Winter is coming and that means the cold weather is upon us here in the DC metro area. For those of us that are fortunate enough to experience all four seasons we know all to well the loss of feeling that freezing temperatures bring upon our frozen foot digits. Luckily we have found ways to combat the effects of frostbite during these especially cold days by keeping our feet bundled up inside our favorite pair of socks. However, there is personal preference when it comes to picking a pair of socks, so this holiday season as you sit by the fire trying to warm your toes, consider what your socks may say about you.



Athletic Socks
You are very active in you quest for toe warmth, the excessive body heat created from your constant movement is the only thing keeping your toes from freezing. However all this movement comes with a price … sweaty feet. Good thing your socks are made up of a high density moisture wicking fabric. Keep running before those big holiday meals, I’m sure the people passing you in their cars don’t think you’re completely insane.



Argyle Business Socks
You can’t stop working, you are so focused on your job that you don’t even notice how cold your toes are. They are now suffering from first degree frostbite due to the thin yet stylish textile you choose to cover your feet. It doesn’t look good for those precious little piggies. On the other hand there is a plus side to your workaholic attitude, not only is your sock game on point, but your high paying job has earned you enough cash to fund your fancy sock obsession. As your boss would say … Keep up the good work!



Creepy Toe Socks
Honestly, I’m sure you’re a nice person and all but I just don’t have time to dissect your weird toe sock fetish. Plus side? You can wear thong sandals with these socks …



The Socks Formerly Known as White
Time is a valuable thing. Trivial tasks like separating the lights and darks when washing your clothes are just a waste of what precious little hours are left in the day. All your clothes go in at the same time, one load and you’re done. But now after all that time saving you are left with pink socks. It’s ok, they still provide the same quality of warmth as they did before. Your favorite month? October, because breast cancer awareness month is the only time your socks are deemed appropriate.



Fuzzy Socks complete with Rubber Grip Soles
Traction is your middle name. Linoleum, hard wood or stone flooring, no problem. Nothing is bringing you down. You approach life in much the same way, your outgoing personality and overall demeanor make you a joy to be around. ( Sidenote: My girlfriend wears these socks and is bound to come across this post at some point, so I apologize in advance for the bias towards this pair. )



Christmas Stocking Socks
Is it Christmas yet? No. But it is Christmas month and that is something you can get behind. You can never get enough of Christmas music and you listen to it all year long, even though it heightens the risk of your family disowning you. Merry Christmas!
