New York Sock Repair & Exchange

Send your broken socks to be repaired in New York City. After your socks are fixed, they will be washed in the East River, photographed against the Manhattan skyline and returned back to you. Fixed and clean! Repairs will be made by hand, using recycled materials. You can also have your socks exchanged to socks of our other customers!

It doesn't matter how broken your socks are, we are here to help. The New York Sock Repair & Exchange service is a perfect gift for a fashionable friend. The text NYSRE18 (New York Sock Repair & Exchange) will be embroidered on the repaired socks to commemorate the repair. You can follow the the repair status of your socks online.

The service pilot is operational between August-December 2018. Send your broken socks NOW to have them repaired in time for the Holidays. During the service pilot (Q3-Q4, Summer-Fall of 2018) the service is free! The socks you send must fit a standard letter. Please let us know if you want your socks photographed next to different landmark in New York City.

Sincerely,
SockSmith Eero Yli-Vakkuri* (Ore. Ref.)
Please notify me when you send your socks.

Timeline / Details

2018-07-30 Got note of a pair of socks in transit. LW socks arrived three weeks ago. When I get five socks to work with I'll start fixing. I hope people from Europe send their socks, so that we can get a trans-atlantic sock repair & exchange going. Got a novel request to photograph a pair of socks at the Trump Tower.
2018-07-08 *Yli-Vakkuri is an apprentice SockSmith mentored by MA Minttu Sipola. Photo added. Someone leaked news of the service. No biggie.
2018-07-06 First drafts.
