Hip hose


Unless you’re Don Johnson, you can’t have shoes without socks. At, there are several neatly themed pairs of socks. Specifically, for that cranky man or fan of Picasso’s blue period, choose the Men’s Moods sock — it’s $14 and features three different shades of blue. Better still, for $7.50 you can get a pair of Sister Sun, Brother Moon socks embossed with the sun, the moon and plenty of stars. Is there a better way to follow Casey Kasem’s timeless command to “keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars” than bending over to pull up your starry socks?
