The year was 1940, DC comics published a comic book about a superhero, who lived in New York, dressed in a really tight green outfit and wore a magic decoder ring. They named him Green Lantern, and from there history was made. The Green Lantern was one of the most popular comic franchises in DC Comic’s history. It was so successful that it went on to be adapted into television show, multiple video games and a couple of big screen movies.
Never Heard of BioWorld?
I guess all of that wasn’t enough for the Green Lantern franchise, because BioWorld decided to partner up with DC Comics to produce a crazy cool Green Lantern sock. BioWorld came on to the apparel scene in 1996. The company was formed to design and distribute licensed and private label apparel, such as sleepwear, bags, headwear and of course, casual footwear. Their goal is to translate the brand story into product that is innovative and distinctive as the brand itself, which has led to over 180 major license agreements.
What Is It About This Sock?
Visually the socks are interesting and when I say interesting I mean bold. When you think about the super powers of the Green Lantern (or the magic ring), it was only limited to the imagination of the wearer. When you see this sock, you have to use a little of your imagination. Made with Acrylic, Polyester and Spandex, which bonds together nicely to form a really durable sock. It’s lightweight, green and strong, just like the comic character (I say lightweight because he can fly). The graphics are very detailed with numerous Lantern symbols in multiple size, running all over the sock. The sock is a little thick, way too thick to be considered a dress sock and in my opinion should be worn with a slide on or a sneaker like the Nike Hurrache “Trash Talkin”. The green is a really lively green that ensure people will look once at initial glance. I received so many compliments on them, the first time I wore them. One individual ask where he could find a pair, when I told him he was surprised.
Really Want A Pair?
I am sure you want to know where to find this Iconic sock, as well? Let me be the first to say Kohl’s has some real gems. On sale the price was $9.99, which is a great deal for a pretty swanky sock. However, if you are unable to get them at Kohl’s, try Amazon.com. Right now, they are $16.99 for the pair. Another question that is probably lingering, “Why can’t I go to BioWorldmerch.com and purchase them?” Well, one think I found a little different with this company, they are strictly sell to wholesalers. Yes, I know … so all of their cool items, you will have to pick up elsewhere unless you are a member of their website and in order to be a member you have to have to be wholesale customer.
I really think you will be surprise by what this sock has to offer from the comfort, styling and appeal. Just one slight con against the sock but its more about the company. I find having to be a wholesaler in order to get to this sock or any of the items from BioWorld is a bit tough. However, Kohl’s and Amazon.com are great places to look to find this incredible sock.
