commodore 64 socks

Remember the good ‘ole days of the Commodore 64? If you weren’t around in the 1980s to appreciate the 8-bit home computer, you’ve at least probably heard of it. These socks by Sock Union feature the same colors as the Commodore 64 logo, and they’re a great tribute to the past. You get everything pictured in the photo above when you place your order; the mailing includes a pair of socks, a Sock Union sticker, a friendship bracelet, buttons,and more!

thigh high sock store

If this new store in the geek district of Akihabara, Tokyo has its way, there will be a lot more ladies in longer socks this spring and summer. We already know they’re popular, but will there be enough legs in search of just the right thigh high to keep this store in business?

The store is called Zettai Ryoiki, and they claim to be the first store on the planet devoted entirely to thigh-high socks. At the opening on February 8th (the unofficial Knee-High Day), Zettai Ryoiki plans to have more than a hundred different kinds of socks for around 300 yen ($3 USD) per leg. For that price, I can definitely see the value in picking up a few pairs.

muggle stockings

Here’s one for Harry Potter fans that favor short skirts and over-the-knee socks. I can’t find a size on these Harry Potter Muggle Black Over-The-Knee Socks from Hot Topic, but I’m guessing they’re a one size fits most sort of deal. Maybe they magically change size to fit. Then again, us Muggles wouldn’t know anything about that.

These Star Trek crew socks feature the image of Spock on a blue background. The best part is that his pointy Vulcan ears actually stick out from either side of the socks. There’s no way you’ll be able to hide those with a hat on an away mission.

No one really knows what the crew of the USS Enterprise wore for socks so these are as good a choice as any. This three-pack features one for each uniform color in blue, red, and gold along with the Starfleet logo and is available in both men’s and women’s sizes. I wonder if Wesley’s socks had rainbows?

D20 Knee high socks

It’s time to roll for anti-bruising powers for your legs!

I’m not saying these D20 knee high socks will keep your shins safe and sound, but I’m not saying they won’t either. This exclusive design from ThinkGeek is printed on red and gray, and the colors are complementary enough you can mix and match them. They’ll be soft and comfy since they’re a cotton, nylon, and spandex blend. Wear them to game, to grocery shop, and to everywhere ever – D20s improve every outfit.
