About Us

FBF was founded out of compassion for the human spirit and unconditional love.

For Bare Feet, LLC., branded and marketed as FBF, is a leading manufacturer and retailer of licensed and novelty socks. FBF began in 1984 when Sharon Rivenbark opened a retail store with one knitting machine for her son, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor.

Through hard work and determination, FBF grew into a dominant sock manufacturer with licenses for the NFL, NBA, NHL, Colleges, Hershey, Just Born, and many others.

The FBF corporate headquarters and factory in Martinsville, Indiana; as well as other locations, knits high-quality socks, headbands, wristbands, scarves and other items sold by retailers internationally. FBF operates 10 of its own retail stores and offers factory tours out of its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Martinsville, Indiana.

FBF became a Taglich Brothers Private Equity company in December 2018 and continues to grow and develop the business.
