These Over-Knee Socks are Waterproof & Stylish

Shopping Fashion Souvenirs

Japanese variety store Village Vanguard has really outdone itself this time with the introduction of a new product, which, to be honest, we’re not sure how we’ve managed to survive this long without: sexy swimming socks!

The concept of underwater knee socks has recently become popular with photographers and those who enjoy the sight of ladies in socks coupled with the aesthetic of underwater photography.

The socks look cool on dry land, too! They retail for ¥3,024 (US$26) per pair at Village Vanguard shops—which is a bit pricey for a pair of socks, but at least they’re waterproof and, as a result, possibly more durable than bog-standard cotton socks.
