Slouch socks were extremely fashionable and popular in the late 80s and early 90s. Today they are making a comeback with all the new trends such as bulky “dad shoes” or cosplay. Slouch socks were popular partly because of their ability to be layered. Slouch socks are a great fashion statement because they can be worn in many different ways. Some people love to scrunch them down to their ankles, wear them up to or above the knee, layer multiple colored socks for a two-tone look, and even wearing them for cosplay.
