Our Story

The best of Australia at your feet

Our founders Emma and Evi are a couple who know the power of a great pair!

After meeting while both at University in Canberra, these two made it official and united forces.

Where did Capital Socks begin?

Where all good sock stories do: in pursuit of the perfect pair...

On the one hand, Emma and Evi could find cheap, low-quality (and honestly, boring) socks, and on the other; an array of better-quality, yet costly ones. Hands up if you've had this problem!

Where was the in-between Goldilocks level of "just right" they wondered? Socks that were affordable, high-quality and uniquely designed? It was this modest need that inspired the creation of Capital Socks.

Iconic sock stories

A passion for our nation's capital (and all the "best bits" of Australiana) are captured in each pair of socks we dream up.

We have a mission to create "treats for your feet" - socks that are not only fresh and colourful, but reflect our unique surroundings.

Whether that's floral and fauna or quirky designs, our socks will help transform your outfit, or make that unique birthday gift or surprise present.

Life's too short for boring socks, Capital Socks lets your personality and style shine through in a fun, bright way each day!

Original & exclusive local artist designs

The artists behind our bespoke designs are at the heart of what we do!

We're passionate about creating experiences and representing our culture and community.

That's why we've teamed up with the incredible talent of local illustrators Channel Kristen, Emma Maja and Douglas Lima.

It's also why we're able to offer original and exclusive designs in our collection that you won't find anywhere else - hurrah!

But wait, there's more to this story

Although the Capital Socks journey began with the magic in Canberra, we are constantly evolving and adding new pieces to our growing collection.

We welcome design inspiration and ideas, so if there's something interesting or exciting from around Australia that you'd love to see on your socks, let us know!

If your idea makes the cut, we'll give you a pair free and a $50 voucher!

We know that sometimes you want to be your own artist, and have added a customised sock option to our range for bulk orders. Just reach out via email or phone to learn more.

You've heard of great hair days - we're wishing you great pair day, the Capital Socks way!
