The Different Types of Socks Seen at THON 2014

Like many kinds of goofy apparel, knee-high socks have become a staple of THON. We decided to walk around the BJC concourse and check out the different types of socks people were wearing. The selection was just as colorful, creative, and cool as many of the hats, tutus, and ensembles that you may have also noticed.

There were some great patterns like swirls, stripes, diamonds and camouflage.

You can never go wrong with Penn State themed socks. From socks with paw prints to ones with the Nittany Lion logo, we’ve seen a lot of these socks in classic blue and even neon!

You’ll find a lot of the red socks like the ones above at the portal entrances, sported by R&R committee members.

Other people had more out-of-the-box socks, like these rainbow unicorn socks.

We didn’t see any socks quite like these musical notes, either. The neon stripes are a classic knee-high sock choice as well.

Different styles of neon-colored leopard prints are quite comme, each one a bit different from the next.
