Auld Fella Socks – Irish Socksciety


Dad, Daddy, Taxi man, fixer upper of things, sometimes Bank of Dad, always Chief Slagger or the Auld Fella.
Our time with our Dad is a series of moments.

Moments such as:
When they put the foot down and we pay attention.
When we have had a rough day, and they give us that bear hug. A hug that possibly possesses medicinal qualities.
When you head out to your first teenage disco and they wonder if you really are leaving the house dressed like that. (and yes, yes we were)
When the future of your new relationship depends on the firmness of the handshake given to your Dad.  Weak shakers BE GONE!
When they walk you down the aisle and both of you are leaning on each other.
When they stifle a giggle as you inevitably fall five minutes after they teach you how to ride a bike.
How amazing it is that when your world has turned upside down, they are there unconditionally.
When they explain something about their favourite team, and you do your level best to understand. (You say you understand but the vague look in your eyes means that you both know, you are still clueless.)

When you fall out with a pal and your Dad simply states ‘Be grand.’

And they are  right. It will always be grand.


But there are so many people who can be, and are that Father figure to us in our lives.

A big brother, a mate, an uncle, a grandad or even a family friend.

Whoever that person is these socks are for them.

— A handy few phrases to complement your Da with a bit of Irish —

Happy Father’s day Lá na nAithreacha Sona

I love you Dad! Grá mo chroí thú Daid!

Best Dad in the world An Daid is fearr ar domhan

We truly love our socks and are proud of their quality. We also obsess about detail, we could tell you about how the machines we use accept only 100% combed cotton, certified Oeko-tex, and waffle on describing all the fancy 168 needle machine construction works precisely to create every sock uniquely strong and very soft, but you would have stopped reading by now.
Put it this way, remember the first time you got brand new clothes, like not hand me downs, that’s what these socks feel like. We don’t offer one size socks because otherwise your significant other would borrow/steal/lose them. We want to make sure they will fit well on every possible shape and size. From bunion to Bundoran.
Irish Socksiety’s are reinforced from heal to toe so that you can wear them with wellys or vintage brogues.

Our socks won’t slide down your foot come hell or high water! If it’s feet you have, these are the socks you’re after.

Irish Socksciety

Irish Socksciety loves all that is quirky and humorous of contemporary Ireland.
Founders Alex and Joanna feel that feet have lots to say, and to help them talk, they design colourful and funny socks in Galway, on the west coast of Ireland, in the middle of the beautiful Wild Atlantic Way.
Alex and Joanna are best friends who dance, laugh and work together – in any order really, as it usually happens all at once. They are the kind of people who usually wear baggy, black or grey clothes but their socks brighten up any occasion from boring business meetings to a wonderful wedding, lunch with family or party with mates.
