The SOLOSOCKS Story
SOLOSOCKS was established in Copenhagen in 2016 based on the problem of missing socks. Coming from big families, our founders were tired of pairing socks during each laundry session. Why was it that socks kept on going missing? After a ton of research, we realized that there was no explanation. Socks simply just disappear.
Instead of finding out what the problem was, we decided to come up with a solution: SOLOSOCKS - a pack of 7 single socks designed to mix and match. This meant that you never had to spend time pairing your socks again. When you have SOLOSOCKS, you simply take the socks that look similar and put them together in the packaging which turns into a portable storage box.
When people buy a pair of socks, and one goes missing (or get's a hole in it), they usually throw both socks out. Imagine how many times you have done this. It's actually a huge problem for the environment. Textile waste is one of the biggest threats to our planet, so imagine how much of that waste is actually socks! With SOLOSOCKS we encourage people to buy 7 socks. This way, you never have that problem. And if you loose 6 socks, you can always restock on the style. SOLOSOCKS are different in many ways, which allows you to express your individuality with freedom, convenience and ease of use.
I know what you're thinking: "I can just buy a bunch of black socks". Sure - that is a solution (if you're boring as hell). We want to create awesome colorful socks in cool designs, therefore we have decided against making plain socks for now. We want to make socks that make you happy, that are different, that people notice, and that just look awesome. Life is too short to wear black socks - so don't!
