The important characteristics that comfort dress socks must possess are that the socks should wick away the moisture away from the feet to the exterior of the socks. Also, the comfort dress socks should help to cushion the arch of the feet from the ground, and prevent the skin of the feet to rub against the inside of the shoes. In addition, comfort dress socks should not sag from the feet when worn, and it should fit perfectly to the feet, giving a trim and a cool look to the wearer of such socks. Also, the comfort dress socks shouldn't be made of a thick material, which causes problem in the wearing of the shoes and distorts the trouser cuff.

Comfort dress socks are available in variety of sizes and colours. The size of a comfort dress socks is important, as socks worn with a formal business dress shouldn't expose the ankle, but should at least come halfway to the calf. Common materials from which comfort dress socks are made are cotton, wool, nylon, polyester, and a variety of other synthetics. Cotton socks are good absorbent of sweat, but there is an inherent disadvantage in cotton socks as they don't allow the moisture to wick towards the surface and also doesn't allow wetness to evaporate quickly. That makes cotton socks good for wearing for short periods of high sweat periods, like when exercising, but not suitable when to be worn for a full day.

Woollen socks, on the other hand, breathe easily and lets wetness evaporate quickly, and in addition, offers more warmth in colder conditions. However, the major disadvantage of woollen socks is that it is quite bulky and like cotton socks, lacks the property of wicking away the moisture quickly. Comfort dress socks made from synthetic materials are the best bet in this case as they encourage wicking. Socks made from acrylic, olefin and polyester fit the bill as they have good wicking properties.
