6x - LGBTQ - Homeless Sport Ankle Sock

£55.00

According to The PROUD Trust, LGBTQ+ youth are more likely to find themselves homeless than their non LGBTQ+ peers, making up to 24% of the youth homeless population.

When you buy a pair of Stand4Socks, you’re giving a pair to someone who is homeless.

Socks are one of the most requested items at homeless shelters, which is why Stand4Socks manufacture thick and antibacterial socks, the most suitable sock to give away.

Bamboo 

Bamboo socks are super soft, being good both for the wearer and the environment. Bamboo fibre is naturally antibacterial and moisture wicking, which means your feet will be kept healthy and cool. As a material, it’s also 100% biodegradable. Last but not least, bamboo represents the fastest growing plant on our planet. It requires 10% less land area to grow when compared to cotton! 

Sport Ankle
This functional sports sock benefits from a lighter reinforced support throughout but is still breathable on top, while avoiding rubs across the base. With arch support across the ridge for better grip. Also Stand4’s Y-tech on the heel of the ankle for closer fit and comfort. 
 
About the socks Stand4Socks give to homeless people

Stand4Socks researched this extensively, working closely with the community they wanted to support. The socks need to be hard wearing, as homeless people typically don’t have the luxury of fresh socks each day. That’s why they made them black & grey to show less wear, used thick full terry cotton for the warm and last, soaked them in antibacterial so they don’t need to be changed as often. Then last but not least, Stand4Socks reinforced the heel & toe parts for better comfort and durability. 

Treat your feet to a pair of Stand4 Socks and know a person experiencing homelessness will receive a new pair too. 

For most of us, socks are an everyday item we don’t give a lot of thought to. But for people experiencing homelessness, fresh socks are a hard-to-come-by luxury. Since people in the community often walk many miles each day, old pairs soon wear out, which is bad news for foot health. 

And of course, you wouldn’t pass on a secondhand pair of socks. All of this means they’re the most requested item at homeless shelters. 

Stand4 Socks came up with a solution. Their “buy one, give one” model gets much-needed socks to the homeless charities they partner with. These are different to the socks they sell, specially designed to be antibacterial and long-lasting with durable seams. 

A lot of thought goes into the designs for their own range too. Slip your feet into pairs of brightly coloured, uniquely patterned socks with features like arch support and top quality textiles that stay hole-free for longer. 

Everything by Stand4 Socks is also made from sustainably sourced Oeto-Tex-certified yarns, produced in ethical conditions and arrives at your door in fully compostable packaging.
