Our Story

Boldfoot was started to help spark a movement and bring apparel manufacturing back to the U.S. Currently, just 3% of all apparel sold in America was actually made on U.S. soil, and that's just not right. Together, let's prove that American-made stands for something. And let's start from the ground up, with awesome socks made right here in the U.S. of A.

Grown Here. Sewn Here.

These (mid-calf) socks are exceptionally comfortable. Just a tad thicker than the typical dress sock, they're made from:

73% American Supima Cotton (for comfort / great feel)

25% Nylon (for durability)

2% Spandex (for stretch). 

This brand was grown here in America and the socks are sewn just outside Philadelphia, PA. We take serious pride in where we come from.

 Free Sock Insurance

We believe in the quality of our socks, but we recognize nothing is foolproof. For each pair purchased, Boldfoot offers a replacement pair within 6 months should they rip, tear or develop holes. No questions asked. Just shoot us an email, and we'll take care of the rest.

Awesome socks @ a Fair Price

We spent countless hours obsessing over the designs to offer great colors and patterns, abundant variety, and uniqueness that you can be proud to wear. And we don't charge $20+ per pair like many other brands on the market. Consider it style your wallet can actually afford.

Giving Back to our Military Heroes

No business should exist purely for profit. With Boldfoot, you'll get great socks and do some good in the process. For each pair purchased, we'll donate $1 to help veterans in need find jobs, housing, improved health and more. None of us would be here without the sacrifice of our military heroes, and this is one small way we can offer to repay them.

Let's join together and start the American-made movement from the ground up.

Thanks for your support,

Brad

Risks and challenges

We've spent months working with our partners to avoid potential risks in delivering Boldfoot Socks to our supporters. However, if challenges arise, we will be 100% honest and transparent with our community. Here is our timeline along with the relevant risks & challenges inherent to our project.

Timeline:
Completion of Kickstarter
Wait up to 20 days for funds to clear
Week 1: Backer survey (choose designs, provide mailing address, etc)
Weeks 2-5: Production
Weeks 6-7: Freight
Week 8: Final packaging and fulfillment

Production - We’ve been in constant contact with the manufacturer over the past few months perfecting samples. They are anticipating our full production order post-Kickstarter and should have no problem with the volume.

Timing - We’ve set a reasonable production and fulfillment schedule, but there are inherent risks of delay in the process. We will over-communicate with our manufacturer and our backers to ensure transparency and timeliness.

FAQ

  • Our socks are designed to be one size fits most. They are plated with lycra (for extra stretch), and fit both Men (US sizes 8-13) and Women (US sizes 5-10).

    Last updated:
  • We will send out a survey after our Kickstarter campaign ends asking you to choose your desired patterns and colors.

    Last updated:
  • YES! Due to popular demand, we have decided that we will ship to our Canadian neighbors to the north. If you fall into this category, please mark the "I'm in the U.S." button during checkout and add $10 to your pledge. We will collect your final shipping info at the end of the campaign.

    Last updated:
  • Thanks to popular demand, we will, in fact, offer international shipping! We've specifically developed INTERNATIONAL FIVE PAIR and INTERNATIONAL TEN PAIR pledge levels (these levels offer the best bang for the buck in terms of shipping). Please note that there may be additional import fees or duties on your end that we are unable to cover. These vary by country.
