We LOVE it when we get to share an American made company with you that really goes above and beyond making a difference! Mitscoots is a company that does just that!

Get+Give+Employ: Mitscoots Socks are Socks with a Mission!

In 2008, the future founders of Mitscoots worked as volunteers on the streets of Austin, Texas to help provide aid to the city’s many homeless. They discovered that after the needs for food and water were met, the most requested for item was a clean pair of socks.  These civil minded entrepreneurs  realized that if they could manufacture high quality socks in the USA providing as many jobs as possible, and could donate new socks to those in need, then everyone involved would benefit.

And so Mitscoots came to be. Today, Mitscoots manufactures all of it’s high quality socks in North Carolina, and packages them in Austin, Texas. The packaging jobs are given to those in need of employment, paying well above minimum wage. With every pair of socks that is purchased, Miscoots gives an identical  pair to the homeless. GET a pair of socks + GIVE to the homeless + know that someone in need is being EMPLOYed.

Mitscoots makes socks for everyone and in every style!

  68. One of the most touching things I’ve ever seen was when I worked in Philly. There was a homeless man sleeping on a bench right in the middle of Center City. It was fall, but already really, really cold and he had on slide shower sandals. Someone had gone and purchased a big package of athletic socks and just placed them near his head. It was such a small gesture, but I am sure it made a huge difference to that one man.
