BLACKSOCKS invented the world's first sockscription in 1999 to rid men of sock sorrows. We had cause for celebration in September 2008 when we delivered our millionth pair of calf socks! Today, we deliver to 60,000 customers who can go through their everyday lives free of sock sorrows. They enjoy the unlimited luxury of never having to worry about socks again, thus saving many hours a year.
Swiss consumer magazine K-Tipp tested the 14 best-selling men's black socks in 2003, 2008 and 2012. BLACKSOCKS calf socks were included in all three tests.
The tests prove that our efforts to produce the very best quality have paid off: In each of the three independent tests, our calf socks were considered among the best socks in Switzerland and given an overall rating of "good". These independent tests show that our calf socks are not only extremely comfortable, they last well too. The latest test report can be found in the 21 March 2012 issue of K-Tipp.
In 2008, BLACKSOCKS calf socks even came out top of tests carried out by television consumer show «Kassensturz» and K-Tipp with a score of 5.2 out of a possible 6. You can download the Kassensturz "Calf socks come top of test" report as a podcast.
Our efforts to ensure continuity and quality have paid off not only for our satisfied customers, but also in independent tests,as the consistently good test results show.
Test our calf socks for yourself. You can test our calf socks as a single trial pair for CHF 12/€ 10 or as a sockscription (3 deliveries of 3 pairs of socks per year) for CHF 98/€ 66. Of course, all prices include postage and packing.
