Putting Our Feet Up With SOCKSHOP (+ Competition)

Sponsored Post.

SOCKSHOP socks l Honest Mum

In 1983, SOCKSHOP founder Sophie Miriam famously said, “People should be able to buy socks as easily as they buy newspapers” and thanks to this iconic store, they were able to do just that and continue to, today.

SOCKSHOP‘s online store is currently their biggest to date with over 90 brands available including their own eponymous label of course, as well as Pringle, Jeff Banks, ELLE, Happy Socks and many more!

I’ve personally shopped in SOCKSHOP for as long as I can remember so it’s a joy to be collaborating with this beloved brand sharing mine and my family’s style at home. This is also the very campaign first shoot in our new home so do have a nosey (I’ll be sharing a full house tour once all of the building work is complete)… but back to the socks: well made, sustainable, cosy and super stylish to boot (get it?), we’ve been rocking these tootsie warmers every day and every where be it on the school-run, out with the girls, or chilling at home reading, baking or bingeing our favourite boxset. The SOCKSHOP literally has a pair of socks suitable for every occasion!

Below you can see the following socks, or ‘sockies’ as Xander likes to call them, that we’ve fallen head over heels for:

2 x pairs of ELLE Thermal Bed and Slipper Socks in Blackbird (£8.99).

The snuggliest, dreamiest slipper socks I’ve ever erm, slipped into, these beauties are perfect for people like me who ALWAYS have cold feet! They even have a brushed lining within for extra warmth and comfort making them super toasty! I love wearing mine around the house as thanks to their patternered grips on the heels, and thickness, they replace clunky slippers with ease, and they also help you to nod off when you wear them to bed. Brilliant!

3 pairs SOCKSHOP Patterned, Plain and Striped Bamboo Socks in Black/Grey and Damson Textured for Ladies (£8.99).

These pretty textured socks are made of breathable bamboo which offers 3 times the natural absorbancy of cotton, keeping your feet fresh, dry and comfortable at all times.

Bamboo socks are the ideal choice for those with sensitive skin as they’re made of soft, gentle fibres that won’t irritate while providing a silk-like touch. Bamboo is of course, importantly, kind to the environment as the plant is sustainable, requires very little water, uses no pesticides and gives out 35% more oxygen than its equivelent in trees. These are a smart sock choice for all.

3 pairs Pringle Katie Spots and Stripes Cotton Socks Navy for Ladies (£8.99).

These Pringle socks are made of fine cotton and can be worn with or without shoes of course. They will undoubtedly make a fashion statement if rocked with a heel however, thanks to their stylish spots and stripes. I wore this for some al fresco dining with the girls who all loved the look!

3 pairs Happy Socks David Bowie Gift Boxed Cotton Socks (£39.99) for my little superstars with big feet!!!

These happy-making Happy Socks are frankly too cool for school and like their namesake, David Bowie, excceed fashion boundaries, vibrantly celebrating a man of distinguished personal style and vision. These socks are presented in a dazzling pop-up gift box (as you can see above) making them perfect for big or little Bowie fans, men or women alike.
