No more tedious shopping

My cousins, specialist retail and department store socks, have already annoyed plenty of people. Generally, people buy various models to try. They try them at home and pick their favourite, and then head back into the store with a clear vision: ‘more of the same socks’.

My cousins eventually become floppy and you have to head back to the store. Unfortunately, your favourites are no longer available and you have to begin the decision process all over again. Our sockscription makes this problem a thing of the past. Until you cancel us, we subscription socks are delivered to you regularly – and always in the same design.

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.

Original sockscription from BLACKSOCKS

Who invented it? The Swiss, or more specifically a Swiss man named Samy Liechty. In 1999, at a time of the emergence of the internet when subscription business was limited to newspapers and magazines, BLACKSOCKS invented and launched the sockscription.

Samy Liechti has told us how he came up with the idea of the sockscription. How about you?

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 the second generation ensuring that lots of socks turn out as good as me.

Shining and refined – Fil d’Ecosse

Shining and refined – Fil d’Ecosse I am made from mercerised cotton. Mercerisation is a finishing process for cotton which gives me a silky, wash-resistant shine and also makes me stronger. Mercerised cotton is also more colourfast and creates very little lint. Polyamide in the form of Lycra® is found in my toe and sole areas to provide additional strengthening.

So why is this also known as Fil d’Ecosse? It’s very simple: the Scot John Mercer invented the process, which is why mercerised cotton is also called Fil d’Ecosse. Scottish roots and a French name – rather difficult for me as an Italian!

Totally smooth and unribbed

I owe my beauty not just to my high-quality materials, but also to my workmanship. My smooth surface makes me light and elegant, ensuring that I am an excellent companion for important meetings or your next wedding party. With me, you can dance the night away.

Due to my lack of ribbing I look great, even stunning, in any shoe.

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.

In November 1998, the future founders of BLACKSOCKS were seeking the perfect socks. My Italian manufacturer fielded me as a candidate. The selection process was not easy, but I won. Since then, our careers have been intertwined. As in any career, I am continuing to develop, but at heart I have remained the same: an honest sock for every day.

Also striped and in colour

Thanks to my success, I am now available in multiple versions: classic black, anthracite, navy blue and brown. Stripy versions of me have also been launched to better express my particular style.

Don’t think of me as childish socks, I would take that as an insult - as a stripy sock I am nothing but lovely and elegant.
