Socks for very special feet

Just how serious are you about the socks & heels trend? Doing the rounds right now are a pair of Rodarte hand-crocheted socks made from mohair and alpaca. With such delicate craftsmanship and fabrics it should come as no surprise then that these socks are also so fragile that they can not be washed, only spot cleaned, thus may only be wearable once or twice. And if that weren’t indulgent enough, these Rodarte socks retail for US$500 – thus solely for those who are serious about wearing socks in heels as a statement piece or for those with very special feet only.

Thanks for the heads up, refinery29.
