The Origin of Toe Socks

The Origin of Toe Socks

Toe socks, as the name suggests, are socks with five toes wrapped one by one. Like hands-on gloves, toes can stretch freely and flexibly.

Today, five toe socks can be worn by both men and women, but in 1969, it appeared only to meet the needs of women.

We have no way to prove why the American woman named Ethel Russell at that time developed such a pair of socks that were not aesthetically acceptable. However, this pair of toe socks were very popular in the United States in the 1970s. In the 1990s, with a rebellious and trendy spirit, it came back to people's attention and was supported by young people. In the 1970s, the Hippies style prevailed. Young people yearned for freedom and rebelled against customs. Fashionable girls also pursued the comfort and liberation of external clothing. They put on unrestrained, free and casual clogs, cowhide sandals with toe socks. In the cold winter, some people would like to wear flip-flops to hang out. At this time, knee-length toe socks came into being. In order to make this kind of look more attractive, fun toe socks are designed with bright stripe colors.

In 2011, the custom toe socks were well-known, the American female astronaut Sandra Magnus contributed a lot. Sandra wore a pair of pink and blue striped toe socks when she was on a mission to the International Space Station in order to add a bit of life in her boring space work, which is particularly bright and lovely in the dim space station, and also makes the fun toe socks fly into space, thus, fun toe socks became world-renowned.
