It’s a well-known fact that coffee improves a person’s mood, but this comes with an unfortunate corollary – some people are just not capable of normal human behavior until they’ve had a cup or three to jump-start their brain. Even children soon learn that a relatively benign amount of mischief can bring down the Wrath of Mom if caused too early in the day.
Just to remind everyone of the peril involved in poking a drowsy bear, these ankle socks display their emergency message on the bottom of the feet: “If you can read this, bring me coffee.” This means that the words will be visible when you’re struggling to get out of bed, sitting with your feet up or in case you’ve actually collapsed from acute decaffeination.
They’re pretty cool just as socks, too. Durable, soft, fairly warm and grippy enough to walk over tile or wooden floors, they’re perfect for wearing like slippers year-round. Although only available in white, they’re machine-washable, and just in case coffee isn’t your preferred vice, you can also choose styles demanding chocolate and wine.
Unfortunately, they’re only meant to fit feet of up to a U.S. women’s size 12, which translates to a males 10½ or a European 43. Looks like some guys will just have to keep getting their own damn coffee, but at least these socks will be there to remind them that their significant others will probably enjoy a cup as well.
