Sock Dreams has been a proud sponsor of the “Filmed by Bike” Film Festival for the last 4 years. This year the organizers allowed the sponsors their very own 45 Second spot that will air between shorts during the festival.
For more information on the Filmed By Bike Film Festival go here.
…There are a bunch of Sock it to Me socks featured, with the Striped Bolt knee highs in the starring role. The Gumball Poodle Geek socks costar. Here’s a blog post on the filming of this spot from the Rose City Roller girl… Shaolin Spocker who is prominently featured wearing the above mentioned Bolt socks.
We recently learned a new descriptive term that we dig: ‘scrunchy socks’. Sharp eyes may have noticed that the ‘Loose Socks’ collection has been renamed to ‘Scrunchy Socks.’ When talking with our Tabbisocks sales representatives, they explained that the much-loved Super Loose were changing their name.
It turns out that though ‘Super Loose’ is a direct translation of the Japanese word for this style of sock, a more accurate translation is ‘Scrunchy.’ And it definitely seems more accurate! One of the things we love about this style is that you can just scrunch them down.
Is there a difference between ‘scrunching’ and ‘slouching’? Not really, though how we often tend to use the words is that ‘scrunch’ is actively pushing your socks down and ‘slouch’ is when a sock more naturally crumples a little lower. The effect is the same either way, soft folds above your ankles (or tops of your boots!).
In our Scrunchy Socks collection you’ll find two distinct schools of the scrunchy sock, ‘schoolgirl socks’ and ‘slouch socks.’ What’s the difference? Find out after the jump!
Tomorrow evening is the Rose City Rollers’ season opener, with the first intra-league bouts of the 2012 Rose City Rollers home teams’ season. We’ve been supporting the league since 2006! Time has flown by on the fastest of skates.
This summer we had some socks made especially for us by Gumball Poodle, to show off how much we love the Rose City Rollers. You may have seen them for sale at a couple derby events, but now even folks who live far away and still call Portland home can show off their pride for their derby home team with I ♥ RCR knee highs!
There are lots more great derby options, no matter what team you’re on. Drop us a line if you’re having trouble finding your colours or want help finding just the right socks to rock (refs, we have a lot of great black and white vertical stripes, like these!).
Thank you again, Taylor B photography and goooooooo RCR!
We saw the last of the old Rock Socks labels out the door not too long ago and just recently ushered in a bunch of new, made in the USA, styles from this wordy, nerdy brand (Geek, Naughty & Nice and Chocolate are the latest!). They’re one of our favourites, partially because we have so much fun with their backstock. Below I’ve got a couple snaps of our Gumball Poodle backstock boxes. I will admit that sometimes we put things in boxes together because they’re funny rather than because they’re more efficient.
‘Cause who doesn’t want some Wicked Whiskey this time of year?
And I so want to see what a Zombie Heavy Metal Derby involves!

Web designer extraordinaire Olivia has done it again with this month’s fabulous new theme for Halloween!
This theme is so sweet we may be tempted to keep it up past the end of the month and to celebrate the season of playing dress up, or just showing off our favorite autumn outfits, we’re adding new items for fall just as fast as we can (which, try as we might, never seems fast enough) including several new items for our ever growing Halloween section…
My personal favorite from this latest batch of Halloween goodies are the Candy Corn socks…
Based on our classic “striped knees” DreaM Stockings
*made exclusively for us in the USA using recycled cotton*
this version won’t be around long so if you love the bright colors grab a pair while you can.
…but worry not, we’re getting a darker version soon that should last us all the way til winter creeps in.
And when winter does creep in, me and my dogs are going to stay nice and cozy no matter what our crazy Portland weather throws at us!
