As the summer sun sets and a cooler season blows in, you may begin to notice a bit of a chill creeping right down to your toes… making it the perfect time to cozy up to some new socks!
Often an afterthought or simply forgotten, our socks are like an unsung hero, especially in the cooler months; they’re not as flashy as a hat, as functional as gloves, or as fashionably adaptable as a scarf, but they do an equally important job when it comes to keeping us warm, comfy and on our feet.
Athletic socks, for instance, have advanced far beyond the standard gym sock from back in the day; they can be cushioned, moisture wicking to pull the sweat away, offer compression, or are even designed for specific sports or activities.
If fun is the name of the game, check out some styles that are too cool to keep hidden. Out and about, or just around the house, bright colors and bold patterns give your feet something to kick up their heels over and are the perfect way to highlight your Vans or Converse.
And if you’re a minimalist, or socks simply aren’t your thing but the idea of frostbite is even less appealing, check out the no-show liners and footies. Designed so you don’t compromise comfort for style, these selections fit below the ankle, covering less of the top of your foot. So go ahead and sail on through the winter months in your boat shoes, skipper!
Get yourself ready for the cooler months, show your toes that you still care, and pick up some new socks.
