The 2010 World Cup takes place from June 11 to July 11 this summer—and it's time to choose your battle, uh, foot-gear. Swedish sock company Happy Socks has collaborated with New York-based designer Stephen Wong, head of Wong Wong and former art director of Helmut Lang Studios, to create a limited-edition capsule collection of nationalist socks.
