ORDER AND DELIVERY

Is it possible to amend my address or order after it has been placed?

Our team is working very hard to dispatch your orders as soon as possible and amending your order is a  bit of a difficulty. However we are here for you so if you get in touch with us via email info@irishsocksciety.ie within the first 30 minutes since the purchase we will do our best to help you. Please title your email – ORDER AMENDMENT + Name + Order number

Another good news is that if you bought a subscription you can change the address details every month until the 30th day of the month. If you change houses but won’t update the address until the 30th day of the month your pair of socks will fly to the address picked while purchasing the subscription.

How long does the delivery take?

All orders are shipped with AnPost (standard post) from our warehouse in Galway City. The delivery time depends on the destination country (which varies from 5-15 working days if shipped outside Ireland). If your order is destined for the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland it should be delivered within 3 working days.

Please keep in mind that all times are estimates.

Please note that during final sales and holiday seasons (November/December/ St. Patrick’s Day / Bank Holidays) delivery times can be longer than usual and it’s recommended to keep track with AnPost delivery estimate times for those periods.

How much do you charge for shipping?

Good news is when you buy products with a value over €30 you’ll get your products shipped for free (applies to individual products, not subscriptions). If your order is less than €30, a total shipping charge of €2.1 will be added to your order (if delivered in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland).

The delivery cost of  € 4.25 applies to the rest of the world.

Orders to countries within the EU are subject to VAT which is included in the price. Orders to countries outside the EU may be subject to VAT, import duties and/or taxes, which are levied once your package reaches your country. We ship your package according to Incoterm Delivered Duty Unpaid (DDU), which means we do not collect VAT, duties and/or taxes on orders to countries outside the USA & EU and we cannot predict what your particular charges may be, you have to contact your local customs office for more information.

Where do you ship your products?

We ship pretty much everywhere in the world mostly to Ireland, UK, UE, US, New Zealand, Australia.

When do you dispatch orders?

We dispatch ordered items every working day at 3pm.

If you purchased a subscription, the first pair is usually send within the first 48 hours ( if it’s a domestic order it should be delivered within 3 working days; rest of the world 5-15 working days). Every next pair is dispatched on the 14th or 15th day of the next following month (please note that this does not include Personalised Subscription).

SOCK’S LIFE

How should I look after my socks?

We recommend to start with cutting the label with scissors rather than ripping it off as it may cause damage.

We make sure our socks meet the highest standards but your care will surely help them live a longer and happier life.

Please turn them inside out and wash at temperature of of 30°C/86°F.

Bleaching or ironing is socks least favourite thing so please try to avoid it.

Even though our socks are durable, tumble drying is not highly recommended.

Once washed and dried wear them proud.

Which size should I pick?

Our socks are unisex and we are aiming for as universal sizes as possible.

For example, if your shoe size is 7, our socks compartment of 36-40 will be perfect as much as if you are size 3.

The socks come in two sizes 3-7 (36-40) and 8-12 (41-46). Visit size guidelines here.

What are your socks made of?

Our socks in 80% are made of high standard combed cotton.

To make sure each pair is perfect, the machines we use (Italian ones ulala!) accept only 100% combed cotton, certified Oeko-tex. The 168 needle machine construction works precisely to create every sock uniquely strong and very soft. All of our socks have seamless finish for the best possible comfort. They are made of 80% cotton,  17% polyamide, 3% elastane.
