Roots are funny old things and we humans have a long history of gnawing on, boiling, and chopping any root that looks like it might be useful. Who would’ve thought, for example, that the humble liquorice root would become such a handy ingredient in both medicines and foodstuffs. In Italy it’s transformed into booze, the Chinese add it to hearty broths, and some Spaniards use it as a breath freshener. In England liquorice is most famous in its incarnation as a collection of multi-coloured sweets that would make Joseph and his Dreamcoat look dull. We designed these Liquorice AllSOXKS in honour of this versatile root, and as a wink, a nod, and a nudge to its colourful offspring.

SOXKS was founded in 2013 by Matt Bowden and Arthur Burnand (pictured). Both originally from the UK, Arthur and Matt hope to bring some creative energy, a sense of humour, and a philosophical approach to the world of hosiery.
SOXKS’ focus is on quirky design, high quality products, and attention to detail. Each SOXKS design has an inspirational story behind it, and with our unique packaging concept, hand-stitched toes, and embroidered logo, SOXKS are highly original products that stand out from the crowd.
SOXKS are made in a small, family-owned sock workshop in the town of Shetou, Taiwan. We take pride in the fact that while many brands use impersonal, large-scale suppliers, we know each person working on our SOXKS personally.
Our website, SOXKS.com, will launch in mid-August 2013�
