Color psychology: socks for every mood

By August 10, 2015Spotlight

Colors have a huge impact on our thoughts and feelings- more than we even realize! We are faced with color choices all the time. The first crucial decision of the day usually comes in the morning when deciding what to wear. Often times, we will choose our clothes based on the color of the mood we are feeling or wish to portray that day.

Before you pick out a pair of ASPIRE socks for the day, read which socks exude which emotions!


Red is strong. Red is passionate. Red is danger.

Wear Razzle Red when you want to show the world who’s boss.

Red is often a color featured in nations’ flags, as it is a symbol of pride and strength.

Red is a noticeable color that is often used on caution and warning signs. It is often associated with stop or “beware”. Red gets noticed, so wear Razzle Red when you want to strut your stuff.

Orange is funOrange is positive. Orange is adventure.

Wear Radar Orange when you are ready to embrace whatever adventure life throws at you.

The color psychology of orange is optimistic and uplifting, rejuvenating our spirit. Wear Radar Orange if life’s been just a little boring lately and you need a pick-me-up.

Orange relates to ‘gut reaction’ or our gut instincts, as opposed to the physical reaction of red or the mental reaction of yellow. That’s what makes Radar Orange the perfect color for a spontaneous adventure.

Blue is trust. Blue is loyalty. Blue is calming.

Wear Fusion Blue when you need to relax.

Blue is conservative and predictable, a safe and non-threatening color, and the most universally liked color of all, probably because of these qualities.
