Designers Gil and Humberto tried to imagine what would happen if socks could talk. “The idea came at a really memorable friend’s gathering many years ago,” they recalled in an interview with Inky Goodness.
“We were entertained by the idea that socks could talk like puppets – but on feet rather than hands – and played around with this idea throughout the party. We thought it would be funny to make sock characters and the next time we met, we agreed to try to make this idea into a real thing. And the rest is history.”
The rest, indeed, was history. Now running their own sock wear brand, named appropriately ChattyFeet, the two sell high-quality socks that look like hilarious hand puppets. “We like silly things that encourage people to play because life gets too serious at times,” they explained.
You can see their silly socks in action on their Instagram page, and purchase your own pair in their online store. Here are some of our favorites in no particular order.
