What is the text on the underside of the socks you ask? Aside from the blog's URL, the phrase on the other side is: "Empecuecando el internet desde 2009". Let me explain the meaning. In Colombia we have many wonderful words in Spanish for things that the English language simply does not have words for, "pecueca" is one of them. It refers to the smell of stinky feet which is usually transferred to the socks and shoes that envelop them. The term does not apply to any other smell, just that which comes from smelly feet. So the phrase roughly translates to:

"Making the internet smell like dirty feet since 2009".

Superbly funny, I know. You needn't tell me. Luckily, the socks will be high quality, and thanks to Sock Guy's expertize in making such attire, they actually will NOT stink when you wear them. Lovely. Additionally, if you find the message to be gross or silly, no one will know what it says. Unless they are Colombian, and you are shoeless. And what are the chances of that?

To order:
Simply send payment through Paypal to this address:

Please make sure you calculate the overall total (including shipping) correctly, because otherwise you'll get an email from me mocking your lack of math skills. In the comments section, clearly state:

1. Item/s, color, size and quantity

2. Mailing address and full name that these will be sent to. It shouldn't be any different than the address already registered with your Paypal account.

  1. Sweet. Thanks for putting in the time and effort to make this happen!

  2. Klaus,

    I received my socks today and they are awesome. I appreciate the low-key but uber-cool color scheme. Lest I forget the stickers, button and recipe. Soler, FTW!

  3. NICE!!! can't wait to get my shit and start picking up ladies!

  4. Now I'm getting excited. And stressed. I hope I picked the right size

    My feet keep asking if the mail has arrived yet. Never should have let them see this post.

  6. Though I felt a bit silly wearing my own jersey, I thought I should try it out. So I woke up early this morning, and headed out. 55 miles. 55 miles with the tags hanging out of the jersey, coming out of the collar. I'm a world class idiot. The tags are huge too, and there's like four of them. Nice.

    Great colors on the jersey you have on in your profile picture. Glad you liked the socks!

    Breathe, breathe. It will be okay. I swear. Not really...but it will be fine.

    Maybe they'll be there today? Should be. Unless you moved to Guam.

    No Guam.
    Socks will make for a nice Monday morning greeting at work.

  8. Alright, howzabout a Brooklynder CI group ride and photo in PP?
    I promise to be the slow (-witted) one.

  9. klaus, this is kinski, i just picked up my package at the post office. I am gonna get some shorts this afternoon and send you my awesome pics. Thanks for the awesome jersey. And you Panela tastes better then the brand I get (Fela). well thanks again for the great jersey. I am styling!!!

  10. Mr Kinski,
    I'm glad you're enjoying the goods!

  11. My stuff arrived while I was out of town on my honeymoon. I came home, saw the packages of delights that were destined to encounter my sweat, and wished that I had married Klaus instead.

  12. can anyone compare sizing to rapha jerseys?

  13. Anonymous,

    I wear a small in both (Rapha being the club jersey). These are a bit more form-fitting, but very little. On these, a Medium is big on same size on both for me.

  14. that's it, I'm ordering. I'm also up for Bkln. NY shots.

  15. Jerseys came yesterday and fit like a glove (XXL for this tall person).
    whistle of admiration from my wife. Awesome package add-ins.
    Will go forth unironically.
    All is well.
    Mikeweb, shout out when you are in a CI jersey way.

  16. xyxax,
    whistle of admiration from the there any greater compliment in the world? I think not. She has good taste, so she's a keeper.

  17. Wore the socks on a couple different rides last week in northern CA. Really love them. They are the perfect weight for mid- to high-mileage rides.

  18. just got my socks, and my panela, and my recipe, and my hand-written note, and I can't wait to try them all out. (not the note--the note is a proven success). cheers!

  19. Andrew,
    Glad to hear that things got to you okay. i'm also glad to hear that you were able to read the note on the first try!

  20. will there be another order of black jerseys anytime soon? please. ta.
