About us

Welcome to Wild Socks! We’re so glad you’re here.

Our Story

We started Wild Socks for one reason: to Keep Life Wild.

We’ve always been passionate about animals, but it wasn’t until we were fortunate enough to spend a few years traveling and working in some of the world’s most beautiful and biodiverse national parks that we became truly wild about wildlife.

During our travels, we set out to see some of this Earth’s incredible wildlife up close, from 4kg Fiordland crested penguins in New Zealand to 400kg moose in Canada. After seeing these animals in the wild and witnessing the efforts of people dedicating their lives to protect them, we were inspired to act.

The idea for Wild Socks was actually developed whilst living in Fiordland National Park in New Zealand back in 2018. However, our travels got in the way and, for a long time, the business remained a dream.

Then came 2020.

As you can imagine, our life as travellers came to a grinding halt, along with all of our plans for the year. But, the silver lining? We finally had the time to start our business.

Our Products

We’re proud to be launching our first box, The Ocean Box, with three vibrant pairs of socks supporting three marine conservation charities. With every box purchased, 30% of gross profits will be donated to help safeguard threatened wildlife. To learn more about (y)our impact, please click here.

We hope you love our first designs and the charities they support as much as we do. Stay tuned, more fun socks supporting more amazing conservation charities will be released soon.
