For Bare Feet, a leading sock manufacturer and retailer, is excited to announce its continued partnership with Buffalo Bills' tight end, Dawson Knox, for the third consecutive season of the Knox Sox campaign. Knox Sox, a charitable initiative founded by Dawson Knox, aims to support the P.U.N.T. Pediatric Cancer Collaborative in their mission to provide crucial financial, emotional, and practical assistance to families navigating the challenges of pediatric cancer.
Throughout the 2023 NFL season, For Bare Feet will offer an exclusive collection of Dawson Knox and Buffalo Bills-themed socks for sale on its website, forbarefeet.com. A portion of the proceeds from every purchase will be directly allocated to P.U.N.T., reinforcing the commitment to supporting families and children facing pediatric cancer. As the official sock partner of Knox Sox, For Bare Feet is dedicated to utilizing their established licensing partnerships with the NFL and NFLPA to support charitable community initiatives and programs, like Knox Sox.
The highly anticipated 2023 Collection will launch on August 8th, a date chosen to honor Dawson Knox's jersey number, #88. This special collection will feature four brand-new sock designs, alongside fan favorites from previous years, offering a diverse and stylish range for Buffalo Bills and Dawson Knox fans. All socks within the collection will be exclusive to forbarefeet.com and available as limited-edition items, allowing fans to showcase their team spirit in a unique and impactful way.
Knox has gone above and beyond during his involvement with P.U.N.T., helping them secure over $300,000 in funds since his rookie season through a variety of activations and the Knox Sox campaign. In addition to the sock sales contributions, Knox has pledged to donate a portion of his own earnings for each catch and touchdown he achieves throughout the 2023 NFL season.
"We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Dawson Knox and support the Knox Sox campaign for another season," said Aric Holmes, Director of Marketing and Ecommerce at For Bare Feet, "By combining our passion for creating high-quality, fan-focused merchandise with Dawson's dedication to the P.U.N.T.
