Australian Boxer Is Making Thousands Of Dollars Selling Used Socks And Pictures Of Her Feet
| Last updated
An Australian boxer has found a niche way to make thousands of dollars with virtually zero effort.
Pretty much all of us will do a round of laundry every few days, but Ebanie Bridges skips on washing her socks and instead sells them to keen fans.
What started as a 'laugh among friends' has turned into a really decent way to make money.
Bridges, who has the boxing nickname the 'Blonde Bomber', was first approached about potentially selling a pair of socks she had trained in to someone online.
The 33-year-old had copped loads of messages about the idea and one night, when she was just having a joke with her mates, she replied to one keen supporter and said she'd do it.
Ebaine ended up getting a cool £500 from a British fan for the deal.
Since then, she managed to make $4,000 in a single month and one of the highest deals she made was $900 in a single transaction. She also managed to sell two socks from the same pair to two different clients for $2,000.
The boxer can even make around $100 by sending pictures of her feet while wearing socks.
Hell, the sudden interest in the 33-year-old's feet and what she puts on them has won her a sponsorship with UK sock brand Clingz.
Ebanie said: "You know how much money I've made from that s***. The story went like global in 25 countries or something like that so I had all these sock people from around the world.
"I've made a bit of money, I'm not going to lie. It's so weird though because I feel like I'm selling nudes when I think about sharing a pic of my feet without a sock on it. It's so weird.
"It's got nothing to do with my feet. It's just to do with these people and their fetishes. I don't think they even really care (about my feet).
"To me it's just business. I don't play around."
Hey, if people are willing to pay for that stuff, there's no harm done. You'd probably try not to think about what they were doing to the sock, but it would be hard to do that when your eyes are trained on all that cash.
Ebanie is instead turning her attention to her boxing training with former fighter Arnel Barotillo. She's hoping to take on English glamour fighter Shannon 'The Baby Face Assassin' Courtenay next.
