Cool socks fully equipped with a unique design
Nick's approach was to design more than just a regular sock, one that would connect the city with the urban runner. The colors on the sock represent the most worn t-shirt by London City Runners. The river Thames is the heart of London Town and if you are a Londoner, it is most likely that you run along South Bank or North Bank to get your daily dose of runner’s high. The colour yellow will provide you with the visibility you need when running. Go even further with your “6k” edition Look Mate.
The conversation started one Tuesday evening after our regular run with London City Runners. Nick and I just finished our run and were about to enjoy a pint of cold Guinness in the pub when I told Nick about my plans to connect good design with socks. It was one of these talks that kept coming back to me again, even though we continued to socialize with our running mates that evening.
After doing my homework titled, “How on earth are socks made?” I visited Nick in his incredibly inspiring and spacious studio at Clapham. It is more like a playground for Nick full of futuristic projects. The idea was to start sketching a sock with an urban runner in mind. We wanted to engineer a sock that would be ideal to wear with a nice suit during the day and take it to a run in the evening and sprint over Millennium Bridge.
Nothing beats a new sock; and what a sock.
