Komrads x hero on socks

Did you know that we throw away 640.000.000 pairs of jeans in Europe every year? That’s unthinkable! Komrads strives for a circular future, where we can recycle waste into new usable materials. We thought that a partnership with the sock brand Hero On Socks was a good move.

Hero On Socks started with one main focus: make people aware that there is no plan B for our planet. “We want to change the world on socks”. 

“When you wear Hero On Socks you are a real hero and you improve the world. Because a comfortable world is a better world”. With these beautiful words in mind we paid a visit to the  ladies (founders) of Hero On Socks. Two women who have a heart for our society and only want the best for our planet. We immediately saw a power with Komrads, so we decided to cooperate. 

Socks made out of your old pair of jeans

Hero On Socks founded a way to re-use these millions of old jeans. Together with #hackyourjeans and the ESG-group they were able to recycle the old jeans up to a strong and comfortable yarn of which they now also make socks. 

The socks are made out of:  

  • 22% Recycled cotton (post-consumer denim)
  • 22% Lenzing™ Tencel™
  • 42% Lenzing™ Ecovero™
  • 12% Polyamide
  • 2% Elastane

Extra fun fact: the socks are #madeinbelgium! All of this ensures a super soft, comfortable and extremely sustainable sock.
