About Us

When we stepped off the school bus,
we were wearing Concord 11s.


By the time we reached the hallway, our earliest t-shirt designs were for sale. One of us took their first job at a Vans store just to customize more sneakers, while the other was featured in Sole Collector before he was old enough to drive.

Two sneakerhead kids who later met as industrial design students, we noticed a demand for socks in the streetwear community.

APTHCRY was born.

Fast forward (through countless trial and error) to today. Our unique mix of fashion and industrial design allows us to create socks that are both culturally inspired and technically superior. We pour our energy, experience, and self-expression into crafting the kind of socks we’d want to wear.

While we continue to push our craftsmanship to enhance fit and feel, we work exclusively with artists who share our passion for quality, collaborative designs. Whether you’re slipping on our everyday essentials, limited editions, or next collaboration, each sock was designed for the same purpose: your sneakers.
