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.
We sockscription socks arrive as a three in a cardboard box. The box is designed to fit in your letterbox. This means that we come straight to you even when you aren’t at home, without your having to make a trip to the post office – and all with free priority shipping worldwide.
Ribbing for a natural feel
My ribbed structure is elastic and nestles against your skin without being obtrusive. The ribbed structure is fine and elegant, ensuring that you look great for every occasion. Promise!
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.
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.
A series of top marks
Although I am not a sports sock, I have a thoroughly sporty attitude and I have already had to prove myself in numerous tests throughout my career. Top marks, test winners, podium positions: that’s all within reach. I have consistently been one of the best socks in Switzerland since 2003.
Such quality tests are not without their difficulties. We are really put through the mill - scrubbed, pulled and worn. However, all of this is nothing compared to the wear and tear of everyday life.
