"SOCKS is a fun, interactive routine with a killer surprise ending they won't forget!"
- Richard Sanders

"Michel Huot's SOCKS knocked mine right off my feet! So clever and simple with a fun and organically visual payoff, this piece will play just as strongly in a corporate strolling environment as it will in a casual private party. Michel's performance and explanation made me smile from start to finish. Just great!"
- Francis Menotti

"SOCKS knocks my socks off. It's funny, mysterious, and not at all difficult. I will use it, so will you."
- Marc Salem

"SOCKS is unique and super strong. It is so rare to have something that combines magic, comedy and surprise in such a powerful way for the close-up/parlor performer. This is going right into my repertoire!"
- Marc Desouza

Michel Huot's SOCKS is the most attention-grabbing, fun piece of mentalism we've released in years. SOCKS is simple and strong in premise: you display two packets of cards with different sock designs on each one. You explain the premise: the spectator will choose two socks, and you hope that the spectator can find the only perfect match. Turning them over, two at a time, you show that each pair is mismatched. When the spectator says stop, you place their selections to the side, face down. See where this is going? Well, it's not what you think.

The spectator turns over the two chosen socks to reveal they do NOT match at all: yellow stars on one sock and purple stripes on the other. But you then lift up your pant cuffs to reveal that YOU ARE WEARING THE EXACT SOCKS THAT THEY CHOSE. This hits people hard and comes as a complete surprise. It's not a card or coin or rope trick, either. It's a mentalism piece with an article of clothing, and something everyone can relate to.

For the finale, you snap your fingers, and show that every single pair of socks is now a perfect match!

SOCKS comes with everything you need, including the socks, specially printed cards, and a gorgeous wallet to carry them in. It's easy to do and takes up virtually no pocket space. It is an IDEAL opener for walk-around performers.

We've even included a BONUS effect in which you predict a chosen card on the bottom of the socks you're wearing. The socks and the specially printed cards are high quality and built to last thousands of performances.

Ok I’m going to go ahead and be the bad guy here. I love this effect and great value for money...however...keep in mind that the video shows the best case force. By this I mean that performance is not 100%, which to me is fine but the promo doesn’t seem transparent about it. If it was 100% this would be more expensive. Again really good value for money but I don’t want folks to be disappointed, such will lead to bad reviews and in this day and age that will kill sales anyway.

Truthfully if you do t know how to work a t**** f**** this is practically worth it just for that.

Volume on SOCKS S***S Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 23rd, 2019

The Penguin Magic buyer is directed to the Vanishing Inc. site for the download, where the volume is barely audible.

The download teaser on the Penguin Magic site IS audible-- wso don't say it's my desktop.

My second gripe is cards...cards. How many cards do we have to see flipped over... That's the main drawback to any card trick where there's a lot of dealing. Takes too long.

Unless this is some parody of boring card tricks.

The ending is very good, but Huot didn't think enough about the middle -- how to speed it along.

And then there are the suggested forces which put even more cards on the table.

It's a slow trick. I'm not going to stop here and improve the pace for them. But you should. Huot definitely should've.

Size does matter!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 29th, 2019
I’ve shopped with Penguin for years and I’d like to think Penguin realise the customers are a mix of ages and sizes so would supply large socks that would fit everyone. What’s the point of socks that only fit children. Wearing the socks is the reveal so I can’t use this as they don’t fit. I’m an English size 10 and I made the mistake of forcing them on before realising they would be harder to get off. They’re now ruined. This trick is good if you’ve got small feet but not if you’re an adult male. The fact the performance is by a male who doesn’t look like a person who wears small sizes makes this even more frustrating as surely the performer understands the importance of socks that fit so would have recommended larger sized socks? I won’t be performing this as the reveal loses it’s impact when I pull out some torn socks from my pocket!! Maybe there’s a joke here about small feet but I’m not laughing right now.

4 stars Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 27th, 2019
Forcing which the author offers. Does not work 100% (
The author also offers other options for imposing a card. They are not so good ((
I am using a different method.
If you are an experienced magician. You can find a solution, a great effect.

socks are small. The upper part of the socks is very narrow. Difficult to wear (((

It doesn’t Socks Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 21st, 2019
Wow. This is a great effect. Today alone I did it 4 times and I usually don’t perform because of stage fright but today I did it and i knocked it out of the park. 3 people after the first time this morning at a business meeting want me to do their Christmas parties ( what have I done). There is a way to do this without the @@@@@@ f@@@@ and it is 100 %. It really is a great effect with 2 stunning endings. A must have

Great routine!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 25th, 2019
I am relatively new to magic, and this routine has been a huge help for building my performance confidence because of how simple it is, because of the great reaction it gets every time, and because when you buy it, you really get an entire routine.

Fun Trick Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 29th, 2021
What a fun idea. I've read a lot of criticism about the manner in which the card is "chosen". If it's not your cup of tea (in fact it wasn't mine), come up with a different way (which I did). There a some tricks your perform for strictly lay audiences, some for magicians and some for both. I'd put this strictly for lay audiences which frankly are my favourite audience. The props are beautifully made with 2 kicker endings. Fun Fun Fun

The spectators love it ! Very easy to do, so original, and yo can personalize your presentation and the forcing method. I got it in Open Box, but i would paid the full price! Very good mentalism product.

Big reactions Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 25th, 2019
I read all the reviews. Honestly, the main force works just fine. I can see how itś a not ¨sure fire¨ for some people, but thereś others presented. THEY work just fine as well. I think at this point, you should be able to do a basic force.
The reaction you get from audiences is fantastic. The reveal when you pull up your pant legs kills. If you could work in the force on the socks, even better.
The only reason Iḿ giving this 4 stars instead of 5 is because I would ABSOLUTELY love to have a second or third pair of mismatched socks to change the ending now and again.
The socks fit just fine. Iḿ a size 10-1/2 and theyŕe pretty good quality as well, I´m not sure what other people were talking about with the sock quality.
Well worth the money.

The ''out of the box'' predictions always impress the spectators.I have performed it two times.The first time i tried the d***** t***** f**** and it didn't work but i handled the situation with the out that he teaches.I don't think that i like this kind of presentation for one simple reason.When it works it seems like a real miracle,when it doesn't work you will feel this ''fear'' that somebody might realized what you are doing.The whole idea of equivoque is well known to non-magicians and if not you don't know if a really clever person catches the equivoque.In the instructional video he teaches some other forces that are 100%.I think i will take the path of the 100%...Now for the socks...As many people said the socks that they provide are one size and in my case they are small i have to strugle in order to wear them so i know that i cannot wear them for all night long.For some working magicians this might be an issue because you will have to find a way to wear them and then take them off if you don't want to feel uncomfortable all the night.This is a good trick and you will get amazing reactions.This trick was a little overpriced for what you get but as i said this is something different in your set.
