Cold feet and wet socks really brings down one’s mood for the entire day, which is why packing a spare pair funky socks can cheer you up, especially with Hurricane Sandy on the loose.

Wet socks are a great excuse to break out those secretly nerdy pairs that you have hidden in the back of your drawer or closet. For the more laid-back offices, a pair of colorful superhero socks or villainous ones are bound to catch the attention of fanatic coworkers. For those with leaky shoes, try a pair of hi-tech foot dryers or the nano-tech socks that can eliminate smelly feet caused by cooped up moisture in the shoes. From Renaissance-inspired styles to nerdy notebook patterns and massaging foot warmers, it’s always good to keep a backup pair close by.
