Classy Calf Socks in Black: Elegantly multicolored
The fine gray stripes, which stop at the ribbing, lend a unique appearance to these black socks. The pattern gives the impression that the socks are single-colored, although they are actually multicolored. We call them "Faux-uni," and they are very easy to combine with whatever you are wearing. The socks are based on our Classic calf socks, made of soft, durable Pima cotton.

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.
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.
For people & the environment
The cultivation of textile raw materials, especially cotton, requires a lot of water and a lot of energy. The consumption of energy leads to CO2. In addition to the production of the raw materials, each processing stage plays a role in this. The best thing for the environment is if the products are produced in an environmentally friendly way and last as long as possible. This is why my raw materials were processed exclusively in Europe with the goal of a long service life.
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.
I am packaged in a small paper bag to protect me from dirt. Protection is important to ensure that I reach you in all my glory. Plastic has been out since January 2020. Isn’t that much better? And if you recycle the paper, that would be even better still.
Climate-neutral shipping from Switzerland
I am shipped by Swiss Post using the ‘Pro-Clima’ label, which ensures carbon-offset shipping. My journey to you is completely climate-neutral. And the best bit: this is at no additional cost to you. You just get free, speedy deliveries like always.
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.
