When a sock-loving couple (Thomas and Jess) along with their best friend (Bassam) combined their talents to create socks that the world could really get excited about, Uptown Sox was born.
No matter the occasion, no matter your style, Uptown Sox has your feet covered. Highlighting life's most special moments is what we're all about.
Established in 2016, the Uptown Sox team has been dedicated to providing you with fun, curated socks that are fabricated from high quality yarn content. Our values lie in creating socks we are truly proud of.
Thomas has a passion for entrepreneuship and connecting with people. His dedication towards building meaningful relationships stems from his prior occupation as a personal support worker. Thomas wears many hats (and socks) as well as takes care of our day-to-day operations. He also oversees the quality control of our socks to ensure that specific standards are met before our socks get to you.
Jess grew up with a paintbrush in her hand. With a curious mind and a passion for the visual arts, she is dedicated to cultivating our brand. Jess has a Bachelor's Degree in Interior Design and a Master's Degree in Architecture. Prior to owning Uptown Sox, she worked in the Interior Design sector. Jess directs all of the creative aspects of Uptown Sox. She designs all of our socks and applies the principles gained from her education and prior design experience to our sock patterns.
Bassam is a compassionate people-person and has exceptional management skills. He has a diploma in Business Accounting and over 10 years of experience managing teams of various sizes. Bassam is a true leader and takes care of our back-end operations as well as client relations.
