A good sock is hard to find, and matching them can be even harder. That was, until we discovered this clever company saving our socks (and our sanity), one sock at a time!

It’s all thanks to dot on a sock, your ethical, colour coded sock system that will literally knock your socks off.

I’m sure we can all collectively agree that socks are the arseholes of the clothing world. They look great in the package and then, as soon as they are out free, they start to show their true colours, grow weird ‘sock bumps’ and ditch their mates.

Not cool, socks. Not cool at all.

Odd socks need a serious talking to. But sock wizard and mum-of-three Nic went above and beyond and her outcome is just brilliant!

Out of sheer folding-mismatched-sock frustration, she designed one of the best inventions we’ve come across this year – dot on a sock.

What is dot on a sock?

Put simply, they are socks. Socks with dots on each sole. Each size has a different coloured dot, making it easy to match and pair your socks quickly and easily. A game-changer when you have several kids with different size feet and don’t want to spend your spare time juggling and matching!

Plus, the socks keep their form and their sock mate for life. Now that’s some serious #couplegoals going on with these socks.

The joy that is colour coded socks

A colour coded sock system for every child!?? I don’t know about you, but this sounds more satisfying than a steaming hot cup of coffee in silence.

For real though. If I had to choose between a perfect cup of coffee and never having to look at another odd sock again, I’m going with the latter.

Sorry coffee. I do love you, I just hate odd socks more.

Say goodbye to odd socks forever

There are two sock styles – ankle and quarter crew – and five school-friendly colours across five sizes. 

  • Blue – 13+
  • Orange – 10+
  • Green – ages 8 to 10
  • Red – ages 5 -7
  • Purple – ages 2 -4

But what about the families that have two (or more) kiddies in the same sized sock? Easy peasy – just buy more of the same size! You may have a five-year-old and a six-year-old, both wearing red dot socks. Double the amount of red dot socks you buy and you’re good to go!

Did we mention no more sock bumps?

Okay, so having a dot on a sock is a great concept, right? But this is only one of the reasons we’re frothing over these colour coded socks. They are also incredibly comfortable!

They are designed with extra cushioning and soft seams so kids can wear them all day. Plus, they are built to withstand the craziness of kids and the power of the washing machine. Not only will they keep their shape, you can avoid the dreaded “Mum, there’s a bump in my sock.”

Yep, not only can you kiss odd socks goodbye, but you can also say farewell to the bloody sock bump … it’s a great time to be a mum, isn’t it?

Lightening the load for Aussie families everywhere

As we mentioned, dot on a sock is designed by an Aussie mum and it’s a family-owned business. Nic set out to do one thing – lighten the load for Aussie parents who hate odd socks as much as she does.

All socks are wrapped in minimal sustainable packaging, making them a more eco-friendly choice too. #winning

As she tells Mum Central,

If we can add a little more colour and quality time to our families’ lives, then dot on a sock has done what it set out to achieve.”

Plus, Nic and the dot on a sock team donate 10% of their revenue to Women & Girls Emergency Centre, so your purchase is staying in the local economy and helping people in our community who need a hand up.

You can pick up a 10 pair pack for $45, refill packages of 5 pairs for $25 or a sample pair for $7, all available through their website.

Get your school socks sorted

Most of us are probably knee-deep in last-minute school shopping which includes a few decent pairs of socks.

This year, make it easy on yourself for the entire school year and spend less time sorting through the odd-sock bucket by investing in dot on a sock. You will be surprised at how much time you will shave off your laundry sorting through this simple colour-coded sock system.
