Made a Sock Company!

Hey guys,

I hope this is OK since it's not guitars!

Anyways, a little while ago a friend of mine from high school shared a kickstarter, I clicked on it because I thought it was the stupidest thing ever.

After checking out a few of the videos and seeing how much the founder of the company had raised, I decided to check out the product.

I called the founder, met up with him and was really impressed with what Leo had put together. He actually made these socks because of his experience dealing with poor quality socks while serving in the military.

Anyways, one of my business partners and I decided to buy into the company because we felt we could add a lot of value, and here we are a few months later with a brand new sexy site and a few improvements to the core product.

You can see them here:

Re: Made a Sock Company!

Where do you source your magic dust? I just got a price hike and am looking for options

I'd have bought a few pair except, there's no white?! Burgundy would look pretty, weird, with my Reeboks

Re: Made a Sock Company!

Thanks guys! Stoked to get this one up and running. So far I've only ever sold super niche products and this is our first product that literally anybody with feet can buy so it will be very different.

Re: Made a Sock Company!

I've ordered a couple of pairs, I love the idea of military engineered socks!

Hoping this spins into the next under-armor for you guys.

Re: Made a Sock Company!

My socks have arrived from Canada!

I was going to do a NSD (new sock day) thread, but then realised that's a bit too weird! I may do a full review of them though, once I've had the chance to gig them

So, any chance of a review?

Quite tempted to buy some.
