Sock Invaders! Quirky 80s Themed Socks for Retro Gamers

So you think socks are boring? Well, they really don't have to be, and by the time you've finished reading this post which features some very quirky 80s themed socks especially for retro gamers, I hope to have changed your mind!

So who exactly is a retro gamer?  It could be someone in their 50s (like myself) who remembers almost breaking the joystick while trying to destroy endless rows of Space Invaders on Taito's arcade cabinet at the local pub (which was often covered in cigarette burns), while trying to avoid spilling half a pint of Harp lager on the already beer-soaked carpet.

If you're looking for a fun gift for a gaming Dad, maybe for his birthday or Father's Day, and you want to let him know that he is the best Dad in the world, then let me introduce to you the Super Daddio T-shirt!
