Here at Oddzeez, we’re passionate about one type of sock – a strategically mismatched pair of odd socks, obviously. However, we understand that not everyone has been converted to an Oddzee yet and we’re really interested in the (completely true and non-fabricated) psychology of the sock.
Have you ever wondered what your sock preference says about you? Have you ever wondered what personality traits are subconsciously leading you to make your sock choice day in and day out?
We are firm believers that socks are a way of life so we have broken it down for you.
What do you socks say about you?
The black sock wearer..
Versatile, forgiving and an old favourite; black socks can be worn time and time again as should anyone see them, they would be none the wiser. This is what makes black sock wearers come back time and time again. Much like the socks themselves, the wearer will typically be a no fuss type of guy who likes the simpler things in life. He likes to minimise decisions in the morning and prefers to limit his washing to once a fortnight which makes black socks the perfect pair. They can be re worn without raising an alarm to anyone but the sock wearer’s unfortunately loyal partner. No one ever sets out to be a black sock wearer or really knows where the abundance in the drawer came from. Much like paper towel or a pack of gum, black socks are just something you throw in the trolley as you walk past because you can’t really remember if you have enough already.
The ankle socks wearer..
Ankle socks are the summer go-to for the causal guy who still has an eye for detail. Ankle socks indicate a casual sneaker wearer and an outdoorsy type of guy. Why else do you need short socks for other than to pair with shorts on a midday outing or a casual trip to the shops? This guy probably is quite social, likes to keep things looking neat and tidy (otherwise why wouldn’t he be wearing thongs?) and is feeling somewhat oppressed by the sock wearing social norms.
The colourful sock wearer..
Those who wear colourful prints are daring, fun and have a bit of an edge. Furthermore, those who dare wear their odd socks to work are confident and not afraid to break the status quo. It is likely that wearers of colourful socks are happier and are set to have a more successful day than those who opt for the ‘found these in the back of the drawer’ black sock wearers. We’re in support of anything that makes one’s day more positive and this is why we love Oddzeez!
The odd sock wearer..
AKA our type of guy. The odd sock wearer has no time for washing machine blunders, the sock stealing monster and has 100 other things he’d rather be doing than trying to find a matching mate come wear time. The odd sock wearer is adventurous, bold and has his mind set on all those things that he knows are a better use of time than searching for a socks’ mate in the morning.
The odd-length sock wearer..
There is special place reserved in hell for those nutters who wear one sock of each length. I mean good on you for daring to risk people seeing the difference in length in your trouser gap but don’t you feel – uneven?And not uneven in pattern (like the odd pattern wearer) but in weight? Don’t you feel the weight of the world on that bigger sock? Do you feel one ankle is colder? This is where we draw the line of odd. If you are into wearing odd socks – make them Oddzeez. And if you can’t? At least find socks of the same length.
The no sock wearer..
The only thing worse than wearing two mismatched length socks is wearing no socks. Not only does this mean your sweaty feet are sitting in their own pool of perspiration – it’s uncomfortable. Please, if this is you, go and snap up a new pair of socks – we beg of you!
In fact, we are so passionate about this that if you let us know you are in fact, a no sock wearer, we’ll send you a discount code.
So tell us, which type of sock are you?
