As the summer in New York is finally giving us the weather that we have so desperately been waiting for, it is time to break out the shorts in exchange for those jeans and chinos that have been hogging up space on those shelves of yours. As athleisure has made it mainstream, the summer of 2018 is all about being comfortable. With joggers being the go-to in bottoms whether it is running errands or having a leisurely day, the jogger is the perfect pant for that in-between comfort and style; so why not take it to the next level and turn it into a pair of shorts? BINGO! Summer of 2018’s newest edition has arrived and it is doing so in style. Grabbing a pair of jogger shorts might be one of the best investments of this summer, and there are several reasons why, some could say, thirteen. But this isn’t a blog to convince you to buy a pair or not, this is about wearing socks, and ultimately it comes down to preference. If you are the sneakerhead that has a closet full of empty shoe boxes, you are more likely to throw on a pair of low cut ankle socks to protect the newest sneaker such as the recent Yeezy releases or a basic but timeless classic such as the Vans Old Skool.
