Design studio Native Union is throwing it back to the early aughts with its latest release, which takes inspiration from the iconic iPod Socks every high school student and Apple-obsessed consumer had for a few years.

"Apple’s original iPod Socks were iconic for a reason," they note. "Introduced as a revolutionary new product for the iPod, it was the first time the world saw Apple taking such a fun angle on its own product. Bright, colorful, and instantly recognizable, the iPod Socks became a fan favorite and over the years, inspired DIYs all over. It was a more enjoyable way to style your essential device."

Now — 20 years after the debut of the iPod — they're bringing it back. Only this time, it's for AirPods.

Arriving with a cheeky name — AirPods Beanies — they ship in a pack of four and are cut from 100% recycled materials. They also fit any size AirPods, including AirPods Pro, and sync up with wireless charging through the case with ease.
