The Sock Drawer Story

Here at The Sock Drawer, we’re all about the little things that brighten your day! Our goal is to add a touch of joy to your life, either by pinpointing the perfect fun socks that just crack you up, by chatting with you on a personal level or by writing a quick note to slip into your online order. We know that putting a spring in your step will help you radiate that joy to others!

This was the goal our founder Brooke English, the original sock fairy, had in mind when she opened a small sock store in San Luis Obispo, California, in 2007. She quickly connected with the community, and the downtown shop thrived, buzzing with the warmth and familiarity of a friend’s home. When she took her vision online in 2011, everybody wanted in!

Brooke English, Sock Drawer Founder & CEO

“After a decade in the original shop and success I never imagined online, our sock-loving family is larger than ever, and we’ve reached tens of thousands of feet around the world!”

Brooke English, Founder

The Sock Drawer is now one of the largest online sock companies in the world, offering thousands of styles that Brooke and her team of kooky, cheerful sock fairies hand-pick from the best sock brands based on the eclectic style needs of our amazing customers.

Still based in San Luis Obispo, The Sock Drawer gives back to local organizations supporting women, children, animals and the environment and creates a positive, supportive atmosphere for employees in its headquarters and the original downtown shop.

We look at each of our customers as part of our sock family, a quirky group of colorful optimists who spread the spirit of fun and funky socks into the world! Become a part of our family by stopping in to see us at our store or by rocking your favorite styles for women, men and kids for all to see!
