but I didn't realize how potentially profound an idea I had just had.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that the one thing people hate most about going through TSA screening is having to remove their shoes.

You end up shuffling through in socks, stockings, or barefoot on a surface that's been visited hundreds or thousands of times already just that day.

Well guess what?

Wear Acorn Slipper Socks and you won't have to take off your shoes — because you're not wearing any!

From $35.90.

Sales of these ought to go through the roof once this goes viral.

Yo, Acorn — my shoe size is men's 9-1/2.

Yup, they have a sole. They have to come off!

Why wear these? Two words: Tinea pedis.

I'd rather walk barefoot than wear these...

Are people really that weird that they get upset that they have to go through barefoot? I go through in a man-thong and nothing more.

I think they will be considered as shoes because things could be hidden between the sock and sole.
