I usually end up buying my boots a half-size bigger than I should. Why? Stupid socks.
I don socks over my already tights-clad feet to:
- Keep them warm.
- Keep the boots dry.
- And most importantly, keep the tights from snagging on the boot zippers.
So when a good friend (a fellow fashionista who could online power shop any of you under your laptop) told me about Bootights by Leg Up, I did a tiny jig. I was wearing kicky boots at the time, so I thought it apropos.
They’re socks and tights. The calf-length sock part keeps feet padded, moisture wicked and tights protected from boot zipper snags.
Now why the hell didn’t I invent these?
