OCTOBER PRIZE: WOULD YOU WEAR THESE WATERMELON SOCKS?

October 1st, 2014 by The Watermelon Guy

picI’ve given away socks as a prize here on the blog in the past, but they were very pink, very low and very much a prize for women. This month’s prize is also socks (that’s them on the right), but they’re more gender-neutral, which makes them a great gift for men and women alike!

I used to wear colorful socks, but nowadays I’m more of a plain old brown and black socks kind of guy. I’ve even been known to wear socks with a hole in the toe while wearing flip flops for quick trips to the grocery store to pick up some bread and milk. Was it a major fashion faux pas and a little embarrassing? You bet. But was it convenient? Definitely.

After discovering these socks, however, I’m seriously considering an overhaul of my sock drawer. After all, they say adding a color to your footwear is one of the easiest ways to inject some style and personality into your wardrobe, and my subdued closet could certainly use a little personality.

These watermelon socks ($11 on Amazon) are made by Ashi Dashi Sock Co., a company known for its outrageous designs when it comes to foot accessories. They also make socks that look like corn, socks that look like bacon, and socks that look like hot dogs. Some of those designs might be a little too “out there” for my conservative tastes, but these watermelon socks are the perfect balance of crazy and sensible.

If you’re the same way (or you know someone who is), leave a comment on this entry or any entry this month, and I’ll choose one comment at random to win these socks. At the very least, you can wear them around the house this winter to keep your toes warm!
