Ready for your one-stop-sock-shop? Sweden's Happy Socks will debut their very first U.S. store on Friday at 436 West Broadway. The space is small—is a jewel box shop full of socks considered a drawer?—but that's no matter, because it's neatly filled with loads of colorful options. The store is almost entirely white, allowing the patterned garb to shine along two walls.
Unisex styles include stripes, leopard, zebra, zig-zag, and polka dot, all in spring-ready hues like green and various pastels. Under the display case in the back are baby socks, which are factually the most adorable size of sock. In the future, the Happy Socks guys will offer styles unique to the New York store.
