Socks Kick is a Michigan based company formed by former Rotary Exchange Student Baris Atmaca from Turkey. After visiting East Jordan numerous times over the years with his family the idea of forming a company in Northern Michigan has become a reality
For the past 35 years his family has manufactured socks and legwear. The company does a full cycle of production; starting from knitting, finishing, packaging, inspecting, marketing and exporting. All of their socks are knitted on authentic vintage machines using only the finest quality yarns made for a superior fit and finish. They provide a refined feel that is immediately noticeable to the touch.
The company aims to expand statewide and nationally. Their next step after this will be to move some of the production from Turkey to here to make MADE IN U.S.A. socks. With the support of the community Socks Kicks expects to expand while increasing local investment and creating jobs.
