Society Socks Review by Mel – March 2018

My 6th Month reviewing for Society Socks came around super fast!

Actually they delivered especially early this month, so I wasn’t expecting them. Not that I am complaining in the slightest, this is one parcel that I am happy to see drop through my door. It makes me even more pleased that it always fits through my letterbox and I never get red carded!

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 dark and light grey stripes, with mint green trims. The second pair are black with tiny little multi coloured dots all over them. Every month I am tempted to steal a pair of these for myself, but he would absolutely notice!
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! I like to keep my man happy, and there aren’t many subscriptions out there that he would like. He is very particular when it comes to socks, and he swears by these and looks forward to me bringing him them when we meet as he is working away at the moment.
He has started commenting on how he has a lovely collection of these socks now, and how he never has to go out shopping for boring socks anymore! This is a win/win situation for me too as I would get that job I have no doubt!
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…
