Sock Talk brings a voice to your footwear

On SockClubs.com, we cover the best of subscription sock sites and online sock shopping. A recent sock merchant we found is Sock Talk — a unique way to send a message using your feet!

Sock Talk

Sock Talk is a simple concept — a pair of socks for $6.99 that make a statement.  Each pair of Sock Talk socks comes with printed words on each sock.  This is a great idea for many different occasions such as weddings, gifts for friends and co-workers, or for the holidays.  They have funny sayings, romantic words, sports themed socks, and more.  And Sock Talk carries socks for both men and women.

What are some example Sock Talk sayings? They include “I love my Wife” or “Fantasy Football” for men, and “Baby Bump” or “Mom Life” for women.

Sock Talk doesn’t yet have a subscription sock of the month club, but you can very easily order many pairs of socks to keep your sock drawer inspired!

Ozone Socks delivers fresh fun socks for men and women

486x60_banner1

We’ve discussed Ozone Socks on our Sock Clubs blog in the past.  But recently, Ozone has launched an updated website with fresh sock designs that will enhance your footwear game.

Ozone Socks -- Fun Socks for Men and Women

What’s different about Ozone Socks compared to other online sock websites?  Ozone has superb quality — they partner with family owned mills in Columbia, France, and Japan — giving them a direct, diverse supply line of quality cottons, wools, and nylons for your feet!

Ozone has been around since 2000, so they have had almost two decades of design experience — leading to innovative patterns for both men and women.  Their novelty sock collection is worth checking out — designs such as “Boot Knife” and “Mosquito Squadron” effectively guarantee a unique style in the office or when out with friends.

And of course, Ozone Socks has a sock of the month club.  When signing up for their sock subscription, you choose whether its for men or women, and select a 6-month or 12-month plan. They send you a new pair each month, and shipping is entirely free.

For an online sock store, Ozone Socks is as reliable and cool as any.  You can pick from buying single pair designs of your choice, or subscribe to their monthly sock subscription.  Shipping is free, the designs are novel, and the service is top notch.

 

iZ Sock delivers comfort from Scandinavia

iZ Socks

When it comes to socks, Scandinavia isn’t the first place that comes to mind as the global headquarters for sock design.  However, iZ sock may change that opinion — its socks are designed in Scandinavia.

Promising “socks in balance” — combining reason, quality, comfort, and durability. iZ Socks also claims to be the “world’s most boring brand” with socks that are simple black colors and the product that nobody talks about, but everybody uses.

Started as a result of a bet in 2014, iZ socks is based in Denmark but also ships to the US and Canada. iZ socks has Bamboo Socks, Cotton Socks, and Woolen Socks.  Depending on how you purchase, a pair of socks from iZ socks starts at $5 and goes up from there.

iZ Socks is yet to launch a subscription sock of the month club, but they do offer a membership program that gives you a discount on your purchases (similar to a loyalty program).

Looking for a taste of Scandinavian feet?  Try out iZ socks!

 

Fun Sock Subscription at K. Bell!

K. Bell is a sock site dedicated to high quality socks for men and women with fun, theme-oriented sock designs and patterns.

300x250_00

Their site is organized based on Lifestyle or Collection of socks, and separated into men’s and women’s categories.  Under “Lifestyle”, you can find Food & Beer Socks, Animal Socks, Sports & Gaming Socks, Unique Patterns, Bold Personalities, and Dog & Cat socks. “Collections” include American Made socks, Holiday, Laurel Burch, Shag, Grumpy Cats, and Groomsmen socks. K. Bell also has a kids sock section featuring Monster and Adventure Socks!

If you like what K. Bell has to offer for style and fashion for your feet, you can get a sock subscription with their Sock Club.  Each month, K. Bell will send you 3 pairs of socks. You can choose if its for a man or a woman, and then select the theme.  For men, you can choose between “Fun Loving”, “Best Dressed at the Office”, and “Born to be Wild”.  For Women, you can select between the themes “Cat Woman”, “Classic Style”, and “Fashionably Fun”.

You can set your subscription to K. Bell to be monthly, 3-months, or 6-months long.  It doesn’t look like K. Bell provides a price discount for longer commitments, so we recommend signing up for the 1-month plan for $19.99 per month (shipping is free) and seeing if you like their subscription box!

 

Sock Fancy vs. Sock Panda — comparing two sock of the month clubs

Sock Fancy and Sock Panda are two of the more well known subscription sock websites.  In this post, we compare the two exciting businesses on a variety of metrics, including price, quality, customer reviews, and customization.  Our goal is to help you choose the sock of the month club that is right for you!

Sock Panda Sock Subscription vsSock Fancy subscription socks

1. Pricing
Sock Fancy has three pricing options, based on the number of pairs of socks you want each month.  For 1 pair of socks, its $11 per month.  For 2 pairs of socks, its $19/month.  And for $6 pairs of socks (quite extreme!) its $57 per month. You can pay monthly, or pay all up front and receive 1 month free if you pay for 12 months upfront.  Shipping is always free.

On the other hand, Sock Panda keeps it simple and sends you 1 new pair of socks each month for $12/month. You can save money by paying upfront for six months ($11/mo) or a year ($10/mo). Shipping is always free.

2. Quality
Sock Fancy sells its own brand of socks, which are designed in-house by their Atlanta design team. They are “high quality cotton blends” made using a 200-count needle machine. Sock Fancy socks are all “fun” socks — so the designs and color patterns are sure to upgrade your style game.

Sock Panda also delivers on the fun and whimsical theme with their 85% Peruvian cotton socks. Although Sock Panda doesn’t appear to have an in-house design team, they do promise to deliver a strong variety of patterns ranging from the more fun and colorful to the subtle.

3. Customization
When you sign up for Sock Fancy, you get the option of customizing the size — based on whether the socks are for him or her (or both).  Sock Panda offers a bit more flexibility, since you can get men’s socks, women’s socks, “Tween” Socks, or kids socks. Both sock of the month programs allow you to give as a gift.   Sock Panda does have a custom sock program, designed more for corporate customers who want their own logo or design of the socks.

4. Customer Reviews
On TrustPilot, Sock Fancy receives an average rating of 6.8 out of 10 from 123 reviews. Although not available on TrustPilot, Sock Panda receives a glowing review of their July socks on HelloSubscription.com.

We favor Sock Fancy’s reviews, since they have made the investment to setup TrustPilot which is a sign that they care about their customers and providing transparent customer feedback.

There you go — we hope this is helpful guidance when evaluating Sock Fancy vs. Sock Panda for a sock of the month subscription!

Socks for Father’s Day: Blue Blue Richer or Poorer

Today I opened my mailbox to see my favorite blue package of late (from Say it with a Sock), however, I carried it to my apartment with bittersweet emotions. On the one hand, I’ve loved every moment of receiving this subscription, but on the other, my 3 month subscription duration is over. But I digress….

Richer Poorer Sock Subscription Richer Poorer Sock Subscription Richer Poorer Sock Subscription

I opened up my blue package to find a corresponding pair of blue socks with a smattering of colorful geometric triangles. This pair of socks is by the brand Richer Poorer. In comparison to my last two pairs, these are not nearly as wild or cute, but they are most certainly still bright and fun. I like these as a

*Side note: when you sign up for socks on the Say it With a Sock website, you have the option to choose “graphic socks, ” “pattern socks,” or “both”. I selected both, which is why I think I’ve gotten the full range of what you would define as “fun socks.” However, if you know that you prefer shapes and patterns over foods and animals (or vice versa), then I would definitely suggest being more selective in choosing what types of socks you’d like to receive.  

Overall I’m so happy I received this subscription. (Oh and full disclosure, I just emailed them to let them know I want to continue receiving socks on their “monthly” plan).
