SOCKSHOP announces UK’s first sock vending machine


Leading legwear retailer SOCKSHOP are on a mission to champion socks as the unsung sartorial hero of the fashion industry. They believe that secondary to the shoe, a good pair of socks can really make a difference. They make an average shoe, an amazing looking shoe. A bad fitting shoe, a bearable shoe. A long day, a comfortable day. A cold day, a warm day. A hot day, a cool day.

Good socks make the difference. Good socks make you Feel good from the feet up.

With over 30 years of experience in sock know-how, family run business SOCKSHOP are known for designing, innovating and producing socks with purpose, whether it is function or fashion. They sell a pair of socks worldwide every 4 seconds and boast the world’s largest sock offering!

This February, SOCKSHOP are excited to unveil the first SOCKSHOP vending machine, the first ever sock only vending machine in the UK, located at Stratford, London’s busy travel hub. Making good socks accessible to all, whenever needed!

The SOCKSHOP vending machine will offer a wide selection of SOCKSHOP socks, retailing at £3.99 per pair.

Commenting on the installation, Director of Retail, Amit Ruia said:
“Our first store opened at a London tube station back in the 80’s to make buying socks as easy as buying a newspaper. This ground-breaking concept is still embedded in our culture and almost 40

years later we’re thrilled to be launching the first sock specific vending machine in the UK, exclusively with Transport for London.

By bringing the SOCKSHOP vending machine to one of the busiest stations in London we are presenting our customers with a fantastic range of products in a convenient location.

Our aim is to make their long day a more comfortable one, their cold day a warm day, to give them good socks that make them Feel Good From The Feet Up”
