Where to buy cool socks in Barcelona

Written by Dylan

Picture this: you’re walking down La Rambla in a crowd of people, your vision flooded by grays and blacks. Suddenly, out of the fog of conformity appears a burst of color and your eyes are drawn to it like a bumble bee to pollen. Luminous pink fabric with little neon green mustaches that spread across them. They are peeking out at you and almost mesmerizing you as you pass by. You don’t know how, but somehow this person is pulling off the look and you are intrigued. Their non-conformist and almost rebellious appearance inspires you and you crack a smile, wondering “Where can I get socks like that?”.

But they also have mid-height socks in similar styles. All their socks are designed and manufactured in the city and they only use eco-friendly cotton and dye.

Their products can be bought both online and at one of the many shops in the city which carry their products, such as Madame Chocolat at Carrer Bailen, 12, and La Nobi, at Carrer Joaquin Costa, 9.

Mr. Lopez is an online shop which sells Spanish-made socks worldwide. High socks, short socks, they have them all, decorated with traditional or irreverent patterns such as Pacman, cosmopolitan glasses, and watermelons.
