Bought some socks that cut off the circulation to my feet. Ouch. Cold feet. Angry white ankles.

Need a device to measure the forces the elastic will cause to avoid these sorts of socks. Or seek out and destroy such socks as sneak into the sock drawer.

Something plastic for home use. like a portable scale?

Brushed aluminum for in store use. ( To be Chained to wall in sock department. )

       Simple. Wear them inside out, that way your feet will be fine. Of course, the rest of your body may suffer.

       Rubbish, you'd have to wear them upside-down for that.

       Yes, on reflection that makes more sense. Wear them upside- down. If you wear them inside out, you'll just cut off the circulation to your shoes.

       muklucks or ugg boots. Fun to say. Keep your feet warm.

       Um... I just shove them down by my ankles. Function over form and all that.
