When Meg was younger she use to wear wonderful brightly coloured stripey toe-socks. I loved them, not just the colours but the way she could wiggle her toes but I resigned myself to the fact that no sock maker in their right mind would sell a line of toe-socks for grown men. I was wrong 🙂 Muji sell two gent’s toe-socks: black and off-white. I’m stocking up. For all you other toe-sock wearers out there I wanted to pass on a hint about how to put them on.
When they come out of the washing machine inside-out, first put them on your hand, then poke in each toe with the other hand, and then grab the toes inside the sock before pulling it back the right way out.
James over on the flickr group Just Toe Socks suggested I add links into Muji’s catalogue to make this post even more useful (actually he said “more useful” I couldn’t resist adding “even”). Here’s the black ones I got: http://www.muji.eu/pages/online.asp?V=1&Sec=6&Sub=31&PID=1720&CHK=Y and here are some grey ones that James found http://www.muji.eu/pages/online.asp?V=1&Sec=6&Sub=31&PID=2114&CHK=Y Sadly I cannot find the off-white ones.
