What came first, the words for fox and socks, or the fact that the words needed to rhyme because their appearance on these Fox in Socks Socks is too adorable to imagine them anywhere else? Well, let's take a closer look at the history behind Fox in Socks Socks. The word fox comes from Old English, spoken during the early Middle Ages, and is derived from fuhsaz from Proto-Germanic, a language spoken roughly 4,000 or 5,000 years ago. It doesn't stop there, however, for fuhsaz comes from the word puḱ-, which meant “thick-haired” in Proto-Indo-European, spoken perhaps around 3500 BC.
Socks is a modern word derived from the Old English word for slipper, socc. That word traces back to the Latin word, soccus, which in turn comes from the Ancient Greek's sykchos. So the origins date back to somewhere in the range of 900 BC to 600 AD.
So fox came first. And then socks. And then these Fox in Socks Socks. An etymology lesson and the cutest pair of socks that you'll own? That's John's Crazy Socks, for you.
