Good news for sock enthusiasts. A visionary Swiss startup, Fankisocks, has recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to support its next-generation socks that will redefine the way we look and wear socks and for better. The company has designed the world’s most trendy socks that stand for self-expression and also assure the most comfortable feel ever.
The campaign is geared to raise CHF 27000 ($27,230).
Socks are an indispensable part of our daily wear, and we spend 70% of our lives with our feet covered. Compatible socks are thus a must for our comfort. Now, since socks are such an integral part of our daily life, these are one of the few articles of clothing that should enable us to express ourselves as unique individuals. They are almost like our second skin and must be able to reflect our unique personas.
And, this is where Fankisocks come in.
“It’s true that comfort and quality rule when it comes to creating a good pair of socks. But there is one added feature that should be added to every sock to make it “relatable” to the wearer: a unique feel or essence of the sock. However, the regular socks hardly bother about the aesthetics of the socks and the ethos that they can carry. This is where Fankisocks comes to redefine the sock world. We consider socks as the canvas to express our views of the world. Thus, our socks have that added feature which you won’t exactly find in regular socks-a ‘feel-good’ feeling that will enable you to ‘connect’ with the socks”, stated Daniel Fankhauser, seasoned Swiss designer and the man behind Fankisocks.
Fankisocks designer socks are uniquely designed to make the users “look & feel good.” These exclusive designer socks acknowledge the fact that every human has different and these socks are uniquely designed to celebrate self-expression and individuality. Fankisocks has designed 7 socks so far, and each one of them carries a story behind it.
These exotic designer socks also stand for far superior comfort and quality compared to regular socks. Unlike the existing counterparts that mostly count on 80% or more regular cotton, the Fankisocks socks are manufactured with 75% combed cotton, 22% polyester, and 3% elastane, for added comfort.
“Yes combed cotton is little more expensive than regular cotton but wins over with its premium luxury feel that you won’t find with regular counterparts. It’s a softer yet stronger option and doesn’t carry any impurities or short protruding heads.”
Mr. Fankhauser outlined the benefits of combed cotton:
- High moisture absorption
- Comfortable and very soft on the skin
- Low heat insulation
“We reduced the cotton a bit and added more polyester to give our socks a longer life. Polyester carries excellent insulation properties which make our socks comfy wear in both summer and winter.”
Speaking further, Mr. Fankhauser explained the benefits of using high quality blended fiber in his next-generation socks:
- High, skin-friendly breezy comfort
- Robust and durable
- High stability in regards to both shape and color
- Moisture-regulation in summer and sound insulation in winter
“We have come up with an innovative range of extremely comfortable, eye-catching, premium quality designer socks that will enable you to express your unique persona. Now, we are looking for mass production and hence this campaign. Your generous support will enable us to upgrade the international sock scene and champion your individuality.”
Backers will be rewarded with excellent discounts on Fankisocks socks.
