Inspiration can hit you at the strangest times. For me it came while making my way through airport security. When taking off my boots I was forced to expose the old tube socks I layered over my tights. You see, the slipping feet, cold toes, blisters and snags which resulted from wearing traditional thin tights was a major pain in every sense. By the time the flight landed, the idea for Bootights was taking off.Learn More
Built on the mission to provide hosiery that truly merges comfort and style, BOOTIGHTS is the industry’s first performance moisture-wicking sock and premium tights—all in one.
Shelby Mason established BOOTIGHTS to meet a deep-rooted, untapped need in the lives of everyday women. Shelby, like most women she met, was tired of the woes of wearing boots with stockings that led to blisters on the feet and snags in the hosiery. After years of makeshift solutions, like wearing “borrowed” men’s tube socks over tights, her vision came to life.
BOOTIGHTS was born in 2009, with an industry-first legwear product that was launched at Dillard’s and was soon featured on Oprah. The company soon expanded into other leading department stores, with its keystone BOOTIGHTS—offering the legwear in a variety of classic colors and motifs.
BOOTIGHTS’ innovation lies in it patent-pending methodology, which allows for the ultimate in performance socks—featuring moisture-wicking fibers; compression arch support; a mesh zone; cushioning in the toe and heel; and a flat toe seam.
Further, BOOTIGHTS’ “tightology” offers every-course knit for a smoother feel and increased durability; smoothing control for the stomach and hips; and a thoughtfully constructed waistband to ensure it does not roll or dig into the waist.
Throughout the years, BOOTIGHTS has evolved to offer an ever-growing collection of functional, fashion-forward socks and hosiery in order to address the changing needs of everyday active women. In 2017 the SOCKTIGHTS brand was introduced in to the BOOTIGHTS family—providing comfort solutions for all shoe styles, not just boots.
Today, the BOOTIGHTS brand offers a full legwear line of socks and hosiery in a variety of prints, styles, and materials to accommodate a diverse range of lifestyles and wardrobe needs. The company’s original commitment stands strong—to provide innovative legwear solutions women can trust, without sacrificing on comfort or style.
