Society Socks Review by Mel – February 2018

This is my 5th review for Society Socks!

I know I mentioned in my live I couldn’t remember which month we are on, but this is by far one of my favourite Subscriptions that I get to review, and one I would buy if we were not collaborating every month. Thank you to Filip and Sergey for the added personal touch on the little note this month, always appreciated!

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%.

One pair are Red, with grey and black coloured polka dot spots, and black trims. The second pair are grey with little triangles that look like Pizza’s!! These have a black trim. The red ones I think I could steal, but he might notice me only handing over one pair instead of both!
The designs are always unique, I have never seen similar ones in the shops either. I have noticed that they always send one patterned pair and one with animal print.

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!

The Verdict?

Rob absolutely loves these socks! He always asks me if they have arrived yet, they always land at the end of the month without exception – even in snow as is the case this month. Maybe he can wear both pairs to keep his toes warm?!
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. This also keeps him indoors very happy, so if you have a man who loves unique and funky socks, this will absolutely NOT disappoint!
Thank You my lovelies for reading…
