Inspired by the Space Coast of Florida, these Rocket Socks are perfect for wearing around the house and with sandals. A little comfort goes a long way when you’re accustomed to walking across tile or hardwood floors in your bare feet. They’re just the ticket for providing a soft touch, while allowing room for your toes to breathe, so they also keep you from getting too hot! And for those who just prefer to cover those buggers, there’s an optional toe included.
