Quirky Socks Immortalizing Artists Let You Wear Famous Painters on Your Feet

Fans of art history and puns have found a kindred spirit in ChattyFeet, a company known for their quirky and unusual footwear. They’ve recently launched a series of colorful artist socks that immortalize famous folks throughout painting such as Frida Callus, Vincent Van Toe, and Feetasso.

The delightful designs feature the artists’ faces stretched over the toes while legs are reserved for the motifs and colors associated with the particular person. Van Toe's socks have swirling patterns you'd admire in the night sky painting while Andy Sock-hole rocks the floppy-haired popularized in the mid-20th century.

For those looking to creatively warm their feet, ChattyFeet sells their garments through their online shop.
