Stuff I see, which you might not.

Friday Foto – Camino style

on July 19, 2013

And the countdown to the Camino is well and truly underway – just around one month to go now! I have most of my gear sorted (backpack, sleeping bag, hilarious walking poles etc), which is great. But I am still experimenting with socks and haven’t yet found the right fit – comfy, not scratchy, not too hot for the Spanish summer, nice colour and all that. And every book or forum post that I read stresses that socks are VERY IMPORTANT. They are also VERY EXPENSIVE at around $30 a pair, but that’s another story.

Today, I am trying something new. I really bought these just because they look funny and made me laugh. And they have a cool name.

Not gloves, but socks.

Not gloves, but socks.

Once I took the time to arrange them on my feet (much trickier than putting on normal socks, I tell you), they actually feel pretty comfy. Weird, but comfy. Like my toes are all arranged in a neat order in their self-contained little sockettes.

I am not sure if they make my feet look weird or if it's just that I've never really taken a photo of my feet before...

NB, the sock toes are square-shaped – my actual toes are not. Nor are my toes puffy, as they appear here. These socks do not help me put my best foot forward, I tell you. 

So, there you go. Some weird looking alien sock feet for your Friday. Now I have to go and try them out. Hope that you have a great weekend!

    Hum – they look a bit like corpse feet – perhaps you could bring out your own line of nicely manicured, flesh coloured ones?

    They do however look like socks that were made for walking…….

      They are definitely not fetching, Esock, it’s true. I do like your idea of pretty socks, especially if they’re hiding feet that are actually tired, sore and a bit blistery! (And nice work again with your name today!) 🙂

  2. Yeah, yeah… are you SURE you don’t really have puffy, square-shaped toes…?

  3. You need to paint the toe nails though!!…. more importantly do they fit in your pink runners!:-)

Enough about me, what do YOU think?
