Years before I started blogging in this space, my son Daniel told me about Bombas. I had asked him what he wanted for an upcoming birthday and he had sent me a link to his favorite sock brand. “Not only are they great socks,” my son told me, “but for every item purchased, another is donated to someone experiencing homelessness.” Now not only is my son’s sock drawer full of Bombas, but so is mine. In fact, Bombas have become the socks I live in and one of my favorite gifts to give to others.

I’ve been wearing Bombas running socks for years. In fact, they’re all I wear for my workouts and walks. They’re such a nice thickness, and they last and last.
I’m wearing Bombas’ women’s lightweight running ankle socks in the color option galaxy, but they come in several other fun colorways, too. Some of their other running socks are cushioned, but this lightweight running ankle sock is cushion-free, but still soft and comfortable, with special performance yarns that wick away sweat while you run. I guess you could say they keep me light on my feet. 😃
These ankle socks come in three sizes, small, medium and large. And I find them to run very true to size. I wear a size 9.5 shoes, and I’m wearing the medium socks very comfortably.
It’s just as important to have good socks for exercise as it is good shoes. The right socks should fit you nicely without binding, bunching or slipping. And the best socks will also help keep your feet dry while you work up a sweat. Bombas also has socks that meet your specific needs for the workouts you do. For instance, they have these ankle socks with grippers on the bottom, perfect for your barre, Pilates or yoga class. And I recently discovered that Bombas also has Merino wool blend socks, which are perfect for hiking.
I’ve been committed to wearing wool and wool blend socks for hiking ever since I backpacked a section of the Appalachian Trail. Wool socks keep your feet temperature regulated and dry.
And these Merino wool blend hiking quarter socks have another great feature that helps me accumulate the miles. They have a Honeycomb Support System that cradles the arch of your foot, like a firm but comfortable hug around your midfoot.
Right now I’m enjoying the ankle length hiking socks, but when the weather gets cooler I’ll probably opt for the Merino wool blend calf socks. Bombas also has Merino wool blend knee socks and no-shows.
Not only do my Bombas socks keep me moving, but they help me recover from a long day of not moving. When I spend too much time at my desk, I can have some circulation issues. So Bombas compression socks really help relieve the ache and get the blood pumping again.
I’m wearing the Bomba’s women’s everyday compression socks with 15-20mmhg compression. Mine are in pink pearl, but they also come in quite a few other color options.
I sometimes wear them while I work at my desk. Of course, I also try to remember to get up and move around throughout the day. Sitting at a desk all day is the new smoking, they say!
I also wore compression socks on my overseas flight recently, and they really helped keep the swelling down. Bombas also has performance compression socks with 20-30mmhg compression. That extra support is great if you enjoy running, cycling, and training for any big goals.
I love that purchasing Bombas also helps others. From the very beginning, Bombas has donated a pair of socks to someone experiencing homelessness when a pair is purchased. That’s because socks are the #1 requested clothing item in homeless shelters. To date, Bomba has donated more than one million items on behalf of their customers like my son and me. I like that.
But I also love giving Bombas to the people I know and love. Almost every Christmas I give Bombas socks to my kids…because they request them! And last year I gave this adorable Baby’s First Year Sock 8-Pack to a young friend who had had a baby.
This adorable gift set includes four pairs of small, comfy socks for baby’s first six months and four pairs of slightly larger grippy socks for months six to twelve when baby is toddling around. Isn’t that fun? And practical at the same time! So of course, I had to get Abigail and Andrew a Baby’s First Year Sock 8-Pack for the baby girl they’re expecting in December.
You’ll find lots of fun socks for children of all ages at Bomba. And they make great presents for the children in your life, but also those you may be purchasing for through a charitable organization.
The best news? Bombas has given me a unique code just for you! New Bombas customers can use code DRESSED20 at checkout and get 20% off your order. Check out the full selection of Bombas socks, but I’ve shared some of my favorites in the shopping widget below.
Sincere thanks to Bombas for sponsoring today’s post. But remember, I only ever accept sponsorships from brands I already use or wear and truly enjoy. Bombas have been the socks that I live in and give to others for years. And I believe you’ll love them, too.

I often give socks as a gift. Everybody wears them. Everybody needs them. And most of us don’t like to buy them for ourselves even though we need them. Buying someone a pair of socks is a great way to meet a practical need in a loving and gracious way.
You know, that’s really what Jesus called His disciples to do in John 13 after He had washed their dirty, dust feet. He had met a practical need in a loving and kind way, and He asked that they go and do the same for one another. How could you show love and grace to someone today by meeting a practical need? Yes, you could buy them a pair of socks. But you could also pick up their kids from school, mow the grass, help them organize their pantry, drive them to an appointment, etc. Let’s show grace and love to someone today by meeting a practical need.
Then He *poured water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded…If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. ~ John 13:5,14
