Society Socks Review by Mel – November 2017

I was very surprised when Society Socks landed on my doorstep this month, in a good way of course! I had not realised that I was to be receiving them again. So Thank You to Society Socks for the pleasant surprise.
They have totally re vamped their packaging. The Bag is a foil resealable packet, it has a matte finish in a navy blue with a funky white print. I really do like this, and its practical as it stops the socks becoming damaged in transit.
The man of the house clocked these immediately and asked me if they were for him, like he didn’t already know that. He has been wearing the ones he received last month, and said he loves them! He has asked me to mention the fact they do not slip down at all when wearing them. He said these are the only ones he owns that don’t, so he is more than elated to add to his bright sock collection. He was already a sock lover and so when Filip from Society Socks asked us to review for them I requested that I would be the one to take on the challenge. I do hope that next month he will show his face on camera, but he is shy (unlike me!).
How does Society Socks work?
Now this is the part I love the most. Subscription Boxes are into the thousands, yes I do have a list ladies! But where this one differs is that they have a cause. For every pair of socks you receive, a pair are donated to those in need. Homeless shelters only accept new socks, I have only just learnt this… I am so glad that now I know, as I often donate locally too so I will be sure to include new socks when I do this Christmas.
Their mission is this:

‘To serve suffering children of the street, and protect and safeguard all children – with absolute respect and unconditional love.’

Now I personally find this so touching. When you work out the pricing, half of what you pay every month is going to charity. This makes it almost guilt free, you are buying essential items and giving to a worthy cause!
The pricing is as follows:

  • £13 per month for 2 pairs, FREE P&P
  • A 3 month Gift Subscription is £37 (£12.33 per month)
  • A 6 Month Gift Subscription is £71 (£11.83 per month)
  • A 12 Month Gift Subscription is £134 (£11.17 per month)

There is no tie in period, you can cancel at any time. The gift subscriptions are payable upfront but do save you money if you can afford to do it this way, as outlined above.
They also have a Sock Store where you can buy their Socks for £8 per pair.
I unboxed live on the BoXession Facebook group, which has now been uploaded to our YouTube Channel; you can view by clicking play below…

So What did I receive?
2 Pairs of Funky, stylish socks! These are both size 7-13, mens size, so one size fits all. He is a size 11 so they fit perfectly! They are 80% combed cotton, 15% polyester and 5%.
One pair are Black with a Green Cactus Print on them, and the other pair are Red with pale blue and white diamonds on them. I particularly like the red pair as they remind me of Christmas, and I totally love how RED they are.
The Verdict?
I can honestly say that we would subscribe to this if we were not reviewing for Society Socks. The man is so impressed with these, he is from Yorkshire and therefore a man of very few words. When he says something is good, this means they are!
I have the task of doing the household washing for us all. I mentioned this last month but I would be more than happy to see a Children’s version of this Subscription. My Boys are aged 2 and 10 and they would both love these. To be honest my eldest son is already in a shoe size 5 so it won’t be that long before he can fit into these!

I mentioned last month that when you go onto their Website a pop up appears for you to get 50% off your first order. Well I have discovered that the code ‘FUNKY50’ can also be used for the same discount.

I highly recommend this subscription, yes I know they are just socks… but with a social cause and for £6.50 for your first order you really cannot lose on this one, it is pocket change!
Thank You my lovelies for reading…
