The Knitty Gritty

A whole day dedicated to avocados.

A whole day dedicated to avocados.

July 31st - National Avocado Day

If you're from California like us, you'll know how passionate we are about the avocado. In fact, we were curious what social media had to say, and it seems as though (12,465,871) people are obsessed all around the world, just for the #avocado alone! It's no surprise that someone over here on the West Coast created a dedicated day to the yummy green fruit. It's also no surprise that we created a dedicated collection of socks to the yummy green fruit.

This year we went BIG. Take a seat, and browse our Socksmith Avocado Snack Menu. You are welcome - Happy National Avocado Day!
