Collab Convos: Dave "Nelly" Nelson

The MERGE4 team recently sat down with collaborator Dave “Nelly” Nelson and asked him about his work and his sock collaborations with MERGE4. Nelly is one of our most prolific collaborators with a whopping 25 sock styles, including 2 no show styles, and 3 face mask styles. Nelly became a member of the MERGE4 family right off the bat and has been a cherished member of our collaborator team.

We jumped right in asking Nelly about his experience with MERGE4. “First pair of MERGE4 socks are the craziest things because they’re the most comfortable socks I've ever worn.” Nelly is a strong believer in the MERGE4 brand. When asked if he had any MERGE4 socks on he showed off his super swanky Maia Negre Liquid Sunset socks and said “I always have them on.”

“I like the family that's involved in MERGE4 and it's all about surf, skate, punk rock, right? That's what I've always been into since I was a little boy. It just fits.”

When we asked Nelly what his favorite MERGE4 x Dave Nelson socks were he told us “I love all the animal socks. The otter, the turtle, the pelican. I like anything that has to do with nature.” Us too, dude!

MERGE4 is super stoked and honored to be able to collaborate with Nelly on a regular basis. He never fails to leave us in awe with his breathtaking sea scapes, wildlife shots, and stellar action shots and we have a great time taking those shots and turning them into really cool socks.
