Last Year in Review

Last Year in Review

TAKE A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE WITH US

It's hard to believe that it's our 3 year anniversary tomorrow. It's been an incredibly fun second year - take a look at some of our favorite memories and moments.

BRANDED DISPLAYS
We designed our branded displays last year and they launched them around the start of our second year. We are now in 35 different retail locations around the country!

TOP SELLING STYLES

The top selling styles during our second year include the no-show socks, the wool socks (especially around Christmas time), and the bamboo socks AKA the softest socks you'll ever wear!

#10k2018

Reaching - and exceeding - the goal of 10,000 pairs of donated socks during 2018 was a moment to remember for us. At the time that we set the goal, 10,000 seemed like such a lofty number to hit. We had no idea how realistic it would be for us to not only reach it, but go well beyond 10,000 socks. Click here to watch the video.

SOCK MOUNTAIN

This was after our Portland, Maine donation at Preble Street. We partnered with them in December 2018. We just love this picture of the mountain socks we were able to donate.

STEVE CISHEK x SKY FOOTWEAR

Our partnership with Chicago Cubs Pitcher Steve Cishek was during the month of May 2019. Him and his wife were so supportive of our mission and it was an experience to remember getting to serve alongside them at Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago. Watch a recap video here.

NEW HIRES
We hired one full time employee, one part time employee, and had an intern with us for the first half of the summer during this past year. The growth is so encouraging for us and we are already seeing additional areas where we could use more help. Who knows, maybe we'll be hiring again soon...!

MOVING
We recently moved out of the storage units into a permanent space. This came just in time because we're currently gearing up for the fall / holiday season. We're so pleased with our new space!

AND OF COURSE, THE BIGGEST MOMENT OF ALL...

Launching our rebrand just a few days ago was probably the most exciting moment of all - a great start to the "birthday week"! This has been over 6 months in the making and it's incredible to see it all come to fruition. We are equally excited as what's to come in the future.
