Pantyhose Marketing Move – Package with Crime Scenes

August 3, 2013 under Weird

A  hosiery brand called Walk Socks decided to try a new catchy packaging theme as a pantyhose marketing tool – crime scenes!  How do you like that for an attention grabber?

Men find it so amusing that they can’t resist to buy it for their girlfriend.  It’s just too extraordinary to pass.  I applaud Walk Socks for such a smart pantyhose marketing move!

On the other note though I wonder why the brand is no longer around.  At least I was not able to find anything about it online.  Could it be that such a shock factor somehow was just too much for the public?

On another note, in Russia in 1969 there was a serial killer, Yuri Tsuman, who would only target women in black pantyhose.  He would take off all the clothes from the victim, except pantyhose.  Actually he would demand to take off everything and then only put on pantyhose and that’s it.  Women were afraid to wear dark pantyhose on the street at night.  He killed 5 women and then got caught, being granted a lifetime in prison.

  • In fact i did a little search in the net and the brand does exist. It is a small hosiery manufacturer in Greece. walk.gr

    I will add it to my directory 🙂

      Great, thanks for letting me know. I was curious what happened to them.
      I didn’t know Greece made pantyhose, but if that industry can still survive the bad economy, that’s awesome.
