Happy Socks in Fast Company Magazine

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.Happy Socks

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.

In 2011, Happy Socks was profiled in Fast Company Magazine, discussing how they have grown a great sock business and also developed a culture of “happiness” around their product.

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!

 

Pink Wave Dot Happy Socks from Say it with a Sock

My first Say it With a Sock sock subscription package came in the mail today, and I couldn’t have been more excited to open it. For starters, the packaging is bright, vibrant, and exciting… I practically raced from the mailbox into my apartment to “delicately” tear it open. There’s even an arrow at the top of the package that shows you where to tear it and “release the fun” (such a cute detail).

The first thing I pulled out of the package was a cute little card from Say it With a Sock, that included my tracking number, the number of months I’d receive the package for, as well as a personalized handwritten message. Then I reached back in and grabbed a beautifully bright pair of pink Happy Socks with black and white squiggles and dots on them! (The squiggles kind of look like bacon, can’t say I’m upset about that.)

The socks are awesome! I mean, who doesn’t love a great pair of Happy Socks?! This pair is the perfect mix of bright, fun, and stylish. I could easily see myself wearing these with pants, skirts, and even a black or white dress to add a pop of fun to my outfit. I’m extremely excited to wear these out and am very satisfied with my Say it With a Sock subscription!

Where can you find Happy Socks in a sock of the month subscription?

At this point, if you are on SockClubs.com, you likely are into socks.  So you have most likely heard of Happy Socks through friends, stores, advertisements, television shows, or via your feet smelling hobby.  Happy Socks is often considered one of the original “fun sock” brands, and today they are certainly one of the largest and most well known sock brands.

On the Happy Socks website, you can buy socks online for men, for women, and also shop additional undergarments such as underwear.  Or, you can browse by category such as athletic, dress, or “happy” category.  Happy Socks also can be found in select retail stores, where you can see in person the variety of designs and patterns in their sock collection.

However, there is one clear gap on the Happy Socks website – there is no sock subscription option!  But, you can actually find Happy Socks included in the subscription packages of other sock of the month clubs.  Here’s the list of the best sock of the month clubs that will carry Happy Socks, at least occasionally.

1. Say it with a Sock
This sock of the month club run by a couple out of LA carries a host of brand name socks, including Happy Socks, Richer Poorer, Sock it to Me, Socksmith, and more. Each month you receive a new surprise brand name.

2. Sockscribe.me
We’ve covered Sockscribe in the past as one of the more popular sock subscriptions because of its simplicity.  They carry top brands including Happy Socks, Zulu Zion, and Richer Poorer socks as part of their monthly deliveries.

3. Zoraab
Zoraab is a sock brand that has a sock subscription we have written about previously.  Zoraab is unique in that they make their own brand, but also carry other brands such as Happy Socks, K.Bell, Hot Sox, and more.
