What's Your Sock Philosophy?

What's Your Sock Philosophy?

If you’re like me, when you think of the word sock, your mind conjures up thoughts of granny-stockinged old ladies and scenes from The Sound of Music. When my husband saw that I had subscribed to sock of the month Club, he just shook his head in disgust. What’s the point? he asked me incredulously. But it turns out that men can get in on the fun, too! Some sock subscriptions are available in men’s sizes or both men and women’s sizes.

A Philosopher Thinks About Socks

Socrates famously had a dialogue with a sock. Plato, in his Phaedo, describes how Socrates would converse with his slave’s socks while awaiting execution by drinking poison (!). The philosopher’s final words were reportedly: Crito, we owe a cock to Asclepius. Please pay it and don’t forget. Also please, think of our friend Chaerephon and do remember him when you make any sacrifice; and if you meet anyone from Pontus [Socrates’ home city], greet him for me. And as for yourself, my dear Crito... watch over your health... Take care of yourself. Goodbye, then! What did Socrates tell that sock?

Why Subscribe to a sock of the month Subscription

In short, socks subscriptions are a great way to stay stocked up on fresh socks. But there’s more to it than that. When you subscribe to a sock of the month club, you’re investing in your Philosockphy (feel free to make up your own version of that word if you want). Think about it: why do you wear socks and what do they mean to you? Why do you wear certain kinds or colors and not others? What kind of philosophy do your shoes and socks reflect about who you are or what kind of life do you live or would like to live? If all those questions seem silly, remember: A person wearing funky wild socks is at least trying something different. And that is never bad thing.

How to Choose a Monthly Sock Subscription

There are many reasons to subscribe to a sock of the month club. It’s fun! You get surprise socks! New socks for every month! By now, you probably know what your favorite kind of sock is—but how do you decide which kind of sock subscription to sign up for? While some people love surprises and want new socks every month, others prefer picking out their own monthly pair. If you’re considering joining a monthly sock subscription service but don’t want surprises, consider these three criteria before signing up: style, comfort and price.
