Foot Fetish?

No.

Sock fetish?

Uh, yeah.

Hats?

Yeah, those too.

In this day and age of custom team kits about the only way to have some sense of individuality is by selecting your own socks and hats. I've come to conclusion that Capo makes just about the best foot covers available and this year they brought out a new line of Olefin stockings. I wouldn't even consider the 6cm cuff version so the decision was 12cm or 15cm. And...if 12 is good, 15 must be better. Right? Right! So enter the Capo Strada, 15 cm of black sock heaven, made even better with the Italian Tri Colore and the white strip up the back.


I also just couldn't resist nabbing an Omega Pharma-Lotto cap to add to the collection. It's a pretty blatant rip off of the Rapha Focus colors but when Phillipe Gilbert is rocking the Belgium knee warmers like he does and winning every classic on the calendar, I just couldn't resist my super tifosi urges.
