Before launching Neon Bandits in June of 2015, we spent over 18 months trying to find a factory partner that could produce the highest quality socks. We didn’t want just any socks to have our name on them; we wanted to make a quality sock that met (or exceeded) the durability and functionality of the largest brands in the space. And over the past year and a half, based on the feedback that we have received from customers, teams and partners, we have done just that. A major point of differentiation (and one that us sock geeks love to boast about)...

Growing up in Boston, you know that Spring officially starts once Marathon Monday rolls around. Arguably the best sporting event in a city obsessed with sports, the Boston Marathon is a special race that starts out in Hopkinton, Massachusetts and weaves its way through the crowded suburban Boston streets and finishes in the heart of downtown Boston. I have run one marathon in my life and have had the urge to run Boston for a few years now. The race is more than a race when you are from Boston and one that is difficult to describe for those that...

As we outlined when we launched our first line in June, we like to have meaning behind our product names. While we had some fun creating names for The Dawson, The Ozz and The Flip, it's safe to say that we had just as much fun coming up with the names for our new socks. Without further ado, the meaning behind our latest styles names:  The Meadow- Named after where Dan started his youth basketball career, and Sammy moonlighted as a kick-ball captain, “The Meadow” is named after Dan and Sammy’s elementary school, Broadmeadow.  The 781- In tradition of playing homage to where...

Over the weekend, we had a chance to sit down with our great friend, Matt Brazis, who is a rising star in the Chicago Cubs Minor League Organization. Matt gave us some insight into what it is like playing in the Minors: Playing in the Cubs Organization has been a great experience, and one that I recognize not many people get the chance to go through. Being a part of such a storied franchise with incredible fans and great staff is all I could ask for.  The Cubs take great pride in their minor league system, and spare no expense at all the...

The winter is here. It is only a matter of time before the snow starts falling in our hometown of Boston, which will make it more difficult for us to be able to collect fun outdoor-centric content. As we detailed a few weeks back, we have our Spring line coming out in February so in an effort not to have models rocking shorts and socks in the snow, we rallied our friends to do a small photoshoot with our new designs before the weather changed. After dialing up a perfect mid-fifties day in December, we hosted our photoshoot outside in the Fenway...
