I’m going to let myself believe you had a little shudder then. Just from the title.

A Brand-New Pair of Socks.

There’s nothing to beat it.

Not yet moulded to the actual shape of a real human foot, not stretched, no holes exposing unloved toes or unremarkable edges of ankle, no dodgy seamwork digging into the cuticle.

A new pair of socks. Fresh, like a sprinkle of daisies over your feet. Trust the shudder. New socks are among the best things in life.
