artist sock set lets you wear world famous painters on your feet




chattyfeet is a quirky brand that offers ‘silly sock personalities’ for adults and children alike. the studio’s line of cheeky characters sees illustrated faces and figures worn on feet, colorfully drawn onto comfortable cotton socks. 

‘frida callus’




designers sam green, mónica monteiro, and çiğdem ‘chi’ michalski have created a set of artist-inspired socks for chattyfeet. the ‘artist collection’ includes illustrations of world famous painters from frida kahlo to pablo picasso, humorously named ‘frida callus’ and ‘feetasso’. other characters include dutch painter ‘vincent van toe’ and british artists ‘andy sock-hole’ and ‘david sock-knee’. the set has been produced in portugal, and is made from 75% combed cotton ,23% polyamide, and 2% elastane. chattyfeet founders gil and humberto say that their ‘cool sock characters have been known to become their owners’ alter egos’ and hope to ‘inspire you to create your own work of art or even perform in a sock puppet show.’
