April 21, 2022 UPDATE
We have a new new colorway (Black with white) of our "GLORY TO UKRAINE" Crying Heart Sock available for PRESALE through Sunday April 24, 2022.
March 6, 2022
Watching from the safety of our lil' boot shop half a world away... we obviously continue to be horrified by the senseless and unprovoked war we're witnessing in Ukraine. Their people need the world to continue to step up and support their existential fight to keep their homeland free, as well as their significant and immediate humanitarian needs so... we're gonna do what we can do... and sell some godamn socks.
Our initial PRESALE ran for two weeks - ending midnight the eve of Sunday March 20th. In total we sold 1,152 pairs of our "Glory to Ukraine" Crying Heart Socks to over 600 individual persons. We placed an order with our California production partner the following day (March 21st), and hope to have every last pair packed and shipped by the end of April 2022.
Monies were ($5,000 CAD as of April 21, 2022) and will continue to be donated to the CANADA-UKRAINE FOUNDATION'S UKRAINE HUMANITARIAN APPEAL. Full details and receipts to follow.
Our CRYING HEART (penned by our good friend, and frequent collaborator Matthew Houston) is present on the outside & inside of each sock shaft.
White with black heel & toe with two half inch stripes (matching blue and yellow of Ukraine's national flag) across each cuff.
April 21, 2022 UPDATE: We've added a second colorway - Black with white heel & toe, with two half inch stripes (matching blue and yellow of Ukraine's national flag) across each cuff, which will be available for PRESALE until midnight Sunday April 24th.
The left side of each foot will read a woven "GLORY TO UKRAINE".
The right side of each foot will read a woven "FUCK PUTIN", 'cause... enough said.
Pima Cotton Blend. Athletic Rib. Padded underfoot.

All profits (proceeds after production, fulfillment and shipping costs) will be donated in full to Ukrainian humanitarian causes. Receipts will be provided.
Our initial PRESALE ran from Sunday March 6th to March 20th, 2022, and on March 21st, we placed our order with our SoCal production partner. We hope to have all socks shipped/ available for pickup no later than April 30th, 2022.
Our followup (Black w/ white colorway) PRESALE will run from now until midnight Sunday April 24th. The following day we'll place our production order, and number of pairs sold will dictate ship date, but... we'd expect to have this 2nd and final batch shipped/ available for pickup no later than the third week of May 2022.
