These OTKs are basically a longer version of Socklings (and an extra-longer version of Bobby Socklings), so when I learned of their existence I snapped up four pairs like you wouldn’t believe.

They’re amazingly comfortable, you guys. The band is nice and wide, they’re stretchy enough for my 16.5″ calves, and they’re a good middle-weight for late fall California weather.

did have trouble getting the right stocking to stay glued to my leg, but I’m pretty sure that was just my general incompetence and not something to be blamed on the stockings (or on the sock glue).

I’ve been strongly considering an anti-tights stance this winter, so these are a perfect addition to my arsenal of longer socks. Come at me, cold weather!

  1. First of all, let me say that I just LOVE this outfit! The colors, the textures, the style…everything about it is wonderful! Secondly, you’ve almost convinced me to try OTK socks. Since I have stocky legs, I’ve never even considered trying them, and I did not know (until your blog informed me) that there was such a thing as sock glue. However, I think the time has passed for sock wearing here in the Heartland – Old Man Winter has arrived early. I’m wearing fleece lined leggings under everything these days!
