Turn Around Time

It's simple...we're the fastest. Because we're manufacturing the product in our own US facility, we boast the best turnaround time in the world for custom socks: only 1-4 weeks for customers in the US and Canada.


In 2015, we announced the grand-opening of our very own hosiery manufacturing facility. Located in the Former Sock Capital of the World, Fort Payne, AL, we leverage an incredible 300+ years of combined experience. Our highly skilled team of designers and hosiery technicians allow us to offer the best product with unlimited customization.


We offer a low minimum of only 10 pairs per size but 30 total pairs per design/order. This allows our customers to choose a wide variety of socks; home, away, alternate, you name it!

Being an avid sports fan and Ohio State alumni, I’m proud of my Ohio roots and motivated in the sports industry. I take a lot of satisfaction in being a people person and working with the great customers in our market. I spend my time managing our schools and team sock orders, as well as innovating cool custom designs to offer the most popular socks to match their uniforms.

Can’t make buckets if you don’t shoot. Big basketball guy, with an average golf swing. You can catch me at the golf course selling socks, or find me at a basketball game tossing up half course shots, no melo though. Love working with-in the sports industry, and coming up with awesome designs for kids that love the game they play. Always looking forward never back!
