OUR  STORY

Bombas are socks engineered and designed to look better, feel better and with a mission to help the homeless.

THE INSPIRATION FOR BOMBAS WAS FORMED WHEN WE CAME ACROSS A QUOTE THAT CHANGED EVERYTHING.

"Through our work with those in need, we know that socks are oftentimes
the most requested clothing item at homeless shelters."

- Major George Hood, Chief Communications Officer for The Salvation Army

WE STARTED TO THINK... IF TOMS DONATES A PAIR OF SHOES FOR EVERY PAIR PURCHASED... AND WARBY PARKER DONATES A PAIR OF EYEGLASSES... THEN WHY COULDN'T WE CREATE

A COMPANY THAT DONATED A PAIR OF SOCKS?

Bombas are game-changing socks that have to be felt to be believed. We set out to rethink a product that is an afterthought for most people. Athletic shoes have advanced tremendously in the last 20 years. Socks still look and feel exactly the same.

Bombas was born out of a mission to help the homeless. We're committed to making our community where we live and work a better place with every pair of socks we sell.

BOMBAS SOCK TECH

Bombas are purpose built for athletic performance and designed for extreme leisure. Each section of a Bombas sock has been carefully created to improve on years of sock complacency in the industry. Each of the parts is great, and the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

The word Bombas is derived from the Latin word for bumblebee.
Bees work together to make the hive a better place. We like that.
When we say Bee Better, we mean it as a mantra, a way of approaching every day.
It's stitched into the inside of every pair of Bombas for a reason.
It's a reminder to push yourself harder to be better at your athletic pursuits.
A reminder that these socks are engineered and designed with thought to bee better.
A reminder that you helped someone in need with your purchase.
And a reminder that we're all connected and little improvements can
add up to make a big difference.

We've partnered with Hannah's Socks, a non-profit whose sole mission is to get socks to those in need. They have a goal to distribute 225,000 socks this year, and we're here to help.

For every pair of Bombas you purchase, we'll donate a pair to Hannah's Socks. Already this year, we're committed to donating over 26,000 pairs of socks, with lots more to come. It's the reason we started this company and the motivation to keep designing and producing better socks.
