Clothing company has teamed up with Valve to created
the first officially licensed Portal socks. They're based on the design of
Aperture Science's Long Fall Boots, the footgear that allows Portal's
protagonist, Chell, to plummet from great heights without taking damage. Unlike
the in-game boots, the socks do not provide protection from such dangerous
falls, but they'll help you look cool as long as you remain safely planted on
The Portal socks cost $10 per pair and you can order them from jinx.com.
They're sold out right now, but expected to be restocked next month.
Unfortunately, they'll continue to come in women's sizes only, and Long Fall
footwear is always knee-high — but don't let that stop you if you're a guy.
With a little hard work and science we bet you'll think of a way to squeeze
your feet into socks created for a woman, and if not, they make a great gift.
