FOOT TRAFFIC- Out with the old—In with the new!

At Foot Traffic, now that we have begun another year, we spend a lot of time looking back at the previous year, reflecting on our business hits and misses. We count on sales history, retailer feedback and good luck to guide us as we look ahead to new opportunities. We barely catch our breath from the holiday sales and even in the chilly winter weather, we are already selling items for spring and summer. But that is the way retail works.
We had a great year in 2013 and are celebrating from head to toe. But we know that each year presents challenges and we need to be ready. No problem— we thrive on new challenges and opportunities!
In 2013, we added many new items to our already large line of legwear and socks.  And, we are currently beginning our designs for 2014, particularly the novelty sock lines, for men and women. We track sales and trends to come up with new ideas but we also like to listen to you, our loyal customers, for new themes and ideas.  About two years ago, a customer asked us to design a pair of socks with books on it. We decided that idea might work, so we added it and —voila! It has been a great success for Foot Traffic! So, if you have any great ideas for, let us know what you would like. We appreciate feedback and can only get better if you tell us what you want. 

We would love to hear from you!

Dog Walking Fashion

I love this photo of ladies from the 1950’s wearing dog collars around their ankles, over their white bobby socks. So fun!

I am not sure if this trend lasted very long, but it was obviously worth photographing.

If you love your dog, we have socks that also have a dog collar … but it is woven into the design so it won’t slide down!

For the love of fashion and dogs, get your collared dog lover socks today and enjoy your walk!


DIYers – We have socks for you!

I happen to be a DIYer and have found that most DIYers love colors, textures and the creativity involved with making something or putting something together-everything from home décor to fashion. There has never been so much activity around creative crafting and ETSY has a lot to do with enabling creative spirits to share and sell their work. ETSY has grown so much that it now represents thousands of DIYers around the world as creative enthusiasts share their love of handmade items. That creative spirit spills over into fashion as most DIYers show their one-of-a-kind personality through their fun wardrobe, combining textures, colors and patterns in unique ways.


Note to Self…

Let There Be Music!


As much as I love holiday music and have it playing non-stop in my car starting the day after Thanksgiving, I don’t need to hear another carol until the same time next year.


Socks for Everyone on Your Shopping List!

Did you know that at Foot Traffic we have over 200 designs for both men and women?



What Your Socks Say About You…..

We love men’s socks—stripe socks, beer socks, flag socks—all kinds of fun novelty socks! You just have to smile when you see a man in fun socks. And don’t forget, just like your tie tells a story about you, so do your socks!


Get Your Holiday On with Foot Traffic!

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love the whole reason for the day. I love seeing my family… I love the chaos… and I love the smells of cinnamon, spice and everything nice that comes out of the kitchen.


2012 Animal Prints Never Go Extinct

Animal Prints a Consistent Fashion Print

In the world of design, the one print direction that seems to be a constant in both fashion and home décor is borrowed from the animal kingdom. Animal prints have remained strong for the past 10 years and don’t seem to be going away any time soon. As a matter of fact, animal prints are considered a “neutral” and are seen mixed with florals and bright colors in crazy combinations that show just how versatile these patterns can be.


Fall 2012 Look Book

Fun and Fashion Legwear for Fall

It’s that time of year and I finally admit that I am tired of the heat. Most of the country experienced a dry, hot summer and any temperature change for the cooler is a welcome relief. Thankfully, fall is upon us and we at Foot Traffic are overly excited as we scan the fall trends that are showcased in the fashion and style magazines.
