Irish Socksciety loves all that is quirky and humorous of contemporary Ireland.
We feel that feet have lots to say, and to help them talk, we design colourful and funny socks here, in Galway, on the west coast of Ireland, in the middle of the beautiful Wild Atlantic Way.
We are best friends who dance, laugh and work together – in any order really, as it usually happens all at once. We are the kind of people who usually wear baggy, black or grey clothes but socks, socks are very special to us.
We choose them very carefully, sometimes odd socks, sometimes patterned or themed and always lots of colour. That’s why designing socks is what we are passionate about.
Our socks brighten up any occasion from boring business meeting to a wonderful wedding, lunch with family or party with mates.
We truly love our socks and are proud of their quality.
We also obsess about detail, we could tell you about how the machines we use accept only 100% combed cotton, certified Oeko-tex, and waffle on describing all the fancy 168 needle machine construction works precisely to create every sock uniquely strong and very soft, but you would have stopped reading by now.
Put it this way, remember the first time you got brand new clothes, like not hand me downs, that’s what these socks feel like. We don’t offer one size socks because otherwise your significant other would borrow/steal/lose them. We want to make sure they will fit well on every possible shape and size. From bunion to Bundoran.
Irish Socksiety’s are reinforced from heal to toe so that you can wear them with wellys or vintage brogues.
Our socks won’t slide down your foot come hell or high water! If it’s feet you have, these are the socks you’re after.
Sharing is caring are they say and even though we are a small business we do our best to support those in need. One foot at a time.
We are proud to be working with Irish Cancer Society on their Daffodil Day Socks, Father’s Day socks and are hoping that #walkingallovercancer campaign will help many.
Our socks flew to Barcelona with the inspiring Irish Paralympic Hockey Team. Everyone could learn a lot from this amazing team.
Inspired by the amazing story of Galway Autism Partnership we came up with the socks which, we believe, express that ‘what is unique is wonderful’. #thisISclass
