Vitamin Sea or Vitimín na Mara
These socks are the winning design of 'Design your own socks competition, 2022 edition with the incredible Marion Belliot as the winner.
Inspiration behind the design:
Water, and sea in particular, has this power of making us feel alive. Swimming in the Irish Sea or the Atlantic Ocean is so refreshing, reviving. The water can sometimes be quiet and peaceful, but also deep and unfathomable, sometimes wild. People come to the coast to feel the healing effects of seawater and fresh sea air. During all seasons, Spring, Summer,
Autumn, Winter, the sea offers us beauty and unique moments.
Marion's art is inspired by road trips & hikes around all of Ireland. She carries a sketchbook everywhere she goes. She captures the unique atmosphere of a place or town at her illustration studio "Explore with Marion". She loves illustrating Irish beauty with traditional mediums and digital technologies, always experimenting!
Irish Socksciety loves all that is quirky and humorous of contemporary Ireland.
We feel that feet have lots to say, and to help them talk, we design colourful and funny socks here, in Galway, on the west coast of Ireland, in the middle of the beautiful Wild Atlantic Way.
About The Socks
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.
