Mark Ong and Sue-Anne Lim are Mr. and Mrs. Sabotage – the dynamic husband-and-wife team behind SBTG. With an amalgamation of influences, SBTG’s works is a bricolage of punk rock, skateboarding, 80s America and military motifs. SBTG’s artistic practice is one infused with moral courage; living by the punk and skateboarding tenet of having the freedom to be what they want, they pursued a path in visual arts independently, relying on discipline, hard work, and DIY entrepreneurialism.
In 2006, SBTG together with Nike released a limited edition SB Dunk Low. It was sold out on the day of its release, and is now a cult collectable.
Throughout the years, Happy Socks expanded its reach to over 70 countries. While all collections are still designed in Stockholm, Sweden, the Happy Socks team came up with a new concept called Local Hero.
Collaborations are a vital part of Happy Socks' DNA and have contributed in the brand remaining relevant since it initiated the socks market in 2008.
