Ken Macy

Graphic designer Ken Macy was living out in LA when, much to his disappointment, he couldn't find any fun, interesting socks. No matter, he decided to create his own. Inspired by everyday objects, he decided to create socks that looked like identifiable objects as opposed to a typical pattern.

              great socks, got them for my husband (he is a teacher) to wear for back to school season. The only complaint is that it is hard to tell that the pencil socks are actually pencils while wearing shoes. THey look better/make sense w/o shoes.

                The manufacturer is missing a trick by not offering these socks in kids' sizes. My daughter (aged 8) was devastated that she couldn't have a set for herself.

                      My daughter loves these socks - and she's very picky about clothing (must be comfortable -- just the right thickness, thinness, color, size, feel, you get the idea). We're on our second set of three pair -- after many wearings, she's worn through the toes on three individual socks.
