We're really excited to reveal our collaboration with Swedish sock powerhouse Happy Socks and the launch of three custom pairs of Minecraft socks!

This day marks the entry of Minecraft into haute couture and we hope you'll love it as much as we do. The socks are sold in packages of three pairs (and one swell package at that!) over at the Happy Socks’ store. They consist of Creeper, Pig and Minecraft landscape designs!

Come to think of it thats pretty standard pricing in Norway xD
Nah to be fair, you'd get at least ten pairs of socks for that.

Nice looking box though! :)

45 they might be but if they're 100 percent cotton and lets say this happy socks company makes only perfect quality socks than why not..

You're implying that being 100% cotton justifies 3 pairs of socks being 45$? Usually in business, pricing revolves around R&D, labor, and basic cost of materials. You factor all this together, incorporate projections of sales, target the proper demographic, and look at how much you can actually produce in a day. From that, you draw your cost. 45$ doesn't immediately mean they're quality socks.

45 Dollars? Is Notch trying to compete with gas prices or something?

It's probably Happy Socks driving up the price, not Mojang.
