We want to make ordering easy peasy!

How we go about producing and distributing our products is also of the utmost importance. We are proud to have our socks made in the USA, as we believe it is essential to support American workers and do our part to reduce our carbon footprint.

One of the savviest, most intelligent, and most thoughtful members of our Marketing team is Alex Methvin, and I am excited to have you get to know her! As a co-worker of Alex, I can personally tell you she is a true pleasure to work with, her smile is contagious and she is always there to help a fellow team member out.
Alex is a tech-wiz, grinding out methodical SEO strategies for various platforms, she brings knowledge backed by research to the table. Understanding what needs to be done and when, Alex uses research and analysis to improve our website's ranking on search engines like Google. She seeks to create a positive user experience and grow our website traffic, lead volume, and brand awareness. Besides ensuring our site and channels are performing to the best of their ability, she shows up every day as her best self and brings positive energy and excitement. Sock Club is beyond lucky to have her for almost 10 months, and we hope for many more!
When asked to describe Sock Club in three words, she said, “Growing, Innovative, and Friendly.” Alex has contributed tremendously to the growth mindset here at Sock Club, instilling the importance of hard work, ambition, and never settling. When asked who or what inspires her, she said, “Numbers” I laugh, because knowing Alex, numbers are her best friend. She loves to know what keywords are ranking, what number our site is, and our traffic, not just the current position, but the average and how it compares. Tracking numbers and their performance shows her what is indeed working or not. Numbers don’t lie, so understanding them and learning how to get them to turn your way is right up Alex’s alley.
What you may not know about Alex is that she has 100 5-star reviews for walking/sitting dogs. So, if you live in Austin and are ever in need of a dog sitter, Alex is your girl- seriously this girl is a dog whisper. The last book she read was How to Do the Work by Nicole LePera, which was definitely worth the read. The first concert she ever went to was Jordan Sparks for Arizona’s Centennial Celebration. The next place on her travel bucket list is gorgeous Switzerland, but said she would take anywhere that’s cooler than 100 degrees right now - the summers are really hot in Austin!
We asked Alex what her favorite pair of socks (thus far) have been and she said, “My Barilla Pasta Socks. They're very on brand for me” They truly are. Alex absolutely loves pasta, I swear she eats it almost every day. She loves it so much that whenever she’s eating lunch she has a pasta emoji next to her name. Last but not least, Alex gives amazing recommendations. Whether it’s a restaurant, a show to watch, or where to get your nails done, you best listen, her recommendations are A1.
We hope you enjoyed getting to know Alex a bit more, and the value she not only brings to Sock Club professionally but personally. Alex is a bundle of positive energy with a high work ethic and is always there to lend a helping hand. All of us at Sock Club are lucky to have her and we are excited to continue watching her grow and accomplish whatever she puts her mind to!
