Socks should be socks at the end of the day, and stay that way. From the time someone wakes up to the end of one day, people shouldn’t have to worry about the alignment or how frustrating a sock could be. This applies to active people especially, and there’s even a shoe shop that agrees with me. A wonderful remedy back at the house is to make it so that the sock and shoe are one, or the socks are styled in ways that are similar to the shoe. It’s an interesting idea, because by making socks connect with something beautiful (like a shoe or a toe), we might be able to ignore the irritation factors to a great extent. Talk about a fashionholic/fashionista! Joking aside though, this worked well with toe socks. Of course, if you’re the busiest of worker bees, then you probably have went too fast while putting them on to even take notice of what i’m talking about, or maybe you ran into adjusting your socks a little too much once or twice when you got ready for work and thought about how irritating it could be.
The other way of dealing with this is to embrace holes or to simply get rid of the socks. Hole fashion for socks has never really been popular with anyone except the girlfriend/boyfriend, but to embrace (ignore) the holes outside of that is to have a wonderfully mean work ethic. Socks that are attached so closely to the shoe and forgotten about must be a reference to the most active of people, a great group to deal with in terms of movements and work. Sock-to-shoe combo could translate to I didn’t have the time because i’m too busy or a personal meaning, but back at the house it’s a fashion statement. One thing that people may miss though is the feeling of taking off your socks after a long day. For many people, especially females, taking off your socks may seem like a built in alert feature on the existence of sensitivity on your own foot, but this is probably lost with the button up design – something that expresses an ethic that never allows you to slip your socks off, but to be strapped in, only to be able to take them off (unbutton) them when your actions are fully complete.
Style is another thing that socks don’t really have, but gained over a long period of time. The coolness of the sock came up with its age and how old school it was perceived to be. School is one place where sock wearing is popular and standard. However, the realm of socks became innovated with the designs shown above, hoping to elevate them above the feet of students and young idol contestants. To wear a sock means to know where your place is and to be comfort with that, it’s something that physical education plays on often because in the morning, students wear socks as a part of their outfits and it identifies that they are a part of the physical education class. Design effort on socks should consider why socks are thought about with standardized outfits, and should be aware that the sock goes with everyday life and memories.
Let’s see if designer socks can keep up with the cozy, buddy, snug room presence of a regular ones.
