Socks in a Box (His & Hers) Review by Mel – December 2018

My partner Rob & I have been looking for another Sock Subscription for a while now, and as If by magic, we had an email from Mark & Anna who own Socks in a Box!

When I told him, he was really made up! I have talked about this several times in past reviews, and as you all know I have been buying and reviewing boxes for years now. The man of our house loves Meat, Cheese and Socks! He is extremely picky with his Socks too, I call him a Sock snob, ha!

The box arrived via Royal Mail, it was letterbox friendly but my postie never pushes them through! I am sure he is too worried to damage the boxes as he knows I am a Blogger and take photos of them. I love the box design, clear and bold, and lets you know exactly what they are…

The packaging is fully recyclable too, right down to the sleeves on the socks! On the reverse of the sleeves there are washing instructions too.

I wasted no time to unbox as Rob was keen to get to try these out. If you missed my live unboxing you can watch it back here on our YouTube Channel…

So what is in the box?

2 Pairs of stylish funky socks! One for men which are suitable for sizes 7-11, and one for ladies suitable for sizes 4-7!

The socks are all made from quality cotton and include a “hand-linked toe” which means that the seam around the toe is flat and is therefore more comfortable to wear

Rob’s are really brightly coloured checkered blocks, with a grey trim.

Mine are pink and coral colours, also with a grey trim. The colours really remind me of Flamingo’s, and I do love Mingo’s!

Of course, the only way to truly know if these are good is to wear, and wash them. So that is what we did.

I am a size 7, so I worried about the sizing of these on me at first. They fit like a glove, I mean sock! Seriously they fit really well, the elastic around the ankle is not too tight and does not leave any marks after wearing all day.

As promised the toe area is really comfy too, they give lots of wriggle room. I often find when wearing boots or wellies in this weather my socks can become really restricting, but these are brilliant.

Rob also agreed that they were really soft, comfortable and true to size. He is a size 10.5 and has really slim feet so has the issue where they slip down a lot when he is wearing them. These did not do that either so he is a fan. Nothing worse than being at work all day hitching your socks up he says, ha!

They wash really well, with no need for tumble drying, they go back to shape lovely too. I wash on a 40 this time of year, but 30 in the summer.

Our Verdict?

I love that you can gift the boxes, and personalise a message card. I am always telling people that Subscription boxes are the perfect gift, and a lot of our other Bloggers buy them for family members this time of year. I always say that they are the gift that keeps on giving, as if you buy a 3/6/12 month sub, they are getting a gift from you every month. They are reminded of that every time the box arrives too.

To put this into perspective. If I was to buy Rob a 3 month subscription (2 Pairs per Month), using our discount code it would be £27.19. That is £4.53 per pair. When you consider the quality, the unique design and the convenience that they arrive straight to our door, that is a bargain.

So yes, I would definitely buy these, and for all those last minute Christmas presents, head over to their Website below to order!
