Merge4 is the brainchild of four long-time movers and shakers in the action sports industry:

Keith Meek is a skateboard legend, artist, digital graphics/pool ripper.

OUR SPONSORS

These four merged their time and talent to produce a line of socks that merge comfort, quality, style and strength.

Merge4 is a sock company but it’s also a visual company, and that brain trust are aided and abetted from land and sea by many but two stand outs are skate industry legend, Hall of Famer and shooter Mofo and global lsurf-shooter and legend himself Dave Nelson.

Style? Believe it. Check out the Collection page on the www.merge4.com website and be amazed at how stylish socks can be. So stylish, some folks are gonna want to walk around shoeless and pantless to show off their cool new foot-threads. Merge4 does not condone breaking any decency laws, but they do urge the general public to go online or find a nearby retailer and try on a pair.

OUR SPONSORS

Try one pair of Merge4 socks, that’s all we ask, and bask in the warmth of thoroughly modern materials and design, complimented by action and art by some of the most thoroughly modern artists, photographers and athletes. Cool and warm. Solid and soft. Everything you want in foot underwear.
