We aren't one-size-fits-all, and neither are our socks.

Update: Introducing the Stretch Goal

The Problem:

Not every foot is the same.  Most brands on the market offer a "one size fits all" product.  To get a perfectly fitting sock, a customer must fall right in the middle of the size range.  Unfortunately for everyone else, that means wearing socks that are too loose and bunch up or socks 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 neglected our big footed friends.  In fact, most men with larger than average feet, many over 6'1", don't have socks that truly fit.  Customers asked, we did the research and decided to add a fourth size:

     XL:  Women's shoe size 15+; Men's shoe size 13+

Now there's truly something for everyone: 


We're Changing the Game.  Join Us!

There's a reason why most sock companies only make 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 be the same?

We want to end the "one size fits all" mentality!  We care a lot about socks and we think that EVERYONE deserves to look and feel great in them.  We want to make X-Large socks.  We've made prototypes, but it's quite an endeavor to go into production, because the minimum order on high quality socks is large.

We spent 2 years perfecting socks and our plan is to manufacture 15 new styles.  To make this more attainable, we will manufacture all new styles in Regular, Large, Knee-High and X-Large.

Our Story:

Eye-Catching Designs, Engineered for Your Feet.

Our team is passionate about design and committed to creating products for those who are unafraid to stand out.  Retail stores deliver either boring styles or low-quality assortments.  And so the idea for a new kind of sock was born.

High Quality:

Experience that Matters

Though Argoz is relatively new to the sock game, we draw from 18 years of design experience and research.  We have relationships with the best manufacturers around the globe, who produce socks that retail for double or triple our price.  By managing every aspect of our business in-house, we're able to deliver a sock fit for the high quality retail market, but at a fraction of the price.

What am I Getting in Each Sock?

Quality, Style, Affordability and the Perfect Fit

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.

Why did we Reduce our Goal?

After our initial launch, we received positive press and increased brand exposure.  Although it didn't translate into enough backers the first time around, it did lead us to a committed investor.  The deal is contingent upon us reaching the our goal for the funds to be made available.  We're close to making perfect fitting socks a reality and with your help, we can make it happen!

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, Knee-High or X-Large socks, you will be the first to purchase these brand new styles.  Every pair purchased of any size brings us closer to our minimum and making X-Large socks a reality.

Risks and challenges

We have been in the sock game for a few years now. Through all of the 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
