Why you need good socks
A good pair of socks should be warm, soft and comfortable. A great pair of socks will also be durable, look good with your shoes and protect your feet against germs and bacteria that may cause you to get sick. Is it any wonder that many people say their favorite socks are their most worn item of clothing? Even if you don’t wear them as often as shoes, socks are an essential part of everyday life for both men and women. The humble sock has evolved from being a practical foot covering to being an expression of personal style—and all kinds can add elegance to your day-to-day. That’s why we created Philosockphy Socks: they’re comfortable, practical, durable and stylish!
How to buy good socks
If you’re one of those people who rips open your socks with an audible rip, tosses them aside and doesn’t think about them again until they have holes in them, it’s time to learn what good socks are made of. A few key things: If they’re too thick, they won’t wick moisture away from your feet as well as thinner ones will; if they don't wick moisture away from your feet, you're going to get sweaty feet; if you get sweaty feet, your shoes will stink. We love cushioned socks for just about everything but running; those are best worn without cushioning for better breathability.
Why subscribe to a sock of the month club
Do you love socks but aren’t sure where to start your search for fantastic ones that won’t fade, tear or fall apart? That’s where our sock of the month club comes in. In addition to providing you with a new pair every single month (or every other month, depending on your subscription), we let you choose which style you want so that you can mix it up every now and then. Maybe you love sturdy ankle-highs in deep green and purple stripes, but have had enough of solid black crew socks with white polka dots after your last 10 pairs. We get it! The best part is not having to worry about any of that because we’ve got it covered for you.
Why wear only one pair of socks at a time
Most men have three pairs of shoes and it’s recommended you wear one pair for each day of the week. This means that most men only wear about three pairs of socks in any given year! We’re not sure how or why that happened but our philosophy is: Why stop at 3? We want to give you at least one reason to change your mind. Sign up for Philosockphy Socks and we will send you a different pair every month! But there’s no need to worry, they won’t clash with your other outfits.

Do you sleep better with less stuff in your bedroom? No. Do you worry less about locking your home because there's less to steal? Nope. Does it feel great to live in a clutter-free house (or apartment)? No way. Are you happier, more successful and have more self-respect when surrounded by junk and clutter that makes you miserable day after day after day? I know I wasn't when my house was full of junk and clutter. So what was that all about then??!
