Boots + Socks: What You Need to Know
Knee-highs, tights, and leg warmers are perfect for your winter outfits! With fall weather fast approaching, it's time to pull out the boots, dust them off, polish them up, and get them ready for another season of cuteness. While boots have gained in popularity and now enjoy year-round adventures with a lot of people, many fashionistas prefer to bare their tootsies in warmer weather and save the boots for colder months. That would be now. Of course, with every pair of boots out on the streets, there's a good pair of socks playing a supporting role inside. At Foot Traffic, we think it's time to elevate the humble sock to a more visible status. And we have knee-high socks, leg warmers, novelty tights, and other fun socks that look great with just about any style of boot. That's saying a lot. There are some mighty cool boots out there these days! Boots + Socks = A Perfect Duo Most people wear socks with boots because boots just feel funny without socks. But there's a lot more to this sock-wearing habit than mere comfort. A good pair of socks keeps feet from getting blisters and hot spots -- especially important with that new pair of boots you just purchased and haven't completely broken in yet! A good pair of high-quality socks also helps keep your feet cool and dry by wicking away moisture (aka sweat). Less sweat means less chance of stinky feet -- a big plus! Choose the Sock for the Boot There are many boot styles in fashion these days -- tall boots, short boots, booties, backless boots, thigh-high boots, and even cut-out boots. Boots usually carry the day as the primary focal point of an outfit. But the right pair of socks can easily outshine the boots. And that's where Foot Traffic comes in. We have so many fun socks in stunning colors, designs, and styles that you'll hardly know where to start with your order. But we have faith in you. You can do this! Socks come in different lengths, so let's start there. Check out these suggestions. Knee-high socks: You'll rock calf-length boots with a cute pair of knee-high socks. Pull them all the way up or scrunch them down to meet the top of the boot. They're versatile in this regard. Knee-high socks express your personality. There's more real estate there, so to speak, so you can make more of a statement. Check out our Cat Stripe , Skeleton , or Piano knee-highs to see what we're talking about. You could even wear a cute pair of toe socks ! If you don't feel like putting that much out there, we also have socks for the more subdued. You might prefer a simple pair of fleece-lined knee-highs that are soft, comfy, and keep your feet warm while killing it with your boots. Crew socks: Are ankle boots your choice for the day? You can go with shorter crew socks and still express your personality just fine. Crew socks go with about anything and dress up every outfit, whether you're wearing jeans, a skirt, capris, or shorts. And yes, your boots also go with all those outfits and so much more! Foot Traffic has tons of themed socks that will steal any show. Choose the socks you're wearing that day based on how much of them will show with your outfit. Or what kind of mood you're in. Or maybe your day's destination. What we're saying here is that we have crew socks for everyone and every occasion. Take a look at these if you don't believe us: Chaos Coordinator , Dentist , and Pumpkin Everything . Take Style a Step Further For boot lovers who want to go a step further, why not wear them with tights? A pair of printed tights or tights with patterns take your outfit to a whole new level. Tights create a hip new look when they're worn with skirts or shorts and your favorite pair of boots. Check out these fun women's tights for inspiration for your next outfit! If you like the look of tights, but don't like wearing boots without socks, then a pair of footless tights combined with socks might be more to your liking. This way, you get the best of both worlds. Layer them up, and step out in style! And speaking of layering...don't forget to stock up on leg warmers this winter! Long leg warmers over jeans, jeggings, or tights keep you toasty during the cold months. And there's nothing cooler than staying warm in style. This fashion accessory looks great with any pair of boots. Foot Traffic carries both shorter and thigh-high leg warmers that are soft, beautiful, and stay in place. No saggy-baggy to ruin the look here! Our long leg warmers are the perfect choice, no matter what style of boot you're rocking. They come in lots of colors, and at 39" long, there's plenty to give a boost to even the shortest booties. Go Out and Rock Your Look! If you're ready to haul out the boots, don't forget to make your socks feel loved too. Have fun creating your unique look with knee-high socks, printed tights, thigh-high leg warmers, or any of our other fun socks from Foot Traffic. You'll find the whole kit and caboodle on our website . And when your friends ask where you got your socks (and they will ask), tell them you got them at Foot Traffic!
