Get to know us
What makes a company? The people behind it, of course. We are small team with big ambitions, both for ourselves and our daily work.
Role: Head of Finance and Administration
I have been part of the BLACKSOCKS team since May 2019.
I make sure that our finances are all in order and up to date and take care of any administrative matters at BLACKSOCKS.
In my free time in the winter, you’ll find me in the mountains, either sledding with my family or skiing. I also love to travel all over the world and discover new countries and cultures.
My personal favorite of our products is the gray Invisible Socks with yellow highlights. My favorite men’s product is the elegant blue-striped Business Light socks. They look amazing with any shoe and are great for dancing the night away at a wedding.
Sabrina’s Favorite: Blue-Striped Business Light Socks
Fine stripes in blue tones create a unique pattern and go well with both your jeans and your suits. Add a touch of color to your outfits.
Role: Customer Service
I have been a member of the BLACKSOCKS team since March 2019.
As part of the Customer Services department, I am there to ensure that our customers always receive the help they need.
When I am not at work, I enjoy traveling and exploring new countries. My biggest passion is music – I just couldn’t imagine a world without it!
My favorite product is our Shorty Sneaker Socks. I only really wear sneakers, which means that Shortys are the perfect fit for me!
Aline’s Favorite: Shorty Sneaker Socks
Do you also like to wear sneakers? Shorty sneaker socks are the perfect height for all kinds of sneakers and gym shoes – and you don’t need to worry about blisters anymore, as these short socks stay exactly where they are meant to and don’t slip down.
Role: Campaign & Content Manager
I have been part of the BLACKSOCKS team since January 2022.
I make sure that the content on the website is always up-to-date and provide customers with news and special offers.
In my free time, I'm passionate about badminton and squash, and I also love to cook. In summer, however, you can find me almost every day at the Limmat.
My favorite product - difficult to decide. I love the cashmere modal socks because they are so incredibly soft! Or the Funky Socks, which make every outfit a real eye-catcher.

Mirjam’s Favorite: Funky Socks
The unique socks from Philip Fankhauser have their own rhythm. A flash of these Funky Socks showing between your shoe and pants makes for a real talking point, leaving dreary small talk about the weather for another day.
Role: Business Development
I invented the sockscription and founded BLACKSOCKS in 1999 together with Marcel Roth.
As a businessman, I am primarily responsible for business development and company management. As the company founder I represent the company to the public, as a speaker as well as a specialist.
In my private life I am a family man who enjoys taking to the slopes, and anyone wanting to give me a gift cannot go wrong with a good bottle of wine.
My favourite product is the Calf Sockscription, my companion since 1999.

Samy’s Favorite: The Sockscription
It has always been and still is a classic: the sockscription launched the BLACKSOCKS story. We have been cladding busy feet in socks (such as the classic calf socks) ever since, and ensuring that your sock supplies never run low.
Role: Customer Service Manager
I joined the BLACKSOCKS team in June 2020 and work in both customer service and marketing.
In the customer service department, it gives me great pleasure to be there for our customers.
In addition to my job, I enjoy looking after my horse.
My favorite product are merino wool socks. The orange spices up every outfit.
Sarah's Favorite: Merino Wool Socks in Orange
Not only outdoor enthusiasts and hiking enthusiasts will enjoy Merino socks. The Merino socks are also ideal for the office: They neutralize odors and regulate the temperature for an optimal climate.
