Sock Box Review - December 2014 - Canadian Sock Subscription Box + PROMO CODE + GIVEAWAY!

This box was provided complimentary for review.
What is it? Sock Box
How Much? $13/month for 1 pair or $22/month for 2 pairs, includes shipping
What’s in it? A random colourful pair of socks!

Sock Box is a brand new Canadian subscription box for offering socks! It's one of the only sock subscriptions based in Canada! Right now Sock Box offers socks for men, but in the future they plan to offer socks for women and children as well!



This is the inaugural December Sock Box, which was sent to me complimentary for review. The Mailing envelops is custom printed. The note says "Jillian, if you were a man, I would tell you to tear into awesomeness". I don't get the joke... why do I have to be a man to appreciate the awesomeness?! I received a two-pair pack for review.

HotSox Men #HM100035 in Red ($10)
Bring on the heat! Seriously warm up your toes from the cold weather outside. Being Canadian I know we're all experiencing the chills. Red hot inferno heat will emanate from your toasty toes at the end of the day.
Sock Box has dubbed these "Inferno". They are a cotton/nylon/spandex blend. They fit men's size 9-11.


Unsimply Stitched Diamond Argyle Sock in Heather Grey ($12)
Red, black, orange and grey. These diamonds are here to stay. Pull up your socks and whip out your Crocks. Actually never do that. And if you do, we ask that you don't share your pictures on Instagram. Please do however enjoy this colourful twist on an old classic.
I'm kind of embarrassed to know that Crocs is misspelled on the info card. Yes, I have a pair. They are great for cottage life. These socks are cotton/poly/elastane blend and are actually unisex. They fit men size 8-12 and women size 8-13. Perfect!

My December Sock Box included two pairs of socks valued at $22. A two-pair pack normally costs $20 per month, including shipping. I think of Sock Box as a convenience box rather than a value box. It's aimed at those who enjoy sporting funky, colourful socks, but don't have the time or inclination to shop or hunt around for them. This box would make a fun gift for a hard-to-buy for man, or one who likes to express his personality through his footwear. I might have to give it a try myself when they start offering women's socks!
