Hello TEAM! The design above is the official team sock that we have had custom made by SockGuy. I am trying to find out how many to order for the team. They will be made with 75% Ultra-wicking Micro Denier Acrylic, 15% Nylon, and 10% Spandex, and will cost $5-6/pair depending on how many we order. However, I need to know how many to order before I can find out the price. Please post below with how many pairs you would like me to order for you. Thanks.

Greetings Everyone: I wanted to touch base with everyone about the socks one more time. So where it was left is that I heard from SockGuy that there is a minimum order of 120 pairs of socks (which was news to me). Right now we are somewhere between 70-80 pairs of socks for the team. I crunched the numbers, and we could get the socks if we paid more for them. So instead of ~$5/pair of socks they would cost between $7-$8/pair. I know this is a lot different than what we had originally talked about so I want to see if people would be willing to pay that amount. If that's OK, I would go ahead and place our order. I'm not sure if we could get the socks in time for the Minnie, but I think we could. Let me know what you think.

04-20-2006, 08:02 AM
Dave - That works for me. I could take one or 2 more pair if that helps too. Thanks for doing this!

04-20-2006, 08:35 AM
Dave, is it too late??

I'd like two pair of the L/XL if possible....


04-20-2006, 08:49 AM

Just for the record, I'd be willing to pay more for these custom socks.

Thanks again for coordinating! :)

04-20-2006, 09:09 AM
Dave: No problem with the increased cost. Please just PM with the payment details when the time is right. Thanks so much :love:

04-20-2006, 09:34 AM
Dave -- Still fine with me! Thank you so much for dealing with all of this! :hug:

04-20-2006, 12:33 PM
Fine with me too. And I'll take another pair of the smaller size, for a total of three pairs.

04-20-2006, 02:37 PM
If it is not too late, I would like 2 pairs of the smaller size.

Thanks Dave for your work on this!

04-20-2006, 02:53 PM
No problem here either Dave.

Thanks so much for doing this :goodvibes

04-20-2006, 09:18 PM
I am good with the new pricing too!! I am still interested in 4 pairs total....2 small, 2 large! Thanks again!!!


04-20-2006, 09:20 PM
I'm still good with the pricing

04-20-2006, 09:35 PM
Xterratri and I are still good with the new pricing for a combined total of 7 pair.

I ordered our TEAM socks!!! He said they would be ready in about one month. Sorry, they won't be here in time for the Minnie, but you can train in them!

Wish I lived in Fl
04-21-2006, 03:54 PM
Good with the price also.

04-22-2006, 12:25 AM
Can't wait to get them! Thanks, Dave! :banana:

04-22-2006, 05:59 PM
Aaaaccccckkkkkkk! I'm always a day late. Will you have any extras?

04-22-2006, 06:36 PM
New price - no problem. In fact I originally said 2 L/XL, but would be okay with 3. Thanks for taking care of us.

04-23-2006, 07:11 AM
escape- yes, we definitely have extras. I put you on the list. How many and what size would you like?

taz4disney- I put you down for 3 pairs of L/XL.

04-23-2006, 10:17 AM
I would like 3 pair S/M. Thanks, Dave!!

04-24-2006, 09:40 AM
Dave - Let us know as soon as you have the final price and how you want us to get it to you! Thanks again!

Mouse Skywalker
04-24-2006, 10:43 AM
Dave - Let us know as soon as you have the final price and how you want us to get it to you! Thanks again! Hi Carrie: I'm going to setup some kind of Paypal/Ebay store in order to take orders for the socks. They'll be ready in about 1 month, and I'll see if we get anymore orders before then. Right now we're up to about 90 pairs. I had to order ~120 so the closer we get to 120 pairs, the cheaper the socks will be. I'll see how many orders we have when the socks come in and calculate the price then. It gives me a couple of weeks to figure out how to set up the online ordering thingy...

Yay! Again, thanks for taking on the project Dave.

04-25-2006, 06:57 AM
Dave-I'd love to get 2 pairs of the s/m and 1 pair of the l/xl. I've not been on the boards much, shows how much you can miss. If you don't have enough extra's, let me know.

04-25-2006, 12:51 PM
I'm fine with the price being a bit higher. Also, I could get another pair or two if needed. Thanks again Dave!!!!!

I've only just come back to the Wishboard - just started training for the DL 1/2. I will take 2 pairs in sm/med if you still have extras.

You must be getting close to the 120!

Mouse Skywalker
04-27-2006, 06:10 AM
I would like 3 pair S/M. Thanks, Dave!! I added your 3 pairs to the list Escape.
TammyNC- I have your 3 pairs on the list too.
RachelQ- yup, we still have extras, and I added your 2 pairs to the list too.

04-29-2006, 08:00 AM
Dave- I have been MIA lately and missed this poll. I would like 4 pairs of the sm/med and 2 pairs of the lg/xl if available. Thank you so much for organizing this!

05-25-2006, 11:15 AM
Is it too late to get some? I would love to have 2 pairs of the small size. It's OK if you're done ordering---I just saw this thread.

Can ya tell I'm ready?!
:hyper: Hi Lily :wave2:, yup, Sock Guy sent me a message saying that the socks should be sent the first week of June. I was really thinking they would be here last week. Everyday I got home thinking there would be a big package on my steps. Should be coming soon!

06-11-2006, 09:32 AM
How much with shipping?? and can we pay you by PayPal??

Mouse Skywalker
06-12-2006, 03:28 PM
Hey TEAM: I just got an e-mail from SockGuy saying our team socks shipped out on Friday, June 9th and I should get them on Wednesday, June 14th. The total bill was $617.50, and we got 100 pairs of socks. So each pair costs $6.18. Now I just need to figure out how much it costs to ship them $2-$3 :confused3, and whether PayPal adds on a percentage for me to accept money :confused3. If anyone knows the answers to those questions, that would be great. I'm definitely not trying to make any money on the deal, but I've never sold anything over the internet so I'm pretty clueless here.

06-12-2006, 04:35 PM
I've given Dave most of the info via e-mail, but just so you know he's not making it up ;) , PayPal does charge for transactions into your account (2.9% of amount plus $0.30 per transaction).

CAn't wait for my new socks! Thansk Dave! :teeth:

Mouse Skywalker
06-14-2006, 11:34 AM
Hey TEAM: The socks should be waiting for me when I get home. I'm sitting here at my desk at work, eating lunch, and icing my shins. I'm going to send out e-mails for payment now. Just so you have an idea of how much it will be - the payment is calculated like this:

each pair of socks $6.00
PayPal charges (2.9% + $0.30)
Shipping charge - flat rate ($4.40)

06-17-2006, 03:53 PM
Just got my socks! :cool1:

They look fabulous. I can't wait to try them out! Thanks again Dave for organizing this!! :thumbsup2

06-17-2006, 04:29 PM

Socks arrived here in Canada too!

I love them. DH laughed - and then I had to explain the lime green, the penguin, the Wish and the feather. You'd think he would at least have remembered the lime green, the penguin, and the WISH. He was my cheer squad for the Wish Walkers 2005 1/2 marathon at WDW. Oh well.

Thanks for all your hard work Dave.


06-22-2006, 09:27 PM
I got mine! They came out great, Dave! Thanks!

06-22-2006, 09:38 PM
Just wanted to let you know I got mine too!! Actually..... I saw that everyone else had gotten theirs and realized I forgot to check the mail today, so I ran outside and there they were shoved in the mail box. They look great, and I can't wait to try them out. Now all I am waiting for is mine and DH's shirts!!


06-23-2006, 09:47 AM
I got my socks Dave!! Thanks you so very much!! :love:

06-23-2006, 02:57 PM
