Giving Back with Bombas

Growing up, my brother and I always had some running jokes when it came to gifts, especially at Christmas time. As we’d be opening our gifts, we’d always try to guess which ones were underwear or socks (by shaking them, of course), and when it turned out that one of them actually was underwear or socks, we’d kick up the excitement just a little bit more.

Because as a kid, who doesn’t love getting socks, right?

Okay, I’m kidding. As a kid, my brother couldn’t have cared less about getting socks as a gift. But as an adult? Well, we’ll just say that my brother is most likely not going out and getting himself new socks on the regular. So a couple of weeks ago, I decided to surprise him and his girlfriend Carissa with a little something special…

Socks!! But these aren’t just any socks. Have you guys heard of Bombas? Bombas are athletic-leisure socks, re-engineered to look better, feel better, and perform better, with a mission to help those in need. I first heard about the company a few months ago, but as I looked into them a bit further, I was absolutely impressed with what I learned.

Bombas(Here’s a great video about their donations and impact, too! http://bombas.com/video-landing-page/)

It’s kind of like Toms or Warby Parker, for socks, which I find to be super cool. Did you guys know that socks are the number one clothing request at homeless shelters? Well, since launching in October 2013, Bombas has donated over 300,000 socks to those in need. That is definitely something I can stand behind. Not to mention the fact that they’re wicked cute AND incredibly comfortable.

Bombas socks

Bombas actually spent two years on research and development prior to launching, to come up with a number of substantial improvements to the athletic sock…

Bombas socks

Invisitoe – They hand link their socks to get rid of the annoying bump that runs across the toes on most socks.

Bombas socks

Y-Stitched Heel – A Y-shaped stitch creates a natural cup around your heel, so your sock stays in place.

Bombas socks

Blister Tab – A tiny ankle cushion that sits directly where your shoe hits your leg to prevent painful rubbing and chafing.

Stay Up Technology – One of the first things I noticed when I wore my first pair of calf socks is that they really stayed up there, without making it feel like I was losing circulation from them being too tight.

Bombas socks

I can attest to the fact that Bombas stay up, aren’t too tight, and don’t slip down (they actually tested 133 different tension levels!).

Long Staple Pima Cotton – The minute Jay and I put our first pair Bombas on, I think we both looked at each other and said “Holy @*!$, these are comfortable!” The Long Staple Pima Cotton stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer with its natural moisture wicking properties.

Bombas socks

Even better, Bombas offers a 100% happiness guarantee: If you don’t think they are the most comfortable socks you’ve ever worn, they will refund your entire purchase. But I would imagine they hardly ever have to offer refunds because, I swear, the things are ridiculously comfortable. And they make people very happy. Winking smile

May Stitch Fix Review

May Stitch Fix
