Shoes aren’t really a choice. You have to wear shoes to work, to the store, to a restaurant, to anywhere public really. The kind of shoe you wear however is always a choice.
Some people focus on style, whereas others focus on price and others on comfort. Unfortunately it’s very rare to find an affordable, stylish, and comfortable pair of shoes. It would be so much easier to be able to just walk around in your socks like you do at home. That would be super comfy, right? Well lucky for you there is a company that decided to make it so you can wear shoes that are as comfortable as your socks. They are called sock shoes created by Nike. And they have become very popular.
Basically it’s a shoe that has a knitted upper half that according to the advertising “feels like a sock”. There are even socks that look like shoes. Although I don’t know if I would walk outside with just these on.
In this article I have listed for your convenience some different designs of the shoe socks, the level of attention you’d receive, the message you’re sending, where to find them and the price.
