June is LGBT Pride Month and we celebrated by vending at our home town’s festival, Pride NW. We had an absolute blast and sold a lot of rainbow socks. For those of you who may be looking to express your own pride, we wanted to tell you about three of our most popular choices.
The Queer Pride socks from Gumball Poodle were definitely our best selling knee highs during the festival. These Sock Dreams exclusives are made for us right here in the USA. Each sock has words written on both the inside and outside of the leg, one sock showing the word Queer and the other proclaiming Pride. If you want to show off your pride, these socks will shout it loud and clear.
Those who were looking for something a tad more subtle definitely favored the Harvest Rainbows. This muted rainbow stocking comes in several different lengths, from a crew, to a knee high, to a thigh high, and all the way up to our famous Extraordinarily Longer variety. They also come in two different sizes for children. These socks are made from regenerated cotton and the longest version has a cuff stretch of up to 27 inches!
And last, but definitely not least, are our Radiant Rainbows. These were far and away the most popular socks at Pride NW. They come in the same variety of adult lengths as the Harvest Rainbows. The crew version also comes in two foot sizes, small/medium, and medium/large. It is the soft, acrylic yarn with which these are made that allows for such vibrant colors. Folks looking for something with a brilliant spectrum, extraordinary stretch, and fabulous comfort, need look no further. If you’re ready to share your pride, these three sock choices are perfect for you.
UPDATE: After this morning’s historical Supreme Court decision to legalize gay marriage throughout the country, there is no better time to show your gay pride!
If you are like us, you’ve spent hours browsing the website. You’ve gotten lost in the colors, the patterns, and textures. You’ve daydreamed about ways to layer and outfits to wear. But sometime, don’t you want to be able to pick up the socks and hold them in your hands? Wouldn’t you love to run your fingers over those textures and see the colors with your own eyes? Well, your chance is coming, because we are taking our socks on the road! Over the next eight months we will be traveling far and wide to bring our socks to some of the biggest comic book and pop culture events in the United States.
Not only will these events be the perfect time to see our products in person, but it’s your chance to take home some convention exclusives. As always, we will be bringing one of our collectible stickers in a brand new design. This one is a tribute to a favorite animated character. We love her sassy attitude and flawed, yet multifaceted nature. Even if her boyfriend is a real joker. Stop by our booth and get one for free!
In the same vein, we have also created a pair of socks inspired by this quirky character. These socks, like this woman, are truly extraordinary. They are super long and stretchy, expanding up to 24 inches in the calf and up to 27 inches in the cuff! If cosplaying is one of your passions, and you are thinking of dressing as a semi-psychotic trickster, than these will be a perfect fit.

While May might not be what you think of as harvest season, we think that with all of June’s Pride celebrations right around the corner this is the perfect time to expand on one of our most popular lines of socks: Harvest Rainbows!
These colorful thigh highs flew solo for the first few years of their reign, but with the recent addition of junior and youth sizes it’s looking like we might just have dynasty on our hands (or feet, if you will)!
Well a simple dynasty is not enough for us. Nope! That’s why we’ve added two more unisex, adult-sized options: Knee Highs and Crews! You see, while we adore thigh highs and hope you do too, we also don’t think that should be a requirement of rocking awesome, muted rainbows. Besides, they’re so perfect for the Pride festivals that take place during the rather warm month of June, it just made sense to make them in more Summery lengths!
With three foot sizes and multiple lengths, these rainbow socks are getting to be just as diverse as the people that they represent!
We love participating in PrideNW and for our seventh year we teamed up with the Rose City Rollers, joining them in the parade and being their booth neighbours! Last year was the first year we marched in the parade, so it was a fun sequel to share the parade time with other hardcore sock lovers!
As before, our doggie staff was represented by Mr. Ferous, who isn’t quite as little as he was last year.
Dreamers and friends waved socks, hooped hoops and spun staffs, all rocking our favourite legwear. The Extraordinary Harvest Rainbows made a heavy appearance; I think they may be one of the Dreamers’ favourites!
We were booth neighbours with Rose City Rollers (who we love!) and our lovely logo lady was part of RCR’s photo booth, they’ve got a Facebook album full of some great shots on both Saturday and Sunday of the festival.
All in all, another great Pride event! Thank you everyone who visited our booth, used a secret code, cheered us on in the parade and all of you who support us and our Sock Dreams every day! Check out our gallery from this year, Dreamer Sixten got some great photos!
Okay socksters, round two! Today’s phrase is “no T, no shade!”
Just swing by our booth (#B7) at Portland’s Pride festival, werk the phrase into conversation, and you could win big! The first 6 people to say the code will receive a FREE Sock Dreams gift card for $5, $10, or even $20– it’ll be a surprise!
Have fun at Pride, Portlanders! ♥
