Sock It To Me

In our age of consumerism, what could be more popular than a 2 for 1 deal …. and in this case, the ultimate scenario of having your sock actually be your shoe. It’s a trend I’ve touched upon before and continue to ponder the everyday practicalities of: the sock-shoe. Is it a pragmatic approach to choosing a boot to purchase? How does one keep them clean? Should they be treated like any other shoe?

All great inquiries, but I will stand by my personal feelings and interest in the slimming qualities of having a boot with an ankle opening that actually fits securely. A sleek silhouette with no laces means getting out the door quicker too. And the shape really lends itself to transitional dressing, not having to wear a heavy boot means you are not just lighter on your feet, but more keen to embrace other lighter options too – like reading a book on a tablet instead of paperback, or a breezy knee-length skirt to float into spring
