Socks for Shoes

As I may (or may not) have mentioned, I’ve recently transitioned to minimalist running shoes. I ran a marathon in Converse last year, and then decided it was time to change my running style. I started out in Vibram Five Fingers. Then Leon mentioned to me that Vivobarefoot makes every day shoes. The kind you can wear to work. I’ve bought… let’s say a couple of pairs over the last few weeks. My favourite are these little boots:

They are super flat, and have really flexible soles, but the tops are still made of proper leather. In winter I’ll wear them with tights, or under trousers with normal handknit socks. Since the weather is still warm, I’ve been wearing them with skirts and bare legs. I’ve tried wearing them with sneaker liners, but those are too short. Normal socks are too long. I have been wearing them with commercial sports socks, but I’m not a big fan of commercial socks anymore, and all my commercial sports socks are white, and even if other people can’t see them, looking down I can:
And then I remembered this ball of black Tofutsies  that’s been sitting in my stash since March 2013, because black socks are not really  that pretty. I matched them with Lady Tryamour Socks, from The Knitters Book of Socks,  and I think they will do the job nicely.
