Statement Socks for Grooms
Brides are having all kinds of fun with cute shoes in a rainbow of hues, so it’s about time grooms got to kick up their heels as well—with silly socks. Stephan Ferreira donned a mustache-patterned mustard pair to tie the knot with his wife, Kelsey, at Hillsboro’s DeArmond Garden Estate on August 29, 2009. “They were a way to inject a little humor and distinguish my suit from the other men in the party. I don’t have a mustache, so they were kind of poking fun at me,” he laughs. We’ve seen other dudes showing their sense of humor on their toes with ninjas, robots, bicycles, lightning bolts, paper airplanes—there’s a pattern for every personality from Portland’s Sock It to Me.
