These beautiful book-themed socks have a special meaning to John and John's Crazy Socks Team. John has struck up a relationship with President George H. W. Bush and the former President wore these socks during the services for his wife, Barbara Bush, as a tribute to his wife's commitment to literacy programs. At Mr.Bush's request, we sent these Socks (as well as the men’s version) to the Bush family who wore them at the service to honor Mrs. Bush.  We were so honored and humbled to help the family.

Mrs. Bush had long promoted family literacy and had raised over $100 million for the cause. To honor Mrs. Bush, we will donate 100 percent of the profits from each pair of these socks to the Barbara Bush Literacy Foundation.

Here is what the Bush family spokesperson said: To honor his wife of 73 years and her commitment to family literacy, for which she raised over $110 million over the course of over 30 years, will be wearing a pair of socks festooned with books at today’s funeral service for former First Lady Barbara Bush.

Designed by the creative minds at ModSocks, they come in black and heather blue. There is also a Library Socks for Literacy Men’s Crew. So support the cause and get yourself a pair of these Library Socks for Literacy (a.k.a. Bibliophile)  Knee High Socksor give them to your friend who loves books more than anything.

Who knew socks could be comfortable?!

I have never really thought about socks before, but when Mrs. Bush died and I saw the socks President Bush wore, I knew I had to have a pair! I bought two, one blue and one black. I’m a school librarian so books are my thing! These socks were so comfortable!! I never realized socks could be!! Thanks so much!!
