Zip-up socks by Leg Avenue

Zip_up_socks

If you follow fashion at all, you’ll probably have noticed that visible zips are appearing on everything at the moment, from skirts and dresses to… socks. These ones are by Leg Avenue, and you can buy them for £16 per pair at ASOS. They describe them as "Biker" socks, and we guess we can see that – they will definitely toughen up whatever you decide to wear with them, but what do you think of them? Do you think zip-up-socks make a refreshing change from the norm, or do you prefer to pull your socks up, the traditional way?

    I love that they’re digging into THE MODEL’S legs…that just isn’t right. This is how they advertise their product? Making it look nasty and uncomfortable?

    I love zips and buckles. Always have, always will. Especially silver zips on a black background. i have no idea where I would wear these, but I would prolly buy em anyway. lol

    you so wouldn’t be able to wear shoes with these, they would chafe so bad and your ankle would bleed everywhere
