One of the advantages of buying socks from Sock Club, custom or otherwise, is that all of our socks are designed, sourced, and manufactured in the USA. This means that you get to know the people that actually make your socks. Our “Employee Spotlight” blog series introduces you to one of the people behind your socks, from design to production.
