Some say it was a balmy afternoon. It could’ve been a Tuesday if it wasn’t already the end of the week. But, it WAS September. An unassuming, ethically-themed skarfing establishment and seminal OG skateboard magazine writer/artist/musician/photographer, Mofo collided with Cindi Ferreira Busenhart— long-time, low-profile, NorCal action-sports’ MAVENtrepreneur. Discussion intermingled, thoughts about newer technologies, todays broader spectrum of visual presentation capabilities, day-dreams of vintage action images, graphics, art and athletes of many kinds. The wheels of creativity begin to churn, as an idea began to take shape. Cindi got to thinking. One thought blended with another; Mo’s images, some more ideas, some technology, the jalapeños - BIFF-BANG-BOOM! she synthesizes a potent business concept swiftly into action. She enlists OG skateboard-legend Keith Meek —master artist, digital graphics/pool ripper. She incorporates hard-rockin’ Las Vegas restauranteur Gigli Locatelli. Completing the quartet is 80s Professional skateboarding icon/half-pipe crusher/mountain-bike pioneer/businessman, Rob Roskopp, forming MERGE4—a sock company.
ABOUT OUR SOCKS
The thing about socks for the feets of action sports people, the assorted charismatics on the go is…MERGE4 knows that not only must socks look cool, sock construction must endure the punishment of action-people and charismaticans, making them comfortable while looking particularly above-average and miles ahead of the cool curve with a list of artists deeper than Lake Tahoe.
Beyond magnificent in appearance, style and comfort, the MERGE4 socks for the feets are constructed like no other. Your soles are GRIPPED by our deviously interesting ‘CULT-WEAVE’. MERGE4’s ‘CULT-WEAVE’ cushions what is sometimes called the ‘arch’ area. YES, you heard correctly; MERGE4 “GRIPS YOUR SOLE”.
We’re not going to make any guarantees here, but we’re pretty sure your feets will thank you.
