BOMBAS SOCKS




BOMBAS SOCKS



Randy Goldberg and David Heath founded Bombas in 2013. The two launched the company after seeing a Facebook post that mentioned the need for socks at homeless shelters. They adopted the one-for-one business model where the company would donate one pair of socks for each one purchased. The company first received funding in 2013, raising $145,000 through the crowdsource website Indiegogo. A year later the company raised $1 million in seed funding from friends and family. The founders appeared on Shark Tank in September 2014 where they received additional funding of $200,000 from Daymond John in exchange for a 17.5% stake in the company. In 2017, the company was on track for $50 million in sales.

As of August 2018, the company has donated more than nine million pairs of socks, all of which are specially designed to make the lives of the homeless at least a little bit more comfortable.

Socks for purchase boast several engineered solutions for common sock problems such as the honeycomb arch support and blister tab. Socks donated to the homeless have an anti-microbial treatment and reinforced seams.
