Up Your Business Fashion Game with Novelty Men’s Dress Socks


Serve Elevated Workwear Looks with the Right Socks

A corporate, business-professional dress code doesn’t mean you can’t wear accessories that show off your personality. You don’t need to dull your shine just because your boss says you have to wear a suit. Try a pair of men’s funny dress socks from Foot Traffic the next time you head to the office. We think they’ll make you feel happier and more expressive, even if few people see them.

Here are our favorite pairs of cotton-blend novelty socks for men to wear to work.


Men’s Novelty Socks that Match Your Profession
You devoted a lot of time to studying for your profession while you were in college or trade school, and you love what you do. It makes sense that you’d like to sport a pair of socks that tells the world what you do – even at work where everyone already knows.

Our profession-themed socks are ideal to wear to work – and they make great gifts, too. What do you do for work? We probably have socks for you.

If you work in the medical field doing almost anything, you’ll like our medical-themed socks for men, featuring the caduceus, or Staff of Hermes, stethoscopes, vials, medication, and more. These socks are ideal for doctors, pharmacists, nurses, lab technicians, and more. For socks especially for specific roles in the medical field, our “Trust Me, I’m a Doctor” socks or “Bad-Ass Nurse” socks fit the bill.

Nobody asks you questions when you say that you’re an accountant, but they’ll probably ask you where you got your funny socks, at the very least. Our currency socks and our “You Can Count on Me” socks are perfect for the CPA in your life.


Educators can wear our “Teachers Change the World” socks to school or while teaching virtually. Firefighters can spend their off-days in our fiery socks celebrating their work. And carpenters, contractors, and handymen alike will wear our tool socks with pride under their steel-toed boots. We also have socks for barbers, real estate agents, railroad workers, mechanics, lawyers, and more! Shop our full line of profession-themed funny socks for men.

Funny Dress Socks for Men in Wild Colors and Patterns
Perhaps you don’t want quite-so-literal work socks emblazoned with graphics that describe your job, but you still gravitate toward bright colors and eye-catching patterns. We have funny socks for men that fit the bill.


For starters, our men’s mosaic socks are simply-patterned in an all-over square print, but the colors are absolutely stunning: purples, blues, and golds. Your coworkers will come down with a serious case of ankle envy!

If you like those bright squares, but are looking for something with a few more colors, our bright squares socks are right up your alley. An almost Mondrian-inspired pattern features yellow, red, orange, blue, and green, so they’ll match any shirt or suit pants you choose to wear.


For true self-expression at work, you can’t go wrong with emoji socks. Our novelty socks for men feature tons of classic emoji options you can find on your cell phone, but they’re on your ankles, instead. How many emotions do you go through each day at work? We bet you can find all of them on our funny socks!

Subtle Novelty Socks for Men, for the Most Strict of Dress Codes
Even if you can’t get away with wearing funny socks to work, Foot Traffic has options that are still interesting without being over-the-top.

Our multi-stripe socks come in a black, gray, and blue pattern that match nearly any color of suit. Because stripes are a more traditional pattern, they won’t raise red flags about your wardrobe while you express yourself in your office.

Similarly, our black and gray chevron socks look perfectly neutral in the space between your pant leg hem and the top of your wingtip shoes, but the secret is hidden: pops of bright blue at the heel, toe, and cuff! Our men’s black polka dot socks give off a similar vibe, although the polka dots are a little more playful than the chevron stripe, for when you’re really feeling yourself.

For a subtle graphic sock, try our socks emblazoned with tiny bees against a gray background. The bees are so small that they’ll read like a texture at a distance, rather than an image, but the all-over pattern also makes them look preppy and refined. We bet you can find a way to match them to your tie for ultimate accessory coordination.

After your shift at work is over, you don’t feel like doing much, even if you need to add to your wardrobe or fun important errands.

Are High-Quality Socks Really Worth It?

Stocking Up on Novelty Socks or Fuzzy Socks is Easy at Foot Traffic

Unless you’re involved in epic athletic pursuits like hiking the Appalachian Trail or running marathons, you don’t necessarily need to invest in socks that are $20 or more per pair and made of magical unicorn tail hairs to get the job done.

But you’re still doing a disservice to your feet if you consistently choose to wear cheaply-made polyester socks that stretch, sag, and thin out in the heels or toes after just a couple of wears.

On the other end of the spectrum, you might be wearing stiff socks with rough internal fibers that feel irritating to your feet and legs.

Either way, you could be wearing much better quality socks on a daily basis during all your activities without emptying your life savings – and that’s where Foot Traffic comes in.

High-Quality Novelty Socks and Funny Socks
Stark differences divide cheap novelty socks from high-quality ones from Foot Traffic.

  • High-quality novelty socks have crisp imagery and lettering in the designs. Cheap ones don’t. What good is a patterned novelty sock if the images are so blurred that no one can tell what it is?

    Foot Traffic solves that problem by working with some of the most dedicated sock manufacturers to create clean graphics on our novelty socks. And our designs are actually clever and fun that speak to your personality, not a generic all-over holiday pattern.

  • Cheap novelty socks have a tangle of threads behind the imagery. These masses can be irritating to your feet and legs, feeling itchy as the day wears on.

    Few things are worse than wearing terrible socks throughout the day. Foot Traffic socks are manufactured carefully to avoid this result, so you don’t feel like spiders are crawling around in your socks (the horror!) or that you’re walking on pebbles.

  • The best novelty socks are appropriately sized for the wearer. Foot Traffic novelty socks come in men’s, women’s, youth, and children’s sizes, which means there’s one for almost every size of feet.

    The one-size-fits-every-human approach for dollar-store novelty socks just doesn’t work. You end up trying to squeeze your feet into too-small socks, or walking around with your socks wadding up under your feet because they’re too large to stay up.

  • Novelty socks should be made of soft fibers, because your feet feel great in your shoes when your socks are kind to your skin.

    Rough, scratchy threads are a no-no at Foot Traffic, but for cheap fun socks? We can’t say the same.

Foot Traffic Fuzzy Socks Versus Cheap Imitations

If you’re a person with feet and feelings, you probably enjoy wearing fuzzy socks from time-to-time. There’s something so soothing about pulling them over your toes and heels and basking in the warmth and softness they provide.

Unfortunately, like novelty socks, cheap fuzzy socks are not up to par when it comes to quality and comfort. It comes down to the weave and thread fibers!

The fuzzy socks at Foot Traffic are made of microfiber, which is a synthetic fiber that’s finer than one denier. To compare, silk is one denier, about one-fifth of the diameter of human hair. A dense weave creates warm and super-soft fuzzy socks that you can wear as you lounge, in bed, or out running errands.

However, the cheapened version of these socks use wide threads, loosely knit, to achieve the fuzzy look. The result is a sock that sags and slips down your foot while you wear them. They also can irritate the bottom of your feet because of their wide weave applying pressure to your skin. Even worse, they aren’t very warm because their threads are not dense enough.

The Best Place to Order Socks Online is FootTraffic.com

When our founder, Charlie, opened his first specialty sock store, he quickly found out that his customers were looking for a big selection of funny socks and novelty socks – and he just couldn’t find them.

So, he decided to design and make them himself, with a focus on style, quality materials, and well-engineered construction that resulted in high-quality novelty socks. Charlie knew that good socks mean good days – and he’s continued that mission since 1986.

Today, you can buy any pair of Foot Traffic socks, hosiery, leggings, tights, leg warmers, and more on our website and have them delivered to your door. It’s our favorite place to get socks – but we might be a little biased (but for good reason).

A Day in the Life of Foot Traffic Tights


Spring and Winter Accessories for Fashion, Fun, and Layering

This is a true account of a customer’s experience with our signature cotton tights.

I’m a bit of a tights aficionado. Since Zooey Deschanel made them most-recently iconic with her fit-and-flare dresses and cardigans on New Girl, I’ve been sporting opaque tights any time I wear a dress.

The biggest downside to most opaque tights is that they snag, slip, and roll down at the waist. I’ve gone through lots of pairs of tights over the years, and every single pair has done all these things, even those from companies that claim theirs don’t. I’ve tried them all: regular nylon tights, fleece-lined tights, high-denier tights.

I had not, however, tried predominantly cotton tights, but I had heard good things about the Signature Combed Cotton Tights that Foot Traffic makes. I thought I’d give them a try! Here’s what I discovered after wearing them for a few of my favorite activities – the ultimate test.



Foot Traffic Cotton Tights Observations
The first thing I noticed about Foot Traffic cotton tights – which are 60 percent cotton, 35 percent nylon, and 5 percent spandex – is that before you wear them, they are quite narrowly cut. I was worried that they wouldn’t fit me, but they are like magic! They stretched exactly where they were supposed to.

The second thing I noticed was the waistband on these tights. They are not made of the same material as the rest of the tights, so they aren’t just a simple hem or edge. The elastic waistband is sewn separately into the tights. It felt sturdy, like a favorite pair of lounge shorts.


My First Outfit with My Foot Traffic Tights

For a day of thrift shopping with my sister, I paired my black cotton tights with a patterned t-shirt dress, coordinating cardigan, and booties. The cotton tights were smooth enough that my dress flowed right over them, without catching, like it might on thicker leggings. And because the cotton tights were weighty enough, I could wear them with my booties without adding a pair of socks.

The store we wanted to visit was located about a 45-minute drive away, so this would really be the tights’ first test: being comfortable on the trip.

I drive an F-150 pick-up truck, which means I have to climb up into it. I also sit very upright because of the way the bucket seat is designed. I figured both these movements and body positions would cause me some issues, but I got two huge surprises.

Getting into my truck was super easy, because the tights left me feeling flexible rather than squeezed and restricted. And I was pleased to see that the waistband of the tights didn’t roll down like I expected them to. Normally after a car ride, I would have to get out and hoist up my tights from ankle to waist, but not with these!

They also stayed in place throughout our shopping excursion, so I could browse without worrying about bagging, sagging tights. And because they’re nice and thick, but breathable, I stayed the perfect temperature – never sweating, nor feeling chilly!

My Second Outfit with My Cotton Tights
My hobbies are varied. I consider myself very indoorsy, but I also have an interest in woodworking and home improvement projects. My garage is home to my “shop,” which contains a variety of hand tools, power tools, and saws.

My garage isn’t heated, however, and projects are never complete, just because it’s winter.So my second time wearing my Foot Traffic tights was layered under a pair of my favorite jeans while I worked in my unheated garage.

Layering with tights can be uncomfortable, but with Foot Traffic tights, I stayed cozy without feeling bulky. This time, I chose to wear socks inside my work boots, mostly for extra padding while I stood on concrete, but also to see whether these tights were comfortable on my toes. They were! And because the waistband could be pulled up to the narrowest part of my waist, they stayed smoothly above the top of my jeans.

With this outfit, I realized that these tights are truly all-around workhorses! I feel like I can do anything in them; they’re the most useful and versatile item in my wardrobe.

Where to Buy the Best Knee-High Socks and Tights? Foot Traffic!

After wearing these cotton tights, I’m excited to see what else Foot Traffic has in store. My wish list includes footless tights, knee-high socks, and more!

Good news for me: Foot Traffic makes awesome novelty socks for women and men, bamboo socks, leggings, leg warmers … the list goes on. And I can shop for them all online and have them shipped straight to me, without having to go from store-to-store to find what I’m looking for.

Could Sleeping with Socks on Be Good for Your Health?

Doze Off in a Pair of Foot Traffic Socks

Have you ever had trouble falling asleep or getting comfortable in bed? The National Sleep Foundation says this is actually quite common, and the culprit is not what you’d expect. It isn’t your mattress, and it isn’t necessarily a serious case of insomnia. Sometimes it’s just cold feet!

Even if your feet don’t necessarily feel too chilled when you climb into your bed, feet that need warming can actually keep you awake. Let’s explore why that is, and help you choose the best socks to help you catch some Zs.

The Science of Cold Feet
When your feet (and any extremity really) is cold, your blood vessels constrict and slow your blood circulation.

Slow circulation keeps your feet cold and can prevent you from falling asleep quickly and easily. A ritual of warming your feet each night can even signal your brain that it’s time for sleeping, which will also aid in falling asleep. It sounds so simple, doesn’t it?

Remedying Cold Feet
Warming your feet before bedtime and keeping them warm is shown to help you fall asleep. There are three ways you can keep your toes warm before bedtime.

First, you can take a relaxing soak in the bathtub before bedtime, or simply warm your feet under running water from the tap before thoroughly drying them off and hopping into bed.

The second, and perhaps simpler, solution is to put on a pair of socks designated for sleeping. And third, you can use some type of heating mechanism, such as uncooked rice in a tube sock, to help keep your feet warm at the foot of your bed. (Simply fill a tube sock with uncooked rice and secure the opening. Then, microwave your rice sock for 30 seconds at a time and place it under the covers at the foot of your bed.)

Other Health Benefits of Wearing Socks to Bed
Socks can help your feet stay warm, but there are other reasons you might choose to wear socks in bed.

  • Socks are shown to help prevent hot flashes because it helps keep your core body temperature cooler.

  • Putting on a pair of cotton socks after you apply your favorite moisturizer to your feet can help prevent cracked, dry heels.

  • For people with certain circulatory issues like Raynaud’s disease, wearing socks can help keep your feet warm and blood circulating to prevent an attack, which usually involves swollen and throbbing toes.

Choosing the Right Socks: Knee Socks, Fuzzy Socks, and More
Socks made of natural fibers, like cashmere or wool are highly recommended for sleeping. However, some people don’t particularly like these fabrics. Cotton socks are another excellent option. Our men’s and women’s novelty socks are 65% cotton so they are comfortable and not too heavy if you prefer socks that are light weight. And, they are fun so who doesn’t like to go to bed with a smile on your face (and feet!)

If you’re worried about your feet catching in the sheets because they will no longer glide across your toes, consider a pair of super soft, microfiber fuzzy socks. The fibers are slick enough to allow the sheets to glide, but they’re also soft enough to feel lovely against your skin as you drift off to dreamland. (Our customers say they’re soft as bunny fur and as warm as their favorite blanket!)


If your legs also tend to get cold as you sleep, consider wearing a pair of knee high socks, which provide coverage for your calf. If the cuff bothers you as you sleep, roll it down one fold. Taller socks are ideal for keeping your legs covered, even as the legs of your pajama pants ride up as you roll over and move about at night.

Some people also prefer to wear toe socks to bed, because the seamless fabric between their toes stretches the muscles and tendons in their feet and provides relief from soreness. Like knee-high socks, our toe socks end high up on your calm for extra warmth and comfort.

Experiment with a variety of pairs of socks until you find some that work best for you. It all comes down to personal preference, after all.

Where to Buy a Variety of Socks for Sleeping
If you’re looking for a one-stop shop for all kinds of socks, shop at Foot Traffic! For more than 30 years, Foot Traffic has been making and selling socks, so you know we do it right.

10 Ways to Wear Tights from Foot Traffic

Add fun, color and warmth this winter!

Tights can add an element of interest and utility to any outfit, and even change the whole look of a ‘fit you’ve worn repeatedly for an unexpected effect. Try one of these ten ways to wear tights from Foot Traffic, and show off your look for us by tagging us on Instagram at @FootTraffic.

Wear Tights with a Casual Patterned Dress and Long Cardigan
Your favorite cotton or cotton-blend patterned dress needs a solid color paired with it to provide a visual contrast. Achieve this contrast by wearing a pair of solid-colored Foot Traffic tights for women with your favorite casual dress. For winter, add a long cardigan on top to lengthen your silhouette and stay warm. We recommend our Signature Combed Cotton

Tights, which have a high thread count for extra thickness and insulation and a silky feel. Layer with Super long OTK’s, novelty socks or leg warmers for additional texture and warmth.

Pair Fancy Tights with a Formal Frock
Headed to a formal event, like a wedding or a gala? Amp up your formal cocktail dress with a pair of tights to create a more elegant overall look. We highly recommend a pair of textured tights with a solid-colored dress made of sateen, chiffon, or a similar fabric. A solid-colored dress gets you more mileage than one with a trendy fabric pattern or accent beading, and it won’t compete for attention with your tights. We especially love our Windsor Tights or Double Diamond Tights in black with a formal dress.

Tights Layered Under Holey Denim
Pre-ripped denim remains on-trend. If you’re more traditional, perhaps you prefer to wear out your jeans yourself. Either way, if you have jeans with holes in the knees, you can add interest to them by layering a pair of patterned tights underneath. It’s an edgy look that pairs equally well with black pumps and a dressy blouse or a pair of boots or sneakers and a tee-shirt. Such a versatile look is best achieved with our Fishnet Tights for a more eye-catching style.

Wearing Tights for Warmth
One of the most logical reasons to wear tights is for an added layer of warmth if you need to spend time outside or if you tend to get chilly in the office or at home. Our Microfiber Tights come in 18 fashion colors and are designed to never roll down despite an incredible stretch. They’re comfortable to wear under denim, thicker leggings, or dress slacks. If you prefer to separate your socks from your tights when dressing in layers, our Footless Tights are an option for adding insulation without bulk.

Tights and Shorts Work Well with Either Combat Boots or Oxfords
Style a tough look with combat boots or a sweet style with a pair of lace-up oxfords when you pair shorts with tights. Because when you wear shorts, the majority of your leg shows, you have the perfect opportunity to choose a pair of tights with a pattern that varies throughout the length of your leg.

Wearing Tights on Date Night
For an important date night, pair a luxe-looking pair of tights with a dress and pumps. Keep your dress a solid color – but any color and cut you choose – and then select a pair of dramatic tights with a texture to add visual interest. For even more interest, layer on a fun pair of fun socks.

Vibrant Tights with a Neutral Sweater Dress
When it’s cold outside, but you have to look your best, a little black dress is a girl’s best friend. Warmly-knit fabrics accented with a pair of our Signature Combed Cotton Tights in colors like peacock, purple, or rust, or a pair of our Microfiber Tights in bright hues like kelly green, purple royal, and fuschia. Layer with a pair of black fishnets and voila! Add a pair of novelty socks for even more fun!

Tights and Leg Warmers

On days when it’s exceptionally cold, but you find yourself wearing a dress or skirt to work or school, Fleece-Lined Tights and a pair of coordinating leg warmers are your saving grace. The fleece-lined tights feel like you’re wearing an extra layer of clothing, while the leg warmers protect your lower leg from cold temperatures and breezes.

Skater Skirt Style
A vintage graphic tee paired with a skater skirt is a fun way to express yourself and add a feminine flair to an otherwise masculine top. Whether it’s a band tee, a screen-printed souvenir tee from an event, or a floral patterned tee, a skater skirt and a pair of solid tights provide coverage and warmth while creating a hip and on-trend look.


Rompers and Tights
Rompers hit their peak popularity a few summers ago, but they remain a staple in many women’s wardrobes. A romper can be dressed up or dressed down, depending on how you wear them. For example, a romper with a simple pair of sandals creates a casual summer look. However, a romper with a pair of tights, booties, and cardigan sweater is a much dressier look you can sport year-round. You are essentially wearing a romper like you would a basic dress. In keeping with the spirit of the comfort and flexibility of a romper, we love our Rayon from Bamboo Tights with one! Our ribbed-knit tights or cable-knit tights are soft and warm, perfect for wearing underneath romper shorts in all seasons.

Shop Our Huge Selection of Tights
Foot Traffic is known for our novelty socks for men and women, but what many of our customers realize is we’re their ultimate source for other footwear and legwear, like leggings and tights. With so many tights to choose from, you’ll visit our website and end up finding new ways to reinvigorate your wardrobe.

Why Toe Socks from Foot Traffic Can Be Good For Your Feet

Fun Toe Socks Are Both Useful and Stylish

For decades, Foot Traffic socks have been a favorite choice for fashionable feet. Our durable, stylish novelty socks are the most comfortable on the market, and the detailed images and patterns stitched into our footwear set us apart from all the rest. But did you know that Foot Traffic also specializes in fun toe socks ?

We need to take a moment to brag about our funny toe socks, honestly. These unique socks fit like gloves for your feet, if regular socks fit like mittens. Each of your toes get its own little sleeve for comfort and warmth. It’s not all about being cute, though! Toe socks can provide health benefits, according to the medical and physical training communities. Toe socks can:

● Reduce friction between your toes and from your shoes.

● Improve your foot’s form as you run or walk.

● Prevent athlete’s foot.

● Improve blood circulation.

● Allow you to wear toe separators for additional benefits.

So, don’t skip over a pair of toe socks. They might just be what you’re looking for, in ultimate foot comfort. Toe Socks Can Reduce Friction Toe socks provide a layer of fabric between each of your toes. This reduces the likelihood that you’ll suffer from blisters, hangnails, or other injuries caused by pressure or rubbing while you move about. In fact, professional distance runners wear toe socks to help prevent blisters, which are all too common in athletes. But blisters and other pressure or friction injuries can happen to anyone, and toe socks could be the perfect remedy for them.​

Toe Socks Can Improve Your Running or Walking Form

If you’re working toward your fitness goals or are already a pro at it, you might consider wearing toe socks to improve your running or walking form. Wearing casual shoes for years can change the way your foot hits the ground during a stride, and toe socks could help you improve your form and reduce the risk of injury.

The most efficient running form is known as the “toe-off,” when your center of gravity rolls through the ball of your foot, and your toes help to push your stride forward. In regular socks, your toes touch each other, and you’re often unaware of how your toes are working together. With the fabric between your toes, you’ll get sensory feedback so you’re aware of where your toes are and how they’re working during the “toe-off.”

Even if you aren’t too interested in fitness, at the very least you can try wearing toe socks to improve your body weight distribution and balance. Toe socks can help you achieve body balance by aligning your toes correctly and stretching them out. The tiny muscles in your toes and feet will thank you!

Toe Socks Can Prevent Athlete’s Foot

Athlete’s foot is the common name for a fungal infection between the toes. It occurs most often in people with sweaty feet – usually a result of wearing tight-fitting shoes or socks for long periods of time. Toe socks could reduce your risk of developing athlete’s foot because the fabric between your toes absorbs your sweat and pulls it away from your skin.

Toe Socks Can Improve Blood Circulation

The unique design of toe socks, which stretches your toes apart, can actually encourage proper blood circulation throughout your feet! Our seamless toe socks remove restrictions regular socks might have, so your blood is free to flow without the struggle of pressure points or uncomfortable toe angles. Optimized blood circulation also can prevent the sensation of numbness and tingling in your feet.

Wearing Toe Socks Lets You Reap the Benefits of Wearing Toe Separators

Toe separators are a silicone or plastic band with dividers that sit snugly between each of your toes while you relax. These toe separators are said to increase flexibility and improve toe alignment, both of which can relieve pain from foot conditions like:

● Claw toe

● Bunions

● Arthritis

● Gout

● Bone spurs

● Plantar fasciitis​

● Muscle cramps

● Hammertoes

● Morton’s neuroma

● Metatarsalgia

These toe spreaders can improve your balance, posture, and appearance of your feet – but wearing them with regular socks defeats the purpose. Toe socks from Foot Traffic don’t restrict your toes, and allow your separators to slide on and stay put as you put up your feet and rest for a while.

Cold Weather Fashion Tips for Women

Foot Traffic Socks, Printed Tights, and Leg Warmers are Ideal Accessories for Winter

Are you spending more time outdoors this year either meeting up with friends in outdoor cafes or taking 6′ distancing COVID walks? Or perhaps it is happy hour around a campfire. Why not spruce up your winter wardrobe for those much needed social occasions. Winter fashion gives you the opportunity to layer up and incorporate unexpected patterns and textures into your wardrobe. The best part about winter layering is that you get to reinvent your outfits every day; no two have to be alike, depending on the accessories you wear, and how you coordinate your sweater or cardigan with your blouse or dress. Unique socks, tights, and leg warmers are perfect for layering and adding interest to your look. You can get them all from Foot Traffic and have them shipped straight to you, so you don’t have to face the cold temperatures without your new gear.

How to Wear Fleece-Lined Socks
Our cozy and soft fleece-lined socks are ideal for when snow and ice covers the ground and there’s a bitter bite of chill in the air. They come in four stylish colors: black, gray, burgundy, and chocolate. But their versatile color schemes are not even the best thing about them. Knee-high socks lined with fleece are incredibly warm and soft against your skin. They provide a layer of both insulation and cushion you most often get only from fleece-lined leggings and tights, which can add bulk around your waist with certain garments, especially stiff denim. These incredibly cozy socks pair perfectly with boots or sneakers and keep your feet and lower leg toasty in all kinds of winter weather. We especially love how they look peeking out of calf- height boots for a pop of color to complement an otherwise neutral outfit or to match colors in a patterned blouse with a cardigan over the top.

How to Wear Printed Tights
A pair of microfiber printed tights really sets off an outfit. Our Foot Traffic printed tights are especially unique because each pair is individually printed, so the designs and colors are unlike anything you’ll find elsewhere. Each pair in our one-size-fits-most line fits women 5’ to 5’8” tall and between 100 and 160 pounds, although we offer plus sizes, too!

Wear a pair of printed tights with a solid-colored dress or tunic. You can also top them with a ​solid-colored or denim skirt. You also might consider wearing a cardigan or scarf in a color you pull from the pattern in your new tights. For a neutral print legging, choose a pair comprised of monotone coloration, or consider cheetah or leopard print , the ultimate neutral that adds excitement to any outfit.

How to Wear Leg Warmers
Leg warmers are such a versatile winter accessory! If you don’t already have a pair, order from Foot Traffic and see how many benefits you can get from these special accessories, especially our Super Long leg warmers . You can wear leg warmers indoors or out with almost any outfit! Our 39-inch extra long leg warmers cover from thigh to ankle, so they provide the warmth of an extra pair of pants without adding tightness to your waist or interfering with your dress or skirt during outdoor walks or commutes. Shorter leg warmers, like our 22” cable knit leg warmers , can transform a pair of flats or pumps into boot-like footwear, or make a pair of pajamas cozier as you relax on the sofa. They cover only from ankle to knee. If you plan to wear our leg warmers all day long at work or on a date, coordinate the color of them with other accessories, like your jewelry, belt, or scarf.

How to Wear Bamboo Tights
Rayon made from bamboo is a comfortable, breathable fabric that wicks sweat away from your body as you transition from the cold outdoor temperatures to much warmer indoor temperatures. It’s super soft, too, making it a cozy layering option for winter. Choose from footless or footed bamboo tights in solid, neutral colors that go with any winter outfit. Ribbed or cable textures add visual interest without interfering with the patterns in your dress, skirt, tunic, or long jacket. They’re also perfect for wearing under your jeans in frigid temperatures to keep warm while you’re outdoors.

How to Gift Holiday Novelty Socks the Right Way


Foot Traffic Socks Make Unique Holiday Gifts for Women, Men, and Kids

It’s 2020, and as the years progress, so does sock technology and design. Gone are the days that teenagers open up their holiday gifts and pretend to be thrilled with a package of plain white socks from Grandma. Modern socks are way more exciting, and dare we say more thrilling, than the cotton tubes of yore.

The novelty sock game at Foot Traffic is on point, so you’ll never see disappointed faces opening packages filled with our fun and silly socks for the whole family. In fact, our socks make amazing gifts for the holidays and are ideal for gifting in all kinds of ways. Bring a smile to your gift recipient’s face and joy to their feet with a pair of novelty socks from Foot Traffic.

Novelty Socks as Stocking Stuffers

The easiest way to gift novelty socks is in your family members’ stockings! Silly socks are the perfect stocking stuffer because of their size and affordable price. They’re also a thoughtful departure from the same types of stocking stuffer gifts you’ve given each year, like candy, toothbrushes, gift cards, scratch tickets, or small games, for example.

We love:

Hang Novelty Socks on the Tree

If Santa visits your house, perhaps he participated in a little Christmas tree decorating! Rather than wrapping socks with other items or adding them to a long list of stocking stuffers, make the giving extra special by hanging them like ornaments on your tree.

The crisp images and bright colors on our novelty socks will stand out from the evergreen branches and other ornaments, so your family can easily spot them and find the pair that’s meant to be theirs.

We recommend:

Foot Traffic Socks in a Countdown Calendar

There are eight days of Hanukkah, so why not give eight pairs of socks to your loved one? Just like the Maccabees didn’t run out of oil, your gift recipient will never run out of socks to wear.

You can also give a pair of socks each week leading up until Christmas – or a pair each day leading up until Christmas if you really want to go big! Give socks for the 12 days of Christmas, between Christmas Day and Three Kings Day or the Epiphany. 

Let’s illustrate an example with one holiday in particular. For example, for Hanukkah, include:

Women’s Novelty Socks Inside a Gift Basket

Assemble a themed gift basket, complete with novelty socks. Coffee lovers will enjoy receiving a spectacular new coffee mug, their favorite freshly-roasted beans, and a pair of coffee-themed novelty socks from Foot Traffic.

Fans of gardening will love getting some new gardening tools and plant pots, along with a pair of gardening socks to match their favorite hobby. Give your child’s teacher a pair of novelty socks, along with gift cards for a local coffee shop and office supply store. 

Use your imagination. The gift basket possibilities are truly limitless! Take a look at our past blogs for more inspiration.[1] 

Consider socks like:

Novelty Socks for Kids with Matching Pajamas or Silly Holiday Sweater
Start a new tradition in your house. Let your kids unwrap a new pair of pajamas or holiday outfit and a storybook on Christmas Eve. Why not include a pair of novelty socks to match their new clothes?

Tuck them in for the night after they read their story, and they’ll have something new and fun to wear on their feet on Christmas morning!

Choose socks like:

Load ‘Em Up with Novelty Socks for Every Occasion

Choose our cozy slipper socks for staying in on the weekend, bamboo socks for exercising, trouser socks for date night or other dressy occasions, job-themed socks for the weekdays, and a pair of hobby-inspired socks for Friday, like our Men’s Golf Socks.

Women’s Novelty Socks with a Pair of Cute Boots

Cozy Up in the Warmest Socks from Foot Traffic

A Wide Selection of Winter Novelty Socks for Men and Women

At Foot Traffic Headquarters, we got our first snow in October, which got us thinking about staying warm this winter. Winter is one of our crew’s favorite seasons because we get to sport our silliest, most fashionable, and coziest fun socks for men and women, and it’s the perfect temperature to do it.

All summer long, we look longingly at our slipper socks and microfiber fuzzy socks, waiting for the day we can slip them onto our feet and relish in how wonderful they are. (Sometimes we even turn the air conditioner way down, so we can pretend it’s cold outside, and that we definitely need these warm socks.)

So you can imagine how thrilled we are to see the temperatures cooling. We hope you’re excited too! And if you’re not, maybe our super cheerful and snuggly socks can set your mind right.

Wear Women’s Slipper Socks Around the House

Opt to leave your house shoes by the bed and wear our women’s slipper socks all over the house. We offer so many designs to suit your personality and interests, and every pair has a non-skid pad on the bottom to prevent slipping on slick floors – even in the kitchen as you sleepily brew coffee in the morning. Scooby Doo needed these socks for grip before taking off running, and honestly, so do you.

Slipper socks are a winter staple for keeping your toes warm and cozy during any activity you do in the comfort of your own home. They’re also great to take along with you on trips, so you don’t have to walk barefoot through hotel rooms. And if you’re in need of a stocking stuffer, slipper socks make the grade every time.

Novelty slipper socks at Foot Traffic are just $10 per pair, and you won’t find our fun designs anywhere else. Kansas and Dorothy fans will love our Red Slipper Socks; lovers of all things spooky – or perhaps podiatrists – will adore our Bones Slipper Sock; and we have so many options for people whose best friends are animals: Hedgehog Slipper Socks, Cat Slipper Socks, Fox Slipper Socks, and more. You also won’t want to miss our holiday slipper socks, featuring a very distinguished nutcracker.

Cuddly Microfiber Fuzzy Socks for Couch Potatoes
When you’ve had enough of chilly weather and cold toes in your own home, don a pair of our microfiber fuzzy socks in a huge range of colors. We have a pair to match every set of pajamas or sweats you own!

We’re told our microfiber fuzzy socks for women are soft like rabbit fur and warm as a blanket fresh from the laundry – but why don’t you decide if that’s true by ordering a pair or two to try? At just $9 a pair, these must-haves are an affordable way to keep warm without turning up the heat and ending up with a high utility bill. Buy three or more, and save a dollar on every pair.

Unlike comparable fuzzy socks sold elsewhere, ours are densely-knit to keep your feet fully covered without stretching out. Our customers report they are non-binding, so they can wear them all day without any discomfort around the elastic. And because they’re so incredibly soft, you can wear them to bed; your sheets will glide right over them without friction, and your toes will stay warm all night long.

Look for holiday colors? Try our red fuzzy socks or our lime green fuzzy socks.

Extra Soft Bamboo Socks for Men and Women

Although our Bamboo Socks weren’t designed with the intention of being cozy socks, they turned out to be one of our customers’ favorite choices for general wear throughout all four seasons. We especially like them because they are so soft and help keep your feet dry and comfortable by wicking away sweat. Wear our bamboo socks to the gym, to work, inside your winter boots, while you work from home, or for lazy winter days curled up with a good book and a mug of hot cocoa.

Bamboo is one of the earth’s greatest renewable resources. It’s strong and durable, and grows at an incredible rate. It requires 65 percent less water to grow than other trees and plants, and even releases more oxygen into the air than other flora. Our socks are made with 30 percent bamboo yarn, 48 percent cotton, 17 percent nylon, and 5 percent spandex for a soft, breathable fiber mix that feels amazing on your feet.

For colder months, we recommend purchasing our women’s bamboo crew socks or our men’s bamboo crew socks, although we also offer bamboo no-show socks for both men and women. This season’s colorways include black, white, mustard, indigo, and smoke – some of the most on-trend hues for fall and winter.


Socks for People Who Run Warm (and Holiday Socks, Too!)

If you’re someone who always feels uncomfortably warm, and you aren’t looking for insulation for your feet, but still need to wear socks, Foot Traffic can help you with our novelty socks for men and women. They’re thinner than a slipper sock, but still durable and well-constructed.

Quality construction and crisp graphics set our novelty socks apart from the rest on the market. We specialize in novelty socks only, which means we can dedicate our time to perfecting them – and we have, for the last 30 years.

Choose from silly sock patterns with sassy sayings, like, our Love the Wine You’re With Women’s Socks, or go a more artistic route with our Hamsa Women’s Socks. We have a huge variety of silly socks for men, too, like our Men’s Smiley Face Socks for channeling your inner Forrest Gump, or our Men’s Alien Abduction Socks.

Our holiday novelty socks for women and men are in stock, too. Grab a few pairs as a stocking stuffer, or for completing your outfit for Christmas day or one of the festive nights of Hanukkah:

Your Feet Will Love Our Winter Socks

Bare feet are cold, sad feet. Cheer them up by donning a pair of cozy, fuzzy socks or slipper socks from Foot Traffic. Shop online for yourself, or someone on your holiday shopping list. We even carry fun socks for kids, women’s footless tights, leg warmers, and more!
