Imagine the world in which no needs socks; I know socks seem like a clothing item you might not think about as being an important part of your wardrobe. What if your socks were invisible while supporting your foot? Or how about a pair of socks that coordinate with your outfit or add a hint of color? Well, the people at Bombas thought real hard about why shoes have changed over the years, but socks had not. They have created better socks for us that also gives back. Take a minute to read over Bombas webiste and learn why their socks are superior to the ones you might be wearing right now. I’ll, of course, give you a peek at the way they have changed socks for the protections and comfort of your foot: extra long staple cotton, performance footbed, stay up technology, blister tab, Y-stiched heel, honeycomb support system, and maybe my favorite one, the invisitoe (no toe seam). When you put on these socks your feet will thank you. The extra long staple cotton makes them so extra soft, almost as soft as LuLaRoe leggings. They hug your foot in the arc (honeycomb support system). Like I mentioned, what was most impressed by was the fact that there is not seam around the toes, so there is not a line on my feet when I take them off after a day of wearing them. Now, like most well-made items, you pay a bit more; a pair of socks costs $12. Know that the more you buy at Bombas, the more you will save. The first Bombas socks I bought were the solid mixed no-show four pack which provided me a pair of black, white, tan and gray; they cost me $45. I was hoping they would not show with my TOMS as I don’t have comfortable no-show socks for them yet, but they show just a bit at the corners. I am happy that I purchased the colors I did because those are the colors of my go-to TOMS, so I still wear them together as the Bombas socks are way more comfortable than my other no-show socks. Now, if only they can make some that don’t show with my TOMS or ballerina flats I would be a super happy completely satisfied customer. I have begun running again, so the next set for me will be the bright ankle eight-pack and those will run me a $86.
Why am I willing to pay so much for a pair(s) of socks? Well, Bombas socks are not only superiorly made socks, but they also have a purpose behind them. While for many of us socks are an accessory, for many it is a piece of their wardrobe that is vital. Imagine trying to walk around the town in a pair of socks that have holes in the and not get sore; impossible. Bombas founders learned that socks are the number one requested item from homeless shelters and they decided to do something about it. Take a minute and watch their video explaining their original goal of giving away 1 millions pairs of socks in ten years. They have surpassed that goal and have donated 3 million pairs in less than ten years. Bombas is a one-for-one company, so every pair you purchase gives a pair to a homeless shelter in the United States. They have partners in all 50 states and if your company works with people who are homeless, then you should sign up and partner with Bombas. One of the coolest things about Bombas is that they created socks specifically for people who are homeless. The socks they give away are darker in color, have anti-microbial treatment, and reinforced seems. These three things mean that they don’t need to be washed as often, prevent the growth of fungus, and are more durable.
How cool is Bombas?! Now go get some socks that help someone out! We should all switch to support when we have the opportunity. I’m not saying buy all your socks from them, even though that would be totally cool even if you just do it once, then you might spend a bit more money than normal (or not), but you would be supporting someone else. Think how much nicer our world would be if we all helped each other out when we could. Don’t you want to help make it a better, nicer place? “Bee Better” and buy Bombas socks. 🙂
