My April 2020 Sock Panda Review
When you join Sock Panda, you can choose between one or two pairs of socks a month. You also can choose between “wild & crazy,” “patterns & prints,” or one of each. I chose to receive "wild & crazy" because I love wearing loud and fun socks to school with my black dress pants!
So I am a bit confused...I received these socks March 26, which was almost 10 days after St. Patrick's Day, and for the April box? Besides the fact that these adorable shamrock socks came a month late, they are cute, but probably won't be worn for 11 months. This pair of socks featured the "Sock Panda" and "Give Back" logo, and featured a white background with cute four-leafed clovers, mostly green, but with a peach one sprinkled in there once in a while as well. They also featured the same peach color on the toe and heel for a nice contrast. These socks are extremely comfortable and fit well, even on my size 10 foot. And I must admit, even though they give off a St. Patrick's Day vibe I found the cheery colors to brighten up day 11 of being homebound.
This Little Piggy Socks
I feel our socks usually are based on a common theme each month, but if that's true, I absolutely do not see the link between these two pairs! These tall black socks feature little piglets wearing hats while sitting in teacups! These certainly win the crazy award! Unlike the shamrock socks, these socks are not adorned with the usual logos, and seem to be a lot stretchier than the other pair. I also noticed they seem to be slightly thinner too. I took a photo of the inside of the sock, because when on my feet you can see the inner grey color when they stretch which is a little interesting. I collect teacups, so the theme of these brought a smile to my face! I can't wait for school to start back up so I can rock these with my dress pants!
Verdict: Sock Panda sure was interesting this month! Shying away from the typical coordination of socks, we received two completely different pairs. I was a little disappointed about receiving the shamrock socks after St. Patrick's Day, as they were really cute and I could have worn them leading up to the holiday had they come earlier! The pig socks were really cute, and are something I would totally wear, so I was excited for them. I wonder what will come next month? Do you think they are a month behind and we will receive April umbrellas?
