A new level of comfort

October 2011

Your business socks have never been so sporty

Urban Comfort is the sporty business sock from BLACSOCKS for men who want to be well dressed whatever the occasion.

The best way to walk is on a soft surface: Urban Comfort socks have a soft terry sole and smooth finish, making them really comfortable to wear. The comfort cuff stops them cutting into the ankle. Socks do not get much more comfortable than this.

The smooth light one

Business light socks

Unlike the classical calf socks, the Business light is not ribbed, is significantly thinner and yet hard-wearing and opaque. The high proportion of mercerised cotton – also known as fil d’Ecosse – provides a silky, wash-resistant sheen and high durability.

The socks are manufactured in northern Italy. They meet the requirements of the Oeko-Tex 100 standard and are thus non-irritating to the skin and allergy-tested.

Like all our products, the Business light ...

Excellent comfort of wear

In different colors

Our calf socks are winners of a consumer test survey and the bestsellers of the BLACKSOCKS line.

They are made from the most high-quality cotton types in the world: Pima cotton - also called "the silk of South America." This cotton is characterized by its high stability and tension resistant strength. Thanks to the cotton's long fibers, the socks become linty less quickly and are more durable.

Over one million pairs sold!

Back in 1999, we launched the sockscription, a completely new idea designed to free men from sock stress. In 2008 – thanks to you – we have a good reason to celebrate: The delivery of our one millionth pair of calf socks!

At first, our vision of a world free of sock stress was dismissed as a lunatic idea, but word soon spread and a growing number of satisfied customers helped to carry the idea of a sock subscription out into the world. We now supply socks to 60,000...
