Some Wide Calf Sock Love

“Sock It to Me not only carries wide calf socks that go up to approximately 21″ widths, but they also have stretch-it technology that allows the socks to stretch without losing the design! This is a big deal for plus size women!” writes the Mighty Murphin Fashion Ranger.

She says, “You can wear them lounging around the house in pajamas or jazz up an outfit with them when you’re feeling playful!”

“…when it comes to socks and shoes, plus size women have a lot less options due to our wide calves,” says The Might Murphin Fashion Ranger.

In 2015 we created a new sock machine to fix that issue. It knits with a higher thread count so the socks stretch more without loosing the intended pattern. Since then, our STRETCH-IT™ collection has just kept growing.

Free to Travel

Road trips: the ultimate escape from modern life, rules, and routine. With no set times to be anywhere in particular, you can simply…go. Have you ever thought, on your way to work, if I don’t take my exit, I could be halfway to paradise by lunchtime? Us too, because it happens even if you love your job—the call of the open road is that strong.

Take a ride with us as we roll through the inspirations for our new styles for spring. Summer trips are so close that we can see them where the asphalt meets the horizon.

Find an Escape

We all get stuck in ruts—it happens to the best of us. Here in the Northwest, the rain drives us inside to maybe a little too much work, movie watching, and crafting. As the sun starts to peak out of the clouds (we call it Fool’s Spring) we plan and plot our dream travels for when the light truly emerges.

Men's Crew Socks Day Tripper and Women's Knee High Socks Jet Setter Worn on the back of a VW Van

Jet Setter knee highs are based on dreams of far away warm places that might earn us a passport stamp. Crew-zin men’s crews were inspired by those lazy Sunday drives with the windows down for a warm breeze—you don’t really have a destination and that’s exactly the point. We put all our road trip hopes and dreams into men’s Day Tripper though. The vans, trailers, and hatchbacks pictured on these crew socks are everything we need to break us out of routine and drive us to adventure. Take only what can fit in the back and leave the rest behind!

Find Yourself

Say Cheese! Women's Crew SocksYou never know what you’ll find on the road…maybe yourself? Once you leave the sweet comfort of your routine, what parts of yourself will make themselves known? Will you take up playing poker with dogs? Flying old-timey airplanes? Will you find the confidence to experience things you never thought you would? You have a lot waiting inside you that traveling might bring to the surface.

We think of ourselves in a certain way in our day-to-day lives, but once on the road, we’re photographers of new landscapes (inspiring women’s Say Cheese!) and navigators of new lands (inspiring Co-Pilot crews). We love discovering what’s hidden inside of us when we remove ourselves from familiar surroundings! And once we’re done here, just take off in 3, 2, 1, Lift Off knee highs—there’s always more to explore.

Find Paradise

Stellar Whale Knee High Sock for Women and KidsBringing things back down to Earth, when you’re on the road, the world is your backyard. It can feel like you are spending the whole road trip searching for your paradise. But when you wake up every day to the ocean, or the countryside, or a canopy of trees, what part doesn’t sound like paradise? We’re always on the lookout for magical creatures as well. Spotted: celestial whales and narwhals swimming in the night sky (women’s and kids’ Stellar Whale). Spotted: a jackalope in the field just off the driver’s side—I knew they were real (STRETCH-IT Jackalope).

The same will go for the people you meet: you share more than you don’t. As disparate as environments and communities may seem, you’ll find that we’re more alike than you imagined. Ultimately, you’ll return home feeling more connected, more yourself, and knowing that your paradise is where you make it. Our women’s socks, men’s styles, STRETCH-IT, & kids socks for spring were all inspired by the idea that exploration and discovery should be a part of your routine. Wear Tiki Toes crew socks and you’ll see that paradise follows you, not the other way around.

MR Features Our Upcoming Men’s Dressy Line

Sock It to Me is introducing a men’s dressy line—LUXE—later this year. MR, the Menswear Industry’s Magazine, met with our CEO and Design Director to go over the finer points of this new product.

“We’ve been looking at the dress market since 2015, but wanted to make sure we had the right aesthetic,” says CEO Michelle Walker. “In doing our research, one of the biggest problems we discovered was that male consumers were seeking socks with comfort and stay-up power, while still wanting to express their sense of style. It took us a while to find the right combination.”
