6 Unusual Sock Subscription Boxes for Mens, Women and Kids



What do you get the person who has everything? If they’re sock-obsessed, the answer is probably a sock subscription box! The past few years have seen an explosion of sock subscription boxes, and there are now lots of options to choose from if you want to give this gift to the Sock King or Queen in your life, or if you want to treat yourself with some exciting new socks every month. Here are six of our favorite unusual sock subscription boxes.



An Awesome Geeky Sock Subscription

While most sock subscription boxes focus on function, An Awesome Geeky Sock Subscription does exactly what it says on its tin: sends you geeky socks. It takes a different approach than your typical sock box. Instead of sizing/style preference questions, it asks about your favorite fandoms. You also get to specify how often you’d like to receive packages (monthly or every other month). To some extent, that lack of customization might matter—just less so when we’re talking about socks. In terms of geekiness, however, An Awesome Geeky Sock Subscription is spot-on.



For Kids Only (Socks That Fit)

For kids (ages 2–12), ForKicks offers five sizes of socks in more than 50 different designs. Right now, a two-month subscription costs $30 per month. If you sign up before January 15th, you can get your first pair of kid-sized merino wool socks—which retail for $15 to $20 each—for just $5 with code MEOWHENRY (signing up also gets you a pair of adult merino wool socks). Every other month thereafter is just $22 per month. The company says they aim to send one new style every time they ship out a box.



Happy Toe Co. Healthy Happy Feet Club

Happy Toe Co. provides you with an assortment of toe socks, designed to keep your feet happy in any environment. The company offers one plan that includes six pairs of toe socks every three months—for $20/month. Or you can opt for a three-pack at $10/month or even just one pair of $5 socks with monthly subscription option starting at just $2.95 per month.

Crafted with Care

Quality is a big differentiator between sock subscription boxes. In fact, I’ve found that there are only three ways a sock subscription box can fail: lack of customer service and attention to detail (say what?), inferior quality (ouch), or poor variety. Luckily, Philosockphy’s 6-pair pack is really good at all three of these elements. I love a company that values its customers by going above and beyond. Plus — with price points ranging from $13 to $18 per month (depending on what you choose) — it’s hard not to fall in love with their products without breaking your bank account!



Urban Asana Yoga Naturals

While some subscription services offer a discount on retail price for signing up, Urban Asana doesn’t—all you pay is shipping (which is surprisingly affordable), which makes it an especially good option if you do yoga regularly. It offers a full suite of yoga supplies including mats, blocks, towels and sweaters as well as socks. The design-focused box comes with 12 pairs of high-quality socks in trendy colors that transition well from day to night. Bonus: Urban Asana donates to charity with every purchase. For every pair sold, it plants 10 trees in India’s Sahyadri range—the single largest forest reserve in Western India according to the company’s website .



Feel Good Fabrics – For Life’s Adventures

Curious to see what feels good? Find cool socks that aren’t cotton. Polyester is a synthetic fabric made of interlocked fibers. Unlike other materials like silk or wool, polyester doesn’t breathe so it retains moisture easily and can make your feet hot in warm weather. But, if you want to wear thick socks while hiking a volcano (and looking good doing it), polyester might be your best bet. Philosockphy makes it easy to get samples of unusual fabrics before you buy them on Amazon. Also try Bedrock & Co., which has super soft socks made out of bamboo fabric. Bamboo is naturally antibacterial and hypoallergenic – so your feet will feel fresh all day long.
