I wanted to bag some 'Injiji' or Vibram 'Lizard' socks to fit the shoes, but they are pretty damn expensive. The shoes are not cheap, and I refuse to be screwed £10 for just one pair of socks.
So I modified some cheapo 'five for three quid' socks and made my own socks compatible with the FiveFingers - 'Tramp Chique' too, it's a whole new fashion trend.
Step 1: Required Items
- Needle and thread
- 'Man' level stitching skills (the basic ability to wield needle and thread in an crudely offensive manner versus fabrics)
Step 2: Make the First Stitch
- Put the socks on
- With threaded needle, find a suitable place between your big toe and second toe as close to the foot as you dare. Five Finger Fillet aficionados will have this down pat. Be careful! Don't stitch yourself into your socks - they'd become impossible to take off to wash.
- Pull the thread through and make another pass through the sock with the needle at the same point as before
Step 3: Reinforce the Stitching
- Continue stitching back and forth through the sock around about the same place, basically we're reinforcing the connection between sock top and bottom that we've made
Step 4: Making the Cut
Step 5: Reinforcing the Stitching Some More
Step 6: Finito
Possible improvements include using a sewing machine to reinforce the cut edges to prevent fraying.
