Wear your red socks to celebrate kiwi spirit and great leadership

Red Socks Day

Sir Peter Blake liked to wear his red socks for good luck, and during the America's Cup Challenge of 1995 New Zealanders supported the boat by putting on their own red socks.

The Sir Peter Blake Trust encourages schools, organisations and individuals around New Zealand and around the world to celebrate the memory of a great leader - Sir Peter Blake - by wearing a pair of his red socks on Red Socks Day -  Friday 12th July 2013.
Official red socks and Red Socks Day lapel pins can be purchased through The Sir Peter Blake Trust using the shopping cart below. You can pay by credit card or receive an invoice through the post.

While these items are made as affordable as possible, any proceeds are used to help the Trust run its programmes. Thank you for your support.
