Heatshrink Socks   (+9)  [vote for, against]

You put them on loose, and the warmth of your body (or on cold days, a hairdryer) shrinks them to a snug fit. Going through the wash slackens them again.

" far too loose sheep intestine technologies "
( ah, that brings back some good memories ) [normzone, Dec 11 2015]

Who needs to use blue nail polish with these on, especially when sitting by the fire.

//"One size fits all ..."// - ah, so you've read J.R.R. Tolkein's poorly-received prequel, "Lord of the Socks"?

You could use them for playing golf, especially if you had a hole in one.

These can breathe, right? Otherwise I anticipate a problem...
-- RayfordSteele, Dec 11 2015

Not just breathe, they have a heartbeat and need to be fed. They're also extremely territorial about just whose feet can wear them. One thief who 'borrowed' a pair met with a grizzly end as the Heatshrink Socks, somehow feeling the injustice against their original owner, shrank all the way to a terminal case of deep vein thrombosis.

How does one take them off?? (plunge feet into ice water?)
-- xandram, Dec 11 2015

Post-shrinking, they should be no tighter than an ordinary sock. Ordinarily.

OK, I'll bun this. I really don't like socks that stretch out and go down into my boots or shoes! +

If we're going to make shrinkwrap sheep skin, why not make advances in far too loose sheep intestine technologies?

Fourex fitting a little loose, [4and20] ?
-- normzone, Dec 11 2015

Well, it's the twentyfourex, after the first twentythree sheep met their maker.
