This is in no way something new to Japan, and hardly news-worthy. I have never posted about it though, so here it is.
Apparently they’re good for circulation.
But, don’t they look a little creepy? I mean, sure the flowery pattern on the sock is swell and all, but look, it makes your foot look like some sort of a creepy hand or something.
[Japanese Lesson: キモイ (kimoi); Slang for: 気持ち悪い (kimochi warui); English Meaning is “Gross, Icky, kinda creepy, a little bit difficult to look stomach – from my perspective anyway.”]
I’m not a sock basher. I’m sure if you were skilled enough to be able to type with your toes, it would be much easier to type with your toes in these socks than with regular socks. Much like it is easier to type with leather fingered gloves, than with fat mittens. I’m sure you’ll agree. Unless of course you can’t type with your toes, but then your opinion doesn’t matter now does it?
Are these toe socks available in the US as well? Do people use them??
Disclaimer. That’s not my foot.
