The 6 Best Sock Subscriptions

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) Uncommon Goods

Uncommon Goods offers a variety of different options that appeal to multiple interests and preferences. The sock subscription service sends members a new pair of socks every month, which can be chosen from one of three themes: sporty, classic or wild socks. Members pay $12/month and can receive either one pair per month for 3 months (for a total cost of $36), two pairs per month for 6 months (for a total cost of $72) or three pairs per month for 12 months (for a total cost of $144). Common Goods also offers other subscriptions like throw blankets and home accessories. A free shipping is included in all memberships. Each member is only allowed to sign up once, but they are able to cancel anytime with no obligations.

2) Happy Socks

When it comes to socks, it’s hard to beat a little bit of indulgence. Happy Socks does just that with its collection of cool socks and colorful patterns. The company also offers subscription services for both men and women, so you can make sure your feet are happy every month. Whether you’re looking for fun novelty socks or something more stylish, you can order from either line. Men get six pairs of novelty socks in assorted colors each month, while women receive four pairs each month; both lines have exciting options and will certainly add some flair to your feet. Men start at $19 per month and women at $16 per month. Shipping is free in most countries.

3) Bombas

Bombas socks have four factors going for them: Bombas (1) uses different foot models, (2) comes in both women’s and men’s sizes, (3) makes socks out of incredibly soft material, and (4) donates a pair of socks to homeless shelters for every pair purchased. All told, it's a pretty cool concept that I've noticed many people taking advantage of through their sock subscriptions. If you're tired of your boring white crew socks or your ratty old tube socks, Bombas is definitely worth checking out!

4) Bamboo Rock

At Bamboo Rock, they have a variety of sock subscriptions to choose from. They even offer a sock of the month club if you don’t want to subscribe to their other services. Their socks are made with high-quality bamboo fibers and synthetic polyester that allows for thermal regulation, and moisture wicking so your feet won’t feel sweaty and gross all day long. What makes Bamboo Rock different is that they hand pick each design by searching for unique patterns from around the world rather than taking designs from ordinary socks found in stores.

5) Sock Crush

A sock subscription is a great gift idea for just about anyone and pairs perfectly with holiday stockings. In addition to giving a nice present each month, you can also get people excited about giving cool socks as gifts. The most common format for sock subscriptions is that a person will receive one pair of men’s or women’s socks each month and they typically arrive in fun packaging like decorated boxes or pillowcases. You’ll find a wide variety of fabrics, styles, and designs available at any given time; because these aren’t impulse purchases, subscribers can often customize their preferences to get exactly what they want. When deciding whether to buy someone (or yourself) a sock subscription as a holiday gift, make sure you know their size!

6) Novelty.woot

It’s not a sock of the month club, but it is an awesome site to browse for novelty socks. On Novelty.woot you can order single pairs of awesome socks or sign up for a subscription service that delivers a variety of different colors and styles each month. The company has been around since 2009 and offers an impressive selection of trendy men’s and women’s socks, including athletic versions designed for specific sports and activities. If you want to buy cool socks, get some from Novelty.woot! You'll never go wrong with their giant selection (trust us). But be warned: It might lead to dangerous sock purchasing decisions.
