Rivaling America’s favorite fast food, hamburgers and hot dogs, tacos are an everyday go-to snack or meal for most Americans. From food carts to gourmet restaurants, tacos are a common item on most menus, ingredients varying only by the creativity of the chef, geographic location or individual requests. The first people known to make tacos were ancient Aztecs. The taco evolved and the taco as we know it today immigrated to the United States from Mexico. The name “taco” came from the Spanish which means “light snack”. Mexican women served tacos as a practical way to serve her family food, filling a simple corn or flour tortilla with meat.
When in Mexico, if you are looking for a taco for lunch, you might not be so lucky. Tacos are usually served as a morning breakfast or a nighttime snack, unavailable between the hours of noon and 6:00p.m. In the United States, tacos are consumed around the clock and have popularized by hundreds of fast food taco chains and street vendors. We do love our tacos!
In order to honor this favorite food, we are thrilled to offer our latest men’s taco socks and women’s taco socks. Share the love wearing a pair of Foot Traffic taco socks.
You will be craving tacos all day!

I am sure everyone has cleared their calendars for the latest SHARKNADO 3: OH HELL NO! at 8:00 on the SYFY channel, tomorrow evening, Wednesday, July 22.

If it is anything like the first two SHARKNADO movies, it will be ridiculous and full of shark blood, questionable acting, and mediocre special effects. However, I wouldn’t miss it and will be wearing my favorite shark socks that I have worn with each of the first two SHARKNADO movies. Our 3-D shark socks are stretchy enough to fit both men and women so don’t hesitate to have several pairs on hand for your viewing party. We also have a shark sock just for men so these can be worn to the office as well as a poolside's sharksharksocksairCLOSE
Of course, to add hype to this highly anticipated movie night, there have been recent shark attacks along the east coast and most recently Mick Fanning, 3-time world surfing champion, was attacked this past weekend during a surfing competition is South Africa. It was all caught on TV and he ended up miraculously without a scratch. I doubt he will be watching SHARKNADO 3.
With so much shark excitement this summer, you will certainly want a pair of shark socks. AND, for all of you shark sock lovers, coming SOON is a new color– blue  shark socks! -available mid- August.

Father’s Day Fish Tale

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 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!

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.

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!
