Sole Food

Monday, March 29th, 2010

Socks are food for the sole…..literally.  Feet take the biggest beating each and every day carrying us to our destinations.   Running, walking, jumping, in the moment we don’t consider the impact these type of demands have on our feet.  We should take good care of our feet since we only have two to last a lifetime.  At the end of a day throw on some comfy socks, pour a glass a wine, and kick those dogs up!  Aaaahhh, comfort.

Is there a bigger unsung hero among inanimate objects than socks? Think about it. They hug our sweaty feet all day, 2bhip sockskeep us warm, get riddled with holes, and never once complain. Usually we don’t think about socks until our big toe is sticking out of them, after all white is white and they all go in the same drawer. Thus, our hometown heroes lie dormant and unfulfilled, wounded and vulnerable, feeling the sting of under-appreciation as their hive-mind convinces them all at once to stand up and revolt, to walk out overnight and never cover a human’s foot again. It is the Sockpocalypse, and no man or woman will wear a sock again.

Okay, maybe not, but that still doesn’t mean socks shouldn’t be fun. You don’t own a whole closet of just plain white t-shirts, do you? Why treat socks the same way? After all, they have the harder job, the far less dignified job. Why not dress them up nice in bright rainbow colors and take them out for a night on the town, where they can be the center of attention? Isn’t it about time these unsung heroes became a little more exciting? Cool socks are finally invited to the party. They’re finally ready to kick back a few with the rest of the wardrobe and finally, at long last, feel at home.

What kind of food are you feeding your soles?  Fuzzy, striped, argyle, knee-high, polka dot?

Fun & Cool Socks make great stocking stuffers

Socks are great.  Socks are necessary.  Everyone wears socks.  Ok, maybe if you live on a tropical island you don’t wear socks.  I hope not anyway!  It’s quite possible that my grandfather wears socks in 80 degree weather.  He does that sometimes.  He would be the one with the sandals and the socks.  Somehow he didn’t get the memo that wearing socks with sandals is a fashion catastrophe and that doing so would be considered a fashion emergency in America.  Well, for the average fashion inclined person, socks can be quite an accessory!  They come in all shapes and sizes:  Knee high socks, ankle socks, toe socks; Dressy, casual, and industrial;  pom pom socks, fuzzy socks, trouser socks.  It’s endless!  Socks do not discriminate.  Socks don’t profile.  Anyone can wear socks.  People with smelly feet SHOULD wear socks!  If you’ve never tried a pair of toe socks, it’s time you do. From the couch lounging NFL fan to the fashionista in the family.  Whether you want to wear them for comfort and warmth or just for a fun mood booster, there are so many to choose from.  Here are some of my favorite styles that I’ve seen:  argyle socks, striped socks, polka dot socks, spiderwebs, Kermit the Frog, Skelanimals, Nightmare Before Christmas, Muppet Show, animal print socks, and checkers socks.  And if you’re a true sock fan, you must own a copy of Dr. Seuss’s “Fox in Socks”.  That’s one of my all time favorite books.  And don’t forget cool and fun socks make great stocking stuffers…stuff a sock in the stocking:)  Give the gift of socks at
