Keep your feet flying and comfy with new Firefly socks from ThinkGeek. The acrylic, nylon, and spandex combo socks come in two different designs: one features Jayne Cobb’s cunning orange and yellow hat with the phrase “Stay Shiny” and the other design is white and blue with the Blue Sun logo. You never know when you’re going to get stuck on a cold and drafty spaceship so go ahead and buy both designs to be on the safe side.

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.
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.

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?
These Mighty Morphin Power Rangers socks are just the thing for those cold fall days that are just around the corner. You have your choice of the Blue Ranger or Pink Ranger in a machine-washable acrylic/polyester/spandex blended sock.
