Who ever gives socks a second thought?

Socks are just there aren't they, pretty well taken for granted? But the fact that you're here at seriouslysillysocks.com and reading this means that you appreciate good socks, their comfort and durability, and how important it is to treat your feet for the sake of their health and yours! Probably you smile when you take some cheerful, happy or even humorous design from the drawer in the morning. Or perhaps cooling summer or warming winter socks just make you feel better about facing whatever weather's going to meet you at the door. Good socks are a simple pleasure!

Not a pleasure that everyone enjoys though. Homeless people everywhere dread, among other things, the cold of Winter. At seriouslysillysocks we're doing something about that, and providing socks to the people who live on the streets of Manchester, England. We're delighted to be doing that through a direct action charity called Socks & Chocs! So far we've donated 143 pairs of socks just the same as the ones you see in our store.

Founded in Birmingham, England in 2010, Socks & Chocs is a charity which encourages people to donate socks, chocolates and a few other things besides, (sleeping bags, hats and gloves are good!) No one at Socks & Chocs earns a penny. Through other organisations and willing partners they work to collect and distribute donations in many areas of Britain. We know there are other examples of this type of work around the world.

Now you can help too!

Our new Braintree Square Deal men's bamboo design, a modern and super soft Argyle pattern is now available. Every time you order a pair we give an identical pair to Socks & Chocs! No catch, £5.25 with free UK delivery, and the same quality you'd expect from Braintree!

Clean fresh comfortable socks are something most of us take for granted. For the homeless, with few possessions, limited laundry facilities and wearing socks day and night, a new pair of socks can be a small luxury! Bamboo socks are ideal because they're soft, very comfortable and warm, but wick moisture really well to help keep the wearer cool in warm weather. 

If you're in the market for a pair of men's bamboo socks please do consider our Square Deal design and we'll donate a pair when we ship you your order! You can find this design by clicking here.
