Sole- socks is a simple solution to a common annoyance / problem. In today's ever evolving fashion and style trends, more and more people are going sockless. It's become a very popular look  for both men and woman. In addition, there are others who just don't like socks, whether it be for convenient or laziness, they don't want to wear socks. There are a couple big problems that everyone who is trying to pull off the sockless look has to deal with. The first is, if you choose to wear socks, you have to find super small thin socks that don't go above the shoe line. These socks are typically tight, uncomfortable and slip off the heel throughout the day. The other option is to fold down larger socks and deal with bunching and unevenness on your foot. The last option is just to choose not to wear socks. This seems like the most logical right? But then you run into the issue of having sweaty, smelly feet  trapped in your shoes and no matter how many times you try to air them out, or even wash them, the smell won't go away. I can't tell you how many pairs of shoes I have had to throw away from rancid, funky smells from not wearing socks.  

 Sole- Sock are specifically designed with those problems in mind. We started with a plush terry cloth top, which absorbs the moisture, odor, and all the other funky things that come from your feet throughout the day. This 100% cotton Terry cloth has been specially designed to be thick with long loops in order to be breatheable enough to let air through to the foot while the fibers are designed in a way to absorb and wick away moisture in your shoe. The terry cloth is attached with a durable cotton outer layer of fabric and attached with a Bosnian embroidered stitch around the entire outer edge of the sole. The zig zag looking stitch insures durability and quality during the length of the product's life. Sole-Socks were designed to take the wear and tear that occurs each day on your feet. The final component of the design is the base, this is designed in such a way to allow the sole to grip the inside of your shoe and prevent slipping. These same fiber that grip and stabilize the Sole-Sock, are designed in such a way to allow air to flow from underneath your foot. This allows your foot to breathe, cools it down and reduces sweat and odor. Additionally, the base layer is perforated to allow the foot to breathe from the bottom. This bottom layer also acts as a padding and support. Sole-Socks are designed in a way to offer a little more cushion and comfort on the bottom of your foot. At the same time we designed it in a way to make sure it wasn't too bulky to cause the shoe too become tight and uncomfortable. These were designed to be treated like a pair of socks. The newest addition to the sole sock original is the Polyester toe cap. Its design with a very minimal seem to insure comfort and not cause an annoying irritation across the top of your foot. We use a durable polyester toe cap to help offer protection and comfort while allowing airflow and maximum breath-ability.  

Both styles of Sole Socks work for many different shoes depending on what you prefer and what your needs are. Depending on the type of shoe and your preference both sole-sock original and sole-sock 2.0 has you covered.

 Step One: Find out what shoe size you wear. The easiest way to do this would be going to your closet and looking at your shoes. Once you know this, order that size of Sole-sock or sole-sock 2.0.  Step Two: Once you receive your sole-sock in the mail simply place the left and right foot beds into your chosen pair of shoes. (Should I remove the existing sole? it all depends on your preference. Most people lay the Sole-sock on top of the existing sole due to the fact these are designed as sock and not sole replacements.) Step Three: Put on your shoes and go about your day. Step Four: At the end of the day simply remove your custom pair of Sole-Socks and throw them in the washing machine if need or use them again the next day.  It's as simple as these 4 steps, treat them like you would a normal pair of socks. 

As you know going sockless is not as easy as it should be. Having to deal with super small baby socks, socks with holes, rolling down socks to get the look but dealing with bunching. You could always go no socks at all but the aftermath is unbearable.

SIZING: You may be asking how do I know what size Sole-Socks works best for me? We work on a US shoe size system, in both Men's and Woman's. We recommend you purchase the size of sole-sock that you would for shoes size. Sole-Socks are offered in whole sizes only, if you are a half size no worries we got you covered. Sole-Socks are designed to fit full and half size shoe sizes. As a rule of thumb, for those individuals who wear a half size we recommend going down to the nearest whole size. For example if you are a size 9.5 you would order a size 9 Sole-Sock. See chart below for to reference what size will work best for you. below.

Risks and challenges

One of the biggest challenges I think we will face is educating people that there are other options available besides socks. Getting customers to understand how the sole socks work and that they actually do work.

Educating customers will be a challenge but the better photos and videos with more details we hope to overcome the lack of a current sockless options currently offered.
