Here’s the information that came inside the Foot Steps envelope. I always like when subscriptions have a charitable aspect to them.

Grey, Black, and White Patterned Crew Socks

This month’s socks feature a cool angular print in a silvery gray hue. It definitely is a print, too, so, unfortunately, it splits a bit as you stretch the fibers of the socks. The black stripes and details provide a nice contrast—these definitely feel like they’d pair well with a sleek pair of modern, minimalist sneakers. They’re made mostly from nylon, with a pinch of cotton, elastic, and spandex. They’re stiffer, though still soft, so they feel like they’re really hugging your foot.

Verdict: These socks felt a good deal more dad-like than the pairs I’ve seen in other sock subscriptions (which often try to be super flashy and trendy), but they were super fun and really nice quality. They’re definitely sturdy and will probably last longer than a thinner style with toes and heels that might wear down after a couple of wears and washes. $12.99 is more than I’d typically pay for a pair of socks, but given the charitable aspect of the subscription, I don’t mind quite as much.

What do you think of the August 2017 Foot Steps pack?

  1. $13? For a pair of socks? Singluar? You’re better off donating $7-$8 to a shelter directly, or just going to target or Ross and buying a 3-pack to donate to a shelter. Nice idea, but too pricey, even with the charitable aspect.
