The missing sock phenomenon has puzzled many of us for years. There we are trying to match our socks only to find that several pairs have a missing sock. We search the room we’re in. We search the laundry room. We look under the bed. We look everywhere, but alas the %@*#! socks are gone. One company, Throx, has come up with a solution that is sure to knock your socks off or at least keep them paired.
What’s Throx’s solution? Throx has come up with the idea of selling you not 2, but 3 socks at a time. That’s right instead of buying just a pair of socks you would buy Throx socks, which consists of 3 matching socks. If you happen to loose one sock you still have two more to match.
So, forget about that wonderful motherly advice of throwing your socks into a mesh bag in the washer and dryer to keep your pairs of socks together. Instead take a look at Throx’s current designs: Peppermint, Squiggly Zebras, Pirates of the Caribbean are available now. More designs are coming soon.
The Throx Company claims to beat the competition by at least 3 feet. What do you think? Is this really an innovative idea? Would you buy Throx in hopes to always have pair of socks at your disposal?
