FUN.FASHION.FIT.

Right under our FOOT TRAFFIC logo are the words FUN. FASHION. FIT.

We take our tagline seriously and use these simple words to guide our product development process.

At Foot Traffic, we take FUN seriously.  We love legwear and have a lot of fun working with our designers to create fun legwear and socks so you can have fun too.  Our novelty socks and knee highs allow men and women to express their personal style with over 200 designs to choose from.

We take FASHION seriously too. We like to make sure that we have the most up to date legwear solutions at a great value so you can make a fashion statement just by changing your legwear, such as tights, footless tights, socks, OTK’s, and knee highs.  We attend fashion shows, devour fashion magazines, and listen to you so we can develop the latest colors and textures.

DIYers – We have socks for you!

SockMonkey

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.

MARDI GRAS COLORS from head to…toe socks!

Every year I can’t wait for Mardi Gras. Unfortunately, I don’t head to Louisiana where this fun holiday began, but I do celebrate the event by dressing in the colors of Mardi Gras, wearing a few beads and cooking up some incredible jambalaya. Of course, my festive outfit begins with purple, gold and green toe socks! What could be more fun?!

New Year’s Eve: Keeping it Simple

Kissing by the Fireplace...in socks

“What are you doing for New Year’s Eve?”

There is an expectation that we should go out, get festive, and ring in the New Year with fireworks, dancing and partying. I admit I have enjoyed this monumental event of kissing at midnight, confetti, champagne, and celebrating long into the next day. But these last few years, by the time New Year’s Eve rolls around, I do not want to plan another thing, eat more food or drink more wine. I have come to enjoy the quiet that follows the rush of Christmas and I guess I would rather just merge into next year rather that do a “party plunge.” I am grateful for good health, a wonderful family, and great friends and prefer to just relax and reflect on the past year.

Slip into something comfortable this winter- SLIPPER SOCKS

Foot Traffic Slipper Socks

No wonder slipper socks are one of our top holiday gift items!

They are all about comfort, and pretty darn cute as well.  When I come home from work and rip off my shoes or boots, I look for the most comfortable socks I can find to slip into. I don’t like heavy slippers and have found total comfort in my new slipper socks. Having hardwood floors, I appreciate the no-skid pads on the bottom of the feet–totally comfy and totally practical.  Only $8 a pair, all of my girlfriends are getting these adorable socks as a gift this year. The only decision I have to make is who gets what pair…and what pair do I keep for myself?

We all know guys can sometimes be difficult to buy for.  Even they admit it.  If it’s not technology, a new car, or tickets to a big game, then the list gets short quickly.  So here are a few stocking stuffer ideas to give with the socks if you want to take it another step:

Poker socks and poker chips

Beer socks and his favorite brew

High top sneaker socks and a basketball

Music socks and his favorite music CD

Flame socks and some hot, spicy BBQ sauce

Chili peppers socks and some chips and salsa

Golf socks and some favorite golf balls

And the stockings were hung by the chimney with flair….

The first decorations I bring out for the holidays are the stockings where I promptly hang them on the fireplace, door, staircase or bedpost, signifying the official beginning of the season.

DIY Christmas Stockings

I am a passionate DIYer and made my stockings for my family several years ago but I am always interested in adding a new one to the collection as we add new family members, including new pets. Whatever your tradition, whether you are buying new stockings this year for the first time or adding to your existing assortment, you can certainly make your own with little or no cost.

DIY Christmas StockingsI admit that I start by going to the Queen of the holidays, Martha Stewart for new ideas.  Not to disappoint, in her 2011 holiday issue I found this great photo of simple but interesting stockings that could easily be made and embellished or left simple uniquely different, one stocking to the next.  She shares her patterns on her website, www.marthastewart.com/stocking -template, with suggestion of where to find fabrics.  Although these are great resources, my favorite places to hunt for holiday fabrics is at local thrift stores (if not my own closet!)  For a fraction of the cost, you can use old sweaters, jackets, skirts and shirts, taking them apart and making them into great holiday stockings and gifts. She also featured some great stocking ideas in a previous issue at http://www.marthastewart.com/274856/christmas-stocking-ideas

The fun of the holidays is making your home about YOU!  Have fun and enjoy making your stockings this holiday season.

 

Have even more fun filling them!

You may be in winter denial (yes, it is coming) and not ready to put away your shorts and short skirts but you will need to cover up on those cool crisp days of fall.  We love our new 4 button legwarmers because they are comfy and can be worn four different ways…
