The real pros of sock subscriptions

Sock subscriptions can help keep you out of socks ruts. When it comes to your toes, picking a style that feels like second nature is important because an ill-fitting sock can do more than just ruin your ensemble—it can cause blisters, chafing, rubbing, and pain in generally uncomfortable places. With a monthly sock subscription from Philosockphy, you’ll always have options for how to top off your footwear for each season or occasion. And with options that fit everyone from adults to teens, there are enough styles available that everyone in your family will get their own monthly selection.

How these socks can improve your life

These socks can improve your life in numerous ways, some more meaningful than others. Philosockphy is all about improving upon ourselves through little things; these socks are a great way to do that. It’s important to know what you stand for, and even more important to live it every day. For example, one pair of socks might have a well-known phrase like love conquers all on them in big bold letters; another pair could remind you not to be so hard on yourself as often as we tend to be. Whatever kind of good thoughts or philosophies you want sent your way every single day, these socks can help make sure they happen. This means putting positive or inspirational messages in places where you will see them multiple times per day.

Tips for getting the most out of your monthly sock subscription

When you sign up for a sock-of-the-month subscription, you’re making an investment. It’s important to maximize your investment by choosing high-quality socks that will last. Start by selecting a sock type that works best with your lifestyle. Then follow these tips: Wash socks inside out, which keeps them from pilling or fading as fast as if they were washed on their own. Never dry in a dryer. Turn socks inside out before drying so that they don’t shrink; machine dry socks flat or in pairs, not stacked one on top of another (like in a pile). Be sure not to buy big enough to get over your feet when putting them on!

Real cons of sock subscriptions

If you don’t love socks, sock subscription boxes might seem like a waste of money. When they don’t fit or aren’t quite right, it can feel like throwing money away. (And if they never get used, that means they weren’t a good value to begin with.) It can also be tough to match socks: some subscription boxes send an odd number of pairs; some have vague descriptions that don’t say whether multiple pairs are exactly alike or just coordinate; and it can be frustrating if your feet grow but your socks don't—or vice versa. And in general, for most people, a basic sock is fine for daily wear—and much less expensive than buying them by color-coordinated six-packs!

How companies can improve their subscription service

The biggest issue is that companies are still struggling to find new ways to improve their service. For example, one popular">sock of the month service sends out cotton knee-high socks every month in exchange for a monthly subscription fee. While they’re certainly useful, you can get cotton knee-high socks at most retail stores for far less money than you’d pay on a subscription service. Philosophically, we should ask: What value are these companies providing? In order to fix their business model, they should start by doing some research into what kinds of problems people have with their sock drawers and then figure out how best to solve those problems through a novel product or service offering.
