Feast Your Eyes on These Sushi Socks
Yup. Feast your eyes on Sushi Socks. Rolled up, they look remarkably like giant versions of the stuff your local sushi restaurant would present to you on a platter. (Deluxe, natch.) Unrolled, they're a bit more like sashimi.
Tokyo Otaku Mode Premium Shop, which sells the Japan-manufactured polyester-cotton-blend socks for $5.39 a pair and $28.99 for a six-pair set and ships internationally, touts them as "comfortable and durable," noting, for those as particular about their socks as they are about their raw fish, that the "sushi detail is knitted into the sock with colored thread instead of being printed."
The socks are available in seven toothsome-looking styles: Masuzushi (trout sushi), Shrimp, Octopus, Red Caviar, Tuna, Salmon and Egg. There's no word on how they'll hold up if you dip them in wasabi and soy sauce.
Honestly, I'm feeling famished just looking at them. Somehow, I never noticed before that just one letter separates foot and food.
