My name is Rachel and I am obsessed with socks. The root of this passion stems from my childhood. Growing up, I was one of five siblings, born and raised by Deaf parents; therefore, job opportunities were limited as was their income. One way my parents dealt with this adversity was to recycle clothing between siblings. Matching and hole less socks became a commodity and my obsession was born.
The challenges my family faced inexplicably bonded the seven of us, which established my appreciation for diversity in others. About eleven years ago, my brother began a tube sock company (www.skatersocks.com) and I wanted in. My obsession with socks from childhood rekindled the fire and I was instantly drawn in. I loved the idea of creating old school tube socks but I also wanted a brand that would celebrate the uniqueness of people as well as capture a sense of pride. Harvesting the natural power people have within themselves, Pride Socks not only is a throw back to the past but a visual reminder of opportunities that wait in the future.
At Pride Socks, we believe when people are proud of who they are, where they are and what they do in life, they can and will accomplish their dreams. With that, I am proud to be the heart of a company that encourages and supports individual freedom and expression.
WEAR YOUR FREEDOM. ROCK YOUR STYLE.
I have put together a video of my parents and siblings telling the world what they are most proud of. My family is my world and I am most proud of them!
