The Stat Sheet: Falke Run Socks
We may have found the only pair of socks that you could wear with a proper pair of shoes and a suit or take a five-mile jog in.
Theyâ€™re Falkeâ€™s Run Socks, and the Câ€™Hâ€™Câ€™Mâ€™ shop has got a restock of them just in time for any semiformal action you might be getting yourself into this time of year. Hereâ€™s what else you should know about them.
The Story: Falke has been making some good-looking performance socks for some time nowâ€”with ergonomic footbeds and nonslip heels. But these donâ€™t stop at the ankle like most. They follow the form of a dress sock by rising to the calf. And the navy mĂ©lange would look right at home between a charcoal trouser hem and tobacco cap-toes. (Or running shorts and Nikes.)
Who to Channel: A very dapper Steve Prefontaineâ€”but ease up on the running before your feet begin to bleed, you donâ€™t want to ruin these socks.
When to Wear It: Any day youâ€™re planning on going jogging or putting some extra mileage on your wingtips. (Or anticipating a meeting that could break into a game of two-hand touch.)
Degree of Difficulty: Theyâ€™re socks. Donâ€™t overthink it.
