Rob Kardashian Wants You to Trade in Your Tube Socks for His “Funky” Dress Socks
Rob Kardashian knocked our socks off as a finalist on Dancing With the Stars – but now he’s about to get us back in a big way. While his sisters are off cleaning up messes in Haiti, preparing for a massive move, and dealing with morning sickness, Rob has some special plans of his own: a dress sock business. Yes, really.
It’s true: Rob Kardashian’s next (or is it the first?) business venture is into the wonderful world of dress socks. “I feel like everybody likes a dress sock,” Rob told The Huffington Post in all seriousness Wednesday. “No one wants to see a boring tube sock.”
Rob’s kind of known for his own outlandish collection, and why not spread the love? Plus, Rob’s line sounds pretty fun. He says will include a lot of “funky, colorful and cool designs” and confesses he has a lot of ideas because he's “really into it.”
In true KDash fashion, Rob’s wasted no time getting the ball rolling on his new project. He’s already meeting with manufacturers and says fans will hear more about the line very soon.
Unlike his socialites sisters' various ventures, Rob’s posh socks won’t carry the family name (or come monogrammed with his initials). “This is something I have been wanting to do,” he said. “I don’t care for it to be a ‘Kardashian’ thing.” However, there’s an opening for Momager Kris Jenner to infiltrate the project: Rob said he hasn’t officially picked a name for the line. Better get on that, dude!
While we’re totes impressed that in one year Rob’s transformed from a food-hoarding, beach-bumming reality star to full-fledged businessman, we’re even more flabbergasted that he plans to do all the work on his line while splitting time between Los Angeles and Dallas, where he’ll once again shack up with sister Khloe and her NBA player husband Lamar Odom, who was just traded to the Dallas Mavericks.
However, he doesn’t seem to see that as an obstacle. “I want to experience Dallas,” Rob said. “It’s a new city where I see new business opportunities.”
