Tell me about the different sock brands and which one's for me!!
We'd love to introduce the various brands in our wonderful amazing super sock (and tights, and leggings, and knee hi and thigh hi and knit and mesh and wool and 100% cotton and phew! I'll just get on with it.) line up we have to offer you.
I love these socks so hard I hyperventilate when I have to do a sock buy from them. Designed by a Parisian with a sense of humor, an eye for design, and a creative touch with fabric, these are fun fashionable socks, never "novelty". Buy these if you're a boot person or a thigh hi sock person with style and a touch of the whimsical.
If you don't know Smartwool you should. These are the wool socks that aren't itchy or boring. They're comfy, breathable, fun, and warm warm warm to keep your toes cozy through the long, cold winter. They're high performance socks to help you perform your best even when it's cold out. You don't have to sacrifice comfort or style to have warmth -- you can have it all with these Smartwool socks.
Cute and fun with a splash of punk, Loungefly takes classic characters and puts them on socks (and other accessories). We love what they've done with Hello Kitty, the Smurfs, and even Tootsie Rolls, and you will, too! They've also got Kawaii Island and Crowded Teeth, based on characters by current designers in the vein of Japanese Harajuku style and ironic cuteness.
A longtime sock standard invented by Karen Bell in her living room in 1982, and loved world-wide since then. You'll see the fun twists they've put into their socks, like the "predatory animal eats your foot" series or the Japanese tabi socks with cherry blossoms. K.Bell also features a line of socks based on the iconic works of Laurel Burch. Even if you don't recognize the name "Laurel Burch", we're sure you'll recognize the rich animal prints when you see them.
Celeste Stein Socks, Tights, Leggings
Family run business, made here in the USA, and designed originally by the amazingly creative Celeste Stein who is a warm and welcoming person on top of being a world class designer.

If you see a print that you like that’s not offered in the style you’re looking for, just let us know, and we’ll get it for you.
Fashion with a conscious, these eco friendly socks are made from reclaimed cotton. Fun and fashionable colors with a perfect mid-season warmth. Made locally in the USA as well. Their catch phrase is "Because Life is Too Short to Wear White Socks!"
Sock It To Me Socks
Some of the most fun sock out there, the Sock It To Me line is overflowing with playful knee high socks, crew socks, and footies. They are great for cheering you up on a gloomy day and are great for adding some whimsy to your outfits and giving to friends and family. Some staff favorites are the red and white striped pirate sock and the Sprinkle Toes confetti dotted sock, as well as the Ninja sock (omg ninja socks!). They also make a bunch of cute leg warmers to choose from, and some fancy crochet fishnets thrown in for good measure. Designed in Portland and across the country by real sock wearers, there are socks in this line for any occasion.
Happy Socks are colorful socks designed in Sweden and manufactured in Turkey, by a factory that makes socks for both the Belgian and Turkish armies. With a handlinked toe that ensures a perfect fit and made from cotton that is combed to leave only the longest and most comfortable threads, these fun cotton socks are built for comfort and longevity.
Lara Kazan Hosiery
Those of you who boutique shop in Manhattan know this wonderful designer's leg warmers and hosiery. She won't be restocking this line, so when you buy one you'll truly be getting a one in a million look. Gorgeously well made with brass and suede fixings and an amazing attention to detail over-all, these leg warmers really make an outfit.
Hansel from Basel Socks and Tights
Socks, tights, and stocking with a fantastic whimsical twist. We love these so much and are sad because the line-up changes so quickly our favorites go too soon. Rest assured though, the new designs are always amazing too.
Diesel Sweeties Socks
Rock on with pixel socks from the creator of indie rock web comic Diesel Sweeties.
A little punk, a little funk, and lots of fun. Surprisingly wearable on a daily basis. (I'm wearing their button leggings as we speak, or er, as I type and all.)
