MERGE4 Releases DEVO Collaboration Socks

MERGE4 is pleased to announce a new collaboration with pioneering new wave music group, DEVO.

MERGE4’s two new mind bending Devo socks, “Obsesso” and “Energy Dome”, feature a self-adjusting welt cuff, elastic arch support and a moisture-wicking sole. The socks are knitted using MERGE4’s signature ‘Cult Weave’ which prevents the vibrant graphics from being ‘blown out’ or warped when the socks are worn and stretched.

“We are beyond honored to be working with DEVO and to release these socks at a time when everyone needs a little pick-me-up,” said MERGE4 CEO and Founder, Cindi Busenhart, “If ever there were a time for the inner-scientist in all of us to come forward, now is that time—to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our neighbors. Why not do that while wearing a pair of DEVO socks by MERGE4?”

Devo’s improbable rise from obscurity began in the late 1970’s in Akron, Ohio. Devo put the “new” in New Wave, the music revolution of the 80’s. Their international hit song, “Whip It,” sealed their iconic status. With their synergistic mix of electronic rock, unparalleled theatrical live shows and groundbreaking music-videos directed by Devo co-founder, Gerald Casale, they created a multi-media art assault that resonates in 21st century, contemporary pop culture.

DEVO continues to be a major pop culture sensation and influence to this day – from TV shows and clothing styles to ‘80s-themed parties, headwear and now socks.

MERGE4’s Devo crew socks retail for $18 and are available to purchase from and through select retailers.
