- Started by two soccer moms ⚽️, Sockprints firmly believes in encouraging others to get outside and get moving—even if it’s just a few minutes a day! Which is why we’re avid supporters of the Let Them Play Foundation as one of our causes. AND, which is why we’re sharing our five favorite tips for moving with you! 🏃♀️
January 12th is National Youth Day—a day set aside to celebrate the potential of the rising generation to shape and define our future. 🧒🌞🥰
And Sockprints is highlighting one of our favorite charities dedicated to ensuring our youth have the healthiest futures possible: the Let Them Play Foundation.
The winter solstice kicks off the beginning of the winter season (cue the cozy long socks), but it also means short days (and, for many places, cold weather!). ☃️ 🥶
So today, we’re sharing four of our favorite ways to get those good vibes going again. 💕 (And no… we didn’t include “retail therapy” as one of them—though we do love that too! 🛍 ).
It all started on the sidelines of a soccer field. Back in 2009, sockprints’ Co-Founders, Hayley and Jann, were talking at their daughters’ club soccer game when the question, “Can you print on socks?” popped up. Teaming up, Hayley and Jann worked endlessly to find a way to create memorable, one-of-a-kind sport socks for their daughters’ soccer team. After many trial and errors, they were able to successfully answer that question, thus starting the beginning of a great partnership.
Any good team is familiar with the phrase “teamwork makes the dream work.” To help build those bonds of trust while simultaneously fostering unique memories, we created a bunch of new custom printed socks for both the players and parents. Get excited as we release our newest sockprints Spotlight collection: fall sport socks!
