Posted:um socks is merely a description...
you can buy long knee high socks with no ankles and that would make good sock poi... If it makes you feel better you can call them practice poi... but that doesnt really do them justice...

socks arent a big deal., its what you do with them that counts

Posted:say you're buying them for a friend if anyone cares enough to ask you, its hardly a 'gay' thing to do, buying socks is buying socks, you could even say you're buying them to make poi.

Aim high and you'll know your limits, aim low and you'll never know how high you could have climbed.

Posted:god! dude sorry to if i sound a bit annoying but just go into any girls clothes shop and look for some socks, any that are long enough, altho u can get cool ones that are stipey and cool colours, or just go to a market like others say and while your doing this just don't worry bout what people think cos it doesn't really matter does it?

Posted:I remember some of the HoP boys went round the whole of Camden testing the elasticity of pretty much every pair of knee-length girls' socks there.

I never think twice about buying men's clothes for someone else, and plenty of guys buy clothes or underwear for their girlfriend. It's just socks!

I used to have a pair of sock poi.. which were in fact just my old rugby socks. Long and red. Like a long red snake. But they tangled better than snakes though smile

But really Joe, if you cant go into a shop to buy socks..... theres little hope for the future of the Empire frown

Posted:ok, first off, get over buying girls socks. i'm sure that shop assistants have seen peolpe buying a lot more embarrassing things then a pair of socks, especially a pair the you don't intend to wear.

secondly, the one's that i use look like they are meant to be footy socks or something. nothin girly about em smile i bought them at a shop in australia called target that i guess is like a department store. but i'm sure you could get them in a sports shop, then you'd look manly tongue

go get em tiger

Posted:Claire's Accessories and Topshop usually sell long socks - they are almost always more expensive than a market stall though and usually don't have as good a range. Sports shops will also sell rugby socks, but they're never as pretty.

They're not women's socks anyway, I think they look great on a man. :P One size fits all, right wink
