Kendall Jenner, 17, models Rob Kardashian’s latest sock collection: so awful?

Kendall Jenner

Poor Kendall Jenner. The last we heard about Rob Kardashian’s genius, Arthur George sock line (sold at Neiman Marcus stores), no one was buying these damn ugly, $30 per pair socks except as gag gifts. For a man who possesses absolutely no shame (remember, Rob told everyone he cries when he sees himself naked because his wang is so small), this is still a problem. Since posing with his mom, Kris Jenner, while she pretended to lose her sh-t wasn’t working to sell these gaudy, overpriced hunks of cloth, Rob has pulled out the big guns. He’s recruited his younger siblings, Kendall and Kylie Jenner to model the latest collection.

Now Kendall is a successful, up-and-coming model in her own right, but even she can’t work any magic where these truly revolting socks are concerned. As you can see, Rob has branched out from not only designing for men but also for women. I guess this is a new challenge for him? Maybe because men and women’s feet differ in width and arch, this could be considered a brave endeavor for old Rob K. Or maybe I’m just kidding myself by giving him the benefit of the doubt. These socks are simply atrocious, and I don’t know why anyone would purchase them, gag gift or not. Am I being too cruel here in my assessment of Rob’s designing talents?

Oh, and in case you were wondering (and I know you were) what Rob Kardashian was doing over the holiday weekend, he was busily tweeting photos of girls’ butts in bikinis. Because he’s classy like that.

    I actually like the socks. I don’t think I would buy them for that price but I do like them

  2. RocketMerry says:

    He’s a dick. Sigh. Why do I not feel repulsed by him?! What the H is wrong with me?!

  3. Elle says:

    This is grose! The other girls are Kendall and Kylie’s friends so they are around 16 too and pimping out his shit line. It’s just so stupid to design socks when most people could care less about what their socks look like.

  4. Feebee says:

    Ah, socks are socks. Hard to get mad even at ugly socks. However I can’t get over the name “Arthur George” with the “by Robert Kardashian”. Soooooo pretentious.

  5. WayPastMyBedtime says:

    The thigh high socks aren’t entirely awful, but then again they aren’t particularly special either. I’m not an expert at buying socks, but thirty dollars (is that like twenty euros?) seems way too expensive for something you can’t even see because it is covered by your shoes.

  6. kittenhayley says:

    I’d buy the thigh high ones…I like them with boots :-)

  7. abbie246 says:

    Some of the socks are okay but what could you wear with them? The colors are so crazy that it will be be hard to find something to match them.

  8. GiGi says:

    The socks aren’t terrible – but what can I say… they’re socks… It’s not like he’s designing actual clothing.

    I do feel bad for the Jenner girls – they’re totally caught in the famewhoring trap their mother has laid, since they’re still minors!

  9. ldub says:

    he’s a tool but the socks and kendall’s modeling and overall “look” aren’t so bad here. did i mention he’s a tool.

  10. anneesezz says:

    My daughter is obsessed with tie dye and did some of her socks this weekend. They look as good as the ones in the second picture. She is seven. Didn’t Rob say he wanted to go to law school like his dad? Let the kid be a lawyer if that’s what he wants to do. I guess PMK figures lawyers don’t make enough $$$ these days. He must be drowning his sorrows in food. A part of me feels sorry for the youngers kids who are afraid to stand up to their crazy, fame hungry mother.

  11. An says:

    Her legs are pretty damn amazing

  12. Katie says:

    I came here for laughs, and ended up hating the Jenner girls for being gorgeous while modeling socks. Socks! Curse you, Celebitchy!

    Although I am a little creeped out by them trying to look all sexy in their brother’s ad campaign. (Not that this family has any concept of the word “boundary,” but still…)

  13. Stef Leppard says:

    You can buy funky socks like that for $1 at target.

  14. Ag says:

    most of these socks are pointless. except for the grey and white ones, those could be passable. but the crazy-colored ones? wtf? who would want to make a “fashion statement” with SOCKS? ridiculous.

  15. Simply Red says:

    I bought a few pairs of his sock collection.. I happen to like them and they are somewhat different. Not bad price wise well depending who you asking.

  16. StormsMama says:

    I CAN NOT WITH HIM

    The tye dye socks are not even good tye dye.
    Ugh. I taught my students 1-3 grade better tye dye techniques.

  17. Yelly says:

    The socks aren’t bad, they’re just WAY overpriced.

  18. Dedrie says:

    Oh wow.. we can purchase that dreaded stupid Kardashian klans crappy rip off socks because little sister is wearing them oh woo.. uh..YEAH?

  19. Adrien says:

    Those things should be called “boner killers”.

  20. Alexis says:

    Anything the K’s do is cheap and low-budget looking to me.

    Kendall is a cute girl, but overall I find her look unremarkable and forgettable. Her face is very plain.

  21. gogoGorilla says:

    I don’t mind the socks, but I think the price is insane.

    Also, his target market is off. Socks are all the rage right now, but it’s mostly with the tween/teen crowd. They go for the versions that come out from sport labels (Nike Elite and such). They’re supposed to be “basketball” socks. They sell for about $12-$20/pair, I think. I know because my kid owns a drawer full of them in every color, which I think is ridiculous, but it’s his allowance…

    Anyway, my larger point was I do think he’s onto something with the sock craze, but I don’t think his target market is going to go for the styles he’s putting out, and his actual market probably can’t afford his prices (plus I don’t think kids generally shop at Neiman’s.)

  22. dorothy says:

    The socks aren’t bad… it’s the people connected to the brand that turns me off. Just not willing to add to the Kardashian treasure chest by purchasing them.

  23. goddesslove says:

    The socks are adorable!

  24. janie says:

    I like the socks, just over priced. Let’s be real, Kendall should have toned muscles & a nice bod, she’s 17!! If she’s on her way to a high fashion career, she can thank Kim. I feel sorry for Rob.. How can he compete with the trash sisters? He’s the only one with an education & he’s still can’t get anywhere. Maybe PMK should put some energy into her only son.

    • TG says:

      He could get somewhere he just doesn’t want to. He wants mommy/PMK to do the work for him. He could put out a résumé and go on interviews for real 9 to 5 jobs like most of us have to, he doesn’t want to actually have to work. Don’t feel sorry for this loser.

  25. DB says:

    I just don’t understand why these pseudo celebrities who fancy themselves designers decide to sell their tacky products for ridiculously insane prices. This just proves their lack of business savvy. Instead of selling $20-30 socks at Neiman Marcus, he should be selling them for $7-10 at stores like Macys, Bloomingdales or Lord and Taylor. I never thought I’d be holding up Jessica Simpson as a role model, but Rob would be wise to steal a few business tricks from her.

  26. Kiddo says:

    Everyone looks so unhappy about the socks. Oh these socks are pissing me off isn’t really such a fantastic advert for them, is it? I guess they are pretending this is serious high fashion business.

  27. Madriani's Girl says:

    No guy I know would wear them but I like the ones for the girls. What’s wrong with them? They’re colorful! No way on God’s green earth I’d spend more than $2.50 per pair for them, though – gag gift or not.

  28. pnichols says:

    I like the socks. I can do without the comment about his penis but he is pretty gross so I could see him saying that.

  29. Relli says:

    These are going to look fantastic at the 2 for 1 bin at TJMAXX. No shade on TJMAXX I love that place but this is so the type of item that ends of there at a mega discount.

    Also, the “do me” faces the little one is always sporting makes me uncomfortable.

  30. A Fan says:

    Nothing against socks, not these, not any.

    She is a beautiful girl…hope she doesn’t mess with her face (or any other body part) like some of her family members.

  31. booboochile says:

    Damn, that hot cup of mocha is foiiiiiiine!

  32. lisa says:

    the little jenner is sort of harsh in the face

    it never stops making me lol that he couldnt just call his socks, socks by krob or whatever. it’s arthur george by krob k. seems like a lot of to do over some overpriced socks no one wants.

  33. Barhey says:

    I find it weird he’s using his sisters as models posing in their underwear, but that’s the Kardashians for you.

  34. TG says:

    I won’t buy any crap from a celeb line. No Jessica Simpson, William Rast, Arthur George, The Honest Company bullcrap from me. Not paying to support these moctresses/moctors lifestyles. Go ahead and make fun of this loser he deserves it. He is such a crybaby.

  35. TheTruthHurts says:

    This round of socks is 1000% better than the first run. The problem is the Jenner girls, they stand out like sore thumbs next to the real models. Nepotism.

  36. moon says:

    Kendall actually has the looks for a real model, although she needs to work on her poses. It’s a shame being part of the Kardashian clique is seriously damaging her brand, no one is going to hire her because the Kardashian connotations could damage their branding.

    • Lisa says:

      Run Kendall run. Don’t stay one day after you turn 18. You can make it as a model but I would distance yourself from Kris, Khloe, Kourtney, & Rob. I do like Bruce. I also like Scott. Bruce gets right from wrong and both Bruce and Scott have been good fathers and spouses.

  37. Fatty Cakes says:

    I swear, Kendall Jenner looks so much like Jacinda Barrett to me. (For ref: http://bit.ly/188n2eW)

  38. Meggin says:

    The Jenner girls are so pretty! But even they can’t save those socks… Some are cute but not 30 dollar cute.

  39. Steffie says:

    I hate that I love those ombré socks. And the ones on the second picture. Waaaaay too expensive, though!
