Socrates - The Most Clever Socks Ever

$94,279

Socrates is Sophisticated.

Socrates Sock Co. employs the first business-casual application of Kevlar. These socks are for people that hate having to replace socks because of toe holes, drooping fabric, or worn bottoms. Most people wear socks every day, all day, but continue to buy flimsy products. Break the cycle! Your socks should be as sophisticated as you are.

Meet Socrates. These socks are the most clever socks ever, and here’s why:

The Kevlar-Carbon Matrix is flexible and formfitting. Although you'll be well protected, your sock will feel light, soft, and unusually comfortable.

Socrates is Suave.

We have two styles available. They were designed to work well with both casual and business attire.  

The style above is called ATTICA.

The style above is called XENO.

Socrates is Patriotic.

America has great craftsmen; why go overseas to save a quick buck. All SocSock products are Made In America. We partnered with local small businesses for the raw materials, manufacturing, and packaging.

Socrates has Pupils.

This is where you come in. We need your help to get this product on your feet. We are looking for people who are searching for a better sock product. People who believe it makes more sense to wear socks that last, not socks you’ll replace every year. Your support will help us cover the costs of our first production run.

Our Production Plan.

We have completed a thorough, 7 month-long prototyping process with our tailoring crew to solve all complications & challenges we might face as we move into production. The next step is to place the order for materials and start the first production run of our socks!

  • Rejoice the successful end of our Kickstarter campaign by running in circles with only our socks on...suavely of course.
  • Wait 20 days for funds to clear
  • Week 1: Order Materials, Schedule production, Order packaging
  • Week 2-4: Sock production
  • Week 4: Quality Assurance check on each sock
  • Week 5: Package socks for shipment
  • Send Off! We expect to start shipping in November

Who We Are. 

Founder
Founder

Socrates Sock Co. was conceptualized in Milan, Italy. This guy (see above) was an American military member, working with the Italian government, when he was inspired by some declassified military technology & Milan’s remarkable fashion scene simultaneously. He enlisted the help of a few business minds, a few fashion minds, and then... Socrates was born! Follow us on twitter @SocSock or visit us at www.SocSock.com

Risks and challenges

As mentioned above, all of the necessary precautions have been taken to assure a smooth production transition. Some risks include material shortage, labor shortage, or shipment issues. Socrates Sock Co. has worked hard to make sure none of these potential threats become real. Thank you for your time and consideration!
