If there is anything worse than wet socks, it is cold feet. Winter is here and we are all braving the cold with our winter coats, pullovers, hoodies, and pullovers. Even for a colourful country like India, as winter comes around, our clothes begin to merge with the monochrome as most of us naturally start drifting towards the blacks, greys, and the navy blues.
To beat the winter blues, however, spruce up your ensemble and make your pair of socks a statement piece; let them stand out, let them be colourful, playful, and vibrant.
Here are some homegrown sock brands that will get you excited about going out in the cold or even keep your spirits high as you snuggle in your fuzzy blanket.
If you love theme-based and experimental socks, Balenzia might just be the brand for you. With stark prints and themes like Poker, Tokidoki, and Justice League amongst others, their collection is one to watch out for. They specialise in high-quality socks and have gym, wool, and anti-skid socks. You can also get your hands on their gift boxes and personalised socks.

‘Fresh Like Mint and Classic Like Oak’ is what Mint&Oak’s brand stands for. They hope that with their socks, you will be able to bring out your true personality as they keep a balance between classic old school socks and quirky socks so that you don’t have to struggle to choose one. Personally speaking, their Zesty Lemon Socks are our favourite from their collection.

You can customise hand-embroidered motifs and even get your initials. Their socks are also super-affordable and would make for perfect gifts for your friends.
