David Bowie…socks? Yep.

David Bowie was one of the most important rock’n’roll fashion mavens of all time. And now those sensibilities are coming to your feet.

Happy Socks has secured a license from Bowie’s people to create the “Happy Socks x Bowie Collection,” eight pairs inspired mostly by his Ziggy Stardust/Aladdin Sane periods.

A package of eight pairs sells for US$96, which is a lot more than my Kirkland athletic socks from Costco. You can get individual pairs for US$16.

There are also kids socks like these for US$10.
