It was just yesterday that we were sittin' in a bar with holes in our socks gamblin' away what little we had left for a one-way ticket back to America. Now here we are, on the greatest site in the world, sippin' champagne with you fine people.
We're not your typical sock company. In fact, we're not your typical company.
We believe in holding meetings at 2:00 AM. We believe in playing an anthem every morning at the office (in case you're curious, it's Gold Dust Woman by Fleetwood Mac).
We believe in using dice, cards and chips as a means to solve problems. We believe in doing things the right way...no matter what. We're also on a mission.
A mission to create fine American socks that don't compliment wardrobes, but define them. Which is why we haven't stopped improving our diverse lines of socks: we believe it's high time that what we wear on our feet should challenge the status quo.
To top it all off, we also have fun here. Like Raiders of the Lost Ark at a drive-in fun. Mildly over-competitive horseshoe matches fun. Cigars and brews by the lake fun.
And we hope you do too. We're Strolling Wild. Now check out how we got here.
Back in March 2014, a man was hit with some truth: after searching far and wide across the globe, he was unable to find a decent pair of no-show socks to wear with his loafers.
So he called up a few of his closest friends and together they did what many men before them have done when faced with a virtually insurmountable challenge: split a great big bottle of bourbon and hash out the beginnings of a business plan.
Shortly after, the team came to the realization that they not only needed to create genuinely good no-show socks, but that they also never owned a pair of socks they truly enjoyed wearing.
Between the itchy polyester socks made in who-knows-where, the unoriginal patterns that just weren't cuttin' it and the obnoxiously high price tag for well-crafted, American-made socks, they knew there was plenty more work to be done.
So they rolled up their pants and got to work. A few months later, the guys lined up production for several different styles and never looked back. (Neither did the women who immediately started dating them.)
After a lot of sleepless nights, brick walls and great memories made the hard way, Strolling Wild officially launched in October, 2014. Sock drawers have never been the same since.
Every sock we meticulously design is manufactured from premium cotton grown in Tennessee, Kentucky and Virginia. Each pair is then cut, sewn and finished by hand at some of the best hosiery mills in North Carolina.
We know what you're thinking, and you're right, it doesn't really get any better than this. On top of the exceptionally soft cotton we use to build the base of our socks, we also pay specific attention to the little things that make our legwear so darn choice.
Our casual socks are stitched with an innovative elastic that allows them to fit more snug across the heel and stay up longer on the calf.
Our dress socks are knitted from 200 needlepoint machines with the help of some of the softest, most breathable micro-nylon yarn in the world.
Our athletic socks are full-cushioned and terry-looped to ensure superior arch support and seasonal durability no matter the elements.
It took the better part of a year, dozens of prototypes and hundreds of manufacturers to get to where we are today, but we're pleased to say that our lineup of products will quite literally knock the rest of your not-as-good-socks off. Really.
It took starting an incredibly awesome company to get us all under one roof. We're glad it happened.
We also work with a number of designers, developers and suppliers across the country that have been integral to our success. Without them, we just wouldn't be strolling.
It's about time you joined us.
