Trend Watch: Around the World

This morning we were inspired by some of our favorite blogs where we came across some really fun sock and hosiery trends from around the world!
London is staying cool with patterned blue! Try our step wool blend sock!
Paris looks great in opaque tights (even in summer)! Try our black microfiber tights for the same look!
Paris also makes a bold statement with all white and just a pop of color in the socks! Our relaxed roll top crews in a variety of colors would be perfect for getting this look!
Tokyo men keep it colorful with their highwater pants and fun agryle socks! You too can be fun and colorful with our men’s argyle.

Thanks to StreetPeeper for the images!

Friday Music Blog Giveaway

Today was cloudy and chilly as I got up for work. I stubbed my toe on the way to the bathroom to brush my teeth, only to find the tube of toothpaste in the cat box! Here were all the ingredients for starting the week off on the wrong foot. With a bad mood brewing and sitting in traffic this song came on the radio: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FG1NrQYXjLU&ob=av2e] Of course I couldn’t help from smiling and singing along! Amazing what a difference a fun song will make! To keep in with this fun music theme we’re giving away a pair of men’s making music socks and a pair of lady’s making music socks this Friday. Make sure to comment on this blog post to be entered.The sun is shining now, looks like my day is going to work out OK!

Sock Swag?

Ever wonder what some of the celebrities out there think of their socks? We wonder if they love them as much as we do? Well it seems Nick Cannon does! His daily tweets have started to include pictures of what he calls his “sock swag” where he photographs his feet and his daily snacks in his radio booth! His sock collection seems pretty impressive (almost as awesome as our selection of men’s socks that is ever growing)! Need some socks, Nick?

Check out his twitter here so you can follow a fellow sock fan!
