Holiday shopping just got cooler and warmer, now that MERGE4 is showing their entire collection of environmentally-correct, graphically-energized socks at their flagship store on State Street in Santa Barbara.

MERGE4 is your entry point into the world of contemporary socks: Quality-driven, comfortable, durable, modern socks that are both warm, cool and functional. MERGE4 socks are made from environmentally-responsible materials - like the new mechanical bamboo blend – and illustrated with art, graphics and action from a stable of athletes, artists, musicians and other collaborators spanning genres and generations: Wee Man, Steve Caballero, Landon McNamara, Jay Moriarity, Jimbo Phillips, Bad Otis Link, Eric Dressen, Nathan Fletcher, Timmy Reyes, Ed Colver, Greg Minnaar, Spidey Demontrond, Cedric Gracia, Shawn “Barney” Barron  - and featuring Skylar the Surfing Dog.

Across from the Metro Theater and surrounded by Volcom, Vans, Urban Outfitters and Billabong: 623.5 State Street is where the entire MERGE4 collection is on display for inspection and selection: 2,000 square feet of graphic socks - the perfect gift for Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanza or Festivus: “Visually artistic socks, featuring some of the best their industry has to offer,” said MERGE4 founder Cindi Ferreira-Busenhart. “MERGE4 is a product of love and appreciation for art and athleticism with a desire to offer new avenues for artists both inside and outside of action sports. The MERGE4 Store has an art gallery feel because each sock is like a work of art both in graphics and in construction. We are excited about showcasing socks by artists and athletes while we look for new and innovative ways to construct a sock. We cordially invite you to see MERGE4’s sock gallery presentation.”

You can expect MERGE4 festivities for First Thursday - a traditional evening of art and culture in downtown Santa Barbara on the first Thursday of each month.

MERGE4 will jump in with both feet and you can look forward to meeting MERGE4 society members and ambassadors at the store for First Thursday.


MERGE4 is a certified B Corporation - focusing on doing business for good.

The MERGE4 collection will knock your other socks off, and they are now on exhibit at the Santa Barbara store.
