BBS Hosiery, Inc. is a family owned and operated company, founded in 1988 by Bill Birkett. Bill has been working in this market since the early 1980's and takes pride in bringing you the best value and quality possible for your money.
For over 25 years we have specialized in sport specific socks, manufacturing and distributing to the large retailers. In October of 2008 we moved our distribution center to Dayton, Ohio. With this move, our focus shifted from providing your typical run-of-the-mill product to manufacturing goods of quality a step above our competitors. Our first line of high-end sports socks was EcoSox, sport socks manufactured of viscose from bamboo. At the time we were attempting to develop top-quality athletic socks in an eco-friendly manner using bamboo. With plans to sell to small mom and pop shops and boutiques, we had no idea how quickly EcoSox was going to take off. Not soon after the development of the Ecosox program, founder Bill Birket was hardly able to contain his excitement when quoted by a local newspaper saying...
Words can’t express my excitement about the EcoSox program. In my 25 plus years in the hosiery business, this is the best performance sock I have ever worked with. We take pride that our bamboo socks are better for the environment and we provide our customers a sock that is more durable and offers better performance than your average sports sock.
Now we enter faze two. Following the explosive growth of our EcoSox line, BBS Hosiery Inc. has developed our next high-end high-quality hosiery program, Blue Flame Footwear thermal socks. After researching the thermal market, we have developed a sock from brushed acrylic fibers that provides superior warmth, comfort, and durability, all at a great value. Whether working, hiking, or just enjoying the outdoors, Blue Flame thermals will be there to keep your feet warm and cozy. Take a look at our home page for more information about our product and browse our online store to try a pair yourself. You won't be disappointed, we guarantee it!
