Fall’s Well That Ends Well

You might see “Back to School” signs hanging in stores and shudder. This is the end of summer. There were more hikes to be hiked, rivers to be paddled, and patios to be lounged upon!

But the end of summer is not something to be mourned. Instead, early fall is an opportunity for forging new paths, exploring your creative side, and indulging small comforts. This is what inspired our new fall sock release.

Get Extra Curricular

We always loved going back to school. That new pencil smell, brand new binders, a fresh new start to a new year. It was a clean slate and everything was possible.

School isn’t the end of summer, it’s an exciting new beginning! You’re not going to be the same person by the end of the year.  Walk into it confidently knowing this campus is yours, and this knowledge is yours to be had. These amazing women are taking on the campus in STRETCH-IT Launch From Earth, Horsehead Nebula, and Women’s One Giant Leap.

If you aren’t headed back to a classroom this fall, the world is full of opportunities to quench your thirst for knowledge. The more you feed your curiosity, the hungrier it gets. The more you learn about the world around you, the more you know about yourself and can share it with the world!

The subject matter of our socks & underwear, how best to present it to you, even the technology to create the best-fitting and longest-lasting clothing—all of this requires learning. It’s not just on the job either, our love for knowledge goes with us everywhere (as you might have read in our Geek Pride Day blogs). And it really shows in our new fall socks: Space Craft, STRETCH-IT Joining Elements, and Cleo-catra!

Let Your Inquisitive Nature Run Wild

Adventure doesn’t stick to one season. Summer has no claim to spontaneity or once-in-a-lifetimes experiences. So, are you going to let a little drizzle get in your way? No. You’re a hardcore! You’re wild! Puddles were made to be splashed in. Paths are waiting to be made.

We find that our creative energy gets recharged when we allow ourselves to wander through the woods, no matter the weather. Something about the untamed wild helps us get inspired by exploring the outer reaches of our imaginations. The new paths we create outside help us create new connections in our brain. Our new fall line was inspired by this and you can see the natural connection in Well-Quailified, Darling Starlings, and Encyclopedia Botanica.

Creature Comforts in the Fall

The best part of finishing a rainy hike, is getting comfy again. Getting into warm, dry clothes? Check!  Slurping on something warm? Check!  Grabbing beers with your hiking buddies? Check!

Even if you love fall hikes, watching the days get shorter can be tough. Goodbye seemingly endless days of summer sun, welcoming us outside like a warm hug! Now that warm hug can be rich, steamy coffee. Catch up over coffee dates with friends you haven’t seen for weeks. Maybe they’ve been busy traveling. Maybe you’ve been busy camping. Now you can both breathe for a minute and relax in Coffee Break.

Whether it’s kids socks for back to school, crew socks to adventure in, or knee highs to indulge your comforts, embrace the season and be yourself.

And let’s not forget, with summer ending, that means Halloween is right around the corner!

Walking on Sunshine

Something New Under the Sun

Summer’s here. Our shoulders relax, our eyes focus on the horizon, and we let out a collective sigh, “Ahhhhhhh….” It’s time to shift perspective from inward out onto the bright and beautiful world around us!

Sunlight brings new things to light: friendship, color, & humor. We captured all of that in our new new sock collection. Let’s take a look.

Step Into the Light

During the winter months, we can get a little too introverted. Sure, our cats and indoor plants enjoy the extra attention, but once the sun breaks through, our eyes begin to wander outside the confines of our homes.

Cat-ercise Crew Socks for Women, Retro Rainbow Crew Socks for WomenMake the most of these longer days while they’re here! What better way to celebrate the sunshine than with friends? Women’s crew socks like Cat-ercise and Retro Rainbow remind us of our chilhoods—playing with Lite-Brite & making up silly dances in our living rooms (or was that last Saturday?). If you can’t get a little giggly in the sun with your friends, when can you?

Our connections make us stronger and happier, so find that silly self and do something absolutely childish! Pick up your phone, pick up some chalk, and have some frivolous fun.

Bright This Way

STRETCH-IT Land of the Dino Knee High Socks for Women and Men, Stretch-It Reigning Confetti Knee High Socks for Women and MenIn the Northwest, the winter can get so dark we barely notice the colors around us. It’s not just that a tree will lose its leaves, we also just don’t see the green that’s there as vividly. Once the summer sun shows its face, BAM, green everywhere. Suddenly, we ask ourselves, “Was that building always purple?”

Colors just show more brightly in the summer and we wanted our new sock collection to POP in the sun. For example, STRETCH-IT Land of the Dino has dinosaurs and Paleo plants that are nearly neon & STRETCH-IT Reigning Confetti has a rainbow nearly bursting off it with confetti fit for any spontaneous dance party.

The indoors can be bright too, with kids socks Paws-itively Adorable & Keep Dreamin’ lighting up this room.

We picked the brightest crayons in the box—or chalk in the bin—to illuminate the fact that the most radiant season of the year is finally here.

It’s a Knee High…It’s a Crew…It’s a Pun!

Hang in There Knee High Socks for Women, Chew on This Crew Socks for Men, Something to Tweet About Knee High Socks for WomenThings aren’t always what they seem. On the surface, these colorful socks are just bright and have fun themes. This pink knee high sock is merely celebrating the aerial adventures of sloths—or so it would seem! Take a look at the sock to its right, just a nice crew sock passionate about pups. OR IS IT? Then there’s a knee high covered in birds carrying banners. Pretty straightforward. Think again!

Look closer at these socks and you’ll see there’s more than first meets the eye. Names might help: Hang in There, Chew on This, & Something to Tweet About.

Man Cave Crew Socks for Men, Mana-Tea Knee High Socks for Women

We LOVE puns. It puts two of our favorite things together: words & play. With Man Cave and Mana-Tea, your friends might approach to say, “Neat outdoor scene on your crew socks” or “Cute tea cup knee highs”. But, as they approach, they’ll see the true genius of your wardrobe choice. And like that, another layer is brought to light.

Ready to live your brightest life? Our new socks are ready to light the way!

Get to Know: Cat Buds

Get to Know Cat Buds

Instead of the classic edible flower arrangement, we created a petable flower arrangement.

 

SITM: What other SITM style do you think you pair well with?

Buds: I think Kitty Willows and I would make a beautiful bouquet.

SITM: What is your life philosophy?

Buds: Just keep growing a little every day and you’ll bloom into the most purrfect version of yourself!

SITM: What is your perfect date?

Buds: Whatever you do, DO NOT show up with a bouquet of flowers!

SITM: When you’re on a foot, where would you like to go?

Buds: Gardens! I want to see what plants grow around the world! Do other animals bloom in flowers, or am I the only one?

 

Live in the meow, get yourself a pair of Cat Buds.
