Schoolhouse Socks (aka teacher bribes)

The school year is almost over, and it's the perfect time to get some school-themed socks.  Whether you need to bribe thank a teacher for not failing you or thanks them for genuinely being a good teacher; whether you want to commemorate your favorite subject at graduation, or simply celebrate that you'll never have to take it again; Whether you're graduating high school, college, middle school, court-mandated-community-service-school, or anything else, celebrate with a fun and inexpensive gift of socks.

We have gotten out some of our favorites to make it easy to shop for yourself or others, based on your favorite school subject.

Nothing fancy here, just a good #2 pencil and some binder paper. But wait! They also keep your feet warm! So much better than that time the power went out and we had to burn all our homework and pencils to keep warm. Actually, no, that was way better. But these are pretty cool too. For a limited time they're on sale, so be sure to check them out. Also available in a sockin' 3-pack.

For the artist we have Van Gogh’s iconic Starry Night. They found yet another place to put this enduring classic, and the detailed rendering really does the work justice. For those more inclined to the graphic arts, we have the Blamo! Comic Book Knee Highs with all the elements of your favorite graphic novel. Composition Book Crews from Ashi Dashi are a more subtle reminder of those times you accidentally brought the wrong notebook to art because THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME.

Believe it or not, there aren’t a whole lot of math-themed socks out there. Technically, geometry is a field of mathematics, so any of our geometric prints would be great for the math-mind who craves structure and straight-lined, regular patterns. Argyle, Big Dots, and those plaid leggings (Great Scot!) are just a few of the fun, familiar prints you'll find. We'll work on getting some real math socks in before we do another school-themed socks event. I know, It's embarrassing. I KNOW!

The face and iconic top hat should be familiar to you history buffs. Our Honest Abe Crews as eye-catching as the man himself, and a lot more fun (trust us, we've met the guy). We also have a sock commemorating one of the most historically important dogs, the noble corgi. It's not pictured here because, c'mon, Abe Lincoln Socks. You really shouldn't need anything else.

For those who love Bunsen burners, valence electrons, exothermic reactions, and everything Newton (delicious fig bars included), we have our science socks. Men’s Constellation Crews and Women’s Planet Knee Highs let you show your love for space, while our Mad Science Knee Highs are a cute way to show your love of the lab.  I know what you're thinking, "shouldn't those great Composition Book Socks be here, too?"  To that I say "I'm not answering your questions because this is my blog and I don't wanna."

For those who are “less-academically minded,” lunch was surely the best time of the day. Relive those great cafeteria meals with our food-themed crew socks. We have corn, bacon, other bacon (I KNOW, RIGHT?), and, our personal favorite, the Burger Crew Sock. Mix and match to get a well-rounded meal.   

Now we would never condone the use of our products to cheat. But if you were looking for a way to get a leg-up (get it?!) on the rest of the class, the detail on these Map of the World Tights would definitely let you do it. That same level of detail (and let’s face it, pure awesomeness) is reason enough to get them even if you don't need to cheat.  So really, everyone should own these, is what I'm saying.  And not just because I'm the one selling them.  Well, mostly because I'm the one selling them.

We all had our sports. I was one of those super cool kids who excelled at badminton. With a court the size of a parking spot and a super-light racket, if there is a high school sport which required less running and upper body strength, I sure haven’t found it. these socks are also great for fans of "more athletic" sports (or "real" sports, as my father would refer to them).  Also check out our Knee High Chuck Taylor Socks, made to look like a pair of shoes with socks on the top. It’s a sock made to look like a sock. Mind blown.   

It counts a period if you went everyday, right? Truthfully, if you need these Bad Ass Socks to let people know how bad ass you are, you’re doing it wrong. But if you already have the reputation to back it up, get a little well-earned recognition by advertising to the world. Also, these will probably land you in detention if you wear them to school. So, you know, if you were looking for a way in, here it is!

Let us know what your favorite subject is (or was for you old people uggh get off the internet you're so old) and grab the right ones for the job today.  They work great as nerd-camouflage, making teachers think you actually care about whatever it is they're saying.  And if you don't actually want to wear them, they also make great bribes for those teachers who just need a little nudge in the right direction.
