SAKO7 is a range of socks and cycling apparel created by Sean Sakinofsky, a road cyclist originally from Cape Town, South Africa. The name SAKO7 comes from his nickname, Sako, and his lucky number 7.
SAKO7's bold, daring and never boring designs are influenced by experiences, famous artists, individuals or movies which have made an imprint on the creator's life. The famous SAKO7 socks are manufactured in the USA, and they are renowned for their durability, wicking, drying, and air permeability.
So how did it all happen? Well, one night, late… while pondering love, peace & all good happiness stuff, Sean Sakinofsky was staring at his refurbished vintage bike, looking at the name on the down tube, which had been masterfully placed there by his mechanic/spray painter, Jared. It was SAKO7.
On the top tube, there was a pair of his favourite high top socks, and then it all dawned on him, ‘SAKO7SOCKS' and so it all began. It started with socks, and so the slogan is the root of all creation: 'The socks maketh the kit.'
SAKO's philosophy about socks is the following:
Sock length (YES, size does matter) most definitely is a contentious issue. Ankle high socks or anything less than a 4" high cuff is a no go!
However, if a sock is too high, it is not considered 'good style' or 'classy'.
There is nothing worse than when someone is wearing stylish cycling apparel and messes up the look with socks which fail to meet the criteria.
Socks can make a bad kit look good, and if the socks don't conform to standards, then the socks can make a good kit look bad.
'The socks maketh the kit.'
