Socks used to be a hated Christmas and Hanukkah gift but not anymore. Maybe it's because as kids we used to receive boring ole white socks. Our socks, are super cool, fun and fantastic! Little kids and big kids love them! Order them today so they will get there by the holidays. Be sure to check out what's new for great stocking stuffer ideas.

Black Over the Knee Socks by Foot Traffic

This morning I put on these over the knee black socks by Foot Traffic. I worked most of the day wearing them with my favorite winter dress around my home office. They fit me nicely, about a couple of inches above the knee and was pleasantly surprised they stayed up well. They fit snugly and can be worn with any type of shoe. They will fit small to medium size people above the knee and knee high on larger frames.

Peacock Socks

Yesterday we went to the annual eco friendly festival in our neighborhood. I knew we would find amazing clothing that is earth friendly and gorgeous. What I didn't know is that we would find Rene Geneva and her fabulous peacock socks!! These come in brown pinstripe and black & natural stripes. These socks are made of eco cotton and hemp. They are have a very wide elastic band to help keep them up. They are sturdy socks yet very comfortable. We have a very limited quantity of these and with them marked at $20 ($29 elsewhere) they will go fast.

Foot Traffic tights

We absolutely love our new tights! For over a year we were using a brand of tights that were 100% nylon. They were ok-- but sometimes gave people saggy knees due to the lack of stretch. About a month ago we slowly starting replacing to Foot Traffic tights which have 10% spandex for stretch and feels nice and soft too. Our friend Brit was one of the first ones in our crew to try them out and she complimented "Wow! These feel so nice" right away! Here she is in a pair of the navy.

Striped Tube Socks

Striped tube socks are definitely hot right now in fashion. There's Mariah Carey in her new video and Hannah Montana who wore them over the knee for her entire tour.

What many people don't realize is that when it comes to athletic teams and loungewear - tube socks have always been around. Cheerleaders, basketball players, dancers and those who like to chill in comfortably clothes around the home all love our tube socks. Tube socks come in a variety of different lengths and stripe styles. We currently make 3 styles, each with many different colors.

  1. Over the Knee/Thigh High tube socks - These come with 3 thin stripes at top. They can be worn pulled up as high as they can go or many prefer to wear them a bit slouched and have them sit just above your knee. We added 2 new colors: Hot Pink & Neon Orange
  2. Double Striped Knee High - We love these super fat stripes reminiscent of the 70's & 80's. Available in 9 delicious colors with Neon Orange just added. These are actually unisex style so they are sturdy. This is what the model is wearing below.
  3. Triple Striped Knee High socks - These have 3 thin stripes across the top like our thigh high style above except they sit just below the knee. These are made for women and are not as thick as the unisex style above, they have more of a delicate look.

The gorgeous photo below is of actress Kate Beckinsale with some pretty cool striped stocks on. Their site has also has a cute video but the magazine has all the nice photos with her cool socks on.

Although we don't have those specific striped socks we have a few of our own. One of our favorites are the Blueberry Stripes and Candy striped socks.

Here's a photo of our friend, Kasia. She is a fun chica and you may have seen one of her photos on the front page of our sock store. We change the picture every few months to keep it fresh.

Black & White Camo

Every day in the winter I wear knee high socks -- even under jeans. Some people think you only wear knee highs with skirts or dresses. For us city walkers--knee high socks are the only way to go. Here are one my favorites this winter-- black and white camouflage socks.

Cashmere Arm Warmers & Bow

My friend and I couldn't resist opening up a pair of the Betsey Johnson Cashmere Leg Warmers and putting them on our arms on a cold day. They are irresistibly cute on your arms. You can scrunch them down like in the photo here or pull them up so that the bow sits just above your elbow.

Very cute, soft and warm and looked great with a our new dresses we got for the holidays.
