K. Bell: How long have you been in business?
The Sock Market: We have been in business for 23 years.

KB: How would you describe your website/store to a first time visitor?
SM: Amazement comes to mind when visitors first come to one of our three stores. The colors, the variety and the virtual library of socks let the visitor find just the right sock for every occasion.

KB: What makes people come back to your store?
SM: People come back to our store because they can find socks that perhaps they can’t find anywhere else and the store has a fun, uplifting feel. Visitors can spend their time with no pressure finding that special sock.

KB: What is your current K. Bell best seller?
SM: Our best selling K. Bell sock is without a doubt the 3D socks. The Shark Sock (61516) is our number one seller.

KB: What are your current favorite legwear trends? How about your least favorite legwear trends?
SM: I have no least favorite legwear trends and my favorite legwear trend would be the wild knee high socks with crazy designs and wording. I also think that K. Bell is doing a great job with fun men’s socks.

KB: What has been your most unusual request for legwear?
SM: Nothing surprises me concerning an unusual request of legwear but perhaps the request for Orange Buddhist Monk Socks might be stretching it.

KB: Where do all the lost socks go?
SM: It has been said that the Loch Ness Lost Sock Monster lurks in everyone’s house and this perpetuates the shopping for socks at The San Francisco, The Los Angeles and The Las Vegas Sock Markets.

Next time you find yourself in any of the aforementioned cities make sure to stop in and visit the great folks over at The Sock Market, where you will find a great selection of K. Bell socks!!!

Have you even gone to a city and found a store that you just love, are able to find exactly what you’re looking for, and wish you could take home with you? Well here’s another to add to your list, one of our favorites, Sock Dreams in Portland, Oregon.

We asked owner Niq, to answer a few questions for us about their shop:

K. Bell: 1. How long have you been in business?
Sock Dreams: Almost 11 Years

KB: How would you describe your website/store to a first time visitor?
SD: We have a never ending assortment of socks with something for just about everyone, complete with honest opinions and sizing tips.

SD: an amazing selection along with great customer service, good prices and free shipping.

SD: The Peacock Feather knee high, followed closely by the Button Ribbed OTKs.

KB: What are your current favorite legwear trends? How about your least favorite legwear trends?
SD: I’m loving the modern take on Victorian styles I’ve been seeing more of lately. Least favorite would be a tie between Jeggings and the distressed/ripped look with high price tags.

KB: What has been your most unusual request for legwear?
SD: you don’t really want to know and thankfully I seem to have forgotten.

KB: Where do all the lost socks go?
SD: I used to believe they went into the mysterious space outside the washbasket in the machine, but now that I have a front loader that isn’t possible yet they still vanish. If you find out please tell me because I miss them.
