When I was a kid I hated getting socks for Christmas. Every year my mother would get me those white, bulky tube socks that went almost up to my knees. They didn’t go very well with my private school jumper. Not cool. Once I started shopping for myself I did not buy white or bulky socks ever again. I like colorful socks with designs or funny sayings. Doesn’t matter if anyone can see your socks or not. But just in case the hem of my pants ride up when I sit or bend down anyone who is looking will get a flash of my cool socks.
Cool socks are hard to find. I usually buy mine from boutique shops or I may find some online from time to time. When I found Sock Panda I felt like I hit the jackpot! They have crazy, fun socks for men, women, tweens and kids. You can subscribe for yourself or gift a subscription to a friend. Sock Panda even offers discounts when you buy multiple subscriptions.
Sock Panda sent me some socks to try. Just like with their subscription boxes you don’t know the exact socks you are going to get. You can pick from 2 styles or get a mixture of both. You can choose from Patterns or Prints and what I like to call their Funky socks which include pictures and sayings. I chose their Funky socks and I was not disappointed. I don’t know how they do it but they picked out the perfect socks for me.
Before I start ranting and raving about how awesome my socks are let me tell you about how awesome Sock Panda is. For every subscription purchased, Sock Panda donates socks to those in need. As of September 2017 they have donated nearly 100,000 socks to homeless shelters, low-income senior centers, hospitals and under-privileged classrooms throughout the country. (Quick break here while we all stand up and applaud Sock Panda for their efforts.)
Cool socks for me = cool socks for someone in need. Insert happy face here. Now back to my socks.
Sock Panda’s socks are designed in Venice, California and made in Peru. The socks themselves are made of 85% Peruvian Cotton, 10% Nylon and 5% Spandex. They are super-soft and stretchy. I think they are very comfortable to wear. I wear a size 7-1/2 shoe and the fit is perfect. The top of the socks come to about mid-calf for me but I am short. If you are taller than 5’2″ they will sit lower than that.
My daughter saw the ice cream socks and thank goodness her feet are small yet so I don’t have to share.
Yarn balls…me thinks Sock Panda did some research or they just got very, very lucky. Look at my website header.
Veggies!!! Nom nom nom.
I love the 3 pairs of socks that I received. Thank you Sock Panda!
