Legendary lady love: Show your girl power with our inspiring women's empowerment socks

We here at Socksmith want our “Women’s Empowerment” socks to be just like the icons we’ve put on them: strong and capable of lasting a very long time. 


We’re beyond excited to share this collection of female all-stars who have touched us in oh so many ways. From artists like Frida Kahlo, Ella Fitzerald, and Laurel Burch to political leaders such as Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Michelle Obama, and Maya Angelou, we’ve chosen gals who’ve rocked our world with their passion, talent, and willingness to uplift others.  


If you’re looking for socks that make you feel as good on the inside as they do the outside, you’ve come to the right place. Behold, our wonderful “Women’s Empowerment” socks. 




We so, so wish Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was around to see us honor her with these socks, but unfortunately we lost her earlier this year. The cultural and feminist icon and champion of gender equality will remain the rare historical figure capable of shaping both our past and our future. 


As we slip on the socks that bear her image, we’re reminded of her inspiring words of wisdom: 


"Be your own person. Be independent."


R.I.P., RBG.




Capable of speaking six languages, poet and civil rights icon Maya Angelou was the type of artist who understood exactly what it takes to positively impact others: 


“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” 


Thank you, Maya, for how you’ve always made us feel. 




We’re convinced that strength is, and always has been, a female thing. 


If you’re the type of woman who wants to prove your “We can do it” approach to life, these Rosie the Riveter socks are the perfect fit. 




This is one of twelve Frida Kahlo socks we’ve designed. We absolutely love and respect the mother of all innovative painters, and we always will. 


The gal really was as kick-ass as everyone says.  






That’s how many Laurel Burch socks we’ve designed. 


If that doesn’t tell you how much we admire this immensely creative artist, nothing will. 


Laurel left us much too soon, but we can carry on her legacy by proudly wearing these socks that prove just how much of an original she really was. 




Okay. We admit it. We’ve always been a bit jealous of the amazing relationship enjoyed by Michelle Obama and her significant other. They are pretty much the most perfect couple in the world. Ever. 


Not only that, but from pushing kids to improve their diet to promoting women’s rights across the globe, Michelle kicked so much butt as the First Lady. 


But it’s her grace and oh-so-cool demeanor you’ll think of when you roll on these socks.




Her superior skill as a jazz singer is just one reason why we adore Ella Fitzgerald. 


The Queen of Jazz received thirteen Grammy awards and sold more than 40 million albums during her career, but it’s her generous nature that really toots our horn. 


Ella routinely made so many sizable donations to child welfare charities that in 1993 the Ella Fitzgerald Charitable Foundation was created to help at-risk and disadvantaged members of our communities.


One of Ella’s most recognized quotes comes to mind each time we roll on these socks: 


"Just don't give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don't think you can go wrong."


Closing thoughts


There’s no better time than right now to show off your girl power. And with our “Women’s Empowerment” socks, it’s so ridiculously easy to put your favorite female icons on full blast. 


You go, girl, and give these go girls the love they deserve!
