According to the Japanese twitter community, the day 28th November is a special day. By pronouncing the date "1128" in numbers, the result will sound similar to いいニーハイ (iini-hai), which means nice knee-high (socks). Hence 28th November is known as いいニーハイの日 (nice knee-high socks day), and it is this day many people post pictures of "knee-highs" to go with the day.

Knee-high socks suit well for ball-jointed dolls as the socks can cover the knee joints as well (source)

Knee-high kick! Well, a different kind of knee-high, I suppose... (source)


  1. I can only assume that a large amount of otaku were snapping shots like crazy that day. That was too cute with the real and the ball-jointed dolls. I am not sure which is which - LOL.

    1. I got flooded with a lot of such photos on my twitter timeline that day. It was only then I learned about this knee-high day. The doll shots are pretty convincing when the joints are covered up and the propotions set right, which is quite impressive work I gotta say!
