We're so excited to check out this month's sock surprise from Venice, California based sock of the month club Sock Panda! Just so you know, the socks we're reviewing are a part of a partnership we have with Sock Panda for sock reviews. We have to admit we get quite excited to see this cute Panda package in the mail each month!

As you can see, Sock Panda's socks come in a teal and red tough paper package. The package has a photo of a Panda handing a pair of socks to a turtle (or tortoise) to show that Sock Panda participates in giving back to those in need when you sign up for a sock subscription.Let's rip into this month's sock of the month surprise!

When we opened our favorite teal monthly package, we immediately noticed that this month's socks packed a lot of punch in terms of color! The first pair of socks we pulled out of the package had bright yellow details—toe, heel and trim at the top. The middle of the sock, or perhaps we could now refer to it as "the meat" of the sock, is white,with yellow, light green, army green, and dark greenish/gray blobs or speckling on top. The socks kind of look like a modern version of cobblestone or tortoiseshell.

Sock Panda: Women's Sock DetailConsidering that the size of these socks is on the smaller side (in comparison to the other pair) we're figuring that they're part of Sock Panda's sock of the month club for women, in which you can select to receive "Patterns & Prints" or "Wild & Crazy" or "One of Each." If we had to take a guess as to which of the first two categories these socks feel into, we'd honestly say we're not sure, but feel they could work in either. We also feel that the color palette of these socks could deem them unisex—they would work just fine in both the men's sock of the month club as well as the women's sock of the month club.

Sock Panda: Men's Sock of the Month

Sock Panda: Men's Sock of the MonthThe second pair of socks we pulled out is almost identical to the first pair, except that the colors and sizing are different. These socks are larger than the other pair, which means that they are part of Sock Panda's sock of the month club for men. The details of this pair—toe, heel, and trim at the top—are a pretty mint green. The "meat" of the sock is gray with bright—almost neon—green, army green, and dark greenish/gray blobs or speckling on top. This sock could be interpreted as a modern rendition of camouflage.

Sock Panda: Men's Sock DetailAs far as the men's categories go, we're not sure if these socks fall into the men's category of "Stylish & Suave" or "Daring & Bold'. Technically we feel they could fall into either one of them.

Sock Panda: women and men's socks of the month side by side

Sock Panda: women and men's socks of the month side by sideWhile both pairs of socks we received this month were almost identical (one of the men's sock of the month club subscription and one for the women's sock of the month club subscription), we really thought the socks were vibrant and fun. We also don't know how often couples each are part of a sock subscription, so we don't think this presents any problems.

One more thing to note, Sock Panda is located in Venice California, but they make their socks in Peru!
