Nothing is better than being an entrepreneur and starting your own successful business. The rewards are immense — you get financial gains, the freedom of being your own boss, and the pride of building something that makes an impact on the world.
eCommerce has opened up a whole new wave of opportunities for entrepreneurs, and one businesss that has emerged as successful is Sweden-based Happy Socks. We’ve written about them several times here on Sock Clubs, since Happy Socks are delivered in several of the sock of the month clubs we discuss, including Say it with a Sock.
One of our favorite quotes from the article showcases how they focus on the “fun” theme for their sock business:
From the outset, the philosophy was about being fun. “People smile when they see our products and hear our name. Feet are funny,” Söderlindh adds. “With Happy Socks you get a smile, great design, and good quality at a democratic price.”
It’s great to see a new company disrupt a traditionally boring industry of socks! Try out Say it with a Sock to get Happy Socks delivered to your door!
Every thanksgiving, millions flock to retail stores to catch Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. This year, we’re seeing more and more online retailers offer month long promotions to help consumers avoid the holiday rush and skip the lines!
Our favorite holiday deal for subscription sock clubs is at Say it with a Sock. We’ve written about their sock of the month club many times before. The reasons we like Say it with a Sock are simple: many styles, different brands, low pricing, customization, and strong customer service.
We’ve written about Joy of Socks before as a great online sock site for buying fun, crazy, and cool socks. As the holidays come around, we thought an annual reminder about the available socks on Joy of Socks would be important!
What holidays should you wear some of the wacky and fun Joy of Sock patterned socks for?
October is Halloween Sock month. Joy of Socks has several spooky designs to keep your feet scary this Halloween — including “Witch on a Broom” socks for Women, and “Halloween Batnado” socks for Men.
November is Thanksgiving Sock month. On the Joy of Socks website, you can find some trendy and patriot Thanksgiving socks including “Pilgrim Bear Socks” for women and “Turkey Party Fowl Socks” for men.
And December is Christmas Sock month. Men’s designs include “Gingerbread Break a Leg” socks and for women there are “Christmas in July” Socks.
If you plan on having a boring holiday season, we definitely don’t recommend you buy socks from Joy of Socks. But if you are looking for some fun and cool footwear, there is no better site than Joy of Socks!
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!
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.
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.
K. Bell is a sock site dedicated to high quality socks for men and women with fun, theme-oriented sock designs and patterns.
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!
Woven Pear is a new entrant to the online sock business — and we love what they have to offer. Focused exclusively on fun socks for women, Woven Pear is your source for high quality women’s socks. Each pair of socks is made from high quality woven cotton, and “dyed and dipped by hand” to ensure the best colors come through while you are wearing their clothes.
We obviously would not be talking about Woven Pear if they didn’t offer a Socksubscription! That’s right — Woven Pear has a sock of the month club for women who want to keep their feet stylish. Every month, sock club members receive three new “pears” of socks that are exclusive to subscription members. Pricing starts at $24.99 per month, and you can save money by committing to sign up for a full 6 or 12 month sock subscription. Additionally, Woven Pear makes it easy to give the gift of a sock subscription rather than sign up yourself.
Want to know what others think of Woven Pear? Their site has over 500 reviews from actual customers, so you can verify the quality, customer service, and value that you are getting at Woven Pear.
Occasionally, we love to highlight interesting socks that we find across the internet. Sock of the month clubs are great, but some sites just make it simple and fun to buy socks online.
Enter LookHUMAN — an all things awesome site for apparel. Their online site features t-shirts, hoodies, pullovers, one-pieces (for babies), and more. However, the area of the site that we love the most is their sock selection (and of course, we are biased!)
What does LookHUMAN offer for buying socks online? Pretty much every fun and cool pair of socks you can think of. They have funny socks, cute socks, nerdy socks, political socks, holiday socks, and more — the list goes on and on.
Some of our favorite pairs of socks that they offer: Ruth Bader Ginsburg socks (honoring the supreme court judge), Guacamole pattern socks (honoring the supreme avocado), and It’s Wine Time socks (honoring the supreme beverage).
We’ve written several reviews of Sock Fancy, which is one of our favorite sock subscription services. Recently, Sock Fancy also launched a corporate gifting program — quite a novel idea! A corporate gift subscription is a great way to send out office holiday gifts, impress clients with a surprise sock of the month club gift, and say thanks to team members or others who have helped you in the office environment.
To buy a corporate sock subscription gift, you commit to buying a certain number of sock subscription plans based on the number of gift recipients. Based on the commitment, you receive a discount on the price. The discounts for Sock Fancy’s corporate sock subscriptions are 15% for a “Group” order (10-25 subscriptions), 25% off a “Team” order (26-50 subscriptions), and 30% off for an “Agency” order (51+ subscriptions). Sock Fancy highlights their flexibility in bulk corporate plans and encourages you to contact them for anything additional.
Who else could benefit from Sock Fancy’s corporate gifts? Sports teams, religious groups, wedding parties, and more — any environment where stylish socks are important, and the fun of receiving a new pair of socks each month will keep the group delighted.
We love Sock Fancy’s free worldwide shipping on their sock of the month club — sign up today for their basic sock subscription service and see if you get ideas for a corporate gift!
Today my second shipment came from Say it With a Sock—yay! Having received this package last month, I was so excited to see that beautiful blue package stuffed in my mailbox. I looked for the little arrow on the packing with “release the fun” next to it, and ripped it open.
Since this was my second month receiving the socks, there was no note card this time (just thought I should note that). There was however, a super cute pair of yellow socks inside by a brand called Feat (how appropriate). The socks are really unique, super soft, and have really cute fruits on them (kiwis, pineapples, watermelons, and grapefruits). Since these are definitely fun socks, I could see myself wearing them in the summer with a dress, or in the winter under boots (especially when the rest of my outfit is fall or winter colors).
I had never heard of Feat socks before, so I looked and saw that they are made in Cape Town, South Africa. I also looked at Say it With a Sock’s website and learned that part of their businesses is sourcing cool and beautiful socks from brands around the world! I love that I get to learn about new sock brands, without having to search for them myself. I am so excited to have a pair of socks that I already know everyone is going to ask me about! All in all, I’m super satisfied.
