We’re towards the end of November and it’s cold out. REALLY cold out. This means that people have started to break out the beanie caps, long underwear, flannel-lined jeans, and puffy winter jackets that make you look like somebody spray-painted a marshmallow. The one article of clothing that could be argued as one of the warmest, however, has been making its decline as of late; wool socks. High schoolers have not made wool socks a part of their wardrobe as it can be looked down upon as “unfashionable” or, dare I say, “for old people.” These ridiculous accusations take away from wool socks’ main purpose: warmth.
Wearing wool socks is like having two Ewoks from Return of the Jedi clutching at your feet and lower legs for the entire time you wear them; they’re that wooly and warm. I proclaim to you reader: WOOL SOCKS ARE AWESOME! Why wouldn’t you want to be free from cold toes that make you wish your feet didn’t exist? Why wouldn’t you gloat to your friends that you are much warmer than they are because they are non-believers in the magic of wool socks? Embrace the occasional itchiness the wool socks are accustomed to bestow upon you because the warmth they bring is definitely worth it.
