SOCKSHOP was founded in 1983 by Sophie Mirman and Richard P. Ross after Mirman said “People should be able to buy socks as easily as they buy newspapers.” SOCKSHOP outlets were placed for convenience on busy city streets, in train stations and at airports, selling socks, tights and ladies’ stockings. SOCKSHOP became part of the Ruia Group in 2006 and has grown to form our biggest store yet – right here online at www.sockshop.co.uk.

Sockshop, produces a range of socks under our brand IOMI Footnurse which are designed to cater for specific conditions. We have now launched a new type of socks endorsed by the college of podiatry which help those with diabetes to manage their symptoms. They are created from bamboo fibres and are designed to mould to the legs without pinching and have smooth seams to prevent any sores that could lead to infection. Diabetics have to pay particular attention to their feet as extra sugar in the blood stream can lead to poor blood flow to the feet.
