Frida Callus
It began when two friends Humberto and Gil had a "Who'd Have Thought" moment when considering a world in which socks could talk. Being playful types they established a company called ChattyFeet and kickstarted some fun. There's a phalangeal reference in sock nomenclature: Frida Khalo morphs into Frida Callus, Kate Middleton becomes Kate Middletoe, Andy Warhol becomes Andy Sock-Hole and Picasso shines as Feetasso.

Chattyfeet are made in Portugal from the finest cotton and designed by illustrators from around the globe including design students. The colours and patterns chosen reflect the life and work of the artist or personality the socks are portraying. After business boomed, the pair questioned why adults were having all the fun, so extended their range to kids. 
The Sockfather
Humberto and Gil's mantra can be applied more generally to life, "Be prepared to welcome new and sometimes surprising additions to your sock drawer, and try not to judge by design."
