Hearts, red, pink, candy and kisses are all common Valentine’s day themes. We’ve got a category full of sweet styles for your sweetie (luckily socks won’t give you a toothache) and we’ve already seen some super thoughtful sock gifts pass though our hands. We’ve offered a couple different takes and styles on the holiday here on the Sock Journal over the years and our site’s theme is even in the mood for love.
This year, we’ve got a Valentine’s gift for you. No, not a sale or a code, but something much sillier. May I present four covers for (pretend) romance novels featuring our favourite stars, socks! If any style tugs at your heart strings, I’ve given the names links straight to the colour shown.
Her love held him, but would their fibers keep them apart?
Shirley was a gorgeous cotton sock and heiress to a fortune. When she finally meets Michael, the one sock who seems to love her for more than her money, Shirley knows in her deepest heart that he’s too good to be true. When he turns out to be a wool blend she works even harder to bind him with love, hoping he’ll stay and that their different washing techniques won’t keep them apart. But will Shirley go too far and actually felt his cashmere-blended heart?
A baby can test your patience, but can it test your love?
Bea and her baby Dottie give Sabina the family she always wanted. Sabina has never hesitated about jumping into a situation with both feet, but she’s also never jumped into something quite like this. Is sharing the duties of mother too much for the Bea and Sabina’s growing love?
Branded “L” for Love
A sheriff bootsock romance.
Sheriff Gregorio was never easily swayed by a steady life or a pretty sock, until he met April. The flirty knee high was as sweet as could be, but it was her streak of bull-headedness that roped him in. When he finds out that April has been running her family’s ranch by herself, Sheriff Gregorio pitches in and finds that he and his trusty steed might be ready to settle down.
Tides of Desire
They never expected to be swept away . . . by love.
The beach cottage was playboy Greyson’s getaway, a place to escape to. Just like he’d escape to the arms of whoever he could find, leaving both love and cottage when the city called him. This time he chose Franco and, as the sun-warmed days wore on, Greyson began to doubt he could leave his soft embrace—but could Franco fit in with Greyson’s city life?
I am not ashamed to admit I maybe spent a lot of time thinking of the stories for these. I mean, I love socks, why couldn’t they love each other?
Have a lovely Valentine’s day and remember to treat yourself too! Because, if I can paraphrase one of my favourite quotes, “if you can’t love yourself, how are you gonna love someone else?”
We are a few days into a new month, complete with a new theme and a new newsletter due to be shipped soonly through the virtual tethers that connect us all… Have you signed up yet? They don’t go out often, mostly just once a month, and they’re filled with fun information, relevant facts and every so often we throw in a special discount code so you can get even more socks!
This year’s Valentine’s theme is slightly different from last year’s, as you can see from my signature below using last year’s version… and it will lead into a similar, yet different, theme later this month thanks to the designing magic of Olivia.
P.S. be sure to check out our Valentine’s collection, we didn’t go in for many novelty socks this year, just a sweet collection of our favorites plus some special edition Gumball Poodle LOVE socks for fun.

Around Valentine’s day interest in classic stocking styles sparks. Backseams are a classic, but the cuban heel adds a pin-up touch to the already timeless look of nylons. A cuban heel stocking is defined by an opaque foot bed that runs from the toes up past the heel, ending in a point. Backseamed and best paired with garters for insured stay-up-ability, they’re undeniably foxy.
Our Cuban Heel collection may be small, but there are three definite pin-up styles that rock the cuban heel.
For non-traditional takes on the cuban heel and a little bit of definition nerding after the jump!
