I’m not going to sit here and say Bombas socks are the best. They feel good on my feet but a lot of socks feel good on my feet. They seem well made but a lot of socks seem well made. They look cool but a lot of socks look cool.

But here’s the difference with Bombas (which is derived from the Latin word for bumblebee): For every pair of socks you buy, they donate a pair of socks to a person in need. (They’re like Toms for socks, and so far they’ve donated more than half a million socks to the homeless and/or needy.)

As far as I know, Adidas doesn’t do this. Nike doesn’t do this. Puma doesn’t do this. New Balance doesn’t do this. And until those brands do, you should choose Bombas – for at least a few of the pairs of socks in your sock drawer. It’s an easy way to help the world a little bit. And helping the world a little bit is a good thing. Whether you’re a bumblebee or a person.
