5 Sock Subscriptions You Must Try

5 Sock Subscriptions You Must Try

The subscription economy has taken off, and it’s not hard to see why – it’s convenient and often saves you money if you can keep yourself from buying the same things over and over again. If you’re interested in trying out some new sock subscriptions, read on! Here are five of the best sock subscriptions that will change your life.

Are you a sock of the month kinda guy?

Most guys love socks. I know, because I’m a guy and socks are awesome. Some guys, though, take it to another level with sock subscriptions! A sock subscription is basically a monthly sock shipment that arrives at your door each month, giving you an opportunity to try new styles of socks. If you love great socks, then we think you should get into sock subscriptions; here are 5 great ones we recommend.

Why subscription boxes are great

When it comes to subscription boxes, they’re easy to forget you need new socks. That might be because your socks are rarely a focal point of any outfit, but they definitely should be. Philosocphy once told us we’re all looking for our soul mate (in the non-romantic sense) in life. Well, maybe your soul mate is out there looking for you too and their name is Mr. Right or Mrs. Right or His and Hers or sock-of-the-month club. Life can’t go on without good socks: keep them coming with a monthly sock subscription box!

1) Philosocks

Socks and philosophy may not seem like a natural pairing, but with Philosocks your feet are sure to be delighted by some deep thought along with your latest pair of socks. Every month brings you a new pair, either from an academic institution or depicting some big thinker on their label. And for each subscription sold, $1 goes to support education charities. This is a sock subscription that truly benefits those who need it most and is perfect for any philosopher or lover of learning.

2) Bombas

Bombas socks are, by far, our favorites. They’re not a subscription service—you can buy them individually on their website—but they look like they could be. Bombas are made in America with a patented design and focus on giving back to American communities. For every pair you buy, they give a pair to someone in need (you can even choose which cause you want your socks to go towards). Bombas come in men’s and women’s styles and sell for $12-$17 per pair. Even better: because of their cuffs (Bombas come with extra cuffs that provide cushioning), every pair lasts much longer than your average sock!

3) Sock Panda

This may seem obvious, but it's not as easy as you think to find great socks. Sure, there are sites that offer sock of the month subscriptions, but finding a quality sock subscription is a challenge in itself. For example, one company offers cool socks but only sends out one pair each month (not ideal for guys who run through socks fast). Others claim to send unique pairs, like say ones with a particular design or theme--but what about all those other awesome pairs? That's where Sock Panda comes in. They send a variety of pairs each month: from basic ones to some you wouldn't expect.
