Personalised socks

At SockShop, we have fab ranges of personalised socks for men & ladies - make sure you know which socks are yours when it comes to that communal laundry room! We've even got socks to remind you of the day so you know which lecture to attend... (or which club to head to!)

Men's magic boxer shorts >

Running out of space? Try these magic boxer shorts! When you need them, just add water... (and leave time for them to dry!)

Slippers >

Nothing makes you feel cozy and at home like a pair of comfy slippers! So why not invest in some new ones for uni - they'll come in handy if the cleaning rota goes to pot and you don't fancy setting a bare foot on the kitchen floor!

Flip flops >

This may sound crazy as we're heading into winter but, flip flops are a fab uni investment for making those trips from your room to the showers... particularly if you don't quite trust the cleaners (usually you and your flat mates!)

Heat Holders >

In case the student life hits and you can't reach for the central heating, make sure you've got a pair of Heat Holders handy for the nights you make it to bed!

Fold Up Shoes >

We know not all students love to party but there's no doubt many of you will spend plenty of nights partying in 5-inch heels! Be sure you've got a pair of Rollasole or Tipsy Feet handy (they even come with a bag to put your heels in!)
