Socks are the new shoes.
With most of us leaving our runners at the door for most of the day during the Covid-19 lockdown, one Irish company wants to make sure your feet are well dressed… and they’ve now added custom face masks to the range too.
Irish Socksciety make socks with personality, complete with Irish sayings to suit your mood such as ‘Sure Look it’, ‘Grand’ and ‘Feck It’.
Pieces from their €9 new season collection make a brilliant gift and they’re also including a free face mask with every order, which could come in handy if the Government advises the public to wear them after the lockdown, as suggested by Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan this week.
If you’d like a mask upgrade, you can also order their ‘Howya’ face masks (€3) individually here.
“We wanted to help in some way to ease people’s worries so we thought we could help by producing a simple and slightly less scary face mask,” explained Joanna at Irish Socksciety.
“The Howya Face mask might at least bring a smile to people on the street. In areas of high stress, it brings the human element back into focus,”
The socks are online and ready for worldwide shipping here. If you’re always running out, you can also sign up and buy a monthly subscription for yourself or a friend who loves a good sock.
