About Us

Who we are

We may be the world’s first 100% recycled sock, but you can trust us when we say we know a thing or two about the industry!

We are extremely proud to be a SockShop company, one of the biggest names in online retail in the UK, that has done very little else but live and breathe socks since 1983.

When we created TORE we applied our 40 years of knowledge and expertise to ensure you are getting the best out there.

Our Socks

TORE socks are made from 100% recycled materials and certified by the Textile Exchange Organisation.

Our socks offer the perfect blend of undeniable comfort and hypoallergenic properties (cotton) combined with durability and reduced absorbency (polyester).

Textile waste and recycled plastic bottles are collected and spun into yarn in our certified factory and woven into new socks, using non-harmful dyes.

Made from 100% recycled materials

Each pack of socks saves

Introducing the world's first 100% recycled sock! We are committed to making small changes to create a better world


Every single element used in the production, packaging and distribution of our socks is made up of recycled materials.

A typical 3 pair pack of TORE saves on average 1,050 litres of water, in comparison to traditional cotton socks. That's the equivalent of one person drinking 1.5 litres of water per day for almost 2 years!

Each 3 pair pack of TORE socks is made using on average 2.4 plastic bottles and also industrial textile waste, diverting them from landfills and our oceans.

It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement
