Sock it to Me

You will enjoy a pair of luxurious socks made from bamboo fibres to keep your feet warm in winter and cool in summerwith anti-bacterial, anti-odour and anti-chafe qualities. Every pair of socks is both stretchy and fitted for the ultimate comfort and long-lasting wear.
With your pair of socks, you are supporting the children of South Africa in gaining a better education.

You are supporting a mission and sustainable business model that enables South Africans to give back to their country and make social entrepreneurship a priority instead of an option.
Starting on the Right Foot
The foundations of Sexy Socks were laid back in 2014 in South Africa by a man named Dave. It reads a little like a storybook, but it all began when Dave was woken from his afternoon nap by a homeless man knocking at his front door. The man was cold, wet and very hungry, so Dave welcomed him inside with a meal and some dry clothes. But Dave couldn’t help but think just how many more people there were living on the streets or in a shack of South Africa without access to fundamental human needs such as warmth and safety.
On a mission to use business to make positive change coupled with a passion for “nice things”, Dave founded Sexy Socks. Along with a commitment to providing free school socks to every child in South Africa’s township schools, the socks drops give the social enterprise a platform to talk directly with children about social entrepreneurship. This means Sexy Socks are working to empower the next generations to give back to their country and make South Africa a better place to live for everyone.
