Society Socks Men's Review November 2020
Society Socks always comes with a card. It usually offers a discount or tells subscribers about a cause the company is supporting. However, this month it was just telling you to shop early for the holidays. Boring.
As for the socks, each month, subscribers receive two pairs of socks each featuring Society Socks' own designs. Usually, one pair will have a quirkier design and the other will be more abstract. All Society Socks pairs are made with a cotton, nylon, and spandex blend. There's no extra cushioning on the sole, so they're more like formal socks in that regard. The socks come up around 2/3 to my knee. I am 5'9".
Zebra Socks, Estimated Value $12.00 (based on similar socks)
Last month, Society Socks produced Giraffe socks that coincided with a donation to raise awareness for the animal. This month, we have zebras without a cause. Despite there being no deeper meaning that I am aware of, the socks are some of the best I've received. The zebra's stripes are red and light blue on a dark blue sock. The same light blue in the animal is found on the accents at the top, toe, and heel. I enjoy the regal look of these socks and the details that blend in but beg a closer look. I wouldn't mind seeing a small run of animal socks from this subscription, especially if there is a cause behind it.
Pink Stripe Socks, Estimated Value $12.00 (based on similar socks)
While not personally my style, these warm socks will have many fans. Thick stripes of pink and dark pink alternate with thinner stripes of blue and tangerine. The same blue from the stripes is found on the accents. These are cute and kid-like, fun and cozy. I'll admit that I am unlikely to wear mine, but I always appreciate Society Socks thinking of all the personalities of their subscribers.
Verdict: While I really liked the zebra socks, I'll say this month from Society Socks was not my favorite. That is the risk with a subscription like this. If you don't like one of the pairs, that's half the cost right there. However, there's probably a good chance you know someone who would appreciate a fun pair of socks. Heck, save the pairs you don't like for Christmas gifts. Overall, I have been happy with Society Socks and always look forward to what they have cooked up for each month. Also, I've said it before, I much prefer it when they support a cause – any worthwhile cause. Perhaps that is not always possible, but they've laid the foundation of being a socially conscience brand. So it's a bummer any month they ask you to shop early or post photos to social media for them. I can't blame them for drumming up business, but maybe they could do both?
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? All deliveries vary, so you are not guaranteed the same socks as what you see here.
ACTIVE DEAL: $10 off
Value Breakdown: These two pairs of socks cost $19 with FREE shipping, meaning each pair is about $9.50. Most, if not all, of the socks that subscribers receive, can be purchased directly from Society Socks. Most are $12, but some are on sale for $9. However, there IS shipping if you do it this way. I did a quick check for Pennsylvania and it was 3 extra dollars. So you're saving $8 by having the subscription, which is a decent saving. A subscription like this, in my opinion, is for people who were going to buy socks like this anyway. You have it delivered to your door, it's a little surprise, and you save some money. Otherwise, if you're concerned about getting socks you don't like, it may be best for you to purchase only the pairs you like directly from their site. You'll just have to pay a little more.
