Back to School 2021: A School Day in Socks

Back to School 2021: A School Day in Socks

We write to you with that same anxiety as when you read this title. Our kids are going back to school after what seemed like a wild dream of a year (going back to school, by the way, in a somewhat normal fashion?)

Our kids are pumped though (well, some of them), and we should be too, some normalcy sounds nice. We would like to you be able to show off some cool socks and not feel guilty about not addressing a global situation. It would feel nice to say, “hey we designed these hipster kitten socks for no reason other than they're cute,” and leave it at that. So with here goes:

Our 2021 Back to School Sock List (Unofficially, the Sock Syllabus)

We went subject by subject, extracurricular by extracurricular for students to pick out fancy footwear for their school year. Consider it a sock charcuterie board, or as an elementary student would say, “le fancy lunchable.”

For the Scientists

And for Those Field Trips to the Zoo

We have a soft spot for animals on socks, maybe it is because the animals do all the work in making the designs cute. Just look at one of our most popular designs this year:

A Note to All Those Working in Schools

Good luck and good learning to all of you heading back to school. Thank you to the teachers, cafeteria staff, custodians, and administrations who are going back with them. We appreciate your business throughout this time, and we hope to keep bringing in sock designs you absolutely love.

A Note to All Students 

As you all pull up to school sporting any one of our pairs, know that you can get along with anyone who says they like your socks. It is friend-making 101: the same taste in socks makes for a great friendship.
