Last night I was lying on the couch and “slouch socks” popped into my head. All my fellow Generation X’ers should remember these: socks that were designed to be pushed down around the ankle and bottom of the calf. The cool kids who didn’t care whether or not their feet got too hot would wear more than one pair of slouch socks so they could be all color coordinated.
Back in the day I had a few pairs of slouch socks. I can’t remember all of the colors I had, but I seem to recall a peach-colored pair and a pale mint green pair. These coordinated with two shirts I had, which I wore with acid washed or stonewashed jeans, of course. I was so rad.
