Untold Rebel socks: engineered comfort meets style

$30,525

No two people that are exactly the same. Each one of us has something unique that defines why we are who we are. Untold Rebels are designed for mavericks and creatives alike, for people who aren’t afraid to stand apart from the crowd.  

But we didn't just stop at design. It took two years of research and development to perfect the following features of Untold Rebel socks. Using only the finest materials and latest fabric tech, we present to you: the world's most comfortable socks!

1 set = 2 pairs of mix and mismatch socks! Switch it up and wear it however you like!

Whether you’re a hip trendsetter or just can’t ever find a matching pair of socks, with Untold Rebel you won’t know which one’s which. All our socks are in mix and mismatch sets of 4 singles (2 pairs). Even if the dryer eats a sock, you'll still have 3 to spare! So depending on your mood or whichever ones you happen to find in the morning, you’ll be ready to rock your day in comfort and style. 

Inspired by our passion for adventure and travel, this season's designs embrace what we love the most. From epic Himalayan adventures to Berlin's techno scene, join us as we take a walk on the vibrant side!

Fun fact! Multiple studies have shown that people who wear vibrant and funky socks are more cutting edge and successful. Just another reason to rock your Untold Rebels loud and proud!

We give back 10% of net profits to causes that inspire our designs. We like to think of our socks as an artistic take on social issues we care about. We believe that art and design holds a special ability to draw attention and raise awareness. Our inspiration drives our aesthetic and defines who we are. We are rebels with a cause. 

For 2019, we will be supporting various student field trips through Donor’s Choose, a crowdfunding platform for public school teachers to request much needed materials and experiences for their students. This nonprofit has been given Charity Navigator’s highest rating every year since 2015. With 95% of donation money going directly to classroom projects, you’ll know your dollar is making a real difference. Every time we support a project, we’ll post photos and thank you letters from teachers and students. Now who doesn’t love a good ol' fashion thank you note! We’ll even share how each donation dollar was spent. Support a classroom. Build a future. It all begins here. Sounds like a cool organization right? Learn more about Donor’s Choose.

Deep in the fertile valleys of central Taiwan is the charming little town of Shetou, home of a long standing hosiery industry. Guava fields and rice patties dot the rural landscape as sock knitting machines hum to the tune of the sleepy township. It’s here that we’ve partnered with a family run business with over 30 years of sock making experience. Believe us when we say the Yeh family knows everything there is to know about socks! All they do is socks and after three decades, they do it damn well.    

In order to bring you the highest quality product, we utilize the latest technologies in hosiery manufacturing and fabric tech. After nearly two years of research and development with countless rounds of designs and prototypes, we’re confident you’ll love not only our designs, but also the superior quality of our socks as well. Each set of socks will equal durable comfort for years to come!

The Yeh family makes your socks!

Hi there! We're KK and Wen, the original rebels of Untold Rebel. Like many good stories, ours starts with daytime drinking, a vague idea and one hell of a high five. But let’s rewind a bit. We use to be neighbors and bonded over the love of our home country, Taiwan. After all, there’s so much to love about our tiny tropical island. The people, the food (oh god the food!) the night markets and the socks. That’s right, SOCKS. 

Realizing that Taiwan is a leading manufacturer of high-quality performance socks but seeing they were void of fun designs, our light bulb moment went off. After all, KK is a designer and Wen is an entrepreneur. Together, we're the perfect team to bring you the world’s funkiest and most comfortable socks with a cause. 

Risks and challenges

We have spent the last two years in research and development mode and have the final working prototype of our designs in hand. As soon as our crowdfunding is complete, we will be able to jump straight into production mode. We have built a strong working relationship with our partner factory in Taiwan in the last two years and know it’s an integral part of a successful manufacturing supply chain. Our factory has over 3 decades of sock manufacturing experience. It’s all they do and trust us, they do it well. We have also added an extra month of cushion time in case of any shipping and customs delays.

We’re also not new to the wonderful world of manufacturing. Co-founder Wen has over 10 years of sourcing and manufacturing experience with overseas factories. We’ve done our due diligence and are confident there won’t be anything standing between you and the world’s best socks.
