Socks Kick is a retail and wholesaler company in East Jordan, Michigan. We sell and distribute socks. I, Baris, manage the company with my wife Cigdem.
I first came to East Jordan as a Rotary exchange student in 2005. After spending a year, I realized that Michigan is full of warm-hearted people who live in very cold weather conditions. Since my exchange year, I kept close contact with my host parents. Over the years, they attended my wedding in Istanbul and even came to my son’s birth. About 2 years ago I came back to East Jordan to visit and I brought socks as gifts. Everyone loved them and asked how they could get more. It was then I had the idea of selling very warm socks suitable for the freezing weather in Northern Michigan.
We started Socks Kick in 2017. My wife and I first formed the start-up and a few months later we established a 7,000-sq/ft. warehouse and a showroom right in the heart of East Jordan.
We have a family business of manufacturing socks in Istanbul with an experience of more than 35 years. My wife and I handled production and marketing there. We do the full cycle of production; starting from knitting, finishing, packaging, inspecting, marketing and exporting throughout European countries such as Germany, Denmark, U.K., France and Austria.
Craftsmanship is about the process, not the end result. We want each pairs of socks to sell the next pair. Our socks are knitted on authentic vintage machines using only the finest quality yarns and made for a superior fit and finish. They provide a refined feel that is immediately noticeable to the touch. Our manufacturing company specialises in 3 gg and 6 gg heavy knit socks production. We always make sure that we provide the best service to our customers with great quality products.
Since 2010, our factory was certified by Oeko-Tex, which is an independent testing, and certification system for textile products from all stages of production (fibers, yarns, including accessories) along the textile supply chain. The socks we make are tested for harmful substances and we make sure to follow environmentally friendly production.
Our goal is to expand statewide and nationally. Our next step will be to move some of the production from Turkey to here so that we can have MADE IN U.S.A. products. With production in the USA we will be able to create more jobs locally. We will always move forward and be the family company with the professional business attitude and ethics. We will keep improving our products quality, services we provide, our employees and the environment.
