And One More Good Idea

I tend not to talk too much about gifts that I've received from people or companies because I worry that it might make me seem like, well, a braggart. However, I did recently receive a gift from Tory Burch that I want to share with you because I think it's really clever. They're cotton travel socks that you can wear while going through the airport security check.

In the past, I've used footie stockings because I can't bear the thought of walking barefoot through the security line. It's the thought of all of those germs that makes me shudder. The Tory socks are much better looking than my drugstore stockings, and the best part is that you can then put them away in the little pouch. Oh, and you don't have to worry about sliding in the socks because the Tory logo on the bottom is made of little grippy silicone dots. Very stylish and hygienic too!

    Cute but $48 for travel socks is steep even for Tory Burch. Glad they were free!

  2. What a great idea! I needed these last week when I had to tiptoe barefoot through security at LAX.

  3. Indeed a great idea! I wonder if a men's version say with one's fraternity emblazonments be available? Really like the non-slip sole of the "socks". And the pouch to confine the ickyness!!!

    Men hate germs too. Coping with locker room athletic feet disease is about all I can deal with on occasion. Third World bacteria is quite another matter to wish avoidance from.
