When do men ever get to dress “sassy”?
It used to be a man could have fun with ties in order to make a fashion statement or create conversation at the water cooler. Even boxer shorts can be sassy but what fun is that if no one sees them?! Today in offices and businesses, men are allowed to shed the suit and tie for more casual attire so the tie is no longer the only way to change out a fashion style. So what now?
Whether you wear a suit and tie or not, you still need to wear socks.
Never before have we seen so many men having fun with their socks. As a man crosses his legs, there they are!—a fun slice of color and design, sharing a “slice of crazy” between their pant cuff and their shoes. With so many choices in men’s socks, men can now rival women for fun fashion accessories. The good news is that novelty socks are a fun way to add color, attitude, and function for a small price. Most socks today are under $10 so compare that to the price of a tie or pocket square!
You can afford several pairs of fun socks for the same price as one fun tie.

There are three types of men’s socks.

Tailored socks in dark neutral colors– These are usually solid but can have small patterns and are generally for the more conservative, serious type of guy.
Fashion socks in bright colors and patterns– These socks can be described as geometric patterns such as dots, stripes, and graphic designs. Colors can range from conservative to bold brights, and are worn by the more daring fashion guys who like making a fashion statement. Age doesn’t matter as men of all ages enjoy showing their fun side in bold graphic socks.
Crazy theme socks-The sky is the limit with themed socks and there is every theme imaginable available from bears and fish to hot dogs and footballs to the American flag. Men can make a fun statement whether it is a special interest or they are just starting a fun conversation.

So go ahead GUYS, show your sassy side and go crazy with your socks! You are not alone. It looks like the socks craze is here to stay!

Nordic inspiration…

While researching Nordic designs and patterns for tights, leggings and socks, I recently discovered the beautiful craftsmanship and colorful creations by the knitters of Muhu Island. The beautiful gloves and socks designed in intricately knitted patterns and colors have rendered me speechless. I am a color junkie and these textures and bright color combinations are awe- inspiring.

The island of Muhu is just off the coast of Estonia in the Baltic Sea and is home to quaint fishing villages, thatched cottages, overgrown junipers, windmills and a colorful, rich knitting tradition dating back hundreds of years. Arts and crafts have continued to be an important part of the culture of the island and women and girls continue to knit, crochet and embellish unbelievably fine- patterned clothing such as gloves, socks, leggings, and mittens. The island inhabitants cherish their rich culture and the beautiful traditional clothing. Their handwork showcases the significance of the rich history and traditions of their culture and their strong desire to create beautiful textiles for fashion and home. Because there was no external commercial market for such textiles, the women competed among themselves to create unique and distinctive pieces often to catch the eye of a prospective husband.
Today, the women continue the tradition of brightly colored items that are truly inspirational to those fond of Nordic designs and patterns. The examples speak for themselves. I am almost certain that I will never get to Muhu Island but I will continue to keep a healthy collection of photos and images of the beautiful crafts of the this unique island to continue to inspire me!

cotton tights and leggings
It’s starting to get cold outside as we say goodbye to summer and welcome in the cool evenings of fall. We start digging in our drawers to find our socks, leggings, tights, etc. to find something to keep our legs warm (without sacrificing our fashion sensibilities, of course!). What a great time to talk about Signature combed cotton tights, and leggings.
Foot Traffic cotton tights and leggings are made of 60 % combed cotton, the finest cotton available. They are like wearing your underwear all the way to your feet. You wore cotton as a baby and there’s a reason for that. It’s a naturally soft, durable fiber. Cotton is a fiber that blends beautifully with other fibers, such as nylon and spandex, to ensure a consistent fit.
Using our very secret weaving technique (hint: high needle count and proprietary weaving process) we added nylon and spandex for maximum stretch and flexibility giving each pair the ability to retain its original shape after every wearing and every washing. AND, the crotch stays up. AND they don’t stretch out. AND they don’t shrink! That’s why they fit every time you put them on.
Our waistband is a 1” feathered underwear elastic waistband so it won’t roll over or down. Once they are on, no yanking or pulling up. That’s why you forget you have them on.
Our proprietary construction process eliminates the need for a seat panel. Instead we have a single, flat reinforced seam in the seat so no unsightly lines under your pants or skirts.
Cotton is durable. Think about items like denim, diapers, sheets and shirts. They are made of cotton because the fiber is one of the most durable fibers available. Our cotton tights don’t easily run and don’t wear out so plan on wearing them over and over.
We love our cotton tights and leggings so much we offer them in 14 fashion colors. You will want several colors to mix and match with your favorite outfits.
That’s why we are confident that Foot Traffic cotton tights and leggings will be in your drawer next time you are digging for your favorite legwear!
We are so confident that you will love them, we are offering a Confidence in Cotton  guarantee with our SIGNATURE combed cotton tights and leggings as well as our PREMIUM combed cotton leggings.  Follow this link  for the details!

faux leather sleevesfaux leggings 2Leather vs. Faux Leather
Through the years I have worn several pairs of leather pants. I love the feel of leather and the way it looks when worn with a big sweater or long tunic. However, last year my leather pants hung in the closet and I never seemed to reach for them. Instead, I always opted for my jeans or black leggings. Frankly, they were just more comfortable.
This year, faux leather is making fashion headlines and I am excited about the fun look that faux leather offers in tops, pants and legwear. I love it! It has the same appeal as leather but far more comfortable—and more affordable!
Faux leather has the benefit of being thinner in weight and has the added favorite fiber- spandex to offer ultimate stretch and comfort. I look forward to retiring my leather pants to the “Hall of Fashion Fame” and replacing them with a pair of our new black faux leather leggings or perhaps one of the new colors, red, dark grey, blue, or bronze.

fox in socks cropped


We are just a little bit crazy about our latest fox socks. We have added two new fox designs to our line and are excited to share them with you. Our first pair is Fox in Socks. How cute is that? We can’t say that we have actually seen fox running around in socks, but we think they should.

The cute fox face on the front and the adorable fox tail on the back is sure to cause the dogs to start chasing you but don’t worry…the non-skid grippers on the bottom will let you turn corners without skidding during your get-away!
Fox socks are a must for fall!

In Praise of Tights/Leggings Under Shorts!

shorts and tights shorts and tighs

It’s back to school month! And in the midst of all the catalog specials and TV commercials of middle school girls jumping around in their new flowered t-shirts and jean jackets, I’d just like to take a moment and give a quick shoutout to leggings and tights for being the perfect summer to fall transition garment.

September in Boston (where I’m unbelievably a senior in college this year) means the weather is constantly fluctuating between sunny and warm, sunny and cold, cloudy and warm, cloudy and cold, and raining. The astute reader will recognize that those are pretty much ALL of the weather options that exist. That’s true. And they happen at unpredictable intervals, sometimes over the course of a single day (thanks for nothing Weather App). But, I no longer have any cause to fear or debate what to wear on any given day – because I have recently discovered magical versatility of wearing leggings or tights with shorts.

Those of you already on board know exactly what I’m talking about – but for you skeptics out there, here are 3 reasons why leg wear under leg wear is the way to brave the unpredictable this fall.

1) The combo is AC and Heat Friendly: Wearing full pants to walk between classes is exhausting and turns every dismissal bell into a potential heat exhaustion alarm. But the decision to wear just shorts means that once in the air conditioned classroom, your legs will be colder than any setting of a Jack London novel. But slap on a pair of tights underneath your shorts and the light fabric does just enough to keep the cold of the library away without trapping in the heat of the day.
2) It adds style to monochromatic summer outfits! One disadvantage to wearing less clothing in the summer is that it offers less of a chance for fun, stylistic choices beyond wearing a cute tank top or maybe a particularly floral skirt. Dress up the most boring white tank and jean shorts combo with some wild pink or patterned leggings to keep the cool in …well… cool.
3) It increases footwear options! Wearing combat boots and shorts is kinda weird… but wearing them with leggings? But you could also wear flip-flops! Or wedges! The options are endless.

If that’s not enough to convince you – you’re silly. But it’ll be pants season soon enough, and I’ll be back to extol the virtues of wearing leggings under PANTS. (It gets pretty cold in Boston)



look book cover

Once school starts, it is fall. No waiting until Sept. 22 to embrace the season. That’s why we post the LOOK BOOK  before fall is officially here. This season we shot our photos in the woods because we love nature and the wonderful feeling we get when we are outside enjoying all of the fun activities that fall has to offer. Whether it is camping out, tailgating, hiking, skateboarding or just enjoying the fresh air on a beautiful fall day, you should be comfortable and confident in whatever you are wearing so you can enjoy every moment.
At Foot Traffic, we love to layer. With a chill in the air and the opportunity to be outdoors, we layer our socks and boot socks over tights and leggings. There are so many fun options; our LOOK BOOK is just a sampling of ideas for you to create your own look that makes you feel good.
We have to give a shout out to the models—Shelby, Haley, Johnnie, and Chad— and our patient and talented photographer, Gary Rohman, who all worked tirelessly all day to bring us these incredible photos. Thanks also to Judy at E.J’s Boutique for lending us some of the beautiful sweaters worn at the shoot.
We hope you enjoy the 2104 FALL LOOK BOOK and use it as a source of “autumn inspiration” to put together creative looks for your fall activities!
