MUJI thinks we should all wear right angle socks

Inspired by a Czech grandmother’s hand-knit socks


Turns out MUJI is pretty serious about what goes on your feet.

According to the minimalist firm from Japan, most socks are made at a 120-degree angle that are simply uncomfortable to wear. Inspired by a Czech grandmother that makes right-angle socks, MUJI designers sets out on a quest to design the best right-angle socks that fit perfectly at the heels and yet doesn’t bunch up at the front of feet.

The result is a pair that MUJI claims will fit snugly and a cuff that will stay without sagging. Still not convinced? Buy a pair and see how it works for yourself.
