FAVORITE FLAG SOCKS

chad

It’s FOURTH OF JULY week and this Saturday Americans will be celebrating across the country. From parades to concerts to backyard BBQ’s and fireworks, people will be celebrating our wonderful country and the freedom that we each enjoy. It is a time to put aside our differences and celebrate our great nation—“with liberty and justice for all.” We have a lot to celebrate, particularly the recent ruling by the Supreme Court that guarantees a right to same-sex marriage.
Of course, celebrating and honoring the nation is fun and there are traditions that families and communities share. Hot dogs and hamburgers top the menu charts and donning red, white and blue adds to the festivities.
At FOOT TRAFFIC one of our best -selling socks are the flag socks, offered in both men’s and women’s.
Whatever your traditions are, our flag socks will set a patriotic tone no matter where you are celebrating.
Buy an extra “pair-to- share”  and spread the American love! Hurry!

SHARK ALERT!

thsharkweek2

THE SHARKS ARE COMING!!
SHARK WEEK, sponsored by the Discovery Channel,has already begun the online countdown calendar (http://sharkweekcountdown.com/) to a thrill seeking week of shark attacks and shark facts. Sunday, July 5 is the official kick off and the week will not disappoint those of us anxiously awaiting new releases of shark stories. Although Shark Week is  starting earlier this year than in the 27 previous years, there will be more content in August as well, extending this “summer of sharks”. I know I will be watching with one hand covering my eyes, one hand in the snack bowl, and my feet propped up on the foot stool wearing my favorite Foot Traffic 3D shark socks.

And, if that isn’t enough, Sharknado, “Oh Hell No!” 3 will air on July 22 on the Syfy channel at 9:00 pm. The ridiculous antics from Sharknado I and Shaknado 2 will continue with a crazy cast that will include David Hasselhoff and Bo Derek. And, if that doesn’t get you excited enough, Mark Cuban is the President of the United States and Ann Coulter is the Vice President. Yes, so many reasons to get your shark socks now and be ready for some heavy duty shark attacks this summer.

To enhance this exciting “summer of sharks”, host a shark party and give everyone a pair of Foot Traffic 3Dshark socks to wear. Don’t forget the Bloody Mary’s and spicy fish crackers!

Father’s Day Fish Tale

lures socksjohn fishing1587_2233_large

It is not too soon to be thinking about Father’s Day! Your dad /husband, brother/son may be expecting some attention on that day so you will be a hero when you come up with the perfect gift for “dad.” Do you have some favorite “dad times”? I know I do.
Although my dad is no longer with us, he is in my heart every day and I have so many good memories to draw upon. This father’s day as I look to my brothers, I can see they are awesome dads and I know they learned so much from our dad. There are so many lessons that dad shared with us, it is nearly impossible to share them all. So, I will pass on a DAD experience that I know my family would agree upon as an important part of our lives, and that was fishing.
Dad was an executive at a large company where he enjoyed a wonderful career. To counter living in a big city, his favorite “get-away” was fishing. That meant that every summer vacation was spent in northern Minnesota on a large quiet lake where Dad could fish every day. Of course, earlier than I can remember we three kids had fishing poles in our hands. But we had to learn the “rules.” That is, how to handle a hook, how to add bait to the hook, when to cast and when to troll, how to fillet a fish, and on and on. But, the one significant part of the fishing journey was learning patience. Dad would sit with each of us individually and show us the careful process of getting ready for our fishing journey, particularly when we were going on the lake. Safety came first. Safety on the dock…safety in the boat… safety when carrying a rod with a hook attached, etc. Dad was always there to remind us that being prepared and safe was paramount. Once we got in the boat and started fishing, we waited and waited for the fish to bite. Dad would tell us that good things were worth waiting for and sometimes we never caught a thing but the fun was in the trying. When we finally caught a fish (or a turtle or a stick), it was a big deal.
Dad, thank you for teaching us…
that when you doing something, do it right
do what you love
good things are worth waiting for
safety first
It’s not about the fish…it’s about the fishing….
Happy Father’s Day to all of you dads and may you pass on your passions to your family!

MEMORIAL DAY FLAG SOCKS

thFoot Traffic Mens Socks

 

Memorial Day weekend is just around the corner! Families and friends get together to enjoy the long weekend and celebrate with picnics, BBQ’s and neighborhood get-togethers. Although we celebrate, it is a time to reflect on this important federal holiday. Formally known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died during the war. The intent of this holiday was to decorate with flowers the graves of the soldiers killed in service to their country. Through the years and particularly after WW2, the holiday grew to honor all Americans who have died while in military service. The day of remembrance was previously May 30 but in 1968, Congress passed Uniform Monday Holiday Act that moved four holidays to Mondays to create a more convenient 3-day weekend. Memorial Day was one of the four holidays. It is now celebrated on the last Monday of May and typically marks the beginning of summer.
During Memorial Day weekend, flags are displayed around the country in remembrance of the holiday. On Monday, the official United States flag is raised to the top of the staff and respectfully lowered to a half-staff position where it remains until noon to remember the one million men and women who have given their lives in service of the country. At noon the flag is raised to the top of the staff to remind us that our military is rising to the call to continue the fight for liberty and justice.
Donning the upcoming holiday weekend in red, white, and blue is fitting and a pair of flag socks adds the perfect finishing touch. At FOOT TRAFFIC, we have both men’s American flag socks and women’s American flag socks, so order several pairs for family and friends and show your patriotism!

GRADUATION- BEST FOOT FORWARD

It’s graduation time, a celebration when thousands of high school and college students  proudly walk across the stage and accept their hard-earned diploma. It is an emotional time for both the parents and the student as it signifies an important educational milestone. Graduation is the acknowledgement of the finale of a major phase of life while setting  the stage for the beginning of another. What’s next?
To honor the unity of a collective class, everyone wears the same cap and gown and every student individually parades across the stage in alphabetical order to have their brief shining moment as their name is read aloud.  Without doing cartwheels and dancing across the stage, how do you set yourself apart from the rest of your class?

 Wear fun socks!
The best way to distinguish yourself from the other graduates without embarrassing yourself or your family is to showcase your feet! Your classmates may not remember your name in 20 years but they will remember that you were the one that wore crazy socks to graduation! Whether it’s sock monkeys, bananas, or genius socks, you will not be forgotten. Your legwear legacy will live on. Whether you are a guy or a gal, novelty socks will certainly “set the stage” for your graduation day.  With over 100 designs of men’s and women’s novelty socks to choose from at FOOT TRAFFIC, you will certainly find a pair that showcases your unique personality.

MOTHER’S DAY WARM FUZZIES

fuzzysqsquaresmiling mom
It’s the little things that count...
Moms appreciate anything their kids give them on this very important day, Mother’s Day. I have saved all of the hand made cards they have made for me.  And, on my jewelry hanger, I have a few necklaces made with pasta and beads on a plastic cord. They have been hanging there proudly for several years with my turquoise and silver jewelry, reminding me how much my kids mean to me.
This Mother’s Day, whatever you give your mom, she will love it because it came from YOU! It doesn’t have to be something big or amazing. It just has to be from you with love. Candy and flowers are always a favorite. (I prefer dark chocolate and perennials, for your information…) However, there are many other fun ideas to give your mother.
This Mother’s Day give her a big hug AND a big hug for her feet. Our microfiber fuzzy socks are so snuggly and comfortable, she will remember you every time she puts them on and thank you for the warm fuzzies. With a choice of 20 colors of solids and stripes, you are sure to pick a winner for your mom.
Pair the socks with a gift certificate for a pedicure and she will love you even more…. if that is even possible!

MOTHER’S Day FUN Day

Mothers deserve to be pampered every day. However,  since we only recognize MOTHER’S DAY, this year May 9,  as the official day to honor our moms,  let her know how much you love and appreciate her.

Mom’s love shows when you bring a smile to her face and give her something that shows you know her and appreciate all of her fun hobbies, interests or personality traits. No matter how old you and your mother are, they always enjoy getting a fun gift on Mother’s Day.

Does she love music?
How about our music notes novelty socks and tickets to a concert…
