Necessaries: Richer Poorer Wool Socks


Our ancient ancestors were tough people. They wandered a violent earth chasing down food that often fought back. They made clothes and shelter with what was left over from dinner and they did it barefoot. We have heated car seats, Amazon Prime and cronuts, fucking CRONUTS. Point is, there are a-lot of unnecessary comforts in our modern lives but quality socks are not among them. Richer Poorer now has a full line of tastefully designed wool socks that are as comfortable in Vans in SoCal as they are in Chippewa’s in Vermont. I know this because I’ve worn them in both scenarios and unlike many other brands, RP’s socks didn’t leave my feet sweaty or cold. Do yourself a favor, pass on the organic toilet paper and the vegan shampoo, pick up a couple pairs of these socks instead, then maybe get a doughssant. After all, some indulgences are just fucking worth it.

*full disclosure RP are friends of the program but I don’t back bullshit products and if they were BS I’d put them on blast.


Today’s Most Wanted

About a year ago I though to myself, “hmm, wouldn’t boat shoe laces look cool in these beat up Vans Authentics?”(they did). Here we are in 2011 and this summer Keds for Steve Alan has some familiar looking kicks dropping. Check out the collection right here.

Great Moments In Advertising

The Van Doren Rubber Company Inc has some radical new shoes for you to rock in critical situations! I think that colorway might currently be available. Check Zappos but only after you’ve consulted your local skateshop.
