Whether you’re catching the mother of all tube rides, grinding your first frontside 5-0, going for a clutch backside double-cork 1080, or making the call mid-run that it’s time for that triple tailwhip, we know it’s important for you to dial in and make the absolute most of these transcendent moments. Sure everyone’s grillin’ you, but who cares? You thrive under pressure. You got this. And we have your back.
KINKUNSHU embodies the spirit of change in your aspirational evolution, because we know your game is getting better all the time. That’s why we name our socks after an extreme sport trick and include a basic tip that can help you to do it. We also share a little about the inspiration behind the colors so you have some insights into their trippy associations. We post regularly to social media to share great content and inspire you because we want to stay engaged and keep you motivated. We do these things because we support your ambitious pursuits, acknowledge your mad efforts, and want you to be the very best you can be.
We design our socks here in the US and have them made in Japan. Why? Because the Japanese have their act together. Remember the spotless locker room and thank you note they left (in Russian) at the 2018 World Cup after losing to Belgium? Total class. And who won the bid to host the 2020 Summer Olympics? Japan of course (skateboarding will be an event for the first time ever, so here’s a tip: “Godzilla ate my skateboard!” in Japanese is “Gojira ga ore no suke-tobo-do o tabeta zo!”. The real kicker as to why our stuff is made there is because we were blown away by the spirit and skill of our Japanese manufacturers. They’ve been making socks for generations, and that experience is evident in every KINKUNSHU sock. You can see and feel it when you hold a pair in your hand - just imagine how they’ll feel on your feet. From Japan, our socks are shipped to our distribution centers in California and New York where they are then shipped to you and other action sport athletes and enthusiasts around the world.
