By now you’ve heard of Bombas Socks – but why won’t people stop talking about them? If you’re like me, you want to know what the hype is all about, because after all, they’re socks! Believe me, I get it. For so long I kept wondering — are Bombas socks worth the hype? As someone who has completely revamped her stance on socks, I can tell you that they are absolutely, without-a-doubt worth every penny. Here’s why…
Why Bombas Socks Are Worth it…
First of all, what are Bombas? Bombas are socks for men, women and children made from pima cotton with a focus on comfort and performance. What’s better? Giving back is at the heart of what they do, so for every pair purchased, a pair gets donated.
“Bombas is derived from the Latin word for bumblebee. Bees live in a hive and work together to make their world a better place. They’re small, but their combined actions have a big impact on the world. We like that. That’s why our mantra is bee better. We put this reminder inside each Bombas clothing item as a reminder that little improvements can add up to make a big difference, and that your purchase went towards directly helping someone in need.”
Now that I’ve covered that, here are a few reasons to love Bombas a little bit more than the rest…
Bombas Is A B-Corp
B Corp certification is awarded to companies that achieve higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. B Corps are committed to using business as a force for good in the world. Other companies include Olukai, Casper mattresses and Athleta.
“Bombas earned B Corp status for our commitment to helping those in need with our One Purchased = One Donated business model, for the way we treat our employees, the volunteer work we do on a regular basis, and how we make decisions as a company. The certification matters because it signals our serious commitment to community, makes public our intentions as a company, and validates our practices through rigorous outside review.”
Bombas Are Comfortable
This pretty much goes without saying, but Bombas socks are incredibly comfortable. In fact, my entire family wears them after my mom started purchasing them years ago. A big sticking point for me in socks is that for working out and running or walking, I like low cut socks, but not low enough that ride down so my ankles chafe. I know — it’s a tall order. Well, it’s one that Bombas delivers on! No riding down, no chafing, nada! Plus, in their no-show socks, the rubber stays put all day, as Dane can attest to as someone who wears them daily with his Sperry’s.
Lots of Styles
Workout, hiking, no-show, athletic, dress, casual — Bombas has you covered! If you are into fitness, I really cannot say enough about their athletic socks. They have made all the difference and I was a Thorlo girl FOR LIFE! So, believe me when I tell you that their ‘Hex Tec’ construction for breathability and moisture-wicking is the real deal.
