Athletic socks haven’t been in the style vernacular since the days of the Harlem Globetrotters. Yeah, it’s been a while. Nobody has reworked a damn ankle or knee sock for eons yet athletic shoes are redeveloped constantly. On a more sobering note, socks are the most requested item at homeless shelters. This statistic had two guys, Randy and Dave, thinking. They met back at Urban Daddy and since leaving the site, decided to focus their time and energy on a socially conscious sock line. Bombas was born.
The word Bombas is derived from the Latin word for bumblebee. Bees work together to make the hive a better place. That’s what this company is all about (and you will be reminded inside every pair of socks that reads, ‘Bee Better’).
So what makes these socks so great?
Peruvian Pima cotton: It is incredibly breathable and excellent at wicking moisture. It is also known for holding color so your socks will continue to pop, wash after wash.
Stay Up Technology: The team tested loads of tension level and found one that is just right but not too tight.
Y-Stitched Heel: Creating a natural cup around your heel.
Blister tab: Extra added cushion to protect the ankle from rubbing and chaffing.
Perforated Footbed: Reinforced but not thick for extra support and longer lasting socks.
Invisitoe: No more irritating toe seams.
Honeycomb support system: (more bee references!) A honeycomb weave is used to distribute pressure evenly throughout your arch.
Now for the feel good part – For every pair of socks purchased a pair will be donated to Hannah’s Socks, a charity that collects and donates socks to those in need.
Fundraising for this project is nearly complete so if you place an order now, they will arrive in November. Now, get ready to give us your best Meadowlark Lemon shot!
