Unless you are lucky enough to live in a tropical climate 365 days a year, you need a quality collection of socks. You’ve undoubtedly got a full sock drawer already, but no drawer is complete without these items for cold days, warmer days, exercise and nights on the town. Japanese companies have come out with some unique designs and cuts that will have you thinking about socks in a totally new way! Check out these 5 different types!
Have you ever experienced the comfort of “tabi” socks? These socks have a seem around your big toe, separating it from your other toes. The result is the feeling that your feet are well insulated, and you never get that unintentional half wedge effect between your big toe and your first toe. Know what I’m talking about? Try them out and feel the freedom that is Tabi Socks.
In the simplest terms, 5-toed socks are gloves for your feet. There is a wide variety of options in terms of color, material and even style. There are thick wool, full coverage types for the winter and thin, ankle length types for the summer. There are even cotton ones that covers between each of your toes, but are cut off on the ends leaving the tips of your digits exposed. Lots of really fun designs and colors to choose from. Once you’ve tried these you may never wear boring regular socks ever again.
Choosing to wear stockings under your open-toed sandals or high heels is a matter of preference, but there are some unique Japanese styles out there that just might make your mind up. “Fake nail” stockings are all the rage at the moment and with good reason. With bright, sparkly “paint” and even some delicate accents like pearls, these stockings are an instant pedicure! Check them out, I bet you’ve never seen anything like them!
Get a move on with these fabulous outdoor leggings. Great for dancing, hiking, biking or anything that requires you to have a good, unrestricted range of motion. My personal favorite is the dual toned type, but there are many colors to choose from.
For those that need a tighter fit, compression socks are the way to go. These socks will help to support your shin, calf and ankle and improve blood circulation while you train. If you are looking for knee high support, you will find it here!
From five toed socks to fake nail stockings, I’m sure you’ve found something perfect for you from this list. Japanese companies are known for their unique ability to take something totally ordinary and turn it into something amazing and they didn’t disappoint this time either.
