...hello...i'm not too sure bout this either...but as long as the socks are not too worn out and you can still see where the stitching is, you can see that the stitiching around the toe area is different on the two socks. the sitching does not go as far on the outer side and may be thicker due to overlapping and being folded in whereas the stiching on the inside goes about a toe-length in which is probably for the inside of the foot...i guess by looking at that you might be able to tell the two socks apart...

    i thought on the brand with the crocodile, the logo was always on the left hand side of everything.

    my motto is: if you can't tell the difference, then you don't need to know the difference. I'm sure if you randomly wear them all the time, they'll be evenly worn/stretched so it doesn't make a difference which way it goes.
