The concept of the fabled ‘Pear’ arose when Brock Sykes, our CEO and spiritual guide, spent one vision filled night, involving himself, odd socks, a donkey and a jar of peyote in the Mexican wilderness…
Not really but hey, we’re dreamers with lofty goals, an eye for design, art and obviously storytelling, so what more can you expect.
Odd Pears really is the brainchild of our most beloved CEO Brock Sykes. After working for ‘the man’ and attempting to climb his way up the corporate ladder, he became increasingly disillusioned with the world of the 9 to 5 white collar worker. During these dark times, one thing brought him light; his secret penchant for brightly coloured, odd socks. After quitting his job, travelling some and returning home with no direction, he realised that he needed to be his own boss, do his own thing and live his own dreams.
Much deliberation ensued. Every great idea begins with a problem that needs a solution. In his case that problem was how to create a socially conscious sock company which celebrated individuality and creative thinking. The solution; we created the Pear™. What is it? We’re glad you asked.
1. a delicious, bottom-heavy fruit. ((not our Pear)nothing to do with odd socks)
2. a grouping of three socks; two that match and one that is slightly (inversely) odd™. (our Pear)
