Review: Talika Foot Therapy Socks
Squelch. Squelch. Small farting noise. Giggling from the kitchen.
"What the freak is on your feet?" my flatmate squeaked. They are my new socks. My new, mint-chocolate-chip-flavoured, or at least scented, moisturising socks.
They are minty green in colour, look like swollen sports socks, and are lined with a gel-like substance that oozes a mysterious moisturiser along with vitamins and botanical oils for your skin.
They squelch when you walk, an experience like walking in water-drenched trainers - slightly slimy, a bit awkward and not very pleasant.
More than a little grossed out, I flopped onto the couch, propped my minty-green feet onto the sofa and stared at them quizzically. Thankfully, I only had to wait 20 minutes for it to do its thing, after which time I passed them on to the rest of the household for a sniff and a giggle.
Strangely, after removing the beasts, my feet felt wonderfully soft and moisturised. My skanky scales had softened and, if you must know, the crumby dry bits around my heels had almost disappeared.
While these silly-looking socks cost a lot, they can be reused up to 30 times, making the cost per wear almost worthwhile. Farewell, cruddy dry feet.
Talika Feet Therapy Socks, $111 a pair, from Mecca Cosmetica.
