The 6 Best Sock Subscriptions
How many pairs of socks do you own? Chances are, if you’re like most people, the answer to that question is more than I care to admit. Why do we have so many socks? It’s not because we wear all of them each day—most of us don’t have time for that sort of shoe rotation! Instead, socks end up accumulating in our dresser drawers and deep in the back of our sock drawers as we get new ones at holidays and birthdays from loved ones.
#1 - Bombas
Bombas is a monthly sock subscription that sends you three pairs of high-quality socks. For every pair you keep, Bombas will donate a pair to a homeless shelter in your name (every month). Bombas socks have been featured in Men’s Health and are designed for various activities - from walking to sports. The company was created after one of its founders developed plantar fasciitis from wearing cheap shoes and never wanting to put on another ugly sock again.
#2 - Happy Socks
Your best bet when it comes to sock subscription services is arguably Happy Socks. This company will not only send you a pair of their well-known branded socks every month but they'll also include one accessory as well. When you subscribe, you get to choose between three different styles: basic, step and big & tall. You can also sign up for different lengths of subscription too, ranging from 3 months to 1 year (with longer periods giving you better rates). These guys have an awesome selection to choose from and with prices starting at $15/month, it's hard not to give them a try. Check out our full review here .
#3 - Bright Socks
The site claims they have the best socks you've ever worn. They offer a variety of styles and colors, including yoga, running, sandals and diabetic. Not to mention fun patterns that make it difficult to decide which ones you like best. They feature a monthly sock of the month club that sends subscribers unique pairs every month. Starting at $6.50 per pair, Bright Socks is one of our top picks because they have many different socks styles to choose from. You can also take your pick when it comes to pricing options ranging from $9-$15 per pair plus shipping. Or if you want a 3 pack for $10 then go for it! Bright Socks ships internationally as well which makes them great for gift giving or just grabbing some fresh new socks for yourself.
#4 - Darn Tough Vermont
Vermont-based Darn Tough makes ultra-durable socks that will last a lifetime. We’re talking top-notch, military grade construction here. Their socks are all made in Vermont (even if they don’t make all of their socks in Vermont) and each pair is guaranteed for life with no strings attached! If your socks wear out, you send them back to Darn Tough and they’ll replace them for free—no questions asked. For most companies, lifetime guarantees only apply to products purchased through an authorized dealer or retailer; but not Darn Tough. They also stand behind their customer service, offering a 1-800 number for when you need help or advice choosing a new pair of hiking shoes or wool socks for everyday wear.
#5 - Tommy John
You’ve probably heard of a sock subscription service called Sock Genius. If you haven’t, that just means you weren’t on Twitter in 2007 when Tucker Max posted a funny picture of socks poking out of his pants. Fast forward to 2017 and sock subscriptions are still pretty popular. And let me tell you, it was really hard for me to decide whether or not Tommy John was better than Bombas (and vice versa). I had to make both of them #1 and #2 in my final list because they were both really well put together—the perfect balance between cheap/affordable and high-quality/thickness.
#6 - Birchbox Man
The three-year-old Birchbox launched a men’s version in January 2015, called Birchbox Man. A sock subscription service, each month members receive two curated pairs of socks, which are available for purchase at $15 each. Most subscriptions also include sample beauty products and lifestyle items such as sunglasses or high-end chewing gum. Birchbox Man also offers customers a personalized profile to personalize future purchases and upgrade options. All orders are shipped from New York City within one business day. Prices range from $10 per month for one pair of socks to $30 per month for six pairs of socks plus extras like shirts or hats.
