The Forgotten iPod Sock

A couple of weeks ago, I posed a video looking at iPod socks.

I have the complete box set:

  • Green
  • Purple
  • Gray
  • Orange
  • Pink
  • Blue

I thought that was it. No, there is another:

Red Boston iPod sock

This is a very unusual little knit piece of Apple history. This red iPod sock was a giveaway to members of the public who attended the opening of the Boylston Street Apple Store back in 2008.

While most Apple Store openings of the time were marked with t-shirt giveaways, I like this a lot more. It’s fun, and fits the locale.

My thanks to Thomas Brand for the item. Thankfully it doesn’t add much of a storage requirement to my collection.
