Kix’ies: Thigh Highs that STAY UP — Genius!

A story for you: I used to be the child who refused socks, abhorred shoes, and just generally ran about in the middle of winter barefoot. The one pair of slippers I owned were owned because they had ducks on them, but otherwise had been worn a whole whopping total of once. Fast forward to last week, where the temperatures here were chilly, but not so cold that you needed to break out your winter coat, and I was walking around for most of the week feeling as if my toes had fallen off (or at the very least gone numb).

Apparently, with age, I have lost my incredible superpower of perpetually warm feet.

And so I’ve been in dire need of socks. Because I have none (okay, so I have one thick pair for when I go ice skating, but those aren’t exactly acceptable for wearing to work).

Enter Kix’ies.

An embarrassingly long time ago, Sara spoke of the brand Kix’ies, who she had the chance to see at New York Fashion Week. They were kind enough to send me a pair of their Dana Lynn thigh highs to try out, but at the time summer was in full swing and not only was I not at work everyday, but it was a tad too warm to even dream of wearing anything on your feet.

Once the temperature cooled down, however, I couldn’t wait to try out my pair. I worried that I’d be constantly tugging them up all day, since most thigh highs I’ve worn have a tendency of sliding down, but was pleasantly surprised: they stayed up. All. Day. I much prefer thigh highs as opposed to stockings or tights, but it was never worth the hassle of having to hike them back up every ten minutes. Now, I no longer have that as an excuse.

Despite a few lines that may show up on your leg from having elastic around it all day, Kix’ies are ridiculously comfortable and no more difficult to put on than any other pair of tights/stockings/thigh highs (sometimes just getting them on requires you to do an intricate dance). I think I’ve just found the solution to my “keeping my feet warm” and “staying comfortable yet classy at work” dilemma!

I received a pair of Kix’ies to review, but all opinions are my own. If they weren’t so awesome, you could right well bet I wouldn’t be writing about them!

Are thigh highs (and/or cold feet) the bane of your work-existence too? How’d you fix it!?
