What does Nabee mean?
Not all heroes have wings, and that’s where the name Nabee comes in. Pulled from the Korean word Nabi, meaning "butterfly" in Korean and “prophet” in Arabic. Nabee was originally the name of my father’s art gallery. I chose the name to honor my father’s everyday superhuman dedication to creating an exceptional life, family, and business.
Now we can all have colorful and funky wings to make our everyday duties more comfortable and achievable, giving you the support you need to work just as hard as my Dad did.
Just like the butterfly and my fathers art, Nabee Compression Socks come in a range of colours and patterns to suit all heroes... who knew a sock could be the sidekick that you needed all along?

How Was Nabee Started?
Nabee Socks was born from an idea I had during a long night shift as a nurse. I had no business background except for selling Beanie Babies on eBay when I was in the 6th grade, but I figured that my experiences were probably comparable to an MBA and decided to give entrepreneurship a try. (Believe it or not, Beanie Babies paid for my freshman year of college.) So, I went to the drawing board, also known as Google, and started researching.
Two months later, feeling only marginally wiser, I started a Kickstarter campaign to raise some money. I was shocked when the campaign made nearly $13,000 with the help of 253 generous people. Initially flying blind and putting in 70-hour weeks, I was continually encouraged by the amazing responses from all of our fans. As a result, Nabee Socks has done everything possible to provide awesome compression socks and customer service to repay all the incredible support.
