Imagine if your socks could talk...what would they tell you? it's a bizarre notion, but this was the crazy idea that launched ChattyFeet Socks: a fun footwear project and "rebellion against boringness" by two London entrepreneurs with a genuinely childlike sense of fun. Their socks have names (yes, these socks have names) like "Professor Brian Sox" and "Don Cottone" and are all made in adult sizes...

Here's a word from ChattyFeet's founders (and their friends) about this project, which so far they've funded completely by themselves - and this is where you come in...


Gil explains the thinking behind his project thus: When we were kids we thought being a grown up would be non-stop computer games, seeing our friends, going into space, eating waffles and getting to pick all the songs on long car journeys. 

Then when we actually arrived in grownupland we found out it actually involves paying rent and having a job and fixing the dishwasher and making PowerPoint presentations. Boo to that!"

If you'd like to become a supporter of this very worthy cause, you can pledge any amount from £1 over on Kickstarter to help Gil and Humberto reach their funding target. They only have one day to go and are very close to their £7k goal, so please dig deep! Sock puppets' lives depend upon your generosity...
