Winterwear, maybe

I can’t imagine these coming out in the summer, though perhaps it’s just that I have no imagination:

Toesox

Cristina swears by them:

You know those socks you wear with certain boots or shoes that keep slipping off your feet and into the top portion of the shoe? Well, with these Toesox, that doesn’t happen. I reach for them when wearing particularly bad sock “eating” footwear such as rain boots, preventing me from ever having to go fishing for my socks in my shoes again!

Yes, these socks with toes do take a bit of getting used to, but trust me, they’re so worth it in the end! Toesox has so many socks available in all styles, colours, with grips, no grips, toes, toe holes etc. Yeesh, it’s really hard to keep track. Many styles they offer have rubberized bottoms to help with foot grip when you’re doing yoga or dancing. That being said, these are the newest of the Toesox prints and I love the stripes.

Then again, somebody somewhere is going to wear these with Practical Sandals in the summer, so I suppose I should get used to the idea.

    I vaguely remember an earlier incarnation of those being big in the late 1970s/early 1980s. The toes were different rainbow colors.

    They do take getting used to to wear them, as I remember. (Right now, I don’t think I could; even the rubbery piece that divides a flip-flop bugs my toes.)

    I don’t know that I’ve ever had the “sock eating” problem from footwear, but then again, if it’s bad enough for me to need boots, they’re gonna be heavy field boots worn with heavy wool boot socks.

    The problem I have with socks is, any socks high enough to wear with boots insist on succumbing to gravity while my boots are still on. The toes don’t roam but the shins descend something fierce.

    Well, when they do, that is, which frequency should be zero but isn’t.
