Irish Socksciety Background

Every brand has a story as to why they started and where they want to go. “We feel that feet have lots to say, and to help them talk, we design colourful and funny socks here, in Galway, on the west coast of Ireland, in the middle of the beautiful Wild Atlantic Way”. 

The founders are two best friends Alex and Joanna who love to laugh, spend time together and dance a lot. They self describe their wardrobe as very black or grey however when it comes to socks they are all about the vibrancy, colour splash and excitement. And sometimes they don’t even need to be matching.
