Zkano Socks

Always reading (skimming) the news, I came across an article in the New York Times on an Alabama *organic* sock company run by a 36 year old. Intrigued and inspired, I ordered four pairs of socks from Zkano…..and now they are the ONLY socks I wear.

From the Times: “Going organic (the cotton comes from a farm in Lubbock, Tex., the dyes from North Carolina) has given Gina a marketing niche. Her socks appeal to millennials, who study labels and like a compelling origin story.” And yes, apparently I am a millennial, because I too, was hooked based on the organic aspect and interesting story!


Organic socks? Who knew! And yes, I love them!

The socks come in a bzillion categories: ankle, slouch, crew, knee high, over knee, basic and sport — for women, men, and kids. I am a big fan of ankle socks and stripes, so the combination of ankle striped socks were my go-to-pick. And I couldn’t be happier.


With all the wear and tear I do with socks, these have lasted and are durable and comfortable.

With all of the walking I do in New York, I go through socks like it’s my job. These have lasted and are durable and comfortable.

These socks will make you happy. Like good undies, the difference of high quality, comfortable, and cute makes ALL the difference. Hope you have a great week.
