Hooray! There is a new subscription box for men in the UK. That’s good news, because while you can find a lot of monthly subscriptions for the ladies, men have it a little bit harder to find great subscription boxes (other than shaving blades). This is my full review of socksinabox.com a UK company that promises to send you great quality pair of socks every month. Do they deliver? Let’s find out right now.
What is Socksinabox.com?
The concept behind socksinabox is quite simple. You purchase a 3 months, 6 months or 12 months subscription and you will get a new, quality pair of socks every month (for the duration of your subscription). Socksinabox has 14 different types of socks, from bright and colourful (the dude collection) to the Classic Man. The choice is great and you can even get some socks in bamboo fabric!
Packaging and what's in the box?
I really like it when a company takes the time and effort to create nice packaging for their products. I think that socksinabox has done things right here. The cardboard box is simple, minimalist and sturdy. As the box is thin it will go directly through the letter box!
When you open the box, you are greeted with a nice little leaflet to thank you, and if this is a birthday present you get another leaflet with a Happy Birthday message and a little explanation about socksinabox.com
Then of course you will find your pair of socks - because after all, this is all about socks in a box!
What about the socks?
I received a pair of socks from the Dude collection. The first thing I noticed is that the fabric is extremely soft and it feels really great. The overall feeling is that this is an excellent pair of socks, very well made. The design of the “Dude collection” is bright, colourful and full of stripes. It is a one size fits all. I am very happy with the pair of socks I received and the quality is really great. My only complaint is that I don’t know what are the socks made of. The label says: Socks may contain cotton, polyester, bamboo, lycra etc… but to be honest, it would be nice to know the type of fabrics used.
How much does it cost?
Socksinabox.com offers three types of subscriptions. You can purchase a 3 months, 6 months or 12 months subscription. Socksinabox.com doesn’t work on a monthly rolling subscription.
The 3 month plan costs: £19.99. The 6 month plan costs £34.99 and the 12 months costs £67.99. Note that socksinabox.com has also a collection of premium fabrics socks that are more expensive.
Customer service and website.
The experience is really straight forward and navigating through their website is easy. They have a detailed FAQ’s part that is really helpful if you have any questions or queries. And if you want to contact them you can send a message directly through the website or social media (Twitter for example). Customer service is fast, friendly and you shouldn’t experience any issues. Thanks to 3 different pre-paid subscription plans you don’t have the stress of miss payment or cancelling the subscription.
Socksinabox.com is fresh, and has a lot of potential. The quality of the product is really good, the 3, 6, 12 months plan is an excellent idea and perfect for a birthday/Christmas present.
The choice of 14 different collections of socks is another plus. If like me you are a sock “addict” or if you are in urgent need of new socks….I highly recommend you to subscribe to socksinabox.com
