Wish List: The Best Type of Stockings

stockingsHere at PlanetShoes, we love socks. Adore them, actually. Each of our individual sock drawers is practically filled to the brim with a wide variety of colors, heights and brands. There’s just something so wonderful about slipping a great pair of socks on under your favorite pair of boots to start a chilly winter day, certain that your toes will stay warm the whole day through. And when you get home, slipping those boots off and padding off near the fireplace curled up with a great book brings a whole new meaning to cozy.

One of our favorite looks for fall is knee-high or mid-calf socks peeking out of a great pair of leather boots. Striped knee-highs worn over jeans, complementing a matching scarf, is a great way to pull a look together flawlessly. The best part is that while you look super put together, you stay warm and toasty all day long!

Most of our best winter socks are made with wool, a material known for its ability to keep you warm while wicking away and absorbing moisture. That quick temperature change when you move from the great outdoors to inside your house can inevitably overheat your feet, but sweat stays practically non-existent when surrounded by wool. That means, no matter the temperature, your feet will stay comfortable.

Check out some of our favorite sock brands… they also make wonderful gifts!

Wish List: Spirited & Snug

spiritedandsnugThe holiday season is inherently warmth-seeking. The crackle of a fireplace on a cold night, complete with a cup of hot chocolate and feet wrapped in wool socks and cozy slippers defines a wonderful December night. Surrounding yourself with friends, family and loved ones brings a whole different, yet even better, side of warmth into a typically cold season.

And let’s not forget the food! Juicy, spicy, simmering Crockpot dinners that infuse your home with delicious smells. Chewy, chocolate-y cookies baking in the oven. Hot mulled cider, warm coffee and a dash of cinnamon. The opportunities are endless when cold weather sets in.

These things, complete with the surrounding holiday spirit, make for a joyful, merry season abound with smiles and excitement. Reflect your own inner warmth outwards with fuzzy, soft boots. The ZDAR booties above are lined with wool to keep your feet super comfy through even the most inclement of weather. A combination of shearling, wool and fur are the perfect way to protect the toes despite the chill.

We all know that special someone who can never seem to get warm, whose toes ache each and every winter season. Give the gift of warmth and receive huge hugs and happy faces galore!
