Pride Socks empowers individuals to take pride in who they are. Anyone can sell socks, but we sell socks that spread love, pride, respect and inclusion. No gesture is too small to change the world, and we want to change the world from the feet up. When you feel that sense of pride in who you are, we've succeeded.
Pride Socks began with an obsession with socks. The root of this passion stems from my childhood. Growing up, I was one of five siblings, born and raised by Deaf parents; therefore, job opportunities were limited as was their income. One way my parents dealt with this adversity was to recycle clothing between siblings. Matching and hole less socks became a commodity and my obsession was born.
The challenges my family faced inexplicably bonded the seven of us, which established my appreciation for diversity in others. My obsession with socks from childhood rekindled the fire when my brother started his sock company, Skater Socks. I loved the idea of creating old school tube socks but I also wanted a brand that would celebrate the uniqueness of people as well as capture a sense of pride. Harvesting the natural power people have within themselves, Pride Socks not only is a throw back to the past but a visual reminder of opportunities that wait in the future.
At Pride Socks, we believe when people are proud of who they are, where they are and what they do in life, they can and will accomplish their dreams. With that, I am proud to be the heart of a company that encourages and supports individual freedom and expression.
