16 October 2014 THE SOCK OF THE TOWN!


 Gumball Poodle in Los Angeles magazine - on news stands now!

Thanks for the mention Los Angeles magazine!  We are delighted to be coined an influential player in the LA sock scene.  "Slip into the City's Best Socks" does a terrific job of illustrating some of the Los Angeles' top sock shops! The article breaks down shops into categories, based on customer demographic.  Among the four categories mentioned (the Aesthete, the Booster, the Show-off, and the Zealot) Gumball Poodle is highlighted for the Zealot, aka Kitson shopper.

Kitson is well-known as one of SoCal's top trend retailers, and they have carried Gumball Poodle since our earliest days. (And if you don't live in Los Angeles, don't fear - Kitson is expanding nationally so you'll likely have one near you soon!) GP WEED socks! Not only mentioned in the article, but can also be seen worn by Snoop Dogg in Psy's music video "Hangover". GP WEED socks!
