Just in time for Father’s day, here are two new Socks offerings that might just be that perfect gift for dear-old Dad!
Foot Cardigan (Crazy Socks)
Socks, with crazy designs, on subscription. Pay monthly ($9/month for one pair per month) or pay once for a 3, 6, 9, or 12 month subscription (about $11/per pair – get one per month, per subscription).
Beautifully designed website with an easy to to create subscription tool. The founders look like a lot of fun:
A copywriter, a web developer, a surgical equipment salesman, a Public Administration PhD, and a former music industry hack all walk into a bar…
Then the music industry guy decides to quit his job and travel around Europe for three months. But he forgets to bring enough socks so he buys a 10-pack of really weird socks. He loves wearing them and all the Europeans keep complimenting him on how cool his socks are (he’s pretty sure that’s what they were saying?).
When he comes back to the States, he sees a video about razors and looks down at his gloriously besocked feet and has the best idea of his whole damn life. So he calls up the copywriter guy, the surgical equipment salesman guy, and the PhD guy and asks them all if they want to start a crazy sock subscription company with him.
“You mean like a crazy company that sells sock subscriptions or just a regular company that sells subscriptions to crazy socks?” they all ask in perfect unison.
2(X)IST No-Show Sock Collection
It’s (finally) starting to get warmer out and we’ve all made the transition from boot to boat-shoe, I wanted to reach out to you and let you know about a necessary summer staple – 2(X)IST’s No-Show Sock Collection. These lightweight, durable and ultra-low profile socks are engineered to fit a man’s foot, and feature a square-cut design across the instep to ensure a fit that gives that “sockless” look.
Unlike so many no-show socks on the market currently, the 2(X)IST No-Show Sock Collection includes a non-slip rubber grip at the heel. This added feature virtually eliminates that awkward “fish, find and pull-up” routine we’ve all come to accept as a reality of a no-show sock.
With a variety of styles across three categories – Dress, Casual and Athletic – the 2(X)IST No-Show Sock Collection is the perfect way to show the perfect amount of ankle while protecting your favorite summertime shoes.
The collection is available now at www.2XIST.com and retails for $10 – $15.
