Seldom does anyone put much thought into what socks they are going to wear every day. Socks are there for warmth, for comfort and occasionally for fashion, yet still they are the quintessential bust of a Christmas present, and that makes me sad. In short, socks are an underrated commodity people often take for granted.
Without really trying, Sticky Be Socks has begun to change that bad rap. The idea for the company blossomed from its founder’s want for more sticky-sock color variety for daily workouts. The brand now offers socks of countless colors that bear a different inspiring message across their toe lines, like “be happy,” and “be strong.” Some socks are even catered towards the holidays (be merry) and those fighting breast cancer.
When they’re not offering a message to spice up your morning with a bit of courage or a simple smile, Sticky Be Socks is donating socks to babies in the NICU, Baby2Baby Los Angeles and Cancer Survivor support groups. Their mission is simple: use socks for support.
So whether you’re a major sock-lover, like I am, a workout junkie in need for some traction-clad socks, or simply someone in need of a little mood boost, check out Sticky Be Socks. You may be surprised when they give you just the inspiration you need.
