I ride the subway on a daily basis and realized yesterday that I tend to look at peoples shoes quite often.

Another thing I often notice is that guys typically pay very little attention to their socks. It’s as if they reach in their sock drawer and randomly pull out the first pair they touch.

I’ll be the first to admit that I wear dross socks almost all the time, with exception to when I’m working out. You might not realize how often people notice your socks, but they do and it’s time to start making a statement.

Stripes, colors, shapes… there’s a little something for everyone. Add a little flavor to your feet and I can almost guarantee that at some point someone’s going to say, “nice socks.”

I’m not going to load you down with links to buy socks, but the next time you’re out shopping take a moment and spend some time looking at the vast variety of options available.

Oh, and here’s a confession. I have a pair of socks that have been deemed my “airport socks.” Why? You know how you have to take your shoes off when going through TSA? When I wear this particula pair of socks the agents almost ALWAYS comment about them and it makes the process much more pleasant.
