Folks with larger feet can also get moving in a pair of Michelle Obama men's socks.
Frida Kahlo Socks
Frida Kahlo was a Mexican painter known for self-portraits, her fascination with birth and death and her untamed unibrow. She is a beacon for people on the fringe of convention — the odd, the queer and the eccentric. In her diary she wrote: “I used to think I was the strangest person in the world. But then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I'm here, and I’m just as strange as you.” So when you want wild socks to match your wild heart, don these feminist Frida socks featuring Frida Kahlo with flowers in her hair, and when in doubt ask yourself, “What would Frida do?”
Ruth Bader Ginsburg Socks
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg once said, “When I'm sometimes asked when will there be enough [women on the Supreme Court] and I say, 'When there are nine,' people are shocked. But there'd been nine men, and nobody's ever raised a question about that.” Ginsburg has dedicated her life tirelessly, even fighting through serious medical incidents, to eliminate gender-based stereotyping. She has long been a role model for women of all ages and now you can carry her wisdom everywhere you walk with “When there are nine” RBG novelty socks.
Science doesn’t have to be all serious. In fact, one of the most popular scientists, physicist Albert Einstein, shows us that science can be silly! An equations man AND a ladies’ man, Einstein once said “When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That’s relativity.” Get silly yourself with these fun socks featuring the famous picture of Albert Einstein sticking out his tongue. These blue Einstein socks fit most men, while these gray Einstein tongue socks are a smaller size suitable for most women and kids 10 and up.
Bob Ross Socks
“We don’t make mistakes, just happy little accidents.” Bob Ross, famous TV art tutor and all-around good guy, makes us feel as fuzzy in our hearts as the fuzzy hair on his head. He taught us to embrace our errors and celebrate our shortcomings as bricks in the road towards our success and happiness through art. Immortalize the man and the hair on these funky socks with a fuzzy afro. Buy large Bob Ross socks with fuzzy hair in a larger size to fit most guys, or smaller Bob Ross hair socks for women.
