Man oh man am I excited about today's POP. As I have expressed in the past, I love out-of-the-ordinary socks. I don't know why, but obnoxious feet coats put me in a really good mood, so you better believe it didn't take long for me to be sold on this project.
Running his second Kickstarter campaign, Zach Crain of Freaker USA is back at it again with his ridiculous designs and ideas. The first go around, he was able to bring to life his one-size-fits-all bottle insulator. Now he's aiming for the production of 127 USA made sock designs, and I'll be the first to tell you that they are glorious.
Calling them Freaker Feet, Zach's socks are made 100% here in the States, with the vision of creating more American jobs. With a large selection of designs, Freaker Feet has at least one pair that we could all go after. The selection includes the Boutique designs, Greetings From designs, Team Spirits designs, and the Concussion designs.
Each category has its own appeals. The Boutiques are all about attitude. This includes the likes of flamingos, beards, the Angry Cat, T-Rex, surfers, and more. The Greetings From represent the States of America, each showcasing the beauty of each state/territory. The Team Spirits, pending licensing, brings out the college fan in most of us, while the Concussion is for the NFL fanatics, representing the colors of each team.
It's no secret that the Freaker Feet crew has an ambitious goal. They're out to raise $250,000 in order to make this segment of the business happen, and I hope they do. As noted on the project page, the production of these socks will help support American supply and manufacturing companies. Freaker Feets are produced thanks to a combination of companies providing the supplies from North Carolina, Mississippi, Arkansas, Alabama, Louisiana, and Georgia.
To me and the other 1,500+ backers, Freaker Feet are more than just designed socks. They are a form of expression. They are loud, funny, and obnoxious. They help show off our favorite schools (Go Vols) and the pride that we have for our states. Most importantly, they'll make us feel good.
Potentially, Freaker Feet could become a one stop shop for those of us that rock a mean sock game. It also has the potential of helping our economy, leading to more jobs.
Overall, the thought of wearing Freaker Feet POPs.
