When I asked SUPERSOCK what future hopes they had this was the response:
“I hope the future boasts of tolerance, originality, and that cultures learn to accept one another despite differences in beliefs and practices. the world is colorful because we are all different–let’s embrace that instead of trying to make it black and white.
SUPERSOCK is an amazing store and they are lighting the way for other artists to step out of their comfort zone and change the world. Job very well done. You are an inspiration. It’s an honor to have been able to feature SUPERSOCK .
