The Sock Hop

    It’s hip, it’s folksy, it’s exotically stocked, and it’s almost all socks. The aptly-names Sock Hop carries a surprising breadth of stockings for a store of its size, and includes very high quality socks from designers around the world. Owner Vincent Nasserbakht stocks his Elizabeth Street shop with footwear for discerning tastes, he said. “People sometimes don’t realize how much they have as an option. They explore things that maybe they didn’t realize they had within their reach: different materials, patterns. It’s a very particular and personal thing for each person. There’s no such thing as a best sock for everyone,” he said. Nasserbakht admits the store is a lot of fun, calling his design aesthetic “ad hoc and post haste” while spinning vinyl records for customers. The Sock Hop also features fine leather luggage, a range of suspenders, and some nature-themed necklaces and pendants.Show lessRead more
