Sockracy Sock Subscription Box Review – February 2015
Sockracy is a new subscription box that sends you 30 pairs of crew, ankle or dress socks every month, quarter, or as a one-time box for $40.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Sockracy
The Cost: $40 (monthly, quarterly or one-time-purchase options available)
The Products: Your choice of crew, ankle or dress socks. (One size fits most. US shoe size 6-12. Sock size 10-13)
Ships to: US only
The socks are 80% Polyester 20% Spandex and they recommend machine wash cold, tumble dry.
A big part of Sockracy’s mission is encouraging subscribers to donate socks they are no longer using. (Socks are one of the most needed and under-donated items in homeless shelters). They let you know you can donate the socks directly or go to Give Back Box to get a free shipping label to donate your items:
(If you are looking for another easy-to-use donation program, I recommend Schedule a Pickup. We’ve used it several times and it is so easy to set up a time for your donation boxes to be picked up).
I have to admit I didn’t realize used socks were an item that were acceptable for donations. We’ll make sure to donate them moving forward.
Here is a look at the crew socks. They have a padded footbed and strip around the foot similar to the Bombas design. My husband likes them a lot and I tried them too – we’re both fans.
Sockracy also sent us a box of their ankle socks to review as well:
They get major points for packaging!
The ankle socks have a pretty low profile on the heel and the same padded footbed as the crew socks.
Verdict: We’re really impressed with the quality of these socks for the price point – 30 socks for $40 is kind of insane when some sock subscriptions are $11 a pair. (Those socks are usually branded though). If sock brands aren’t a deciding factor for you, I think this subscription is a great value, and I love that they have a focus on charity as well.
