    We keep wasting our time on these conspiratorial underground efforts to kill things like socks and Sears, when we should be focusing on insidious threats to society like the GOP and Johnny Depp movies.

    What did socks ever do to you. I can wear sneakers to work, and I like having cozy feet.

    I bet all of you had serious doubts on or right before your wedding day.

    I know this is going to sound really stupid, but I didn't know who Marie Kondo was when I first saw this thread, but I finally wound up seeing her show and now I am motivated to clean. I also feel like I have too many clothes and even though a few months ago I got rid of some, I still feel like I have a lot that need to be weeded out.

    Another thing I need to clear out is my bookshelf, I have the whole set of Wheel of Time that takes up a whole shelf that I read through, hated it the series, and now it is just taking up a whole shelf of my bookcase.

    Don’t worry I’m on your sock team @fantasynerd . I come home everyday and put socks on if I didn’t wear them to work. #sockblessed

    Are socks not a thing for millennial's? Granted, I am like on the very tail end of being a qualified millennial, and I live in Michigan, but I love me some printed socks.

    I own practically no socks. I have like 2 pair I use for softball and all the other times I wear K's wool socks when I'm cold. I just don't have any shoes that require them other than my sneaks.

    I fought it for years. Then one day I slipped into my ballet flats without putting on hose first. Liberation.

    Sweaty feet in shoes make me shiver.

    I have like zero circulation and am always freezing. These feet don't sweat. :lol:

    I have socks because my toes get cold without them. There was a phase when I was younger where I didn't wear socks because I didn't like how they felt, but now I absolutely have to. Plus socks absorb the sweat an stuff.

    Guys, get shoe liners! They will change your life. I put them in ballet flats, Toms, Sperrys, etc when I want the no-sock look without the sweat. 100% sweat-free even in FL and they’re thin enough not to change the fit of your shoes. I wash them in a mesh bag and air dry and they last forever.

    Lol basically all of my shoes are black booties, including my sneakers which are those wedge sneaker things that were the shit a bunch of years ago. Allll the black booties. Nothing else is required. Just like red lipsticks and purple eyeshadows, they are all different, and they go with everything.
    I hate socks. I have a few pairs of black ankle socks that I wear only when my shoes (ahem, black booties) are on. Shoes off, socks off. I actually have an entire drawer in my dresser full of socks that I literally never open. Mostly I keep them because I get them as gifts sometimes, but they've never been worn. I think I'll give the new cute ones to my mom and throw the rest of them out when I get home tonight, so thank you, thread.

    Have you switched to these from the Aldo ones? Better, worse, same?

    I have over a dozen pairs of wool socks in varying colorful patterns. Almost none of them have been worn out of the house. This is the height of my decadence. You can pry my socks from my cold, dead-feeling feet.

    Okay what the fuck are people in cold weather doing?????? I had no idea socks were so controversial*.

    (*unless you wear them in bed. We all know that's unacceptable.)

    I own a ton of socks and fun patterns are pretty much a must. When it's winter for half the year I don't know how I'd survive without them.

    I don't leave my house in winter except to go to work and back, and I just wear my ankle socks and boots to drive, so. I am not a winter activities kind of person.

    I only wear socks with my sneakers/boots but wear them all the time in the house. So many socks.

    I have those exact liners in my favorite pair of loafers. They're awesome.

    Hiding in my work-from-home bunker, where I wear nothing but slippers. I peek outside about as often as Punxsatawney Phil.
