Which Sock is Right for You?

A lot of people ask what kind of socks they should wear, but there’s rarely a right answer. It just depends on the situation. Different socks are designed to be worn at different times of year and in different situations, so understanding these contexts can help you determine which type of sock would be best suited to your needs on any given day. This month we’re going to explore the different types of socks you might want to consider based on the seasons and situations you face. Keep reading to find out more!

How Philosocks got started

After years of friends, family, and coworkers asking about my socks, I began to wonder if there was a way to change things up a bit. There are socks for every occasion--business, sporty, and casual--but no one out there was offering a truly personalized sock experience. So Philosocks decided to create it by building an online marketplace that offers people curated sock subscriptions. We help customers discover and buy high-quality socks without all of that picker fatigue they would otherwise experience going into stores or trying to shop online on their own. Our sock-of-the-month club gives everyone in your life a chance to get something they'll love but you don't have to be stuck with boring pairs again!

Why you should start wearing more colorful socks

Most socks you’ll see out in public are all boring colors: black, gray, brown. But when it comes to your feet and toes, you want options! There are socks that go with everything and make every pair of shoes look a little bit better. A little while ago we shared our sock philosophy, which inspired us to create Philosockphy—the science behind choosing what colors go together on socks. Choosing socks by philosophic principle is tricky at first—but once you’ve figured out what makes sense to you, it can lead to some great combinations of colors and patterns. The best part about wearing colorful socks? No one else has them!

Gift for men

gifting a pair of socks to someone special can be daunting. It seems like every man has his favorite brand, style and fabric. To solve your gifting dilemma, we created our own sock subscription called Philosockphy - a monthly sock delivery service tailored to your recipient's personality. We cover everything from cotton socks to dress socks and even colorfully patterned socks. Also unlike most subscription services, we offer free shipping on all of our products with no minimum order amounts required! Our next generation sock catalog features photo galleries of each design along with product descriptions so you know exactly what you're gifting. Whether it's a boyfriend, husband or dad that you're shopping for, we've got some great suggestions that will leave them wanting more!

Gift for women

If you’re not sure what to get her, it’s time to discover her Philosockphy. No matter who she is, or what she does, there’s a pair of socks that can help express who she really is. If you want to see her face light up on Christmas morning (or any day of choice), let our sock consultants match your gift recipient with a pair of socks based on their personal Philosockphy: Casual Work / Weekend, Sensual / Glamorous, or Feminine and Classic. Each pack comes with three different pairs of socks and all come in beautiful packaging. The gifts are unique and thoughtful.

Gift for couples

Some like it hot. Some like it cold. Some like to smell their own feet. Do you have a partner who marches to his or her own drum, sock-wise? Why not let them celebrate their individuality with a monthly sock subscription service?! We don’t mean joke subscriptions – these socks really do get delivered straight to your partners doorstep each month, giving them something new and exciting and maybe even a little weird every time they slip into their kicks! It’s great! They love it!

Gifts under $25

Not everyone has a lot of money to spend on socks, but that doesn’t mean they don’t want them. Luckily, there are plenty of sock gifts under $25 that anyone would be happy to receive. For under $25 you can get a fun or unique pair of socks every month, or maybe even every other month. If you haven’t tried sock subscriptions yet then you should try one today because they make great gifts!

What's in a name?

Philosockphy is an important part of any sock. It's what makes you feel confident and prepared each day.
