Casual Friday doesn’t exist anymore. Every day is casual in a majority of companies. But even though the code is casual, that doesn’t mean you’re allowed to go crusty. In other words, you can take your shoes off in your office but don’t be sporting any old man Gold Toe hosiery or the last clean pair of ankle socks in the drawer.
These Chup socks are the perfect combination of classy, comfortable and crazy looking enough that’ll they’ll get noticed by coworkers or houseguests. CHUP takes sock-making seriously. Like, “borderline psycho” type of serious. Their passion and dedication makes for some seriously awesome footwear.
Based in Tokyo’s Sendagi neighborhood, CHUP makes their socks in limited editions with intricate patterns inspired by the natural world and folk art. With designs inspired by tribal and indigenous art from around the world, every CHUP sock is “a unique gem, worthy of the Japanese tradition of going shoeless.”
Keep in mind when purchasing — CHUP socks are tightly woven and will stretch to the shape of your foot over time, like a pair of jeans or a leather shoe. Their exceptionally tight weave molds to your feet as you wear them so order accordingly.
If you’re not exactly the “shoeless in the office” type guy, that’s fine, CHUP socks look good in a pair of shoes too. Just as long as you now how to make shoes shine like new. Because you don’t put a fine looking woman inside a rusted Ford Tempo.
