Ozone Socks

I bought some socks from Ozone Socks through Fab.com about a couple of months back. Ozone Socks specialize in unique sock designs, styles and patterns. Now, just to get it out there, I'm super old school when I comes to socks. I believe socks are meat to be worn and not seen, so the idea of wearing patterned socks with so everyone can see them is completely foreign and alien to me, and is definitely going to take some getting used to. So why did I buy socks from this company, you ask. To be completely honest, these ribbed socks that I saw reminded me of the kind can-can dancers wear, and my usually somewhat repressed risque side came through (my super ego being completely powerless to stop it, of course) and I had to buy them. I also bought some weird sock/shoe/foot covering things, but I'll get to that later.

Because I was buying everything through Fab, it was all half price and would be shipped from the supplier, to Fab's warehouse, and then to me. As I'm sure I've mentioned before, the one thing I hate about wholesale discount sites is that it takes like a month for your items to get to you, and this was no exception (patience is most certainly NOT one of my virtues). However, after nearly three weeks and my order had not even shipped I contact Fab's Customer Service. Through a good bit of email corresponding with the customer service team, and a few more weeks of waiting, I finally got my order (the delay had something to do with the suppliers not shipping my items in on time, or something like that). Of course I was PO'ed by all of this but the Fab Customer Service teams gets brownie points for being so helpful! I've had to deal with a lot of customer service problems in my day, but I must admit Fab definitely has the best customer service ever. The people were really quick to email me, and they even emailed me while they were still looking into the order just to let me know that they were still working on it, instead of just leaving me hanging like most companies do. All in all, it was a not so great shopping experience that was handled very well and expertly by the people at Fab. Fab Customer Service, I thank you!



Anyway, back to the socks. These are the Black Surprise Rib Over the Knee Socks (the cancan like ones) that I bought. They also come in Prune (purple) and Bordeaux (red), but I thought the Black would be more versatile. These are also super comfortable and soft.  Because I'm a little vertically challenged, the socks go way over my knee, go up to nearly the end of my legs. But since they are so long, I can wear them under skirts like I do my tights.

The sock/shoe/foot covering things were a bit disappointing though. There actually is no description of what they are on the website, so, judging from the picture, I though they were like those soft ballet slippers. In fact, they are some kind on fitted foot socks (I honestly can't describe them better than this). I guess they would be good to wear with shoes heels that hurt me feet, so this way me feet don't rub against my shoes, and the fitted socks can be hidden at the same time.
