‘Do we know if reality exists, inside the wonderland of our inquisitive minds?Cartoonish faces tapping at fantastical windows, dream like state of mind altering our realities, I was wired all wrong too caught up in the mistakes of my reality, emerged like a dolphin in a sea of fantasy, no rules apply we are all family, that bully who maimed you a finless shark at the bottom of the ocean, headless children saunter past, a grotesque perversion of innocence I rub my eyes, the candyfloss is back pink tinted fantasies more to my taste, unicorns riding on rainbow streams, bringing rays of light into every child’s home’
What if we were all an object of one persons imagination and the realities that we believed we were living were just an excerpt from the Truman show. Would that necessarily be a bad thing to be living a fantasy that belonged to someone else? Not according to Chatty Feet, the sock company who believes that taking on the identities of others is healthy and beneficial to our wellbeing and sanity. We become bored of our own lives and transgress our own identities to take on the roles of others and it is liberating. Suddenly we are kings and queens marching through scenes of centuries past, we are cosplay characters fighting our own battles and bowing before the lord of the universe. Or we are normal humans just looking for a way out of our own lives and seek to procure a reality that moves beyond the limitations and restrictions of our own universe. Being an adult is tough but being someone else is an entirely different ball game and thanks to Chatty Feet your dream of another identity is one sock away.
One night a few years ago the founders Gil and Humberto wondered whether ‘socks that could talk’ were the answer to our burning need to not be ourselves and lo and behold ‘Chatty Feet’ were born. In the ‘serious’ universe that is governed by grown ups Gil and Humberto took inspiration from the rose tinted world of ‘It’s A Kid’s Life’ and injected some much needed Vitamin Happy into our dreary lives. We spend so much time being fixated on the negative events of our lives (including myself) that we forget to enjoy our present and it is these precious few ‘happy’ or ‘chatty’ moments that we must grasp with one candy-‘flossed’ hand. Meet ‘Sandy’ and ‘Danny‘ the socks that are guaranteed to give you a permanent smile. Your new best friends, Danny and Sandy are slowly creeping their way into the homes of all the coolest fantasists and there is no telling where they will go next. See Danny sipping mojitos at the poolside bar while Sandy rides into the sunset on a quad. Slicked back hair and vintage curls combines ‘rockabilly cool’ with an ‘adventurous spirit’ and as ‘head cheerleader’ Sandy can kick some serious ass. You can always rely on Sandy to put that ‘lipstick smile’ back on your face and with Danny’s poster Elvis looks,this is a cool duo that just keeps on giving!
With his Elvis style pompadour, Danny’s 50’s aesthetic makes him the perfect ‘Chatty Feet’ to keep your tootsies happy. Culturally relevant while sticking to its cosplay, cartoon-esque signature style Danny is the perfect combination of old and new and when the going gets tough just stick some ‘Danny’s’ on your feet to keep that smile firmly in place. Danny might be a tough guy on the outside but Danny is a softie at heart and will always lookout for Sandy when she is not too busy kicking ass. Together Danny and Sandy are a power couple to rival the Beckham’s and their ability to cheer up the grumpiest of patrons is a magical skill in itself.
