Life’s rough when you’re a vampire slayer. One minute you’re falling in love or contemplating your destiny…the next minute you’re stalking off into the shadows and figuring out how to wash vampire dust out of your clothes. With a day job like that, you’d better at least be heading out in style. These socks have you covered: stabby, stake-through-the-heart cables extending from the leg and onto the foot, eventually diminishing and disappearing altogether, with only darkness and plain stockinette left behind. Stake, or be staked. It’s all in a day’s work.
