How it all began
In 1986, a young retail entrepreneur,Charlie, opened a specialty sock store under the name “d.b.a. SOCKS”. He learned early on that the customers wanted a greater selection of quality, fun socks and fashion-forward hosiery than he could find. Although he and his staff bought every style in every color available, it just wasn’t enough to fill up the store or satisfy their customers.
So,they decided to design and manufacture their our own styles to fill what eventually became an eleven-store specialty chain with locations in New Orleans, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., Boston, Baltimore, Los Angeles and San Francisco. They started by focusing on design styles, materials and construction that would create a high-quality novelty socks offering.
The retail store experience put them in a unique position to understand the needs of their retail, catalog and on-line customers, making Foot Traffic one of the first sock companies to understand the social expression opportunity for socks. They grew their novelty sock line to include more men’s socks whileexpanding to cotton tights and leggings, printed tights and “on-trend” knit hosiery.Bottom line, the new designs and styles were selling in a big way!
Soon,other retailers looking for unique, quality socks, tights and hosiery began asking if they could order from them. It was during this period that they changed their name to "Foot Traffic". Over time, they phased out of the retail store business so that they could focus on creating and manufacturing the kind of innovative products their customers have now come to expect from Foot Traffic.
