As you know, I only feature products on this blog that I like and handpick myself. Sometimes I am lucky enough to feature products that I adore and fully endorse, like Pride Socks. This company immediately caught my eye with their awesome rainbow colored vintage style tube socks and after doing a bit of research, I also fell in love with their message and back story.
Pride Socks is about being proud of who you are so you have the confidence to achieve your dreams. This can be interpreted in so many different ways and I love that. These socks and the positivity of their message is totally up to you. Every order comes with these cute stickers (shown below) so you can write down your proudest moment and display it proudly. Ultimately, it’s all about feeling good about yourself and your accomplishments.
Owner Rachel Smith was always obsessed with socks even as a child. She was one of five siblings, born and raised by Deaf parents, who revealed that job opportunities and income were limited growing up. They often recycled clothing between siblings and matching, hole-less socks became a commodity in their household. The challenges Smith’s family encountered bonded them and also established her strong appreciation for diversity in others. As she states on her website, “At Pride Socks, we believe when people are proud of who they are, where they are and what they do in live, they can and will accomplish their dreams.”
These socks come in a variety of different styles (but all with the same vintage rainbow theme). We received the white low cuts, black low cuts, and a nice throwback to the 80′s: white under the knee socks. They also make business socks if you want to proud and fancy at work!
