    Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Transplant Party

    Last week, the MERGE4 team got to spend some time with pediatric transplant recipients and stoke them out with some socks! Our visit was part of Lucile Packard Children's Hospital annual Transplant Party for kids that have undergone organ transplant procedures. Our awesome collaborators Cole Lemke, Kaia Myall, and Marvin Plummer got the creative energy flowing and facilitated mini-art workshops with the kids. We love the work our partners at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital do for kids!

    Bamboo Socks Are A Treat For Your Feet

    We put our feet through a lot. Our feet deserve to be protected, and with bamboo socks you can reward tired feet with a treat they won't soon forget. Our bamboo blend socks are technically designed to be long lasting, durable and comfortable. Bamboo is an amazing plant. The giant woody grass, found growing primarily in the tropics, is known for its hollow design and impressive durability. Out of the amazing plant comes our bamboo yarn, an incredibly soft material that we craft without chemicals, pesticides or fungicides. But do not let its softness fool you...

    Performance Socks For Feet In Action

    If you're an athlete, socks are likely already an integral part of your adventures. A good pair of socks is imperative to maintaining comfort and performance in outdoor activities, from skateboarding to mountain biking. Even when you are kicking back and relaxing on a day off with some aggressive couch surfing, a pair of socks can accentuate your personal style and keep you motivated for your next adventure. We like to think that our socks combine the best of both worlds.

    Wee Man Action Socks: Inspired by The Unstoppable Jason Acuna

    Every sport has its legends and every legend has a story and skateboarding is no exception. Every skateboarder has a unique story to tell regarding their introduction to the sport, their passion for developing their art, and the terrain they call their own. But Wee Man isn't like that. In fact, he isn't like any skater before him. Breaking into entirely new territory in a style entirely his own, Wee Man defies both physics and expectations. Have you ever watched him? If you haven't, go watch him. You'll understand what we meam. We're inspired by WeeMan - or as his parents call him, Jason Acuna.

    Born in Pisa, Italy in 1973, Acuna was raised in California and got his start in the skating industry as a subscription manager for a skateboard magazine. He eventually went on to become a television personality and actor for one of television's biggest series in 2001 where he adopted the moniker "Wee Man". He now owns over 30 restaurants across the United States and his own skateboarding company. No matter where his life takes him, however, you can be sure to find him still shredding on a regular basis at the local California skate park.

    Our Socks Have More in Common with Music Than You May Think

    At MERGE4, we know music is more than fleeting background noise you switch on to add a little ambiance to a dinner party. We understand that music is soul, movement, emotion, and for many, it's a way of life. The right music can bring you higher than your doubts, swoop low to comfort you on disconcerting days, and add a butt-kicking theme song to the story of your life. Beyond all that, music is inspiring, and it inspires us every day to create show-stopping, game-changing designs.
