SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Mayor Domenic Sarno owns the first pair of socks with a Springfield theme.
The socks feature a design of the city’s skyline, along with a basketball. The socks are the work of Springfield fashion designer Lenny Underwood, who owns the “Upscale Socks” clothing brand.
Underwood told 22News why he created the Springfield socks.
“I was born and raised in Springfield, I wanted to have a way that represents me, I just knew it was part of me,” Underwood said.
The socks feature the Springfield skyline and basketball.
“Lenny is not only a creative photographer but fashion designer too. I’ve purchased Lenny’s prior sock creations and they wear great. Proud that he’s now moved to honor our Springfield with his signature ‘City of Homes’ socks – can’t wait to wear them!”Mayor Sarno
The Springfield-themed socks went on sale on Wednesday for $15 a pair at the Sullivan Regional Visitors Center across from the Mass Mutual Center.
They’re also available through the “Upscale Socks” website.
