Oh, that I should be so lucky not to get to review one, but TWO pairs of funky socks from Ozone Socks!!
These socks very much exceeded my expectations of them. They are high quality, mostly-cotton and feel much cozier/thicker than any printed socks I have bought from my local Wal-Mart or Bargain Shop. Socks on the website range from the standard sock to knee-highs, over-the-knee and tights. There is even a small selection of Men's socks with some very quirky styles! Prices are around $10.00 for the standard length socks but they do have a "sale" section of socks as well. Their website is set up nicely with great pictures,easy browsing and shopping online is also available.
The first pair I tried out were the "Bikerchick Forbidden Fruit" socks. I loved the bright colors, the comfortable fit and the unique print on them. These socks can be shown off with a strappy pair of sandles or heels or worn everyday with your standard sneakers. Apparently the socks+sandles thing was popping up on the runways (I guess THAT'S almost over depending on where you live!) and I loved this look with the white shoes! Can't wait to try it out next spring/summer!
The second pair I got to try were the over-the-knee "Lurex Nouveau" socks. These ones were quite plain gray up until just before the knee and then become covered with a sparkley flowered design towards the top of the sock. I had never worn over-the-knee socks and tried them out with a few skirts. With a knee-length skirt on, they could pass for cute (and warm!) tights, perfect for fall.
Any of the Ozone socks can be dressed up or dressed down, depending on your mood and choice of footwear. They are cute, quirky (really comfy!) and come in a wide range of styles and colors to appeal to almost everyone. These would make a great gift for anyone with a sense of humor or anyone wanting to take a walk on the wild side! Now if only I had some new shoes to go with my new socks....
