Why people love sock subscription boxes

Sock subscription boxes are great for people who love getting packages in the mail. They’re also great for people who hate buying socks, because sometimes when you really need new socks, there’s not enough time to go out shopping. If you end up going sockless every day, no show socks are a fun solution—they keep your feet warm without making them look like naked toes. Not sure which type is right for you? Read on to find out what goes into a sock subscription box and how to pick one that’s perfect for your needs!



How to avoid buying socks you already have

There are so many different socks to choose from, but it can be hard to find ones that match what you already have. If you’re looking for a sock subscription, then follow these tips to avoid buying socks you already have. Start by making a list of your favorite sock brands and styles so that you can be sure to include them in your subscriptions. Also, try making a note about when you bought each pair. As an example, if you buy three pair a year then include 3 years old on your note. Having unique notes like these will help you keep track of what kinds of socks you’ve purchased throughout time.



Things that make no show socks different from regular socks

They are generally thinner than other socks, so they're perfect for wearing with minimalist footwear. They come in a variety of colors and patterns (hello, summer wardrobe possibilities!). They are also referred to as athletic or no show socks. Here are some do's and don'ts to consider before buying one. Think about your shoes: Not all no show socks will work with every pair of shoes you own. Most often, they go under sneakers—which is fine, but if you want them to cover your ankles with dressier flats or heels, it may not work.



What goes well with no show socks?

As with most fashion choices, it really comes down to personal preference. If you're unsure of where to start, always remember that there is a time and place for all socks. You wouldn't wear shoes without them (unless you're barefoot or wearing sandals), so don't let lack of sock definition be an excuse to wear flip-flops everywhere either. Start by learning what kind works best for your feet and then feel free to go crazy with color as well! As long as they fit comfortably into your lifestyle, nothing should hold you back from having fun while keeping your feet covered.



What do you need to start your own sock club?

Although you can purchase specialty sock patterns and products, including 4-ply sock yarn, in pretty much any chain craft store, many sock knitters prefer to work with wool sourced from local shepherds. It's a nice way to support your community while also saving money. Another bonus? Shearing your own wool is fun - and it feels great on a cool day! But no matter where you source your materials, there are some steps you should take before diving in. Take inventory of what yarn or thread you already have; that'll give you an idea of how much more you need to buy or collect.
