About The Back-To-School Collection

With multipacks of everything from preschool-ready grippy styles, to animal-themed pairs (complete with adorable ears), to leopard-print quarter socks your older kids will love — there’s a sock here for your kiddo to absolutely live in.

As with all your Bombas purchases, for every pair of socks you buy, Bombas will donate an equal number to someone in need. And if for some reason you’re unsatisfied with your items, Bombas makes it easy to return with pre-paid return shipping — although if the glowing reviews are any indication, you’ll likely be back for more. (Good thing they knock off up to 10% off the prices of multipacks.)

Here are the standout looks from the back-to-school drop from Bombas.
