i think a trip to florence is needed

One time during my Photography class, my teacher was talking about her trip to Florence, Italy while explaining how to print contact sheets since I take film photography.

All I was thinking of while she was explaining how beautiful a city it is was “Hey I climbed that building / Hey I was there / Hey I saw that building” during the Italian renaissance because I’m a total nerd and I need help.

Italy is officially on my bucket list of places to go before I die.

The Week of Kory. day 1

Q 1. You are the founder/creator of Taft. What was the inspiration for starting a sock company?

Kory- The inspiration for Taft came when my wife and I were traveling around Europe together. I saw so many guys rocking the sockless look so I think it was just sort of at the back of my mind the whole trip.

I remember really vividly being in Florence and watching a cobbler create the most beautiful shoes I’d ever seen and it just didn’t seem right to ruin such high quality shoes by going sockless. I knew I loved the look but I didn’t like any of the no-shows on the market.

I started doing tons of research on no-show socks and when I couldn’t find what I wanted, I knew I’d need to just create them myself. So I set out to create the best, highest-quality no-show socks on the market and I’ve been doing it ever since.
