Orange and Blue Sporty Socks
I love the color scheme of this month’s pair of socks. The contrasting colors feel fresh and sporty, but with a strangely retro vibe that makes them feel cool. The body of the socks are gray with black lines running through it—the pattern looks a bit like static on an old TV screen. As usual, these socks hug my feet in a way that feels secure, yet forgiving enough to be comfortable. These thicker socks are mostly nylon, but they feel surprisingly breathable. I could totally see these coming in handy as the weather gets colder—I might wear these pulled up over the ankles of my leggings to keep warm on the walk from the yoga studio to my car, or I could see myself tucking them up under looser leggings or even jeans to help me stay cozy on a run or walk.
Verdict: The design of these socks aren’t as trendy as the looks in other sock subscriptions—take note that you’re buying an athletic sock subscription, not a fashion sock subscription. That said, I’ve been surprised by how comfortable and even cute some of these socks have been. I love the colors in this pair, and I can see them being a practical pick for fall. $12.99 is more than I’d typically pay for a pair of socks, but I suppose the quality is there. If you’re in need of super tough socks for your athletic adventures, then this subscription is probably perfect for you. If you’re looking for fashionable socks to show off in your everyday outfits, there are less expensive and more stylish options out there.
