I just love discovering new sock and stocking sellers. While I understand that competition isn’t always good for retailers, it’s an absolute godsend for consumers, especially as we get closer to the holiday season.
Today, I want to introduce a new player in the legwear market, Style Riot. With the motto of “Invent Your Outline,” Style Riot specializes in accessories of all kinds…from shoes to bags to stockings and socks. Best of all, their items are budget friendly. The Sock it to Me knee high socks, for example, are the cheapest on the web.
Now that it’s getting cold, I can’t get enough of wearing knee high socks. Nothing feels so good as having an extra layer underneath. As much as I love tights (and their cousins, pantyhose), even I get tired of wearing something on my legs all the time, and my female readers know that wearing nylon everyday isn’t the best for one’s intimate health. Knee high socks are a way for me to get my legwear fix, but still be comfortable. Plus, knee high socks work for any season: spring, summer, fall, and winter.
I tried the Avocado Argyle and Soccer Socks. Composed of 75% cotton, 20% Polyester, and 5% Spandex, these socks have the widest size range I’ve heard of, fitting ladies’ shoe sizes 4-11. I’m a size 11 narrow, and I can attest to the comfort and stretchability of these socks. Not only are these knee highs warm and comfortable, they’re sturdy. Neither pair stretched out of shape or wore thin, even after several washings.
At $5.50/pair (once you factor in the exclusive 10% discount for my readers–addict10) they’re also an absolute steal. I honestly don’t think you could find a better buy anywhere. Shipping is super-reasonable as well, at only .50 per item with a 3 item minimum.
In summary, if you’re looking for knee high socks (and really, who isn’t?), I recommend checking out Style Riot. And tell him Treacle sent ‘ya! ;-)
