Happy Socks – Real Tube Socks

We’ve never been huge fans of tube socks. The lack of a heel is the biggest gripe, as, from our youthful days, we remember the way they’d puff and distort around the collar of our shoes. That being said, we’re willing to give them another try, especially if the folks at Happy Socks are offering their take. After all, the Willy Wonkas of foot sheathing, Happy Socks are always tempting us to break the lame rule that flashy socks shouldn’t be the focal point of an outfit.

These new tubers are made from a cotton/poly blend to “maximise [sic] the level of comfort and quality, combining tradition and creativity.” Plus, they come up all the way over the calf, so we know they won’t be quitters. Hopefully they won’t bunch up in strange ways, but if they do, there’s always room on the shelf for a pair of sock monkeys.
