About

SOCKSI Milano is born from the research and the passion for high craftsmanship and Italian style.
Born in Turin, Valentina is now a Milanese by adoption. After many years spent in Paris following her husband, she has started exporting Italian know-how beyond the Alps.
Valentina’s inspiration comes from her busy life of a mum of two. This inspiration is evident in the design that she offers at SOCKSI – comfortable shoes featuring a contemporary and elegant look at the same time.
Her production is a high quality custom-made shoe that combines style, femininity and comfort. There is nothing more contemporary than tradition.

It's Socksi!

Socski was born on an unexpected evening. A friend of mine lost her house keys and came to ask me for hospitality. Between small talk and a glass of wine I told her about my project, I showed her the boots just arrived and I told her that I was looking for the name for my brand but that I could not find it. She put on a boot and looks at me and says “Vale but they are so beautiful and so soft like wearing a sock. We looked each other and we said: Socksi, like a sock! it’s beautiful, it’s short, it’s sexy and it’s Socksi !

Collaborations

Tra Socksi e Moye è nato un’amore. In esclusiva per Socksi, Tatiana di Moye ha disegnato i sacchetti e le scatole. Le frange con le sue impunture , segno distintivo dell’artigianalità di Socksi e i ghepardi in pieno stile di Moye si fondono insieme per dar vita alla collezione Moye x Socksi. Le due sorelle colombiane Tatiana, ormai italiana di adozione e la mano creativa di Moye e Maria la parte produttiva hanno creato una bellissima collezione di carte da parati che ci portano a scoprire il neralismo colombiano. Una scoperta della Colombia dalle Ande agli Oceani. Un viaggio nel realismo magico colombiano evocato dai disegni botanici e faunistici delle carte da parati e degli accessori. L’energia della Jungle, Manigua, vi conquisterà con i suoi colori e sapori. Moye con la sua collezione vuole Celebrare la fragilità della natura e ricordarne il suo valore.

In this moment in time, we are drowned with tons of brands with “faux” facades that do not walk the talk, like its popularly said. Dressing up was once a matter to send time and reflection on. All apparel was once chosen and created specially for a client. Now it is generic and disposable contributing to the environmental crisis, the exploitation of underpaid labor and the psychological disease of consumerism. There is still a silver-lining and it lives where artisanal work prevails. Where the “Savoir Faire” is the result of decades of tradition. SOCKSI is a brand of footwear that walks this talk! Based in Milan, SOCKSI creates handcrafted footwear with the best quality suede in an array of rich colours, respecting Italian artisanal tradition; the « Made in Italy » to the core. One can customise a pair with specific measurements and materials or get a piece that is in stock. Footwear of outmost quality and design, pieces that are timeless and elegant in a natural way. This honest way of creating beautiful products that last, marries MOYE’s values of social, ethical and environmental responsibility. When two brands have a common point, even if their specialties are different, a feeling of collaboration sprouts. In this case, it flourished as a frisky design that MOYE created for SOCKSI with the gorgeous staple fringes that characterizes the Italian brand and the spirited jaguar ever present in the Colombian brand. The playful “dance” of the jaguar between the fringes is the graphic image that now stands for SOCKSI. Check them out ….. and find out more about our shared ideas.
