Wild Socks was started with the mission of supporting wildlife conservation. That's why we donate 30% of gross profits from every box sold to conservation charities dedicated to safeguarding the animals featured on our socks. So with every pair, you help protect the future of your favourite animals in the wild. By making a statement with our bold and eye-catching designs, we also aim to help start conversations and spread awareness about wild animals and the threats they face.
