ARGOZ: Awesome Socks that Actually Fit (Canceled)
Premium socks designed in San Francisco. We care about style and detail, and we think you might too.
Argoz: The Perfect Fitting Socks -- RELAUNCH
Our first attempt at a Kickstarter project is coming to an unsuccessful close, but this is not the end of the road for socks that actually fit! With all of the helpful feedback we received and what we've now learned about how to optimize Kickstarter, we are going to come back with a stronger campaign. We are more determined than ever to rid the world of ankle fashion ignorance for adults of all sizes, and together we can make it happen!
We will cancel this project today and relaunch in a few short weeks with a stronger and more streamlined campaign. Since the launch, positive press and increased brand exposure has led to a committed investor. This week we negotiated a deal that will fund a portion of our project, but it is contingent upon funding the balance ourselves. We are very excited about the new opportunity since it brings us closer to making the XL sock a reality AND it allows us to reduce our Kickstarter goal.
If you are a current backer, THANK YOU! Please stay tuned for updates via email. If you are new to the campaign, we'd love to have your support.
To make sure you receive updates, please do not cancel your pledge. Kickstarter will not charge you for the pledge when we cancel this campaign. If you have already cancelled, check back often for updates on the relaunch.
The relaunch will include a limited number of deeply discounted "SUPER EARLY BIRD" rewards. These are sure to go FAST!
To be the first to hear about our relaunch when it goes live, you can also visit us at www.havegreatsocks.com.
You're not one-size-fits-all, and neither are our socks: Regular, Large, Knee-high and X-Large!
Socks don't fit:
We spent 2 years perfecting socks. When you shop for socks, you'll find that socks are often "one size fits all"... but they don't (fit all). In fact, most men over 6'1" don't have socks that fit their feet.
We want to make X-Large socks. We've made prototypes, but it's quite an endeavor to go into production. No manufacturer we've met has done it. As a result, their minimum order, on high quality socks, is large. We plan to manufacture 15 new styles. To make this task more attainable, we will manufacture those new styles in X-Large and Regular and Large. Don't let our big-footed friends suffer anymore...
Eye-Catching Designs. Designed for Your Feet.
Bringing a fresh eye to anklewear, our team is passionate about design and committed to creative products for those unafraid to stand out. Retail stores delivered either boring styles or low-quality offerings. And so the idea for a new kind of sock was born...
Not every foot is the same. And for high-quality socks, all you’re likely to find is “one size fits all.” For some people, that can mean having to wear socks that bunch up or ones that are too tight and prone to holes.
We started with three sizes:
Regular: Women’s shoe size 5–9.5, Men’s shoe size 3—7.5
Regular Knee-High: Women's shoe size 5-11, Men's shoe size 3-9
Large: Women’s shoe size 10-14.5; Men’s shoe size 8-12.5
After listening to our customers, we realized we were neglecting some of you, those 6’1" or taller with feet to match. We care a lot about socks, and we think everyone should be allowed to look and feel great in them. So, we're adding a fourth size:
XL: Women's shoe size 15+; Men's shoe size 13+
So now there's truly something for everyone:
Experience that Matters
Though Argoz is new to the sock game, we draw from 18 years of design experience and research. We have relationships with the best manufacturers in the world. We will be using the same manufacturers who produce socks that you pay two or three times more for in stores. By managing every aspect of our business in-house, we’re able to deliver a sock that is as high quality as anything high-end retail stores offer, but at a fraction of the price.
We're changing the game. Join Us!
There's a reason why most sock companies make only one size. Manufacturing requires a commitment to minimums that most retailers can't or aren't willing to meet. But we will. We buy clothes in sizes designed for our bodies, so why shouldn't our socks, too?
What am I getting in each sock?
80% combed cotton, 17% Nylon, 3% spandex
Each pair of Argoz socks has been inspected five times to ensure that the quality is up to our standards of excellence.

.... and a couple awesome tote bags.
What if I don’t have XL feet?
You can support your big-footed friends and still score socks for yourself. Whether you order Regular, Large or X-Large socks, you will be the first to purchase these brand new styles. Every pair purchased of any size bring us closer to our minimum and making X-Large socks a reality.
Risks and challenges
We are not new to the sock game. Through all of our experience, we have planned for any unexpected time insecurities that we may encounter
Still, we know that experience doesn't eliminate all risks going forward.
Barring any natural disasters, we plan to deliver all rewards by the expected dates, if not sooner.
Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions or concerns.
With love and socks,
Dan Soha, Maura Pauze, Tom Yee, & Erin Regan
