Novelty socks have always been popular as gag gifts, but recently people have taken to wearing weird socks as part of their everyday attire – when playing sports, going out, or even just hanging out at home. As is usually the case when it comes to clothing, women and kids get the best, wildest, and most colorful designs. However, by scouring the internet, our crack research team was able to round up the following ten pairs of crazy socks for men.
You can call these socks tacky or even ugly – but you can’t say that they aren’t fun. Buy a pair for yourself or a friend. There aren’t many gifts that are as memorable, practical, and cheap as a pair of goofy socks.
1. Christmas Santa Socks
What list of wacky socks would be complete without a tacky Christmas design? These Santa socks are the perfect accessory to go with your ugly Christmas sweater. They also make a perfectly kitschy white elephant gift.
2. Mustache Socks
Three things never fail to make a guy smile – kids (someone else’s), puppies, and handlebar mustaches. With these offbeat socks, there’s a smile waiting for you under your pant leg any time you want it.
Okay, that was weird.
3. Pirate Robot Socks
Nothing brings out the little boy in someone like pirates and robots. Except maybe a combination of the two. If you like quirky socks that will baffle your friends, here you go.
4. Silverback Socks
These gorilla socks from SockGuy feature a design that’s more subtle and frankly badass than any other on this list. That silverback gorilla peaking through the darkness looks intense. These seem perfect as sports socks, for when you want to intimidate your opponent by flashing your animal side.
5. Unicorn Socks
Why can’t dudes wear clothing with unicorns on it? And rainbows? Well, they can, but only on their feet.
Hey, don’t complain to us. We don’t make the rules.
6. Ninja Socks
With these awesome socks, you can harness the power of ten tiny ninjas – per foot. Now with more ninjas.
7. WTF Socks
If you have the sort of life where you’re often saying WTF, then these are the socks for you. Whenever someone does something dumb, don’t waste your breath or risk censure for being profane. Just show ’em the socks.
8. Shark Socks
When it comes to awesomeness, sharks are in the same category as mustaches, robot pirates, and ninjas. In other words, you don’t need any more justification than that to put sharks on a sock. However, it is cool how the pointed tip of a foot looks like a shark nose.
9. Bikini Girl Socks
Okay, here’s one more thing we forgot to mention that never fails to make men smile. In the cold of winter, these warm bikini girl socks serve as a reminder of all the *ahem* beautiful sights of summer.
10. Breakfast Socks
You knew any list about guys had to include bacon at some point, right? Well, these socks up the awesomeness even further by featuring bacon and eggs. These two breakfast staples join forces to form one kooky looking face.
