knee highs
« on: June 15, 2017, 08:15:06 PM »
I normally skate in Mondor knee highs in tan or black.
I'd like to get some white ones. Do they even make these? I can't find them.
Yes I'm in with the 90's. I have a skating blog. http://icedoesntcare.blogspot.com/

I've never seen white knee high tights.  Searching for that item reminded me that I've never been able to wearing real stockings, sigh.  I'm a little jealous of ladies who can wear stockings without garters.  Or cross their legs and have their ankles touch.

I know I've seen a site that sells skating socks in colors other than tan and black (blue, green, pink, etc.).  I don't remember whether white was one of the options.  I'll see if I can find it.

You can also buy the Colorflow ones on Amazon.  They qualify for Prime.  I have four pairs, blue and purple (you get two pairs of the same color with each purchase), and I love them.  They're so soft and comfy, and a bit thinner than the Mondor ones, which is nice.

Anyone know how the Colorflow ones work on chunky calves? I've been wearing Mondor because they have a generous fit.

Colorflow ones are even stretchier/more generous than Mondor.

My daughter loves the colorflow skating socks, and they seem to last a longer than the Mondor ones too.
