Dancing is all in the feet, as they say. So, it makes sense that Happy Socks, the Swedish sock company known for their playful and vibrant designs, has launched a new Beatles collection so you can dance to the Fab Four in style.

More from Variety

The lineup includes designs inspired by the iconic band’s most memorable album art, such as the All on Board Sock, whose psychedelic style blends imagery from The Yellow Submarine film, and The Name Of Sock which features the foursome’s band logo in yellow, blue and orange.

Happy Socks is far from the only brand to lean into the Beatles’ ongoing fandom. The band’s journey —  from their humble Liverpool beginnings to their incredible rise to Beatlemania fame to their acrimonious breakup in 1970 — has been meticulously tracked from avid fans and anthologists alike. From Philip Norman’s “Shout!” to Hunter Davies’ “Beatles Book,” readers can get a candid, honest glimpse into the lives of the English rock band through dozens of collector’s items.

Below, check out the best Beatles merch — for every type of Fab Four fan.

Acclaimed music anthologist and writer Philip Norman utilizes years of research and first-hand interviews with those close to the Fab Four in this expansive biography, published 11 years after the iconic rock band split up and, most notably, a year after John Lennon’s assassination. The epic tale charts the English stars from their humble beginnings in Liverpool, to their astonishing heights of fame, to their acrimonious split. This edition is updated to include Paul McCartney’s 1997 knighting and Lennon’s 1980 assassination.

John Lennon has cited Braun’s biography as the most honest account of the band’s hey-day, even better than Hunter Davies’ much more popular, and also very good, biographical “Beatles Book.” Braun takes readers through a nothing-is-off-limits ride-along with the band-members, showcasing each musician’s famous wit, even when it gets them in trouble at times.

The “Beatles Anthology” is a must-read for anyone who lived through Beatlemania or is curious about the psychedelic hippie craze of the 1960s, centered around the seminal music of bands like the Beatles. The extraordinary project was put together by Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo themselves, with the help of Yoko Ono following John Lennons’s death, and includes first-hand accounts of their personal upbringings and rise to fame as a group. It is, in effect, the only Beatles autobiography, offering the most candid glimpse into the lives of one of the most historic rock bands of all time.
