As far as actual socks, any pattern can be made to fit a bigger foot simply by increasing the length of the foot of the sock before starting knitting the toe portion. That is, as long as the sock pattern is large enough for around the ankle and the top of the foot. I'm sorry, I don't have any actual man's sock patterns off the top of my head but if you visit www.knittingpatterncentral.com there are loads and loads of patterns in many different categories, including socks and slippers.

Good luck.

I looked around, just in the free patterns section of this site and found these Bigfoot Socks. It says that it fits a man's 12-13.
