The floor of the BJC is a sea of neon Nike’s every third weekend of February for THON. Dancer’s embrace the bright colors while staying comfortable and practical by wearing one-of-a-kind socks with their favorite sneakers. Valley hit the floor and met the owner’s of some of the brightest, cutest shoe/sock combinations at THON 2015.
Adam Wimmer, sophomore, is dancing for Schuylkill. He sports neon pink, purple, and yellow socks, which conveniently match his bright yellow Nike’s, “a happy coincidence,” said Wimmer.
Nicole Caruso, sophomore dance relations committee member, wears the most adorable Superman socks (cape included). Caruso and her committee members are wearing the socks in honor of their THON captain, who they call “Super Dan”. The socks turned out to be the perfect THON accessory, “The kids love them,” said Caruso.
These brightly striped, winky-face socks are worn by sophomore, Amanda Megee. The Lehigh Valley dancer, chose the socks because they were colorful and fun. Megee said, “I love the winky-face, and so do the kids!”
Our final shoe model is nine year old Quinn, who wears his super-slick, crazy-fast Nike’s because they’re easy to chase people down with and “I love bright colors!”
