20 Quirky Hosiery Features

From Hallucinogenic Streetwear to Alligator Socks

— December 27, 2012 — Unique
You might not want to wear shoes ever again after checking out all of these quirky hosiery features. When it comes to socks, most people value function over form. However, few people can deny a pair of functional socks that are also weird, geeky nerdy or a combination of the three.

The great thing about all of these quirky hosiery features is that they truly do offer something for everyone. Not all of these socks are designed for geeks; some are meant to be worn by writers, fashionistas and even shark lovers. The best thing about all of these socks is that they let you wear your personality on your feet. Anyone can wear a nerdy t-shirt, but it takes a true individual to rock a pair of socks found among all of these quirky hosiery features.
