In June, SockGuy donated 750 pairs of socks to Artist for World Peace.
Since 2008, Artist for World Peace has partnered with The Good Hope Trust Orphanage Center in Kibosho-Umbwe, Tanzania to support the living and educational expenses of the children.
This year SockGuy was happy to participate in this great cause! Socks have been on the children’s wish list.
We can’t wait to share more pictures from the trip and the smiling kids wearing SockGuy!
Here’s Die Hard SockGuy Fan Ryan Marcyes showing off his BMX skills.
Ryan loves racing BMX because he’s a true competitor and loves the challenge of racing with other guys his own age and skill level. He also loves Mountain Biking and running because it gives him a sense of freedom.
He LUVs SockGuy because they are “by far the best feeling socks I’ve slid on.”
And he should know. Ryan served in the US Army for 29 years and has been an avid runner and mountain biker the entire time. He’s tried a lot of socks.
But with SockGuy, he has “never gotten a hotspot or a hint of a blister while wearing the socks.”
Ryan recently retired from the US Army in October of 2013 after 20 years of service. Now he lives in Green Cove Springs, FL with his wife and daughter and is attending college.
Thank you for your service to our country and we are proud to have you wear SockGuy!

The team’s mission is ”to provide motivated bicycle racers under the age of 23 with the opportunity, guidance and resources to develop into the next generation of professionals both on and off the bike.”
SockGuy is proud to sponsor of the team and to support these young riders.
And the feeling is mutual.
Todd Herriott, Director of the Hagens Berman U-23 team, told us recently, “Thanks for the support of our program- the guys LOVE the socks. And on top of that, we’re selling the same sock at our shop and everyone loves them- great product. The SockGuy socks are truly the best socks I’ve ever put on. THANKS for making such a great product.”
Thanks Todd for the LUV and for creating the opportunity for young riders to race with the national team throughout the year!

Back in 2009, when the team first started, they named the team TWENTY12 with the definite goal of taking athletes to the 2012 London Olympics.
Not only did TWENTY12 achieve the goal of taking athletes to the 2012 Olympics, but it resulted in 2 Olympic medals; gold and silver. TWENTY12 became the only U.S. based road program to achieve this.
Now the TWENTY16 team is looking ahead to the Rio 2016 Olympics. The team consists of 14 professional athletes including, numerous World, Pan Am and National champions and 5 Olympic Medalists.
TWENTY16 races primarily in the U.S but also expands in to Europe with National Team projects amounting to over 130 race days on the road and track.
And SockGuy couldn’t be more proud…to be on the team’s feet!

I just love these socks because they’re straight-up DOPE!” ~ Lex Albrecht
