I have a bit of an ongoing joke with my family, where my parents would always tell me to take off my shoes at the door as a child and not walk on the carpet incase I got it dirty and I would just roll my eyes and kick off my shoes in the hall. Now that I’m a mother to my two nippers I literally twitch if they attempt to step off of the door mat with their shoes still on, let alone put their feet all over the furniture. So when I spotted these cool sneaker socks from Cheeky Baldrick I couldn’t resist testing my parents reaction to causing shoegate in their lounge.
These hilarious sneaker socks are realistically printed on both sides with a sole, lace detail and built in socks that really make you do a double take because they look so real. The Union Jack design is pretty fashion forward and patriotic and would probably allow you a few trolley dashes at least around Tesco’s before anybody realises you’re in public without shoes. When I leapt onto the lounge pouffe in my sneaker socks my mothers words were “What on earth do you think you’re doing with those on in here!?” and I chuckled for a good ten minutes before going back to being a sensible and boring parent again.
Priced at an unbelieveable £4.99 from Cheeky Baldrick, these Union Jack sneaker socks make the ideal secret Santa, gift or joke for friends and family.
