10 Totally Unnecessary Designer Socks (And Shoes To Wear Them With)

There’s few things as frivolous as a pair of $300 socks. But that doesn’t make us want them any less. High-end labels extended their luxury focus to socks this season, using the finest materials such as cashmere or new, unique prints.

It’s time to up your sock game, and considering spring ’17 was the season of socks and sandals, you may want to start investing now. Highlights include Gucci’s embroidered bee sock, which we envision being worn with a classic dress shoe such as a Thom Browne laceup.

Stella McCartney’s striped thigh-high socks add a dash of 1970s flair to a Chloe suede bootie. Palm Angels offered a metallic striped sock, which is the perfect match to Raf Simons’ Varsity-style boot.

For a more subtle look, try pairing Rochas’ pastel socks with a similarly-hued pump by Christian Louboutin. Pepper and Mayne’s ribbed pink sock is an elegant pairing with Brother Vellies’ mint slides.
