Zkano Organic Cotton Socks Review and Giveaway!

If there is one thing I love, it is a great pair of comfy socks! When I am at home, I always have on a pair of socks, I prefer to wear socks to bed and especially prefer that my socks be soft and comfortable, but also snug(at least sometimes). I put a lot of miles on my socks and a lot of them are just plain worn out so when the fabulous gal, Gina, over at Zkano said she would send me some of her awesome organic cotton socks to try I was thrilled and my feet couldn’t wait for them to arrive! Here is what that generous lady sent me: two pairs of the Tempo design(one in white, one in natural) and 2 pairs of the Venture design(again, one in white and one in natural). They were so soft and new and just plain perfect(I know people….they are just socks, but as I have said before-I don’t get out much) that I almost didn’t even want to wear them(well almost). I slid the first pair on my feet and could feel the difference right away. Organic cotton is so soft and cozy and you really can’t appreciate it until you wear it. I wish I had more of it, but since it is a bit pricey at times I enjoy the items I do have that much more, including these socks! From the Zkano “mission” page on their site:

A Good Stance
Born from a second generation of family sock makers…

Zkano is the wholesome product of a revolutionary journey back to a purer, softer, more natural feeling sock.

We make all our socks from the highest quality 100% certified organic ring-spun cotton, grown without the use of pesticides, chemicals or toxins. We do this so they are more comfortable, more durable and better all around – for the environment, our growers, our knitters, and for you.

Our socks are sweatshop-free, and finished without the use of harmful heavy metal dyes.

A return to better philosophies, better processes and better results, Zkano socks come to you with an ultimate promise to always feel soft, cushy, and like absolute heaven on your feet.

Of course I love that these socks are made with organic cotton and that no harmful anything is used in the process of producing them, but what Zkano can also be very proud of is that their socks are sweatshop-free! A good stance? I would say so! Personally, I love standing in my new Zkano socks…and sitting, and sleeping, oh and walking, I love to wear them when I go for a walk. They are of the highest quality and have been worn and washed several times already and still look almost as good as the day they arrived at my door. And I can tell you from my few interactions with Gina, they take pride in their work and put customer service on the top of their priority list!
And now the FUN part…….the GIVEAWAY!! Yes, that is right…..Gina is so darned generous she didn’t just want me to have some of her awesome organic socks, but she wants a reader to win some, too! The winner will get to choose 4 pairs of socks-your choice!!! Here is how to get entries:
