Happy Socks are meant to inspire happiness in all who wear them. Rainbow, striped, leopard- and zebra-print, argyle, and polka-dot socks come in bright, contrasting colors and feature hand-finished toes and heels for extra reinforcement. Mid-calf and ankle socks are all the rage for men, while the collections for women and kids offer playful knee-length styles. Based in Stockholm, Sweden, Happy Socks knits its high-quality wares on specially made Italian machines using soft combed cotton, cashmere, hemp, and recycled yarn. Since its founding in 2008, Happy Socks has happily collaborated with the high-fashion store Opening Ceremony, Keds shoes, Bearbrick toys, and the Minecraft video game — producing one-of-a-kind socks and shoes with a pop culture bent.
