Big Skylines Sock Co. began development in 2014 by two ambitious sophomore business majors, Ty Irving and Joe Stoutt. These co-founders both hail from Washington State where skyline socks were flying off the shelves. While attending Carroll College in Helena, MT, they recognized the gap in the market and realized how passionate Montanans truly were about Big Sky country.
Without the resources and know how to bring the idea into fruition, the skyline sock idea laid dormant for two years. In the spring of 2016, Joe and Ty enrolled in Carroll's entrepreneurship program. Led by John McCarvel, former CEO of Crocs, Inc., and surrounded by other passionate business students and professors, they were able to transform their idea into a promising plan of action.
After securing the necessary startup capital from a generous donation from John, they set out on their mission to bring high quality skyline socks to the Last Best Place. Starting with Helena Hightops and quickly planning expansion into other Montana cities, Big Skylines is set to take the state by storm. The 406: now on your feet.
