The Sock Conspiracy

Is it just me or have you noticed that there has been a complete shift of people’s opinion on socks over the last 10 years or so. (ok so i know i’m a little behind on this but stick with me)

Are we too cool for socks? Do you actually like feeling the insides of a shoe without that millimeter of soft protection?


What bothers me even more or the sock hypocrites! Yeah I said it Hypocrites! You like socks, you wear them daily but you HIDE them! Why are you not proud to show you are a sock wearer? You enjoy all the benefits of soft cushy foot comfort but refuse to proudly display for all to see that you are, in fact, a sock wearer. Oh, the no-show sock…you dirty little secret.

The closer to the knee the better, oh, have we already forgotten… Even the crew sock is shamed. We turn our nose up at mid-calf socks. Dare I say even the beloved ankle sock is now too tall for our sock despising culture.


I can proudly say that there is a load of soft cushy heavenly socks in my dryer right now and I walk on cloud-like comfort daily. To all sock-wearers, be proud. Show off those socks, but never with sandals because that’s just weird.
