Do you need a little perk-me-up? Then you might need a collection of colourful socks to put on. This is because colours have psychological effects on us. Warm colours like red, orange, and yellow stir up feelings of warmth and comfort. While cool colours like blue, purple, and green induce calmness or even sadness.
With this in mind, we chanced upon a local socks company named Freshly Pressed Socks. We headed straight to their website to shop their range of quirky-designed socks and thought maybe you guys would be interested too.
Having been in the industry for 5.5 years, their brand has won a shout-out from Peter Linz, who performs Ernie on Sesame Street. Furthermore, they have had partnerships with other brands like Grab, UOB, Gamestart Asia, Sole Superior, and Mothercare over the years.
We also love how all of their socks are designed with details that reflect a character and story behind them. We will show you some right away!
#1: SINGAPORE SERIES
Since our nation’s birthday is coming right up in a few days, we shall give their Singapore Series the spotlight. There are 11 designs at the time of writing with all priced at 12 SGD for a pair.
Apparently, their MRT socks are one of the best-sellers among their wide offerings. Here’s how it looks like:

#2: FAMILIAR CHARACTERS
We will show you three familiar characters that are all priced at 12 SGD too.
Fans of the Netflix science fiction horror series, Stranger Things, will adore this design inspired by Eleven. The design features a Demogorgon and the famous Christmas lights used by Joyce in the show.
Freshly Pressed Socks’ Tintin design features the iconic rocket ship that took Tintin on a mission to the Moon. Feeling down? Let Tintin save your day!
Popeye is our role model for healthier eating. If you need a reminder to eat your greens, get this pair that features nautical colours with icons of Popeye’s pipe, anchor tattoo, and spinach can.
