Meet Our Founder

Paden Sickles is a dynamic veteran, female Army Engineer Officer, and the visionary CEO and Founder of SickFit, a trailblazing socks and streetwear company with a powerful purpose.

 

Far from the typical entrepreneur, Paden is a true force of nature, standing as the first woman-owned, veteran-owned, and minority-owned sock company in the industry. She weaves narratives of inclusivity, resilience, and empowerment that resonate with individuals from every walk of life. Guided by the principle "Great Men Move Slowly," Paden leads and navigates entrepreneurship with unwavering determination and integrity.

 

Paden earned her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Economics from the University of Kentucky while simultaneously commissioning into the United States Army. She continued her academic journey at Northern Kentucky University, where she obtained her Master's in Business Administration, specializing in Finance, and is currently pursuing her doctoral degree.

 

Amidst the scorching Texas heat, our CEO, Paden, conquered the grueling 12-mile ruck march for the Army's prestigious Air Assault School, only to find her feet in shambles – plagued by blisters and pain. In that pivotal moment, she recognized the pressing need to provide superior quality and support for our service members, athletes, and individuals enduring constant strain on their feet. Thus, on July 27, 2021, SickFit was born. 

 

An inspirational figure, Paden shares her wisdom and experiences through public speaking engagements at prestigious events such as the Georgia Southern Business Incubator, Frank Callen Boys and Girls Club, NYC Women’s History Month Celebration, Institute for Veterans and Military Families, and Military Influencer Conference.

 

Paden's magnetic energy and infectious smile leave a lasting impression on everyone she meets. Her high-octane approach to life serves as a reminder to never settle for mediocrity.
