It’s fair to say that the last couple of weeks have been a little tiring for me, starting a new job, in a new company, in a new exciting role has been wonderful but there’s lots to be done. I’ve met some brilliant people in my first two weeks and I feel so much better for having made the jump. So, on Saturday I decided to treat myself. After a spot of wedding dress scouting with my mum in the morning, I spent the afternoon tucked up in my duvet watching Mad Men with a tub of ice cream and Prof. Brian Sox…
About a week ago, the lovely Gil from the kick-starter funded ChattyFeet sent me a pair of my very own socks to try out (free delivery I may add), an incredibly kind gesture on his behalf. When I saw the packet arrive, in super speedy time, I was so excited! They came in the cutest of packaging, with the ‘No bleaching, I have perfect white teeth!’ advice on the back and ‘Now you’re sockin”- it made me giggle in the same way that an Innocent drinks bottle would. You see, ChattyFeet aren’t your regular, boring sock brand and if, like me, you love to be a bit different, they’re a revelation.
You see, ChattyFeet are staging a rebellion for men and women alike. A rebellion against the mundane, starting with their bold and rather bright socks. Sometimes the transition from childhood into adulthood can be difficult, with the endless work meetings and washing up, but with these socks, you still feel like you have a little bit of your childhood dreams with you. Both me and Green Ranger try and jazz up our wardrobes with a bit of creative flair, for fear of growing up, and these really fit the bill.
Each set of socks have their own character, designed by a group of wonderful illustrators and as soon as you unleash them, it’s a tad hard not to notice them! Even just having my relaxing duvet day, I had a lot of fun just admiring Prof. Brian Sox and even hosted a little ‘Punch and Judy’-esque show just for Green Ranger. Ok, it was with the same character but when I buy my next pair, he’ll have a friend!
What’s more, they’re hoping in the future that we’ll all get to design our own socks! That’s not to say that the designs on offer aren’t already brilliant, my favourites are Commander Awesome, Yoko Mono and Brad Feet and they seem to be adding designs quite regularly at the moment, so keep your eyes peeled on their Instagram or their blog!
I nearly forgot to mention just how comfy and warm they are too, they fit my feet like a glove, which means they’re perfect for work. Yes, I have worn them to work… and they went down a storm! I had people asking me left, right and centre where they had come from and where they could get a pair! Prof. Brian Sox made a big impression, especially when he started lecturing on the full moon that had just past! It’s not just the comfort or the new friends you make either, it’s the fact that these socks are made from quality materials too. I know in the past the loudest socks I could find were in Topshop or Primark but we all know those don’t last all that long before they get a hole or two and these are only £7 a pair!
So, what are you waiting for? Join the rebellion and why you’re at it, send in a video too! They all get featured on the ChattyFeet website, it’s also not a bad place to pick up a bit of inspiration too.
