Happy Monday Readers, I hope you enjoyed your weekend, and now back at it! Today, The Sock Review is pleased to feature one of our most creative submissions to date; MrMiSocki: A Separated Pair. A collaborative effort, written by Munish Taneja and illustrated by AT Pratt, each sock is a stand alone design that you can pair as you wish with any of the other characters. Socki is the main character in the story (shown on the far right in the photo above) and well, we suggest you get a copy of Volume 1 to read the story in its entirety. ;) Volume 2 is still up on Kickstarter, although ends soon!
What we love about this product: As far as receiving socks, it is always a nice treat to receive in a branded box; especially in this case, as it ties the entire story together. You can see the "un-boxing" in my video below. Volume 1 entertains four key characters in the beginning of the MrMiSocki saga, and are beautifully sublimated* images on cotton crew silhouettes. Such attention to detail, even the cuff/welt has the brand name knit-in. The colors are vivid and let's just say I had fun "re-creating" my own version of the story for this post.
What is especially neat about the four separate pairs is that even though they are all different, they still make sense; the colors complement each other so you won't look out of place when you wear them. The illustrations used on the socks are quite lovely, and that is what will show above your shoe when worn; very clever.
Now back to the story...Socki goes on his quest to find his mate - through the wash cycle, where he meets some very interesting characters...does he meet his match, or is Socki taken to the dryer? You can read the entire story online here.
MrMiSocki is also on Instagram; this is where The Sock Review discovered the brand. Check 'em out on Instragram @MrMiSocki.
The Sock Review had some fun of their own; A little interpretation of part of the story. Really, we just had fun wearing the socks and making this video!
We hope you enjoyed this look into the illustrative life of Socki and the rest of the gang - check out the rest of the adventure at MrMiSocki.com.
