On June 10th 2022, Social Socks opened its virtual doors with bold goals and an aspiration to help support different charities whilst at the same time providing others with an opportunity to give back and understand further the Climate and Social issues we face today.
The Classic range launched with eight colours, ranging from Midnight Black, Forest Green, Poppy Red and Ocean Blue, to name a few. They add instant colour to your sock drawer with bold, striking colours. But what was also important was how they felt. So with every pair, we included cushioned soles, arch support and seamless toes to provide you with the best socks for your feet and the planet. Each pair of Classic socks was finished with an embroidered logo to give that touch of luxury.
The Classic socks were a great success on launch weekend, raising an incredible £32.29 for WWF-UK and planting 16 trees. Then fast forward to September 3rd, and four new colours were added to the Classic range. Autumnal-inspired colours, Sunset Orange, Racing Green, Autumnal Gold and Mulberry Wine. These colours were taken from the colours of the leaves as Autumn began, with the name Mulberry Wine being named by a follower on Instagram, where a competition was run to name the upcoming burgundy Classic sock.
Before we look ahead at 2023 and the plans in place, Thank you to all the individuals and businesses for their help, support and guidance. Social Socks wouldn't have been nearly as successful without them. So here's to continued success and relationships, new socks, charities and many more trees planted in 2023!
