#BlackSocks #Review #luxurysocks


Well, Blacksocks are a staple in every man's drawer, especially with dress shoes. Right? So I found a pretty neat site altogether whether you prefer a "sockscription" or buying however many pairs you'd like.

Blacksocks holds in their supplies fine PIMA cotton socks that are made in Italy, directly shipped from Switzerland, and are calf high.  Colors available include black, navy, brown and gray. Sizes available range from XS (3-1/2-5) to size 14-15.5(XXXL) which means there's socks for feet of every size!

So I was a sent a knee-high pair of Urban Comfort, made from 75% organic cotton, for review and I gave them to the SO to wear. These are supposed to be tough and not wear out as quick so I'm quite eager to see how well they last. I know we've bought some $7-8 socks on sale from about $10 before and so these will make for good comparison. These end up reaching to slightly below the knees and were size large (sizes 8.5-10). Unfortunately, they were slightly big as my SO's feet are a bit smaller than that. Hopefully, they'll fit better after being washed as the label says fits true to size after wash. However, they do give a cool and comfortable feeling once on.

Prices are slightly pricey but I guess you're paying for higher quality socks so price is so-so but they do ship FREE direct from Switzerland and prices already include tax. They are slightly cheaper if you do a sockscription. I have to say I somewhat like the convenience of ordering them and then getting new socks every so often. The great thing about the sockscription is that you'll get the exact same pairs of socks so if you lose one or there's a hole in one, you can match it up with the new ones.

Buy It: Shop online for BlackSocks products. Prices vary and socks start at $12/pair but are slightly cheaper with sockscription purchase.. Blacksocks also carries a variety of calf-high, knee length, merino wool, urban comfort and cashmere socks and high end briefs, boxers and undershirts.
