UChicago Socks Collection: 2015 Traditions Socks

Traditions Socks are back for one day—today—only! This is your last chance to get UChicago traditions socks before they walk out the door forever. These 2015 UChicago custom socks are inspired by the quirky and intellectual traditions UChicago calls its own: Kuvia, Scav, Shake Day, and the recently reinstated Lascivious Costume Ball. The socks were designed by an undergraduate-founded company, as were 2013’s history of the “C” socks and last year’s scholar socks.  

Salute the sun and your shins.

Sock Pride

These College alumni donors show off their UChicago pride by stepping out in their one-of-a-kind UChicago socks. The custom socks, featuring emblems from the earliest years of the University, were crafted by an undergraduate-founded company and released through a limited-time offer to alumni supporters.
