Shorter Ankle Socks

This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
I was bothered by the fact that the game only includes long socks, as I only ever wear ankle socks. The shortest pair of socks is called ankle socks, but they lie. :P

I also thought that my sims look stupid wearing long socks with sneakers and shorts, so I did a basic edit to have a shorter pair of socks. It is only for female sims, as the male sims have a somewhat shorter pair of socks anyway. This does not replace anything.

Here is the default color:



Enjoy!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Finally, my sim doesn't have to wear pants to work out just to keep from looking like a dork! Thanks so much!

These are great! You can never have too many options. One wonders why they didn't include something like this with the original game. Not that I have anything against the socks that shipped with the game - I rather like dorky looking sims, on occasion - but it seems insane to think that ALL female sims would want to wear tall socks.

Thank you so much for making and sharing these! You've done the community a world of good!!

Thank you for this. I don't think I even own a pair of socks as tall as the ones my sims have.

I downloaded the file, but WinRAR says the file is corrupt and does not allow me to open it.

I tried downloading it from here and it downloaded and extracted just fine. I haven't installed it because I already have it in my game, but the file seems to work. Sorry, I'm not sure how to get it working for you. Maybe you could try downloading it again and see if the first download just messed up somehow.

I think I love you!
I was insanely aggravated because the originals look ridiculous with the low top chucks for females. (on that note, isn't it just ridiculous that males get high tops and females don't D:< stupid EAxis.)

Thank you so much for these. You've just made my game that much more playable :D
