How does the sockscription work?
Are you still making individual purchases or do you already have a subscription?
These days, our lives are so complicated that something is always being forgotten – like the need to replenish our sock supply. You can, of course, order your socks from us one pair at a time, but a sockscription is far more straightforward.
With the sockscription, you will receive the socks you urgently need, without having to do anything since 1999. This dramatically changes the relationship between man and sock. You no longer have to be actively involved – we will take care of everything for you.
You can choose between the original sockscription with several deliveries of 3 pairs of socks or the extreme sockscription of 12 pairs of socks per year. That means that all your socks will wear at the same rate. Subscription beats studying.
«Like a newspaper, you receive socks through the letterbox at regular intervals. Ideally, always the same design.»
Why does this require a sockscription?
Quite simply, because:
- No-one likes buying socks.
- Everyone constantly needs socks.
- No-one likes sorting socks after the wash.
- Individual sock orphans will always find a pair!
Our sockscriptions are annual subscriptions. After a year, the subscription will be automatically renewed for another year, just like a newspaper subscription. One month before renewal, you will be reminded of the upcoming renewal by email. You can stop the automatic renewal at any time in your MyAccount area, as well as postpone the renewal or repeat an order.
Who invented it?
The idea arose from an embarrassing meeting and developed into a product, which finally morphed into BLACKSOCKS. While there is now a myriad of product subscriptions available on the internet, the sockscription was the first.
