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.

Millions of sales

I may be unique, but I am not a one-off, as good ideas tend to be copied. Millions of me have been produced, sold and sent since the summer of 1999. Tens of thousands of men put me on every day. They don’t go easy on me, whether in everyday life or in unusual situations. I have visited every continent and have been to Antarctica and the roof of Africa.

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.

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.

Tradition & further development

In November 1998, the future founders of BLACKSOCKS were seeking the perfect socks. My Italian manufacturer put me into the running. 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.

Good does not have to mean expensive

Cotton prices have been rising since 1999. Value added tax rates have increased. Competing products have become more expensive. I used to be cheaper to send. However, my prices have never changed.

With me, you can still enjoy 1999 prices every day.

System flaw

Every year there is a different weave flaw so that you can trace my year of production. This means that you can check how old I am, as I won’t tell you: not because I am unfriendly, but because socks can’t speak…

Also: navy, black or brown

My first eight years were black. The same went for my buddies in the sock range. That’s now a thing of the past.

I have been available in different colours since 2007, but with the same level of quality.
