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!
I’ve written before about sock dreams coming true when a style we wish for happens or when a favourite sock comes back to us—but this may just be the dreamiest dream to come true yet!
Of course, I’ve got to tease a little.
and a little over three since they were available in an OTK and a thigh high.
But it’s been almost two years since we’ve had them in stock. The yarn for these socks was discontinued and we’ve been on a hunt for a replacement ever since.
But a secret stash of the yarn has been found—enough to make a limited run of both OTK and thigh highs. We won’t have them forever and we’re still looking for a long-term supply of this yarn, but for a short time, this sock dream has come true.
Have you guessed what they are? Join us after the jump for the answer! Read more »
Oh the stars and stripes! If your Fourth of July outfit needs a little more flair, we have three bold American flag options for you to rock.
There is also a brand new arm warmer style that would be a great layer when it gets chillier at night watching fireworks, the Patriotic Arm Warmer.
Of course, you can be patriotic more subtly, by wearing something made in the USA. Some of our favourite American-made styles after the jump!
