Put Your Best Foot Forward with Caped Superhero SocksJune 1st, 2015
Socks are the hip accessory of the moment. Lots of people are wearing really bold, colorful designs, and more than a few fashion-conscious folks I know have adopted the hipster habit of wearing mismatched socks on purpose as a way to funk up their wardrobe (and mess with people’s heads).
So if you have a friend who is currently riding this style trend, blow their mind and give them a pair of these caped superhero socks. These long stockings come in Wonder Woman, Batman and Superman models, and each one has a sleek, mini cape that dangles from the top. It’s an ingenious idea I wish I would have thought of, and looking at them makes me envision someone streaking across a field with their sock capes flapping in the wind as they race to save someone in distress (or try to catch a Frisbee).
There are two things, however, that bother me about these dashing socks. First, the manufacturer says they are for ages 14 and over, and I know for a fact I could have handled wearing these when I was 13. Second, there is a disclaimer explaining, “Warning: Socks do not allow wearer to fly.” So does that mean a TSA agent is going to ask me to remove them the next time I go through airport check in if I have them on?
