About us

Our purpose is to design, produce and distribute a fun & functional sock line unlike any other in the world. Our overarching goal is to see at least one pair of Pocket Socks in every sock drawer.


Founder Evan Papel was traveling through Europe when his passport and money were stolen. Over a liter stein of fine Munich beer, the idea of the sock with a pocket materialized. Papel designed a high-quality sock and hand-sewed a zippered pocket into each pair. A unique travel security solution was born and Pocket Socks started back in 2002 as Zip It Sox.

Zip It Sox turned in to Zip It Gear and had a great run in the 2000s until the Great Recession ended the fun. In 2017, Papel couldn't stop thinking about the company that could have been, but never was. So, he started tinkering around with new designs, manufactured Passport Security® Pocket Socks and started selling online again. Based on excitement from new customers and Papel's entrepreneurial passion, he decided to re-invested in his original idea. This time, he threw a whole lot of color into the mix. The colorful fun and fashionable personal expression line was born to compliment the already successful travel security & everyday convenience


First and foremost, we make great socks. We put a ton of design time and analysis into what we're offering you including yarns from sustainable and renewable materials, ethical manufacturing conditions and wear tests over miles and miles. Then, we take it to the next level and bring your Pocket Socks to a cutting and sewing station where we essentially turn socks into garments by hand sewing zippered pockets one by one.
