Here at The Sock Drawer we’ve got socks for everybody. Cute socks, cool socks, funny socks. We’ve got socks for every occasion and every outfit from dressy to super casual sweatpants! And our socks go with all kinds of shoes — but we have to admit that something magical happens when our socks pair up with Crocs.
Yes, you heard that right. Crocs!
Those little foam clogs have been around since 2001, but a recent New York Times article claims that 2020 has been a banner year for Crocs. After all this time, what makes them so popular now?
For starters, they’re super customizable. You’ve got many different styles, colors and even attachable charms to choose from! Additionally, these days Crocs has been collaborating with big-time artists like Post Malone, Justin Bieber and Bad Bunny, releasing “limited edition” styles that often sell out in mere minutes.
But the sock fairies are certain we know the real reason everyone loves Crocs: It’s because you can pair them up with awesome socks that truly reflect your personality!
Recently sock fairy Lindsay let us know she’d just acquired several fun new pairs of Crocs, so we came up with a plan to show that nothing goes better with Crocs than fun socks like ours!
Disclaimer: This plan may or may not have had something to do with relieving some mid-week stress. Impromptu photo shoot around our warehouse? Yes, please!
The attitude at Crocs is “come as you are,” and the sock fairies couldn’t agree more. Besides, we think our slogans are kindred spirits: At The Sock Drawer we aim to weave us a little closer together through the unique, colorful socks we all love.
It’s all about accepting people for who they are and wanting everyone to stand out in their own way. And what better way to stand out than something like knee high socks in the summertime? We think these cute animal socks look fabulous with a dress, and even better with colorful, tie-dyed Crocs! If you love this look, we’ve got plenty more farm animal socks to choose from for both men and women!
Sock fairy Lindsay didn't start out loving Crocs - which is actually true for many people - but they grew on her. Especially once she saw the Kentucky Fried Chicken Crocs. Her explanation: "You know how the weirder something is, the more interested you become? That's how I felt about those KFC Crocs."
The white Crocs with glittery rainbow stripes, above, were the first pair she saw that she just had to have. (She added that they were on sale.) Now her collection has grown. Why? "My wardrobe/style is very simple and neutral," she explained. "Wearing crocs (with Jibbitz charms and socks) is a fun way to showcase a bit of my personality and add some flavor to my outfits."
Lindsay added something most Crocs wearers cite in why they love these clogs so much: "They are so comfortable." So Crocs are perfect for, well, everything. Gardening, working with chickens, standing on your feet all day, sitting all day … you name it! You’ll want to wear yours every day, so it’s a good thing we’ve got so many awesome novelty socks to pair them with!
But how did Lindsay discover Crocs? It was through a grad student and medical scribe named Sarah ... and a blog post we shared back in May, for nurses week.
Turns out Crocs, just like fun socks, are beloved by lots of medical workers for their comfort and silly style pairings with scrubs. Long live #SocksAndCrocs!
We're so happy that interaction with our customers introduced Lindsay to her current obsession. After all, she makes a great sock model!
That's Lindsay on our shop bike. All the sock fairies have been known to take it out for errands or just a stress-relieving spin around the parking lot! So if you’re having a moment where you’re overthinking, remember that bicycling is a great for blowing off steam. Just make sure to put on some fun shoes and socks first!
