Getting Startups Fired Up About Social Justice, One Sock At A Time

Getting Startups Fired Up About Social Justice, One Sock At A Time

Bombas continues to make waves thanks to its unique, buy-a-pair, donate-a-pair mission. The sock brand was recently featured on Fast Company in a story titled “Getting Startups Fired Up About Social Justice, One Sock At A Time.” 

“In 2013, entrepreneurs Randy Goldberg and David Heath stumbled across a Facebook post that mentioned a serious need for socks at homeless shelters around the country,” writes Elizabeth Segran. “They decided to launch a sock company called Bombas that would follow the one-for-one model pioneered by the shoe brand Toms and adopted by brands like Warby Parker. Bombas has worked hard to develop a line of premium, high-tech, fashionable socks, between $12 and $18, that customers would want to buy. Some of Bombas’s best-selling socks are dapper polka-dot dress socks for men and pastel color-block crew socks for women. Four years later, they have sold–and donated–nearly four million pairs.”
