Here at Oddzeez we’re not your usual sock clan. We like to keep things interesting and offer our fellow Oddzeez life spice (yeah, that’s a thing we’re claiming) through our selection of purposefully odd socks. When you snag a pair of Oddzeez, you’re not just getting a set of socks – but a lifestyle. Oddzeez odd pairs are designed to be worn together but, if you’re lucky enough to have a subscription or multiple pairs, we won’t hold mixing and matching the range against you. In fact – we encourage it.
We’re so passionate about living the odd life that we’ve compiled a list of 8 ways wearing odd socks will enrich your life. You’re welcome.
Save your wife’s precious time..
If you’re consistently wearing odd socks, your wife won’t be nagging you to find your socks mate come wash time – she simply won’t know who’s mate is whose. After all, your Oddzeez can have a plethora of mates. No need to pay for a marriage counsellor, go straight to the root of the cause and invest in odd socks from the get-go.
Come to think of it, YOU’LL save countless hours too. You will NOT be bound by the big bad patriarchal idea that your socks must match. Therefore, you will happily wear whatever the f*ck sock comes your way instead of wasting time scrounging around for a pair because you are a suit wearing adrenaline junkie who WILL NOT be marginalised by the corporate world..Told you we’re passionate.
You’ll never be caught off guard for a meeting..
Not sure if your new associate is going to be relaxed or uptight? Wondering if your boss is calling you in to announce a pay rise or a disciplinary? Opt for one muted sock and one crazier sock. Then, you can flash your boss different parts of your personality by simply cocking the appropriate leg for the situation. That inch between trouser and shoes can really make or break any man’s career and you best be prepared.
Each socks contains super powers..
This is not yet proven, but we believe each sock contains super powers, therefore mixing them up mixes a special super human blend. Want to dunk like Jordan? Opt for the Half Time Oranges. Want to show Jim at the golf club who’s boss? Opt for A Day on the Green. Want to succeed at golf dunk*? Wear one of each. We won’t go into what happens when you mix ‘n’ match in the sheets..
Get away with murder..
You know how crime shows often find their killer based on really obvious giveaways as opposed to real investigative facts? Oddzeez will help you avoid this. If you commit a crime and happen to leave an odd sock behind, it’s less likely to be traced back to you. They’ll NEVER be able to link your mismatched socks. We recognise this is quite circumstantial and probably unlikely, but any CSI viewers will know this could happen. Please note: Oddzeez does not endorse petty or criminal crime. BUT, should you get away with something using this tactic we’d be interested to hear about it.
Never go home alone..
Much like your boss, you can use your odd socks to impress your date two-fold. You can either flash her the sock that best suits her mood OR, wow her with both to show her just how versatile you are. Go for London Calling for a guaranteed conversation segway between your socks and that really interesting time you travelled abroad and saved the UK from great doom. You’re very worldly and possess a great deal of worldly wisdom that your date needs to know, just so she knows how interesting you are.
Get a second birthday..
Odd sock day is a thing. It’s October 5th and what more reason do you need to get into the odd sock groove? We figure if you push the odd sock mission enough, people will soon associate the movement with you and present you gifts on this day, year after year. Thank us later.
Odd socks are an icebreaker..
In case you haven’t picked up by aforementioned pearls of wisdom, odd socks can be the talking point of any situation if you just lean in and let them. When wearing an exceptional pair of socks, it is not uncommon for company to exclaim “Wow. Great socks” to which a great response would be a unique and engaging tale on how they came into your possession. Example: “These Googeez came into my possession some moons ago. Whilst I was lost riding through the Arabian desert, I came across a local tribe. After several days in blistering heat and scorching terrain, I sought their help to find my way home. The details are too horrifying to reveal, however, know that they got me home safely. It would have been easy to discount this experience for a delusion of my dehydrated state if it were not for my only memento; these socks were gifted to me by the Arabian King himself in order to keep my toes warm for the duration of my journey”. If your company doesn’t bow down and buy you a beer after this – we’ll eat our hats.
Note: Truth is optional when using socks as an icebreaker.
There we have it. Eight cracking (and completely legitimate) reasons odd socks are better than pairs.
