Blast to the Past with these 5 Retro '80's Themed Socks
Marty McFly has nothing on you... The decade of the 1980s was one of rock 'n' roll, strong females with attitude, home workout video, and rolled-up blue jeans. Thousands of Baby Boomers were either finishing high school or celebrating their new-adult freedom with college classes, first "real" jobs, and parties with friends. If you lived through the 1980s, you might recall this time of your life fondly. It was a pretty fun decade. Here at Foot Traffic, we're all about fun. Our themed socks are designed for all occasions. They celebrate special interests, hobbies, occupations, foods, and culture. Fun socks have the power to express a personality or an attitude. They also brighten nearly everyone's day. All that from a pair of socks! If you're an '80's baby, take a look at these five fun retro socks that will take you back to the past. Then hop over to our website and pick out a pair for yourself. #1. Socks for Drinking Several of the movies that came out in the '80s involved groups of friends -- either teens or young adults -- going through trials or coming of age. Check out The Outsiders, St. Elmo's Fire, The Breakfast Club, or Risky Business if you don't believe us. Much of the bonding in these movies revolved around drinking beer with buddies. Foot Traffic's men's beer stein socks and beer and pretzel socks are the perfect accompaniment to a night of watching reruns of these fantastic movies. Men's or women's tequila socks are also a good fit for an evening of retro movie viewing. If you prefer the sophisticated (aka stuffier) air of Dead Poets Society, our bourbon and cigar socks might be more your style. Pop the movie into the VHS player and enjoy! #2. Socks with Attitude The 1980s also had their share of attitude as Madonna and Cyndi Lauper both burst on the scene with their unique brands of style, music, and stage presence. Foot Traffic has several pairs of funny socks that make great gifts for anyone with a snarky attitude who doesn't mind showing it off. For daring women, we have Dirty Martini socks . For the culinary-minded, check out our My Kitchen socks . Strong, confident women may want to strut their stuff in a pair of I'd Hit That socks . And women who've had it with the world will love our Catitude socks . Of course, those who fancy themselves the next Pat Benatar may want a pair of Rockstar socks . #3. Socks (and Legwear) for Working Out The '80s saw a huge response to home workout videos as actress Jane Fonda rolled out her at-home aerobics workout tapes and Richard Simmons busted onto the scene with his Sweatin' to the Oldies video series. Suddenly women (mostly) across the country were raiding department stores to find the latest leotards, tights, leggings, and matching headbands. Here at Foot Traffic, we don't like to be left out. That's why, in this category, you'll find not just crazy socks but also novelty tights and leg warmers too. Our fun tights for women include colorful patterns and designs that you won't find anywhere else. Printed microfiber tights are comfortable, fun, and durable. They don't sag and bag as others do. And of course, you'll want to wear our beautiful printed tights everywhere, not just to work out. Leg warmers were also popular in the '80s. Here at Foot Traffic, you'll find the best long leg warmers around -- perfect for those chilly days when you need an extra layer to keep warm. Our thigh-high leg warmers are 39 inches long with a sophisticated cable knit pattern that complements any outfit. They look great with Chic jeans and boots! And they come in lots of colors so you can mix it up or match exactly -- whatever your preference! Let's not forget the socks, though. Our women's Cardio socks may be more appropriate when it comes to expressing your views on working out. Of course, if you're truly into sports, we have pages of men's and women's sports socks on our website to celebrate your favorite! #4. Socks for Medical Personnel The 1980s weren't all fun and games. The AIDS pandemic spread throughout the country, and medical personnel and researchers were working hard to learn more about this disease and how to treat it. To recognize those who take care of others, Foot Traffic has several sock designs for doctors and nurses. Check out our Badass Nurse socks for both men and women. Our Doctor socks are perfect for those who want to show off what they do (or those who are fans of M*A*S*H). We also have I Call the Shots socks . Any of these designs would make a great gift for someone in the medical profession. #5. Socks for Everything Else One of the biggest fashion trends in the '80s was rolled-up blue jeans. What better way to show off a brightly colored pair of socks? At Foot Traffic, you'll find fun socks in patterns that make a statement with plain old blue jeans. Roll those pant legs up and show everyone what a Super Teacher you are! Display your love of music with our Dancing Notes socks . Or let everyone know how much you love your dog by showing off our Home Is Where the Dog Is socks . As long as your socks show and you're sporting a pair of loafers or boat shoes with them, you'll be right in style! Socks from Foot Traffic Take You Back Foot Traffic has themed socks and legwear that inspire creativity, help you celebrate your favorite things, and encourage you to display a little personality in any situation. Many of our fun socks, long leg warmers, and tights with patterns can also send you back in time, at least figuratively.
