Review: Dreamers & Schemers Socks

I am always on the lookout for a new pair of boot socks. I just haven't found a pair that I absolutely love. Zocks? Ok, but sometimes just too thin and not substantial; they don't feel like socks. Noble Outfitters Over the Calf Peddies? I really like them, especially with my paddock boots and half chaps, but they're so long- a weird problem for me to have. And the foot is a little too thick for my tall boots. Sockwell Circulator socks? I love these, but they're a hair too thick for my tall boots. And, I'll be honest, when I destroyed my current pair, I just didn't see any colors that I liked or wanted.

So when I saw Dreamers & Schemers array of socks- I had to try them. I love patterned/sassy socks (BlueQ socks are the bomb), and actually struggled to pick just 2  pairs of socks. After hemming and hawing, I narrowed it down to 2 patterns and ordered.

  • Awesome material- a nice compromise between the thin, not really there Zocks and thicker "normal" socks. 
  • Amazing patterns- I had a hard time narrowing my choices down to 2 patterns.
  • Nice packaging- I loved the package they came in.
  • Designs are less vivid in real life than in photos. They're sublimated, so they become even less bright when they stretch

  • Price- $15 is a lot for a pair of socks when you're a grad student, regardless of budget
Neutral? They ship from Canada, so ship time is a little prolonged, and no tracking number is provided. It's not a deal breaker, but something to be aware of.

I haven't worn them enough to comment on durability, but they seem to stand up to my tall boots, paddock boots, and Dansko clogs.

Overall? 8/10. The sublimation results didn't wow me, and the price is a little steep for what they are, but I wouldn't hesitate to purchase more socks from them if my bank account allows! I think it's a good product, that, with a little tweaking, will be a phenomenal product.

- K & C & L


  1. Did you see the Derps section? Small printing flaws, but 2 for 1 grad school friendly :)

  2. They look cute but that is a lot for one pair!

  3. Their patterns are super cute, and the fabric thinkness makes me want to try them even more. But $15 is pretty pricey...
