Predatory Socks

The Shark Socks Give the Impression Your Feet are Being Devoured

— December 6, 2012 — Unique
These adorable socks give the appearance as if your feet are being devoured by one of the most feared predators of the ocean. While wearers of these sharks won’t actually have to worry about getting bitten, you may be able to fool a friend or two into thinking they are.

When wearing them out and about, the socks are sure to supply a few laughs and some interest from friends and passersby. They are also great for keeping your feet warm and toasty during the long cold winter months. Created by Tsarina Tshark, the socks are designed so that one sock looks as if the shark has already eaten one leg, whereas the other sock is looking down so as to appear as if it is chomping down on the other foot.

These cozy and cute shark socks are a great addition to any sock lover’s collection.
