First Glance

Bombas is a socially conscious clothing brand that focuses on making comfortable, high-quality apparel. Their cornerstone product is socks, boasting seamless toe, ultra-soft cotton, and honeycomb arch support. For every item that gets purchased, Bombas donates an item to the homeless community on the customer’s behalf. More than 40 million items have been donated to so far with that number growing every day. 


Bombas wanted to implement a large-scale data migration from Magento to Shopify, which meant that they needed development experts on both platforms. They found our team through the Shopify Experts database - Sunrise Integration was one of the only development agencies that specialized in both Magento and Shopify at the time - and the rest is history.

The Challenge

Keeping true to their creativity as a brand, Bombas was an early adopter of Shopify. However, this required several complex features to take their business to the next level. At the time, there weren’t as many options for customizations as there are in present day and as a result, our team called on our creative problem solving skills to build several custom solutions for their needs. Bombas turned to Sunrise Integration for custom Shopify app development and fulfillment integration.

The Solution

Bombas required custom solutions to extend Shopify Plus’ capabilities at the time. Our team built the following custom Shopify Apps:


  • A virtual sku system to package and market the same SKUs differently to different customers

  • Custom order status app service

  • Connecting their inventory to 3PL (Amware) with a custom app 


The orignal apps were developed using PHP and the Shopify API layer. The Sunrise Integration development team used a SAAS AWS hosting environment to create the PHP services and embed them into Shopify. The custom developed Shopify apps gave the Bombas team direct access to UI/UX controls.



The Outcome

With these custom solutions built specifically for their needs, Bombas became one of the early success stories of Shopify. Their team was able to operate and scale their business to huge success with ease while doing away with the complexities of their previous platform and workflows.
