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 on their Website where you can buy their Socks for £8 per pair.

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% elastane.
One pair are bright orange, with little grey bicycles and a light grey trim. The second pair are thick striped with the colours: Pillarbox Red, Black, Navy Blue, Scarlett Red and Sky Blue. The trim on these ones is black.
The code ‘FUNKY50’ can be used for 50% off your first monthly order!
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!
If I had £1 for every time I am asked when his new socks are arriving, I would likely be able to buy him 10 subscriptions! He now has 14 pairs, and is STILL wearing the pairs he received 7 months ago.
He was telling me he wears these with his work boots too and they really are tough wearing. He called me to say he had bought some while in the supermarket and they had got a hole in after one wear, so he was sticking to his Society Socks only from now on, ha!
There are very few subscriptions out there who give to charity, some do but it tends to be a small amount for example £1, or 10% of what you pay. This one is giving literally half of your money every month to people in need, in the form of essential everyday items.
The pricing at £13 is so good, I for one could justify this knowing that I was doing something good every month.
These are a necessity, a subscription that you can buy and feel guilt free! In fact giving to charity it will mean you are doing something nice at the same time, no brainer? I think so!
Thank You my lovelies for reading…
