Sock it to Me! 9 Fun Sock Subscriptions for Men
The first month of the year is usually the time when most of us make promises to change our lives in some way, whether that’s to get fit or eat healthier. Your feet are a part of your body that you might not think about until it’s too late, and by then, the damage has been done. Keeping your feet healthy and strong should be at the top of any man’s list of resolutions in order to prevent foot problems later on in life, but socks are often an afterthought when trying to keep up with a busy lifestyle.
1) Fit Threads
Fit Threads is a fun sock subscription box that hand-picks and sends you 2 new, premium pairs of socks every month. With styles for both men and women, you’ll discover different brands and fits in your first shipment. From there, you’ll be able to select your preferences: lifestyle (casual, formal), fit (low-cut/no show, mid-calf), sock type (crew/no show) and favorite colors/styles. After receiving your first pair of fun socks from Fit Threads, cancel anytime; otherwise they’ll ship out each month thereafter based on your preferences.
Designed specifically for men, Harry’s products—from razor blades to shaving cream—are high-quality and luxurious. Harry’s subscription box (just $9 per month) comes with four different types of razors (depending on your needs), all of which are individually wrapped and labeled, meaning they’re great if you travel a lot. For those looking for something a little more niche or geeky, there’s even a Star Wars-themed blade option. All in all, Harry’s is one of our favorite sock subscription boxes. Their products are excellent and their sense of humor shines through in every product they create.
Mantry is a monthly box for men that delivers 4-6 products every month. Each Mantry comes with a different theme and focuses on gourmet food, handcrafted goods, grooming supplies, and travel accessories. If you’re in need of something new in your sock drawer, Mantry is a great solution. Each package also comes with an information card that lists everything inside along with why each item was selected by its curator. It’s like an edible care package for guys!
4) L.L. Bean
L.L. Bean is a great place to get socks that are comfortable and stylish. The brand's Fleece Lined Duck Hunting Socks, for example, feature their signature duck hunting print (in subtle tones of green and brown) and a cushioned sole that ensures comfort when you're trekking through wet terrain. But these crew socks are versatile; they'll keep your feet warm under formal trousers, too. And with sizes ranging from small all the way up to XX-large, they can stretch over even gargantuan feet without issue—they're made in America using American materials, too. For $13 a pair on Amazon , they're a great stocking stuffer if you're on a budget or want something reliable but inexpensive as part of an office gift exchange.
5) Soul Origin
Soul Origin is a men’s sock subscription that sends out three pairs of fun socks every month. The company makes its socks in Italy and offers over 25 designs per month, making Soul Origin a solid choice if you want novelty socks delivered right to your door. The company has three levels: The Kicks, which includes three pairs of novelty kicks; It Began with a Sock, which includes two pairs of fun socks and one regular pair; and Killer Kicks & Socks, which is three fun socks plus two killer pair of regular adult-sized non-novelty dress socks. Prices range from $11-$15/month depending on level and length of subscription.
6) Grind Out Gear
Whether you're a thrill seeker or just trying to make sure you have enough warm, dry socks, a sock subscription box is a great way to ensure that your feet stay healthy and stylish.

7) Loot Crate
The Original Geek/Gamer Monthly Box: With three options available, you can choose a subscription that suits your specific geeky/gamer needs. Loot Crate offers T-shirts, Funko POPs, vinyl figures, comics, accessories and more in each crate. Socks are included with every box—and they come in some pretty awesome designs. You’ll receive $10-$15 worth of goods with each month’s delivery.
Goodfoot is a men’s sock subscription service that focuses on vibrant patterns and everyday functional socks. Each month, Goodfoot will send you three pairs of socks in a new theme, with each pair having a different pattern. Some themes include Modern Crew, Bowties & Monocles, and Basketball & Beer. You can expect to pay $19.99 per month for your subscription. Shipping is included in that price so you don't have to worry about extra charges when your package arrives at your door each month.
Bombfell is one of my favorite sock subscription boxes. For $25, you'll get a pair of socks delivered each month. Bombfell has no commitment, so you can cancel at any time without hassle. And if you hate a pair? Return them. Your subscription will be automatically renewed every three months unless you cancel, so no surprises when your credit card bill arrives at checkout time.
