OK, there is this panda. He makes socks. He lives in Venice, CA. His socks are colorful, fun and fashionable and made by a manufacturer in Peru. He also donates socks...lots of 'em...to those in need. Sock Panda has socks for men, women, kids and gifts. For adult socks, the price is $19 per month for 2 pairs or $12 per month for 1 pair. Kids' socks are 2 pairs for $11 per month. You can send a gift box of 6 socks for an adult for $60 or $50 for a kid.
When signing up for a Sock Panda subscription, you can indicate whether your style is "Bold" (bright colors and fun graphics), "Cool" (wear them with pride in just about any office) or "Both". I can't remember which option I chose but judging from the socks I received it must have been "Bold". (Thanks to the proliferation of sock subscriptions, I am no longer shy when it comes to socks!) My first package arrived very quickly, about a week after I ordered.
There were two pairs of what I'd call quite bold and colorful socks inside, both tagged with Sock Panda labels. I did not know that pandas could write but there is was a hand written thank you note included. I do like a well mannered panda!
The first pair of socks has a wild pattern of stripes in chartreuse (not yellow as it looks), orange and black with green cuff, toe and heel accents. Little panda faces are near the top of each sock and "sock panda" is written in orange across the toes. These nice, stretchy comfortable socks are made of 85% Peruvian cotton, 10% nylon and 5% spandex.
I can't say I've ever owned any St. Patrick's Day themed socks before but thanks to Sock Panda, I do now! These are green (of course) with leprechauns sliding down rainbows into pots of gold. (The photo really doesn't do these justice.) For once, I'll have exactly the right touch of green to wear on St. Pat's Day!
I'm very pleased with my first Sock Panda socks. They are well made and comfortable. They are colorful and fun and add some life to my tired old sock drawer. It will be fun to see how Sock Panda celebrates future holidays. There are lots of sock subscription competitors out there but I don't think any of them send holiday specific socks.
