Sock It To ‘Em
If girls get pretty little socks with ruffle trims and lurex sparkle, then what do boys get? Socks with zombies, swamp creatures, and pirates.
Trend-setting boys are dressing their feet in Instance socks, the California brand that counts pro skateboarders, surfers and musicians as its collaborators and designers. Its Ankle Biters Kids Collection features gory monsters and leg-eating sharks, which will probably be a big hit with the cool girls, too.
Just make sure to buy enough pairs so that there’s always a clean set available. Swamp creatures may look cool, but we don’t want to imagine what they might smell like.
Instance Kids’ Socks, $9.99 a pair or $17.99 for a set of three. At Underworld Skateboard Shop in Vancouver (1043 Granville St., Vancouver) and Montreal (51, rue Sainte-Catherine E, Montréal) and online at www.underworld-shop.com
