Make a splash below the ankle this season with a fresh pair of socks. No, we’re not talking about those black crews you buy in bulk – it’s time you’ve embraced some color and prints.
“There’s been a quiet sock rebellion gaining momentum over the last few years,” says Ryan Kingman, SVP of Marketing for Stance Socks.” And for good reason. Unlike boring neutral socks, a hint of something vibrant down below is a subtle way to stand out, whether you’re rocking a classic suit for work or kicking back on the weekend with the boys.
But who really wants to spend their free time shopping for socks? No one – that’s why we’ve done the work for you. Whether you’re looking to still play it safe with some preppy stripes or go full out with zig zags and dots, put your best foot forward with these statement-making styles.
This CA-based brand creates art for your feet with its massive sock collection of basically every print and color imaginable. Our favorite? Their hound dogs. ($14; stance.com)
