Arthur George  Did you really think we could do a story about a sock company and not include someone from the Kardashian Klan? This brand, however, isn’t owned by Kim, Kourtney or Khloé, but rather little brother Rob. After seeing the success of his sisters, the young entrepreneur decided he wanted to go into the footwear business. The line is still going strong and has been featured in publications ranging from InStyle to the Los Angeles Times.

Happy Socks  Started by friends Victor Tell and Mikael Söderlindh, this brand strives to spread happiness by turning an everyday essential into a colorful design with quality, craftsmanship and creativity. Not only do they sell their product on every single continent, but they do so with fun designs and motifs.

Feel like wearing palm trees on your feet for a little R&R? Check. Or maybe you’re feeling a bit artistic and want some splatter paint? They got you covered there too.

Sock It To Me  This is probably the most exciting brand we have found yet. No boring plaids or checkers here. This company is all about having fun on your feet. Whether you feel like having a giant squid overtaking a small ship just above your ankle or want to have a cheeseburger foot for the day, the possibilities are endless. If you’re still not satisfied, the company offers a ‘design-your-own’ contest and the top 30 entries are created and sold.
