Everyone should own something MINT.
First class and fresh, and on the finer side of life – like high thread count sheets - we hope to make something both accessible and utile without having to crawl back into bed just when you got out. Utilitarian items are aplenty but we settled on socks.
The best thing about socks is that you always get more bang for your buck even when you purchase just one model, because socks are always sold as a pair. So…you actually just got two of something ie. two socks.
About us – briefly.
Us is one. Us, as in MINT Socks, is female-owned and operated by long time bike industry person living under the moniker, Suzette (as in crêpe/her). There’s a whole other story there; link to that story is provided at end.
Suffice it to say, years of sales and marketing in the cycling industry led ultimately to the creation of this small business originally built on the idea that everyone deserves to own something luxurious and useful at an affordable price. Since inception, Covid came, supply chain issues followed, and shipping costs increased ten-fold. Thus, we too apologize if you've been with us from the start and have seen our price points rise. The increase is literally a matter of survival.
Some designs will stay; some will go and some are limited edition - one run only. Some will stick around because her revered dealers like to reorder. One thing is both certain and constant – and that is change. Though trends, models and colors will change, MINT quality will not.
So if you like what you experience when you don your first pair of MINTs socks, rest assured there is more of that to come.
IT’S TIME TO GET MINT[ED].
$Twenty four will get you a pair of newly minted socks. We’ve washed ours hundreds of times and we can’t seem to make them sag, deform, or discolor. We definitely can’t spin cycle the shape out of them. Speaking of spin cycle: if you want your MINTs to maintain their height, don't put them in the dryer!
These days twenty-four bucks is not a ton of coin for finely knit threads but it's still twenty-four bucks that could be spent on tacos. So if you choose to buy MINTs instead of tacos, then thank you.
We also give back. For every pair of socks, a percentage goes to the National Interscholastic Cycling Association, also known as NICA. Jump here to our SpinCycle News to read more about NICA.
Just to note...when our socks ship directly from us to you they’ll arrive in an uber mod, reusable, button-and-string-tie box – that is, until we run out. There’s an opt-out option when you order if you prefer no packaging. Once those boxes are gone, packaging will be minimized because we care about the planet.
Remember, we support NICA and their amazing work to get #morekidsonbikes
