We had the good fortune of connecting with Victor Ade and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Victor, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
After an extensive research, we noticed socks are the number one item the homeless community needs the most. So for every item sold on our website, we donate a pair of socks to the homeless community.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I’m always intrigued to help others and I love giving to people who are in need. When I was younger, I always knew that one day I would be active and give back to the community and those less fortunate. When I started this business, I knew I now had the opportunity to do what I’ve always wanted. I’ve always known that the ultimate reward in life is helping others.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
We are surrounded by beautiful beaches and nature’s finest. I would take a stroll through Balboa Park and visit all museums. Take jet-skis out to the middle of the ocean and enjoy the views. The zoo is my all time favorite because I love animals.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’ve had the opportunity to network and build connections with those who have made an positive impact on my life. I’m also blessed to have a wife who encourages and supports me.
