Japanese Foot Gloves

Just thought you should know about these. At first I actually thought it was a stupid idea for someone like me who gets cold fingers from wearing gloves (poor circulation, I guess), but then someone convinced me to try these socks and they're really warm and comfy! Incidentally, they aren't a novelty item here in Japan. They are really common. I imagine the idea grew out of the more traditional 'tabi' socks that are better known. You know, the white ones that allow for the wearing of jandals (flip flops)when donning your best kimono.(see random link for tabi pictures)
