Greeny, Meeny, Miney, Moe, Catch a Green Sock By its Toe!

Is there anything more fun than the start of spring? Sun shining, birds chirping, feet freeing from snow boots and socks. At Socksmith, we just love everything about the springtime, especially the color palette. After a long, gray, dreary winter, bright hues and wild patterns just make us want to smile and dance!

There’s no color more springy than green, and we’ve got a sock drawer full of options to help you embrace this symbolic color. It’s the color of fresh cut grass, trees coming back to life, and the leaves on the blooming flowers that we just can’t help but stop and admire.

Be On-trend with Green Socks, the Color of the Year

In spring 2017, green is more present than ever! That’s because it’s been named this year’s Pantone Color of the Year. Since 2000, Pantone Color Institute has been declaring a Color of the Year to inject some creative color stories into our lives with fashion and much more. Celebrate this year’s color choice and add some green socks to your stash, stat!

Pantone’s executive director Leatrice Eiseman told the NY Times about the choice to go green. ‘Forest bathing,’ he said, is a Japanese concept that tells the stressed to take a walk in the woods to find some calm. Maybe your workday or city life doesn’t make a walk in the woods super feasible. Have no fear, Socksmith is here. Pick a pair of green socks (maybe ones with grasshoppers or chrysanthemums?) to wear to work for the next best thing. How much more connected to nature can you get than wearing it on your feet?

Revitalize Your Wardrobe with Green Socks

It’s such a refreshing color, it’s no surprise that green makes you think of refreshing and renewing things like green juice or green tea. Green leaves signal spring’s return and everything it brings. This year, make like a tree and get your green socks on! With toucan socks or wolf socks to help you connect with nature, or Route 66 socks to help you plan your windows-down road trip, there’s a pair to wear everywhere.

Pull on cherry blossom socks to match the blooms  of spring. Or how about cash socks to inspire you to kick your career up a notch this year? And if you’re working on getting back in shape this spring, slip on our yoga people socks to keep you on track. Skipping out on the extra slice of pizza? Don’t worry - pizza socks will help satisfy your craving!

Green socks - grab a pair before they’re all gone!
