Science and Sock It to Me!

Nerd Much?, a nerdy pop culture site, noticed that we’ve had some science going on!

Our new fall line is, as Nerd Much? put it, “loaded with extra nerdy science-inspired designs”. We are getting a little spacey, and gamey, and alieny! Just look at all these science socks from our new release.

They also noted that we have science socks in all sizes—from kids to wide calf. Nothing gets past them!

See what else Nerd Much? says about our seriously scientific socks in their article.

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!

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.

Esquire: January 2018

Esquire featured our Men’s One Giant Leap socks in their article: The 10 Best Pairs of Anti-Boring Socks for Under $20.

“Socks might be rooted in functionality, but they can be so much more than that if you let them. While the crazy-socks-with-a-suit move feels stale, a more casual, street-style approach to a cool sock feels especially on-point at the moment.”
