Cool Socks - A Street-wear Essential

Cool Socks - A Street-wear Essential

Streetwear style has been a dominant force in fashion culture, its roots taking us back to the 1970's Californian surf and skate culture. Streetwear style can be seen across the ages in punk, hip hop culture, high fashion, couture, and more. With its popularity skyrocketing, modern streetwear style is increasingly becoming about the accessories that complete the look, and one of the most essential streetwear accessories to compliment any streetwear outfit is a pair of snazzy socks.

The humble sock has evolved in recent years; they aren't what it used to be. For many years, socks were there to simply cover your feet. Often an afterthought, they were usually plain, simply black or white, and sometimes even hidden at ankle height. Not any more! Socks are now one of the most important accessories of any street-wear outfit; it is a way to show off your style without breaking the casual streetwear guidelines.
