When guys and girls wear their dress clothes, socks are usually not that important as they tend to be one color and quite bland. I recently discovered a company called Sock Fancy that takes that idea, throws it out the window, and comes through with some amazing, fun, unique and innovative designs for you to show off at your next holiday party and into 2017. Here is why they are a must have for this season, in and out of Manhattan.
Here are some facts about Sock Fancy to get you a little more familiar. Sock Fancy is still a relatively new site, starting only 3 years ago in 2013. The reason for founders Stefan Lewinger & Futhum Tewolde starting this company was due to an immense frustration within the industry, in that they found a lot of difficulty in finding a pair of socks that were comfy, designed well and durable beyond anything.
Per Stefan, “Futhum always showed off his socks around the house, but lamented the fact that he often had to settle for poorly made socks from big box stores or pay an arm and a leg for a decent pair from the small selections at specialty shops (if you could find one). With my background in ecommerce and digital marketing we saw a big opportunity to team up and create something exciting.” From there, they started building the website, placed their first order, and now have grown into a 5,000 sq ft warenhouse & office in Cabbagetown, Georgia.
I’m always up for a jazzed up and fun sock, and that is exactly why Stefan & Futhum went into this business in the first place. “Socks are not only a great way to keep your wardrobe fresh, but the perfect instrument to express yourself. They provide an outlet to be playful, creative, and even a little funky with your style whether you’re in the boardroom or the bedroom. For many people, wearing crazy socks can even be subtle way to rebel against the uniformity and boredom of the workplace”, says Stefan.
Regarding subscription to Sock Fancy, it can be delivered to your door for as little as $11 a month. Equipped with random and awesome socks, the low cost turns your boring sock wardrobe into a full on extravaganza for your feet and can create some seriously awesome conversations with your friends, colleagues and family. If you are in a gift giving mood, you can even purchase 3, 6, 9, or 12 month subscriptions in advance. They never charge for shipping and you can even swap out any pair you’re not completely in love with.
Sock Fancy was nice enough to give me a slew of their line of amazing socks this week, and I was amazed by so much, including the color, designs and more. They really are elevating this fashion style to a whole new level, and hope you are along for the ride.
