Well, I can tell you that toe socks are no longer a cool item. I am wearing them now because they work well with flip-flops and I don't want to go sockless to work. I scoured the mall today looking for some, and I think I found the only two in the whole place. They were, of course, in the last place I was going to look and I was about to go to plan B.
However, they're rather ugly. Why would I want pom-poms on my socks? Luckily, they'll be easy to take out. They were also about 70% off (probably due to the pom-poms) which was perfect too.
