SAKO7 is a range of socks and cycling apparel created by Sean Sakinofsky, a road cyclist originally from Cape Town, South Africa. The name SAKO7 comes from his nickname, Sako, and his lucky number 7. So how did it all happen? Well, one night, late… while pondering love, peace & all good happiness stuff, he was staring at his refurbished vintage bike, looking at the name on the down tube, which had been masterfully placed there by his mechanic / spray painter, Jared. It was SAKO 7. On the top tube, there was a pair of his favorite high top socks, and then it all dawned on him, ‘SAKO7SOCKS’ and so it all began.
It started with socks, and so the slogan is the root of all creation: ‘The socks maketh the kit’
