Socks really are the perfect gift

Still searching for the right gift?

I remember years ago watching my younger siblings opening gifts on Christmas Day. Meanwhile, my brother would try to plant seeds of doubt in their heads with play-by-play commentary as they unwrapped each present. “I bet it’s socks!” he would say with a chuckle. “It’s just what you always wanted!” The kids celebrated when they tore off the wrapping paper to find a new toy instead.

Too cool: Today’s socks offer something for everyone

Until recently, I had never given socks a whole lot of attention.  A quick glance at my sock drawer would bolster that statement.

Not much of a variety in terms of color: white, black, and gray. And no, the gray socks aren’t dingy athletic socks that used to be white but now are only a mud run away from becoming black dress socks.

Heading to the beach, the pool or just relaxing around the house?

There’s a flip-flop or sandal for that.

There’s a good pair of socks for that.

Yes, it is a sizzling 90 degrees outside and you would like to give your feet a little bit of a breather. On top of that, there is the popular trend of men wearing shoes without socks this summer.

But going with shoes and no socks has its consequences

Socks that toe the line

So, what’s the big deal about socks?

Socks have traditionally been one of those items that don’t get much attention from me, at least. As long as they fit, smelled good, and didn’t have holes in them, they got my stamp of approval. They are just socks, right?

On the contrary, I have always been against going on the cheap when it comes to shoes. I mean, I am on my feet for much of the day, so I should go for the best quality shoes available, right?

Why should socks be any
