About this project
I'm here to launch the Bizcaz socks line. I got so tired of going into stores and seeing the same old bland colors of socks. I wanted something with a little color, something with a little life, but I found it very hard to find a good pair like what I was looking for. I wanted a pair of socks that would cross the business-casual line, a pair of socks that you could wear whether you were headed into the office or just going out to a movie. So I decided to do something about it.
So what makes Bizcaz socks so unique??
Bizcaz socks are the first and only business casual socks in the market that are reversible. You are getting 2 socks in 1 in every pair of Bizcaz socks. The socks are made with an extra interior layer, that acts as a barrier, so the colors don't bleed into each other. You can wear the same pair of socks 2 days in a row and no one would know the difference.
Wow, 2 socks in 1! Anything else that makes them stand out??
Bizcaz socks are Anti-stink. Sweat is the biggest cause of foot odor. Your feet have over 250,000 sweat glands, so your feet are doing a lot of sweating on any given day and most sock companies use fabrics that induce sweating. This leads to not only stinky, smelly socks, but also the bacteria that comes with the odor.
Silver has been proven to kill odor causing baceteria like nothing else can.Active wear companies have begun to design their work out gear with this fact in mind, but we are the first and only sock line that has designed an anti-stink sock.
Bizcaz socks are made with a high quality wool/nylon blend. We use a soft merino wool that is not itchy and will wick away moisture from your feet which will help eliminate blisters.Merino wool has unmatched insulating properties and keeps feet warm in cold weather and cool in hot temperatures. Every pair has silver infused in the material to eliminate odor and odor causing bacteria.
Lastly, Bizcaz socks are made right here in the United States. We are one of the only sock companies to have our socks manufactured right here in the US.
Our sock line currently consist of 8 different options, as you see in the images below. We are currently working on expanding the line and adding new options for our Spring 2013 line. Every pair is offered in both mens and womens sizing.

Our manufacturer has been in the socks and clothing business for over 30 years. They are located in the United States (California).Mass production will not be a problem for them. It will take them 2-3 weeks after the payment has been received to produce all the orders and get them shipped. All pledge gifts will arrive in January.
We are currently working on new designs and color combinations and will be rolling out new colors and designs in our Spring 2013 line.
Risks and challenges
This project has taken me a lot of time and hours to get to this point. Finding a manufacturer that could not only design the socks to be infused with silver, but also to be reversible was very difficult. After about a year of working on prototypes, we developed a product that was up to my very high standards. The hard part is behind us, now we just need the funds to bring these socks into production.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
