Playing Footsie

Get your flirt on this February with a pair of Nookies.

Just in time for the official month of love comes Nookies, The Original Pleasure Sox and its limited-edition, thigh-high “Luscious Louann.” While traditional lingerie may be a tough buy for that certain someone in your life, “foot lingerie” is a fail-safe alternative, says Nookies cofounder Chris Baeza of Malvern.

Since launching last November, Nookies has generated major buzz—and for good reason: It’s one of the only products of its kind available. Baeza and her partners came up with the idea after reading a study by Dutch scientists. It concluded that women would have more fun in the bedroom simply by keeping their feet warm.

Knowing that most socks couldn’t be classified as sexy, Baeza and cofounder Susie Shina designed their line in chic, sophisticated patterns and colors, using a temperature-regulating, high-grade wool that has the softness of cashmere.

“Women have loved wearing them, and men have loved buying them,” says Baeza, who plans on expanding the Nookies brand to loungewear and home-related products.

Sold online and at select boutiques, Nookies can be found locally at Jennifer on the Avenue, 724 W. Lancaster Ave., Berwyn, (610) 640-0405. Or visit
