About Sock Invaders?
We created Sock Invaders to try to put more fun and pop culture into designer socks. We figured it should be possible to have the bold designs and colours of expensive designer socks, but also have more than simply lines and dots. Why not patterns or characters that give us fond memories and make us smile?
We also wanted to offer $10-20 high quality, comfortable and durable socks at a much lower price by keeping our team small and using international fulfillment close to production. It wasn't easy, but that was our challenge and after a year of redesigns and making samples, we finally did it! And we hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
What size are the socks?
We now have 9 designs available in 2 sizes - Medium and Large.
We also have some designs available in a small size and knee length.
Simply put: Medium fits most women and some men. Large fits most men and some women too. Due to the new Medium size being added, we'll be slightly increasing our current size, and adding a new, smaller size. As such, we don't have the exact measurements available yet. But using the chart below, we expect the following sizes to fit these size feet:
Small: EU 35 - 40
Medium: EU 37 - 43
Large: EU 42 - 48
About the Team
We are two best friends working on this who first met at age 11 at secondary school and have been good friends ever since. Jonathan has been working on socks for about 5 years now, starting out with a kids character socks brand. He also teaches kids English in Asia and is a bit of a hardcore gamer and some would say the main driving force behind Sock Invaders. Andre lives in London and joined the project in 2017, helping to get Sock Invaders off the ground. He pretty much only plays Fifa and Call of Duty, but we're working on changing that!
What next for Sock Invaders?
Well, this is only the very beginning. Our long term goal is to work with indie video game developers and artists and collaborate on sock designs inspired by their work. Until then, we have a number of ideas for the next range and hope to become an indie sock company with a passionate customer base who look forward to seeing what designs we come up with next. We also look forward to making a difference in the lives of the less fortunate through much needed sock donations to local charities.
Sock Invaders are ready and waiting to go into production. With your help we can make our first production run. Please back our Kickstarter project and in return you'll be among the first and only people in the world to wear these funky socks we designed.

Risks and challenges
The main risks are delays to the production or delivery. But the factory we are working with is old and well established and we have confidence in their ability to deliver on time. We also have great faith on the shipping company. Having received the samples from the factory on time and to a good standard, we are confident we can deliver within budget and on time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
