Smarter Socks: a quick explanation
Imagine your phone could communicate with your socks. Your phone would know:
- which socks belong together,and could help sort them out,
- how often you have washed your socks,
- when your socks were produced,
- when you ordered your socks and
- when your socks were dispatched.
Your iPhone can also tell you if your black socks are no longer properly black and help you buy new socks.
This is something we dreamed about and we have made the dream come true. The result is Smarter Socks - probably the smartest socks in the world. They are undoubtedly the first socks which leave their mark on the internet via the Sock Sorter and your iPhone.
Making sure you really install the app
You’ll probably say to yourself: “I might look at this app at some point”. Then you'll forget about it, and then you'll say again: "I'll have a look at that app". In order to break this cycle and keep your head clear for more important things, we suggest the following:
No subscription traps
We sockscription socks want to be worn and see the world. Ending up left unused in a dark sock drawer is every sock’s nightmare.
To make sure that you never have too many socks, it is up to you to monitor your sockscription: you choose whether and when to renew, bring forward or end your subscription.
One month before renewal time, you will receive a letter from BLACKSOCKS to remind you and ensure that you don’t forget to renew. If only everything was so easy.
Made in Italy
I come from a small sock manufacturer in northeast Milan, which makes me Italian. They create high-quality socks such as me with a great passion for detail. Three siblings are running the business in second generation ensuring that lots of socks turn out as good as me.
100% skin-friendly & allergy-tested
I am good for you, your feet and your skin: I have been tested and I meet the Oeko-Tex® Standard 100.
This standard says that I am 100% skin-friendly and allergy-tested. We often forget that socks are worn directly against the skin, in a damp and warm climate subjected to friction.
Finest Pima cotton
It takes more than just good origins to make good socks – you also need high-quality materials. I am made of high-quality Pima cotton, better known as the silk of South America. This guarantees a lasting softness and comfort when worn.
I am strengthened with polyamide in the heel and sole area, meaning that I can withstand daily rubbing in shoes without developing holes. My band contains elastane to stop me from slipping down.
